Perhaps a different type of tire question

8 posts in this topic

I have a dual sported BRP and will need to change the rear tire soon. The current Dunlop feels pretty squirrelly when cornering on the streets. I want to stay with an aggresive tire as possible. Are there any that are better than others when cornering like this?

The Terraflex isn't too bad on cornering- just needs about 10-30 miles to 'break-in'.

The terraflex is mean and grips but it will rub the exhaust , swingarm, mudguard etc. and eventually cost you money. If you want good grip, wear, and street manners I'd suggest the Maxxis Maxxcross IT. Go for the 120x100x18 if you want a better tread path. I got 500 miles out of one and no other tire has come close that bites as good.

Yiles! I'd be changing tires twice a month at 500 miles per. :)

What do you run? Aside from dualsport use, I'm thrilled with 500 miles of wear... usually go through a tire a weekend when on that bike. :)

I agree neduro. People post their chain, sprocket, and tire wear on here and I think Hondas got something against me. However, I toss the tire once it's 50% gone anyhow. I feel on this bike, their useless unless the knobs are 50% of greater due to wheelspin. Have you tried the Maxxis? I was a diehard Dunflop fan until I did. The IT hucks rocks!

I see, it's a hijack.

I run a Kenda k270. I got about 4000 on the last rear. Not bad in the dirt. Not great on the street. You know, Dual sport.
