Rear Tire

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a new rear tire for my 87 XL600r. Bike mainly runs on road with about 20 percent offroad. My big problem is i want i wicked looking/performing offroad tire.

I also want a tire that will last me 1 season wear wise (1500kms) I want it too hook big time off road. I also don't want it to wear down to half tread in 500 km's of hard tarmac driving.

I will sacrafice hard top performance for when i realy need it in the dirt, as thats the only reason i ride a xl vs a real street bike.

Any options will be considered. Tire must be street legal. Thanks.

I ran the IRC 5.10x17 inch rear on my XR500. It was the best tire available. However, I don't think it is street legal. Take a look at the Kenda Trackmaster II in 130/90x17. It is street legal and is an aggressive tire.
