    G'day,
    Does anyone have any real-world opinions on the new Mitas TerraForce -R tyres? I'm considering trying some on an S10 for a mostly bitumen road-trip from Cairns to the Snowy Mountains in NSW ( about 6000km round trip.
    Cheers

    As usual not sized for the Enduro bikes

    Smooth throttles and fantastic fun wheelies!

    An update for those interested, I have just changed the rear tyre after 16 400km (10 180 miles), and have to say I've been pretty impressed by the way they have worn and how they have handled. Around 90-95% was on tar roads of longer stretches and also commuting. The dirt tracks held up well(nothing technical), just dropped the speed. The pics below show the results, the front still has some life left in it so not pictured here.

    Thanks for the update. I only have 4-5k miles on mine but like the feel and handling on road. I'll be very pleased if I get to 10k.

    Got some of the Terra Force-R and looking to build on current feed back.
    Really looks like a good 90/10 tire with nice profile for pavement, but wondering about its hard pack or gravel road ability?
    Will be working on gathering as much info as I can over the following months, with hopes we can give the Terra Force-R a fair review.
    Bringing Mitas/Sava tires into North America took time to get the E-07, E-09, and off road series moving, but have to say they sell themselves now.
    Terra Force-R 110/80R-19, 130/80-17, 150/70R-17...... hope to see the 90/90-21 TL in the new year.

    My most recent list showing all Mitas/Sava tires available, and tires in development does not show a Terra Force 18".
    However I will be attending the EICMA show in Milan this year and will ask the question and put forward the request.

    Any word on additional sizes? I see several retailers advertising them in KTM 1190 sizes but always out of stock.
