Welcome back. I use an MX51 by Dunlop on the YZ125 my son rides and have had great luck so far. We have had that tire on teh bike for a good 50-65 hours now and ride the same terrain and it is now needing replaced with about 45% tread left. Front tire is still well over 80%, but my son does not ride as hard as I do, and a good portion of that time was on sand in Florida.
I use either a Kenda Millville for my 300 or the Pirelli XCMH seems to be a good tire as well. I ride the same terrain as you for the most part and after one ride the XCMH looked brand new and I tortured the damn thing. Mud, hardpack, gravel, dirt, rocks, roots...I went through it all and it came out like a champ.
All the tires I mentioned are fair priced via RockyMountain as well, so see what they offer for you and go from there. I have heard great things about Maxxis as well, but I have never tried them. I plan to try them though due to what I have heard about them.
Welcome back Hondarider!
Another vote for the MX 51s. I don't have them on the little KX, but I only ride that on my property (all dirt). The KTM's on the other hand were ridden on bedrock, dirt, loose gravel and hardpacked sand. I think the 51's actually come stock on all the new KTM's.
Good to see your doing aright 22.
I also use the MX51's but I ride track. I will keep using them because the traction is the best yet. I think they wear a little fast though. Probably due to there softer rubber.
