The m59 is kind of the standard for NE woods up front. I NEVER understood this, as the side knobs rip off if you look at the tire wrong.
That golden phatty everyone rages about is just a tubby version of the 59. Same pattern, just bigger overall.
I've not run that Bridgestone rear. I have one I put screws in, I don't remember loving it or hating it in the woods, but I do remember taking it off for a trials tire.
I'm still stuck on the irc ve35 front, and then whatever's clever out back. My "race" wheels will probably sport a mt16 full time, as that thing is pretty damn good just about everywhere, and my "regular" wheels will get a Dunlop at81 next, then some hybrid thing that's still at clinton's, and then who knows what, probably another tt.
