Try Pirelli Rally tires. Cheap. The Pirelli Rally front seems to hold up on my 950 really well. I just ran the Rally rear on the Colorado BDR, and I had no problems with it. The tread of the rear is laid out in a way that it really bits in soft stuff very well. But we warned -- that rear is LOUD on pavement.

It's more about techniques. But you need aggressive front tires. I've used 606 and MT 21.

For the rear, k60, TKC, don't matter much.

AGREE, They are quite good off road and not super scary on the tarmac. just noisy.

+1 I like the Pirelli Rally

The D908 rear likes to do the side to side shuffle in the sand, this one doesn't.

Are you guys talkin about the Pirelli Scorpion Rally?

http://www.pirelli.com/tyre/ww/en/mo...ion_rally.html

In my country this is the most expensive offroad tire.. Even the MT90 and the Desert Race costs less, but those are expensive as well..

Someone here wrote they're cheap.. I don't get it.

Yep, a little over $100 here. Half the cost of a D908RR...although these used to cost $100 too.

Its a 140 dirt tire, not a low profile street carcass so I run it on my SE rear rim.

For sand, the rear tire doesn't matter much. I'd ditto the TKC80 front and MEFO rear. Both wear at the same rate, about 6-8k miles. But, you must pump them up to max on the street or you'll get bad cupping.

The TKC80 works on the street about as good as the stock scorp. The MEFO is noisy on the street and I"m scared to push it much. I like the feel of these two bias tires off road though. The rear scorp radial feels weird off-road when aired down.
