Maxxis 6006

Qman,

I think you're referring to my posting on the 6006. Yes, it does look good, and yes, it hooks up quite well (the 140/80 in the back is better than the 90/90 in the front, but both are much better than the OEM Sahara).

But, if your criteria is to "not wear out in 4,500 miles", I think you're barking up the wrong rubber tree. If these go 3,000 I think that would be reasonable, given their relative knobbiness.....

And thats why I have a set of 6006s in the garage, waiting for the last 3/16" of Sahara to go away.

A matter of 16ths

Creep,

My Saharas made 3,600 miles before they were down to an 1/8th " (2/16ths for those of you so inclined). They were still fine on the slab, but felt something akin to ice racing off road...So, on went the MaxxiPads....try 'em, you'll like 'em

I've got about 5/16" left total... a little less on the front. Another 500 miles (4000 total) ought to do it and it'll be 6006 time.
Funny thing, you said the front 6006 wasn't much of an improvement over the Sahara... did you notice that the new 6006 front has about the same tread depth as a Sahara with 3500 miles on it? This may turn out to be a two fronts to one rear deal unless the compounding is quite a bit different.
Just an obvservation.

Rims

Mr. Orange what about your rims, are u using the original ones or U change them to enduro size? Here we have a lot of desert racing and riding and have a couple of friend with 950's and 640's that broke their rims cause as they are wider than enduros when you fit the tire it stands more open on the sides and reduce it's height thus rocks became rim killers. If you like I' can send you the pictures of what I've done to mine but have no idea how to attach'em to this page.

6006 front slick

Krispy Kreep,

Yes, the 6006 front is not nearly as efficient as the rear, but it's still easily twice as grippy as the Sahara. Your observation on tread depth is well taken. Maybe MT21 front/6006 rear would be the way to go...
