Have run Ac10s three sets, six day extremes and now on maxxis IT all good the Acs do last very well.

Lots of people have said that ac fronts are dangerous but to be honest I cant tell much difference.

I use Metzeler Unicross, similar to Pirelli MT21 in wear and multisurface handling.

Mitas CO2...they are a large profile tyre (although they are still measured at the 140/80 size) so you may find the back of the bike feels a touch higher plus they are closer to the swingarm due to their size. I found them better on hard terrain rather than in the mud but they last for ages. For mud, I recommend...

Michelin Comp's...you can't beat them but road work can seriously shag them out quite quickly...or

Maxxis Enduro's...in my opinion nearly as good as the Michelin's and they last a bit, not much, but a bit longer.

Hope that helps.
