The Kenda Washougal K775 is rated above average compared to its peers. The Kenda K775 is recommended for soft/intermediate terrain. Fairly consistent positive reviews for use in sloppy conditions, tire has good side knobs that aid in getting through the slop. Some reports of chunking.
The Shinko 520 front and rear were both highly rated. Like the tire for varied terrain. Hooks up like a soft tire but lasts well. No reports of chunking in the reviews. The Shinko 520 does not distort under high power load and is a great all around tire.

One reviewer likes the Michelin Starcross MH3 better for racing and handling in the grass. One rider reported chunking on a 525 in roots/rocks. Overall the tire has average reviews.
The Maxxis Maxxcross Desert IT M7304D/M7305D is specifically designed for durability in the desert. Consistenly positive reviews of the tire on single track and trails. Only complaint was the tire is a bit difficult to mount.
