Besides $15 more for the Desert IT, what's the difference in the two?

The Desert IT has a beefier side wall. If I'm changing them myself I go with the regular IT, which is easier to mount.

Hey I'm kinda cheap, live on a budget and don't like buying tires every two months. So I tried the desert IT, only after three or so rides and I noticed the huge ware and knobs breaking off. Mostly ride in the cal deserts, Barstow, Cal City, and Ocotillo Wells. Heard a lot about the M.D.I.T. and I thought is was the one tire I used the least. I still want to try the M.D.I.T. 120 or 130? :applause:

the dessert maxxis IT does have a much stiffer sidewall. it lasted me a long time in the arizona desert.

i've also had good luck with the kenda carlsbad tire.

Does the "dessert" IT come with sprinkles or nuts? I couldn't resist...

I just mounted a new standard IT on the rear wheel this morning and I'm not going back to the desert version for one reason. The standard is so much easier to mount. Combined with the UHD tubes I run, it is damn near impossible to mount/remove without a tire machine. BTW, the Transworld MX video w/ Doug Shopinsky is great for fine tuning your tire mounting skills. I used a couple of his tricks and it went on like buttah...SC

I put on another 120 as that's all I run. Other than up and down the block, I haven't given the Dr. D a good check ride. From what I've seen however, the Dr. D is a great pipe and also seems quieter than the Ti Powercore. My low end also seems a little better. I'm going riding in a few days, after which I'll post my final opinion...SC
