New tires

8 posts in this topic

Hello to all! It's been a while since I have been on.

We're finally going riding tomorrow...first time this year. Its been raining virtually all year here, or at least every weekend, so I am looking forward to getting out.

Anyway, to the point. I am thinking about trying Maxxis IT rear and ST front. Any comments?

Thanks in advance, rushfan :thumbsup:

Yup, it was about 2 weeks ago, lots of tire posts.

I'll be taking my WR out next week with a Desert IT on the back and regular IT on the front, here in Vegas. WIll post my thought afterwards.

I put a trials tire on the rear after reading many posts about how great they were. I have to concur. It sticks like velcro, its almost unbelievable. According to reports, they are good for at least 2000 miles. I tried it for myself. I simply cannot see going back to a knobbie for a while, especially since I normally ride in the so cal desert.

If you are looking for a new rear, definitely try the trials tire. There are lots of threads and debates on the Off-Road Riding Techniques forum.

or don't try it. But read up on it at least.

BTW, I ride an 05 wr450.

Search Button Dude!

I did briefly but, not a lot of time for that. I'm at work-can't, and I need to make a choice now so I can pick them up on the way home. So, that's why I'm asking you guy's for your quick and friendly comments...thanks anyway. :thumbsup:
