    Interested to hear the reviews. Looks to have quite the tread depth, possibly to improve mileage?

    I called them today about availability, if they are available, and they aren't overly expensive, I'll put them on my 850gsa

    Maybe less noise? That’d be a bonus!

    The claim to be 50:50 is a bit odd.

    I read that XLADV was calling them a 60/40. I guess you have to go with the manufacturer, but interesting that we already have 2 different classifications.

    I've always favoured Dunlops and look forward to trying these next time I'm buying tires.
    My hope is that they also provide good wet traction on pavement

    Dunlop said 8,000 miles out of these tires but the test case was, "Test conducted by independent contracted riders on a 250-mile mountain loop. Tire sizes 110/80B19 front and 150/70B17 rear, on 2017 Suzuki V-Strom."

    Mountain Loop suggests on and off road and a V-Strom is a lot lighter than a GSA. Looks like phase 1 will support the GS which is great news for you all but no matter since I'm putting my bike away for the winter soon.

    Front $155 - https://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/tires-and-wheels/dunlop-trailmax-mission-front-motorcycle-tire-p
    Rear $202 - https://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/tires-and-wheels/dunlop-trailmax-mission-rear-motorcycle-tire-p


    RMATV says 10/18 for expected arrival date.

    Honestly, I was going to just order another set of Anakee Adventure tires for next year's riding but these may fit the bill for me and worth giving it a go. There were plenty of off-road days on the GSA where I would have liked more traction. My biggest concern for these is the inevitable cupping that will set in after about 4K miles. I'm at 7K miles on my Anakee Adventures and think I have at least 2-3K more miles to go.

    I am very interested in these tires. I love the Karoo 3s, but man they burn up quick. Ridiculously quick…. Any idea if the carcass is as thick as the common 50/50 tire?

    Well, I just pre-ordered a set. I love the Metzeler Karoo 3s but man they wear out quick. I’m getting about 1,500 miles out of the rear.
    I have high expectation of excellent on and off road traction that last longer. I know I should expect low mileage on a 50/50 but 1,500 miles is kinda ridiculous…

    Where are you located? Where’d you order them?

    I followed Adam Chandler’s link to rockymountainatvmc.com and pre-ordered them. I’m in the Bay Area of Ca. Looks like they’ll be available on the 18th.

    Everyone's looking for the Holy Grail. These look like 70:30 tires... and really that means they're meant for mostly on-road with some hard-pack dirt roads. They aren't going to do well in mud on a GS, they're not going to do well in sand or deep gravel. Better than PR4s on gravel? Yeah. Not as good on the road, and about the same in mud.

    I think the setup is to have two sets of wheels, one with Anakee Wilds or TKC 80s, the other with PR4s.

    These tires look great, but looks are deceiving. And I'll bet @AdamChandler is spot-on about that front tire cupping.
    I've recently come to the conclusion that there is no real tire with the varying degree of fractional use-type capabilities that are being marketed as such. They're either on-road or off-road. Sure, you can use one for it's unintended purpose, but the shortcomings are immediately apparent.
