Street tire on back, knobby front ?!!

Recommended Posts

I have a full set of Shinko 244s on my KLR now, not knowing what I'd get into this season. Now that I'm watching the gas prices go up, wondering if I can get away with a 80/20 street tire on the back and leave the 244 on the front.

Will this combo increase my milage a little? Will the handling suffer? So far I'm just commuting and the occasional day trip.

Comments and advice welcome. Serious, sarcastic and otherwise.

It will definitely increase your mileage and will save your off-road tires. Handling shouldn't suffer at all. In fact, you'll probably notice an improvement when riding pavement.
