Another tire thread - Best Front offroad tire for 640 Adventure?

I'm running MT21's now which are a very good compromise, but what has everyone found to be the best front for knarly, rutted, muddy offroad? I do not find the front end to feel as planted as my bud's 640 enduro in the woods, but he is running Michelin s-12 (maybe m-12) which I will definitely swap the front for.
Looking at the frame specs there is only a 1/2 degree difference in castor or rake (don't have the specs in front of me), and forks are 1 or 2mm larger on the adventure, with everything else about the same, but his bikes front feels and turns like a DRZ400 by comparison. I've raised the fork tubes up to 10mm with little improvement. (even with a light fuel load)
I'm even considering different triple clamps if the Michelin doesn't help. The idea is to get it to turn better at lower speeds, as I don't have 90mph desert where I live.
