Yeah, you're welcome for the "reminder." Looking at your post count, I would say an MT-43 will last you a long time. http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...1#post22296954

I might have to try the MT43. I do remember back when all "Enduro" bikes came with trials tyres, they worked far better on road them knobbies, and almost as well off road.

They will again. Check out the tires on KTM's 2014 Freeride 250R, very short knobby/TT-like tires.

Downside for you to consider is rim damage at pressures where the MT-43 needs to be to work most effectively off road (due to its stiff DOT-rated sidewall).

This thread speaks to TT vs. knobby and how the pressure is key. OP in thread concluded that TuBliss system and knobby is maybe better way to go overall. I agree when I run TuBliss and M5B knobby and hit snow and deep mud, but the MT-43 will outlast knobby. Both are a bit squirrely on the street, but who cares when you are only connecting trails anyway (DS). http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=831867

I run a Dunlop on the back of my KTM 250. Best upgrade the bike ever had. Been in deep sand , slick mud, and it climbs rocks like a goat. I run ultra hd tubes and about 12psi vs the 4 psi in the GG 250.

It has been on the bike about a year. No issues

Just my 2 cents
