anyone running a pure off-road mx based tire? My bike will never see the street with the 18/21 combo. I've been looking at the AT81s and the mx31s. I currently have mx31s, but they are old and dried out.

Hi. Any update you can share on how this tire is working out? Thanks

I run tires that happen to be dot.

I like the kenda washaugal front and the motoz tractionator st and it (they're dot) or pirelli mt16 rears, the kenda trackmaster rears ok too and dot.

Off road tires need to suit your terrain, find out what others run in your area. The ones im running are used by lots of guys I ride/race with around here because they work good, we have a combo of mud, roots, rocks and sometimes sand.

Just an fyi incase it matters the xcms rear is NOT DOT like the matching front is, all pirelli front tires are DOT but only some rears are.

Im curruntly running a 110/100 mt16 rear its huge and not DOT but does it ever hook up in the nasty stuff:thumb: , I have 13-50 gearing, I liked it with a tiny rear tire (100/100 tm2) but it feels tall offroad with the big mt16.

I run XCMH tires. The front is DOT and the rear 110/100-18 is DOT as well.

PostSubject: Dual Set-up   Fri Oct 16, 2015 5:13 pm

I'm sure somebody has tried this, so I'll ask. I'm thinking a serious dirt tire in the back, probably D606, and a serious street tire, Distanzia or Shinko 707 or something. I ride down highways to and from school most the time and I ride in gravel/rough rocks every two weekends or so, whenever I get a chance. I don't want to constantly alternate between tires, and the TWs just aren't doing it for me anymore. It's either this set-up, or the TKC80s. What do you guys think?

Get some IRC TR8 tires, 1/2 way between a 606 and a tkc80 and much cheaper than either. thumb

I've run the TR8's here spring to fall, and they're a big improvement over the trailwings. Make sure you air them down for the dirt or they like to skate on the surface. Not a bad tire for the street at all. They feel comfortable leaning way over, but they like pavement grooves. Air them up for the pavement and down for the dirt, and they're a pretty good compromise tire in my opinion. NOT a desert tire though, they don't like loose dirt/sand/dust on top of the desert hardpack.

My Kenda Parker Desert Terrain tires just showed up today. Merry Christmas to me! I'll spoon them on next week and hope for a clear day to make a test run in the cold.

Well, the Mitas C16/17 Stoneaters have come off my trusty ride, and have been replaced with these:


Bring in the Pirelli Scorpion Pro's, apparently the most aggressive DOT knobby on the market.  These things are pretty aggressive, I agree.   The compound is hard, so I'm hoping to get a good return from these.
Offroad...all I'm gonna say is it's the next best thing to an orgasm. Very happy

Hey Shewolf - i've been following your tire reviews for some time now. How is this latest set holding up for you? Rating?

Thanks!

Thanks for the info though. Cheers.
