pretty much this thing eats tires for lunch. I've only put about 3k miles on mine so far (probably closer to 2500). The bike came with a semi worn 908, K60 and roached both of those pretty quickly (ok, I tossed the K60 after a few rides, not enough hook up off road). I also ran a MotoZ 140 that I have on it now. Here's what it looked like after about 200 miles of trails. Since then it's smoothed out a lot and doesn't seem like it's worn that much but I'm guessing I might get 800 miles out of it. Gotta pay to play right???



I've run a couple of off road only tires (MT16 and MT44) for strictly off road. I did run the MT16 on the pavement just to see what happened. pelted my riding buddy with chunks of rubber shortly after that experiment. The MT44 lasted better, but I was much more careful about the right grip. then i put ice studs in the tires and that was fun, but not enough snow/ice this year in the south. :) didn't figure I'd get ANY use for studded tires living in GA but you never know, right?



wait this is a photo thread not a tire thread!!
