Fat Or Thin

I'M DUE FOR A NEW REAR TYRE AND THE STOCK ONE ON MY WR450 IS LIKE A 5 YEAR OLD KID WHO EATS MACCA'S LIKE A TRASHING MACHINE, ANYWAY WHAT HANDLES BETTER (TRAIL RIDING) A FAT OR THIN TYRE :cry:

Narrower tire turns and handles better but you dont get as much traction when conditions are poor. In perfect traction conditions I would go with a 110 rear. If you ride in sloppy stuff I would go with a 120. :cry:

Hey Indy my last tire was a IRC m5b Witch I like it really hooks up but I ware it out in 5 rides I ride mostly Middle cr. and Cow a cross from soft to hard terr. any suggestions on what tire I should get next maby somthing that hooks up good but wont ware out so fast.

Go with the MaxxCross It from Maxxis. It is far and awayt he most lasting rear tire I have ever used. The trade off for good traction is totally accepable as well.

I like the 120 rear with the new brigestone 90/100-21 front. Great traction and reasonable wear.

I would say that the best value for the western riders is the maxxis IT. That is all I here from the riders out west. I know some fast guys that swear by them. They dont work for us eastern riders and that is why Maxxis has the new SI model for us eastern riders. :cry:

THANKS FOR YOUR IMPUT, I'VE READ MAXXIS WERE GOOD SO I THINK I WILL GO WITH THEM :cry:
