okay i ride very aggressive here in Virgina where you will find just about everything in the terrain department I ran a maxxis IT rear and a dunlop mx51 front. total mileage 4500 miles. i should've changed them out but i decided why not make my tires supermotoish on the street lol i would run these non DOTs with HD tubes at up to 80 mph never got a flat the IT wore like iron on pavement any did great in dry dirt and hard rocks. you could run this thing flat for a while if in a emergency situation ( its a thick tough tire) cons- its a bitch to change, its not the happiest in mud and god forbid river crossings on large flat wet rocks ( it just wouldnt grip and would slid out all the time) just a lack of grip especially on slippery hill climbs where my old ac 10 michelin would have zero problems. the MX51 dunlop i cant really say i much about im neutral on it. i always have a hard time reviewing front tires as i can really judge it.. i guess it cornered well for an mx tire IS THERE A better rear tire i could look at that has the same longeivity as the IT and would stick better in the grip department?
