Tire size/type for XR70

Recommended Posts

We'll be heading out to Jawbone Canyon this fall. What size tire and type/brand/model would you guys recommend for my son's XR-70. He's 8 years old and rides fairly well.

I know it's just a 70, but it's time for new tires anyway, so I might as well get some tires that will work in the desert, as well as trail riding in our neck of the woods.

Thanks in advance, Kersten

I'm running a D756 dunlop rear, and love it. I'm using a 12" front, so take my advice with a grain of salt for fronts, Kenda Southwicks just float over soft loam, no traction for turns. I don't remeber which Pirelli I swapped to, but it digs better, could still use more bite up front.
