Indy, is it a soft tire? I don't mind changing them out frequently if they stick. The IT front seems to skate too much for my tastes when I'm really on it through a fast corner. I need something that stays a little more planted.
No it is a soft/intermediate tire that works very well on hard pack as well!

Last enduro i rode, the WR was easily going up the hard option climbs that very few other bikes could get up. The wear rate on the IT is very good too. Significantly better than the dunlop that came off there.
I have changed from the Maxxis IT front to a Michelin M12, and gained a little front end grip in poorer conditions.
I'll happily run the Maxxis' on the rear from now on though. Great tyres in my opinion.

Getting back to the Maxxis, they are well respected by those who ride long distances, they hold up forever. They're real tough tires. I just put a set of IT's and Bridgestone Ultra's on my fathers 06. The rear IT with the Ultra tube is a challenge to install to say the least, but he'll never get a flat... I don't think the IT's are the best tires for everything but they're great for what they are, a long lasting tire...
PS, since they're made in Dongchi Taiwan does that mean we can now buy them at Walmart?... hahahaha

Does anyone have any riding time on the pavement with the IT tire? Had a dunlop 606 on the drz and that was decent. I won't be doing much road riding, but will definitely be connecting trails which can sometimes be 15-20 miles at a time.
I have ridden my WR to work a few times, about 25 miles round trip and the IT tires seem just fine on the pavement.
