Tire Recommendations

My 86 XR600 is finally due for its first rear tire change. The rubber is so hard the knobbies are starting to crack off. I have no idea how it lasted this long - must be the sand in Michigan. What are your favorite tires for riding in sandy soil? What's the best or worst tread pattern for sand?


My all around favorite is a Dunlop D756. They don't last too long in the rocks of SoCal. If you only ride sand a more aggressive soft terrain tire would be a better choice.

I'll look into a soft terrain tire.

If you want cheap, get Cheng Shin
