Holeshot Traction in the Mud!

Way Fast Whitey

Have you ever raced in the mud? Holeshots are a nightmare. But they don't have to be. During race prep of your bike wrap your tires in packing tape. At the starting line have your dad/mechanic/friend cut the tape a pull it off. you'll have perfectly clean tires and have the advantage out of the gate :thumbsup:

      So, Im looking for a good rear tire to put on my KDX200.  Ive thought about a hybrid tire but here in Ohio we have lots of mud and loose gravel.  I was wondering what tire would be best for loose gravel filled hillclimbs but also works good in slimy type mud. but also works decent in hardpack. Main concern is the loose gravel hillclimbs, been thinking about a soft terrain tire as well such as a Metzeler MC360 Mid-Soft tire which has good reviews. anyone from Ohio have any good suggestions? not looking for a DOT tire though either.

      Rad Manufacturing is now one of our premier manufacturers and we thing you will be impressed especially when purchasing something as important as wheels for your best friend the KTM 950/990 Adventure or 950 Super Enduro.
      We aren't talking about just any bike we are talking about the bike that will go to the end of the world with you if you ask that from it.
      We want to help you make the legs on your adventure the strongest and most farkled set of legs you can get. RAD will help us with that.
      From mild to wild they have it all. Start off with their Billet Cush Drive hub and grace that with heavy duty stainless steel spokes.
      If you are up to it and we think you are you may want to oversize those spokes and add a +1 to the gauge which will save you from the wobbles.
      Finish that off with either a strong CACR Rim or our favorite rim of choice Sun Rim.
      Now that we have racked your brain with all of these choices we have added anodizing and powder-coating options to personalize it even further.
      From stock sized 4.25x18 rims to track ready 5.00x17 you have everything you need to build that custom rear wheel.
