They're K60's. I went for the 100 front (instead of the recommended 110 scout) and even though I can't compare it to the 110 scout from personal experience I was very happy with it off road. I did find the rear (150 scout) stepping out quite a bit on wet/damp roads regardless of if I was fully loaded with gear or solo. Off road with reduced pressures they were pretty good for a compromise tyre until you hit clay. I think I might try the 140 rear next time for better dirt performance.

I do have an annoying cyclic vibration in 5th gear between 75km/h and 90km/h since putting these tires on. That must just be a coordination of engine & tire vibrations just at that point.
