Maxxis Goldspeed / Avon Distanzia -street?

Recommended Posts

I am looking for the best traction in the dirt.

I am currently running MT60 front and dragon rear, and in the grass traction is completely non-existent. I mean it is like riding on ice. Same riding with knobbies and the traction feels incredible.

That rear tire has to go, but I do not wish to replace it with something that will not help in the trails.

FWIW -overall traction in dirt is no so much of an issue. It is just off trail that it gets scary, and I was wondering if either of the above would work? I believe both will work fine for canyons and occasional track outtings.

Thanks,

Mike

I have the gold speed and they work great on pavement. I have problems

riding in loose dirt and sand, the front can slide out, when turning. I think more because of the smaller front 17" tire as compared to the 21" that came on the bike, DRZ400. The harder the dirt the better they hook up.
