Maxxix Dualmaxx tires. Anyone tried them?

Just curious if any dual sported WR pilots have experimented with these tires. I keep hearing good things about Maxxis tires, yet I haven't heard much on these babies. I'm always looking for better tires. (right Indy.) :naughty:

I use the Maxxis IT tires on the street and they wear like iron.

Good thing to they were the worst tires I ever changed.

I am a big fan of the Tera-Flex dual sport rear tire. But I dont recommend it for Northern Wisconsin and Upper Michigan riding. The trails up there have good traction and very few nasty rock and root sections like they have down South. I would stick with the Michelin Baja rear tire for that sandy soil type riding and use a Pirelli MT18 front! :naughty:

My Maxxis Dualmaxx's wore out very quickly... Pirelli MT 21's are way better for dual sporting. Their MT 18 really is great for the front and also very durable.

I have tried the Pirelli MT21s already when I had my 426. I thought they were good tires, but the pavement wore them fast. The tires were shot after about a 1,000 miles. (I should clarify, shot for me, not necessarily useless, just too dull for my liking)

I've been very happy with the Baja rear tire. I have over 800 miles on it, (a lot of pavement riding) and the knobs are just now starting to dull slightly. They are a good dual sport tire, just a little wobbly at highway speeds. I'm just always looking for better, trial and error with much less error. :naughty:

P.S. I have a set of Metzeler Enduro 3 Sahara tires with about 600 miles on them. I would sell the set for $50. They are great street tires, but loose off road. Pm me if anyone wants em.

When I ran the Baja rear it helps to run 30 psi for long high speed road trips. Increased stability! :naughty:
