DRZ400 tyre question
« on: February 03, 2010, 10:00:17 am »
Ok, I don't own a DR400 but I do own an XR400 and want to know what tyres you guys are using (both front and rear) that will give decent mileage for combined road and off-road use.  The dedicated MX type tyres virtually just disappear when used on the tar and are providing a lot of entertainment on the road with all the rain we're having here in Jhb, are there any decent DS tyres available in the following sizes 80/100/21 (front) and 110/100/18 (rear)?

Maxxis M6006, Dunlop 606, TKC..

Plenty on this - do a search.

Those are the standard sizes for the Enduro model. Most people run a 90 at the front and 130 at the back. I'm running a D606 on the front and a T63 at the back, awesome combination of tyres for offroad and some tar.

Ah, now we're getting somewhere, thanks Newguy, more of a tyre size question then.
