Default Front tire suggestions? Tubliss?

I just put a MT43 with the tubliss set up on the rear of my WR250 and really like it. I will be setting the Gas Gas up the same way. The only draw back for me was I noticed a little less braking traction with the knobby gone. This didn't bother me much since I do most of my braking with the front anyway. Does anyone have a front magic combo to go with the MT34 and the tubliss? Is the tubliss as noticeable of an improvement on the front? I have been riding mostly in rocky terrain on tight single track.

I've always been happiest on Gassers with Michelin Comp 4, I think the S12 is essentially the same tyre without approvals.

I tried 7psi in the rear tire thinking it would be a good starting place and that I could always raise or lower the pressure but it hooked up so well I didn't bother I just rode.

MT43 on the rear with 5 or 6 psi. and a scorpion pro on the front with 7 or 8 psi. works great on CO trails.

One of my favorites is the Michelin Starcross MS3. It works across a wide range of conditions and wears well.

I like the Dunlop MX31 on the front with.6-8 psi and Tubliss on the front. The Michelin S12 XC its also good, but for me the Dunlop crossed over into different terrain better and lasts longer.

With a trials tyre I like 4-6 psi. It's pretty amazing.
