    Should have added this to my first post but any advice on S-12 rear psi for fast, dry conditions?
    Running an M-12 up front and it does wel in everything but looks like Big Buck will be a little dusty and don't have the funds for a new rear.

    I run 10 in my back tires, 11 if it's real rocky.

    The S12 and most soft terrain tires are actually a harder rubber compound to reduce knobby flex and get better bite in soft dirt/mud. A hard terrain tire uses softer rubber so it will grip the hard pack better. Anyway you will be fine with the S12 just run lower air pressure so the tire will grab the ground a little better.
