Yo. Wondering what tires can be recommended for racing in superstition I’m taking my time finding the right ones. Must be DOT approved. Race is over 100 miles. For my Ktm 450 exc 03 with lectron carb. Thank you for your time.
I have been on the hunt for the best all around rear tire for my L. I want a tire to last a decent amount of time yet be amazing off road. This thread is more or less for myself to keep track of what I've tried and the results, hopefully someone else can benefit as well. I got the L last summer so have not had a ton of time to try tires but here is what I've done so far. 1. Stock tires - actually a pretty decent 50/50 tire. I need a much more dirt oriented tire so it wasn't working for me but I was surprised at how decent it was for a good all around 50/50. 2. Kenda K270 - amazing 50/50 tire. I tried the front and the rear. The front blows off road but the rear is quite good for what it is. These things wear like iron too. I only had them on for three rides but there is essentially zero wear and that is on hard terrain that shreds tires after just a few outings. 3. Scorpion XCMH - WOW! I tossed a pair of these on and headed out to the woods, I felt like I was glued to the ground. The traction and performance was exceptional. Problem was though that by the third time out for a ride they were toast. I only got about 1 3/4 rides out of them before they has significant wear. Half way through the third ride the rear was done. The pair cost me $260 and I didn't even get two full rides out of them before the wear significantly effected the performance. The front tire was great and had a decent lifespan. 4. Shinko 505 Cheater - I really, really like this tire. I ride in the mountains and there is a ton of rock and this sucker sticks to everything and gives amazing traction. It is currently on my bike and after two hard 6 hour plus rides it has held up alright, worn away about 30%. I think I'll likely get another two, maybe three rides out of it before she's pooched. ***************** Just got these in the mail today, will edit and post thoughts on them down the road. ***************** 5.
