E-09 and E-07

Right now I have an E-07 on and it has lasted pretty well for how it is being tortured on and off road. But as with every dual purpose tire I have found that it is not what I would like off road, compared to specific hard enduro tires like E-09.
I used the E-09 last season and it wore very well for 50/50 riding and I believe it lasted much longer that my friends KAROO-T.
Front mitas E-07 I used once but found that off-road it is as useless as a scorpion so after the first one I used Mitas E-09 which is much better and held up for long enough. Now though I prefer Sava MC-23, which I paid 50$ for and it already has been 3500km going and barely showing ware (tarmac stability after 160kph is limited).
I also tried the Heidenau K-60 on the rear, but I think it is as good as E-07 only 30$-40$ more expensive here in Latvia.

Hope that helped a little.
