I know dual sport tires are a compromise. What I'm hoping for here is that with some more knowledgeable people than myself we could compile a database comparing dualsport tires to each other in 4 categories: 1. Off road capability 2. On road capability 3. Longevity 4. Price I know those first 2 categories could be broken down more and the longevity category is pretty can vary greatly. I was thinking of just throwing some of the more popular tires out there, rating them on a scale of 1-10 and as we go we could "fine tune it". Lately I've been using Pirelli MT 21's. For me they are the high watermark for 50/50 on road off road. I personally would rate them 1. 8/10 off road 2. 6/10 on road 3. 4/10 longevity (I presently have 4,300 miles on mine which is a record. They are almost bald. They lost about 1/2 the tread in 600 miles but from there they start wearing a lot slower. Thus I know guys competing off road or where money is no issue they would replace them at 600 miles not 4,000) 4. 5/10 price I would love to have a resource where someone could look at the list, and be able to say, I want to be a little better on the road and I'll sacrifice $, longevity, or off road performance or whatever.
