you want a closed tread pattern for lots of roadwork. don't expect any grip down those green lanes though. someone's selling a pair of YZ wheels in the back of TBM for £300 this month.

you can do hundreds of miles on a front MX but you'll shoot the back in under 300 miles. so i'd consider buying a rear wheel only. you can also put a smaller rear sprocket on your road wheel which will gear it up for the open road's.
