Better rear tire..Maxxis IT or Dunlop 952 ?

Recommended Posts

Which is better for trails? Hard packed, a lot of stones both small and large. There is light mud when it rains but definately nothing too deep. Also, no deep sand.

Just slapped on a set of maxxis It. Had them for about two weeks now. I also ride lots of nasty rock gardens. Awesome tires!!!

I have tried both tires, and while the Maxxis is an excellent tire I prefer the 952. The 952 works decently as a all-round tire, is much easier to mount, and is much lighter in weight.

I've run both and its really a toss up. Both tires are very similar when new, the Maxxis lasts longer but is quite a bit heavier and not fun to mount. If you dont mind the extra unsprung weight of the Maxxis then I would go that route. The 952 is a good desert tire, is much easier to mount, its definately lighter and lasts quite a while, just not as long as the Maxxis.
