    I'm looking for a replacement set of tires for an F800 GS. It came with a Michelin Anakee (has been great so far).

    Pirellis are a bit cheaper (my brother's Adventure came with MT90s) and wanted to hear your opinions.

    I need a 90/10 maybe 80/20 on/off road tire

    In my words, stick to Anakee set if you are riding %80-90 on road. Conti Escape is another choice which I 'm really into these days.

    I have put the MT90 a/t on the front & the s/t on the back - only because you can't get the a/t for a 17" rear

    so far so good - had battlewings on before & "definately feels better" on the dirt roads
