Atom Bomb says:

you should have mentioned more tires. Ive ran the maxxis, its a great tire.The Dunlop’s are ok to. Ive never liked anything Michelin they suck all around. 2 years ago i switched to GoldenTyre though and i wouldn’t go back for anything. They are insanely good.

2StrokeBloke says:

Now THIS is what a review should be. Quality specs AND experience based input about quality, traction, etc. Great work F9. I’ll be going with the Maxxis.

driftke70 says:

wasnt expecting much from this review but its so refreshing to listen to someone talk at a decent pace and not treat people like an idiot.

Brian Hunt says:

either the official maxxis commercial was totally wrong about there own products but you said the IT rear tires last the longest but the maxxis commercial on youtube says that that is a soft rubber and the SI rear tire is made of hard rubber which should last longer did you miss spoke?

Adam Batchelder says:

No trils tires

Jose Delgado says:

Great info… thanks a lot … I will definitely go for the Maxxis for the fisrt time. Please keep us posted.

i have a rfz 125cc with 17″ front rim with 70/100×17 tire and 14″ back rim with 90/100×14 tire. I want to convert it to a supermoto but have no idea how to go about choosing the right rims/tires. Can you help me?

The Okanagan.. born and raised! Great vid!

I literally went through a MX52 in a weekend…Switching to a Maxxis desert cross IT tire. We’ll see how that goes.

Bruno Soares says:

What are your thoughts on the Continental TKC80 Twin Duro? I usually ride on asphalt but I love that scrambler tire look.

XSADV says:

Love me some paddle tire! The dunes in Florence, OR are phenomenal for that type of riding! So much fun!

Brett Young says:

Can I put that paddle tire on my cbr100rr? I think it would be a good track tire

Kryptastisch says:

Do you know the maxxis maxx enduro tire, its not so easy to get one but i really like them.

Aftermarket Al says:

Thank’s for mentioning a good tire for the okanogan valley that’s where I am

TR 50-112 says:

Great review but I’d have to differ with you on the S12xc being more versatile than Starcross 5 med rear. Try one… you’ll see. Keep up the great vids!

IRC M5B blows all those tires out of the water!

Andrew James says:

“dirt bike tire review” Love your review, very professional.
Here’s an idea for another review in the future, “Coastal wet/ rocky conditions” look into Kenda?IBEX ; Shinko 505 Cheater, Kenda Equilibrium, GoldenTire 216X; Gibson tire Tech 7.1, Mitas XT754 Green stripe. Again, great job

I have tried so many tires over the years and now all I run is the Kenda Equilibrium. Such an amazing off-road tire.
