(funny how my newsreader always warns me that you're posts are spam :)

Yes, it IS possible. I think they used D756's for the eggo molds.

I'm running a 756 rear on the KDX now and it has been a great tire, Don't
have any personal experience with the MX51 yet, but this was posted on
Georgia offroad from a similar query earlier today.....

[quote="Slo Mo"]I think Paul is right, different tires will suit different
riding styles. While many really like the new Dunlop MX51, I didnt really
care for it and it was completely worn out after 13 hours of riding
primarily prepped MX tracks. I just put on a set of 756's due to the cheap
sale price and the initial ride was awesome, but I can tell they will not
last long at all.

My all time favorite may be the Michelin MS3. You would be surprised how
long the MS3 will wear despite being a medium-soft tire. The old Pirelli
MT32 on the rear and MT83 on the front was also a great set-up.[/quote]

Cycle Gear often has good prices on 756s. That was one of the
places I checked and they don't even have them listed any more.

Yeah, that's why we ran the 43 in the front... Anyway, I asked the Cycle
Gear guy about them today he said the new replacement is the same tread
pattern, exactly, just a softer compound. Of course that really sucks to
ride in the hard clay we ride in, I suppose they will break down
quicker. Sir Tony likes Bridgestones at Rocky and it is his track...

Rowdy Mouse Racing, I am made of a softer compound too...

If the Cycle Gear guy was trying to say the MX51 is the same tread
pattern as the 756, he's doing a typical Cycle Gear guy job of
spreading bullshit.

I have in my garage a 756 and an MX51 and they are significantly
different. Matter of fact, the Dunlop MX51 tread is almost a carbon
copy of the Michelin S2 that I'm replacing...
