I bought these to replace the stock IRC tires on my new CRF250L. I am not disappointed! I recently rode over a mountain road that snowmobiles use in the winter, there was still slushy packed snow on some of the road, these tires performed great!! I wouldn't have made it with the stockies. They are smooth on pavement, the front is a little twitchy, but other than that they work well on blacktop too. I would definitely recommend these tires. Especially for the price our friends at Motosport.com are selling them at! Ride On!
