TeraFlex. It's HUGE. HUGE! I have a 150/90-18 waiting for install on my P.I.G.

click here for a pic

Pros:

-HUGE lugs don't chunk or tear

-DOT if you care

-Runs at 6-8psi... may as well be flat

-Runs flat (see above)

-Cheap ($60-$70)

Cons:

-Tough to find (mail order)

-Heavy (the US-made ones are steel belted)

-Tough to put on yourself

-May rub the plastic chain guard thing (a lot)

For a front, go with a Michelin M12. Lasts a long time, grippy, doesn't chunk, runs flat well.

I really like Dunlop 756's. It's a soft-intermediate design. They do pretty good in the mud and the rocks. The downside is short life. I'm trying a Maxxis Desert IT now. It sure lasts a lot longer, but at the price of somewhat reduced traction. I liked it when it was new, but worn it's not even close to a worn 756.

lol that might be to big.I cant have it rub.

My 600's swingarm is identical to your 600's... It'll fit. Also, once something is worn through/out, it doesn't rub anymore.

I'm going to take my chain guard thingy off when mine is installed.

The thing is HUGE. It looks like a balloon... or a TW200 tire.

Holly crap........150 steel belted:confused:

You need to show us pics of this monster on your bike.

Anyway the tire I found that works best for me is the Maxis Desert....110 or 120. I am using a 110 right now and its about perfect (100% desert riding)
