Ive tried lots of different tires front and rear. I didnt use this front tire long. It had good traction but its only tire ive tried that consistently made bike want to knife under when cornering hard. Some may like a aggressive tire like this but im much happier with the Artrax mx pro. It hooks just as hard in loose dirt but no odd handling when leaned over on the track. The Artrax tires are a great bargain , Ive never had a knob chunk off and they are inexpensive. The rears run narrow so get a 120 width for a 450 as they compare to other manufactures 110 width rear tires. Oh the rear tg4 is my favorite rear Artrax tire. Works great in soft to medium dirt. If you normally run hard pack there are better tires but in loose dirt the TG4 rear rocks !
