IRC TR 1, anybody try one?

I am looking for a a trial tire to put on my exc 450. The regular trials tires burn off to fast on even short connection roads at dual sport events. Can anybody help?

That's interesting - it looks exactly like the TR11 Trial Winner,which is the trials tyre to have these days - it's so soft it needs a cardboard former to ship....without it flops on the floor like a wet sock.But the TR1 is a more dual purpose tyre,maybe like the Mitas ET01.So that gives me two tyres to choose from - I want to go 4.00x18 front and rear.

My thoughts exactly. I just went ahead and ordered one. I will add a heavy duty moose tube to go along with it. I will let you know how it goes.

I know this is a little late on the response.

I finally got to try out the TR11 on the yz450f, on the rocks here at Rabbit Valley rim trail (western Colorado). With the Rekluse auto clutch and trials tire combo, It was never this easy.

I played with it in the sand hill climb and no surprises.

I still had the desert knobby on the front and could actually feel it slip on the rocks, Not the rear.

We ripped up a set of knobbies on the 5 Miles of Hell trail a year ago in Utah.

I ordered a set of TR1's front and rear and I am trying to get my kids to run the 5 MOH trail with me again.

I will be swapping these tires/rims between my wr426f and my yz450f as needed.

I ran about 12 psi because of the weight of the bike and my weight. I also because of the clutch I am able to crawl up the rocks and not rip out the knobs.

Now to find a 19 in rear trials tire.

Sorry to dig up an old thread but...

Saber, how did these tires work out long term? The price seems great.

TR 011R IRC trials tires

As a trials guy I can tell you that even the tire sellers are confused by these tires so know what you are ordering. You want the TR011R Trials winner front and rear radial tire not the TR1 which is a cheap bias tire used on early scrambler type bikes. The radial aspect is what makes them grip rocks. If you air them up over 6 lbs you are missing the point. Also they are not cheap...actually cost more than most HT knobbies. To put a lot of air in these because your bike is heavy defeats a lot of their footprint advantage. These tires are made for trials not trail riding. Especially if you overinflate them they will have a short lifespan. They willl be squirrely on blacktop, willl not meet DOT regs and will have unusual characteristics such as walking and weird braking. If you only ride in rocks on a light trials bike they work great though.

Pirelli MT-43 for the enduro bikes. DOT legal also.
Save the radial trials tires for the trials bikes.
The MT-43 lasts much longer for trail / asphalt runs.
I use it on my TE-510 - 300exc - WR-250, very happy with the overall performance. Michlin/Dunlop for the 4-RT.

IRC TR1 3:00 21 tire

Reviving a very very old thread:
Just put the IRC TR1 3:00 21 on the front of my WR250R replacing the factory TrailWing.

I have the Tubliss system front and back and have the MT-43 on the rear.

The TrailWing wanted to slde out on me on loose gravel downhill turns. The TR1 sticks like glue.

IRCTR1
