I have went through a lot of tires in the past few years. The Bridgestones are one of the best overall. The Michelins hold up the best. The bridgestones corner well and grip well, just wish they would last a little longer.
I was holding out on my last 756 but it was starting to break loose easily and on the verge of chunking so I mounted this one up. This tire is great! I have ridden it in sand, loamy ripped soil and hard pack. Great traction pretty much everywhere. Surprised at how well it handles transitions from loose to hard pack sections with good predictability. Definitely gives confidence in sections where i am usually worried about the back end coming around after breaking loose on a sweeper leading into a jump.
This is a great tire for medium to hard packed dirt, I didn't realize just how bad my current tire was till I put this tire on and did some riding. The Bridgestone 404 is on the top of my list for rear tires from now on.
This is one of the top rated moto tires. After trying one, now I know why... Honestly, I was surprised that I could actually tell the difference from other tires I have tried. I ride off road trails In mixed conditions, mainly dry and rocky (California) and this tire simply hooks up!
Wow, this tire is a must if you hare scramble. I would say it is equal to the MX51 as well. I have run this tire for almost a year and when it gets sloppy, this thing is still pulling hard. Rocky hill climbs are treaturous for those behind you! It finds grip and slings rocks. On hard pack it may feel a little squirly because of the tall knobs, just get it back in med dirt and hit it.
In Bridgestone tires, the 203/204 are for soft terrain(sand/mud), the 403/404's are for intermediate, and the 603/604 are for hardpack. Typically the 403/404 combo is the ideal choice because it works well over a variety of different terrains.

YZ250 better tire?
I ride in hard terrain when its winter and sandy when the summer hits. i was wondering if this would be the tire for me and/or what tire i should consider before buying. I have tried IRC M5B tires and they are great but they are used up within 5 rides.
This tire is an awesome tire. Myself and couple of other guys here use these tires exclusively on our bikes. It hooks up well in almost all conditions and wears really good. I much prefer it to some of the other intermediate tires out there such as the MX51's and the Michelin Star crosses. If you are looking to match up front tires also, the M203 works a little better in the soft stuff and the the M403 is better for the intermediate and hard.
the stock tire on that bike is a 100/90-19, that's why it's coming up as not fitting. If you would like to go up to the 110/90-19 all you need to do is profile your bike as a 450 or 250 2 stroke. Or just give us a call and we set you up over the phone...
