Rear tire

Recommended Posts

Need some advice, does anyone have a suggestion for a rear tire? I ride a track here in So Cal that starts out really muddy in the morning then turns to hard pac in the afternoon with loose dirt in the corners. The hard pac wears the crap out of any tire that works on the morning. Thanks for the help.

Sounds like barona! I just got back from there. MX52s are popular.

I just bought a tire cutter...totally worth the $ if u use the siping kit and scoop the front edges.

Thanks for the suggestion I ride at Elsinore mostly. The dirt is similar to barona. Snot on top of concrete in the morning blue groove mid day on

Mx51 rear is my favorite so far.

My usual riding spots go from ultra hard pack with big ass rocks to sand to random clay based mud puddles. Then every once in a while I go ride some trails and end up in like swampy Peet crap. The mx51 has been great in all of it.

I always ran the mx51's but I recently put a 32 on there and so far I'm very happy with it! It definitely seems to be wearing a little more quickly than the 51 but I'll sacrifice a little wear for better traction.
