08 yz450f Good tire?

9 posts in this topic

I mostly ride in my field which is grass and in the woods on trails etc. What would be a really good set of tires (front & rear)?

I reaLLY like the dunlop 756 tires, they do wear out faster than a 952 but they hook up great for me. I feel like I have superpowers with the 756 as opposed to the 952. However the 952 lasts alot longer, especially when you hit the pavement. They ar both good tires, I guess it depends if you want optimum traction or longer where. I would recommend going with you stock tire size.

Ok thanks, Yeah they do get good traction on grass and all i was just wondering if there was a tire that was way better for the kind of riding i do.

For the rear check out the Kenda Washougal Sticky...holds up very good and hooks up in a wide variety terrain. I have been a Dunlop guy for awhile, but they wear down too quick for me.

Go with the Pirelli Scorpion Pro for the front, and the Pirelli MT-16 for the rear....especially if you ride trail, fields, hardpack medium, etc. etc.

I've run Dunlop 's, Maxxis , etc. and found this combo (the Pirelli's), to work the best on everything. It is the favorite combo of Dwight Rudder the National Enduro champ, so it's gotta be decent.

I just tried my first Pirelli Scorpion. I've been through most of the others and I knew was a little harder and the pattern looked intersting so I gave it a shot. The track I ride on the most gets hard pack before the end of the day so I figured I had nothing to lose. Wow. It really is a damn good front tire. It stuck good early when the track was loamy and it really stuck good when the track got hard. I noticed when coming in hot before a flat turn the back would try to slide out but the front always stuck well. I want to try the rear now.
