Running a 120/80/19 for trails? What is your favorite trails tire?

I do quite a bit of trail riding and I am looking for something new for the back tire. I was looking at the M404 and was wondering what differences Ill see with a 110/90/19 vs a 120/80/19 (will that even fit on my bike? 03 250)

 

Ive read that the tire hooks up great and lasts for a decent amount of time. 

 

What do you prefer for trail riding? 

 

 

I run the maxxis desert IT.

It is super durable and takes on rocks and really rough terrain like a champ. I will say, if conditions are really dry it will want to break loose but for theArizona desert rocky single track that I do, it's perfect.

if its the stock rim which I think is 19x1.85? It'll be a pain to get a 120 on there If it'll even fit. I had a 120 on my 05 cr250 but it had a 19x2.5 rim on it from the previous owner so the tire fit perfect. And IMO I hated the 120 for woods they are terrible for turning.i bought all new rims and tires and went for the stock rim and 110 on back. Now if your straight line grass dragging its perfect hahah.

I am moving to AZ, where are you located?

 

 

I don't even know if the 120 will fit on there but I just want something that really grabs. My buddy has an 02 CR250 with a 120/x/18 and let me tell ya he can climb up a lot of stuff. 

A 120 will fit. I ride single track/woods and also had a 404 that held up good and worked good also. My suspension was out of whack so its hard for me to give a great honest review on it. 2005cr250r, a 19x2.15 is the stock rim size on a 250 2 stroke/450. The 1.85 is for a 125/250 4 stroke.

Your 404 was a 120?

That would be sweet!

 

Hopefully I can get my 03 dialed in with this S7 nozzle I've got on the way... That, and I am looking into a new rear tire. Currently the shop has my clutch case cover and brand new Hinson basket that they said they peened the bolts in. They were all backing out when I pulled it off on Monday and 1 had already had the head sheered off and punched a hole in the cover. Hopefully they will take care of me and I will get a new basket out of this.

An M404 in 110/100/18 is my tire of choice , it seems to let you lay the bike over quicker and I dont notice less traction than a 120.

I have an AT81 in 110/100/18 on right now (all they had was an at81) and it has held up very well and hooks up well too.

I moving to the PHX area, but Im not sure where. Preferably Mesa, Chandler,Tempe area. I need a place that has a 2 car garage and rent is 1200 a month or less. I need to find something this week but... I have yet to find anything.  :( 

That should be no problem. I used a company called opulent real estate. They were easy to work with and found me a 2bed 2bath 2car garage in nice chandler area for 950

AZ rider do you race in the Amra series?...blaze there's a pretty fun offroad series that races all over northern and mid AZ that's pretty fun you might be interested in

No, I really don't race much any more. Mostly just go out on the single track stuff in our area and up north.

We should try to get together and ride some time single track is my favorite riding

For sure, let me know if you come up to Phoenix. There is some really good stuff up around Bartlett lake.

Can you camp at Bartlett lake? And are you free either the weekend before out the weekend after Christmas?

I came down this week and looked for a place and hopefully I'll have something lined up. I have the week of thanksgiving off.
