I only have a few day rides on this tire so I cant really comment on durability or long term performance. BUT I replaced my trusty worn out MX52 with this. Its half the price and hooks up awesome in late winter, early spring Missouri muck trails. I purchased the same size as the old Dunlop but the Artrax is 1/2" narrower so watch on sizing. I also got the front TG4 and it works good. Not as impressive as the rear. Now to pray for longevity to make a smoking good deal.

The TG4 tire is a Sand/Soft Mud Tire! I bought it under the impression it it would be for all soft or intermediate terrain. No it's just for pure Sand/Soft Mud.. It currently has one ride on it from the Prairie City GP @ Prairie City OHV in Folsom. Edges are rounded and I only did 2 laps till I got a rear flat. The price was awesome, but like I said above this is not a Soft/Intermediate Tire...
Tore held up good very thick side walls nice tread pattern
Rear: Man does it ever work. Racing hare scrambles. With the power of a YZF426 to clean it, it throws mud treetop high and pushes like nothing I've ever seen! If you've got a powerful bike and can spin the rear clean, this *IS* the tire you want! Nof for lower powered play bikes. For TTRs and lower powered offroad play bikes, this is not your tire. I'd almost recommend putting it on backwards to attempt to make it self cleaning but haven't done that yet. TG4 on the rear has superior forward push in mucky and sloppy conditions but only fair in cornering. The stopping power is excellent too, in mucky conditions because the tread shape makes is self cleaning.
Seriously, you need to try one! I'll never get anything else for this YZF426. The reason I'm doing a review is that the one on there is worn and we're putting another one on ASAP. I'm here to order another rear one.
Front: Its good. Don't know that is any better than any other tire but it works very well. If your front is worn and ready to replace, might as well use one of these. Its good. The rear, though, is BAD! (...in a good way.)
Nice tire, great traction, rode about 100 miles on it, mostly on rocky and intermediate dirt trails, shows very minimal wear, so far, so good! Pretty tough to mount, strong sidewalls.
Works great for sand and mud. Have not had any Installation issues as others have, this is the 4th tg4 on the bike with no problems.
Tire hooked up, covering mud, rocks and ruts.
Hooks up great and lasts longer than any Brigstone or Dunlop.
Works well in soft stuff wears long.
I live in North Florida. I ride mostly motocross. Most tracks around here are a mix of clay and sand. This tire is awesome!!! It hooks up awesome!! I put the tires on myself, very easy with 3 spoons. You can't beat the price, just under $100 for a front and rear tire!! I'm sold!
I have ran this tire on a few different bikes of my own (05 yz250f, 08 RMZ 450, and 08 KTM 250XC) and some of my riding buddies have tried it. Here'w what I think ... In soft terrain it's a great tire hooks up like a soft terrain tire should cleans out easily. Now that being said if you run the tire on any kind of hard pack and you ride aggressively it is going to show wear very quickly. Some of the more expensive tires cross over between hard and soft terrain better but for the money I can't complain. Thanks Motosport for offering an affordable product that provides adequate performance for us weekend warriors!!
Ordered this Artrax TG4 rear with a Artrax MX-Pro Front .
Took one Ride out in the desert with them so far and They feel great .
The only complaint I have is that they wont last .
First and only Ride so far and chunks of rubber are missing from the knobs in the rear .
The front looks great except that there's a 1 inch rip in the tire .looks like a factory defect .
I have these tires installed on a 2015 rmz450 .
Next time I'll just spend the extra cash and get a tire that will last .
For being an inexpensive tire, this thing is amazing. It may not last as long as some of the more expensive Bridgestone or Dunlop tires but it definitely has the same traction... In the woods at least. Would I recommend this tire for blasting around a track or doing any serious racing? No. However, if you just like to ride around with your friends, blasting through the wood and you don't have a lot of money to spend then this is your tire. It hooks especially well in soft, loose dirt or in sand or mud. The tread pattern on this thing looks almost like a paddle tire. My only complaints about this tire would be the rather difficult installation and how fast the leading edge wore down. The sidewall on this tire was so stiff that I broke two of my tire irons and bent one of them. I ended up having my local motorsports shop mount it for around 15$. This may not be an issue with other tire sizes (mine is 100/100-18) or maybe it was just the one I bought. Anyway, don't let this stop you from buying this tire. I will definitely be buying more of these for my other bikes.
So far I've ridden it in a muddy field. And it hooked incredibly well. Great bang for the buck. And it is a bear to get on though. Prett sttiff tire
I was hesitant to buy a tire that is not a name brand due to the horror stories we have all heard. That is NOT the case with this tire... It was a little stiff when mounting it, but other than that this tire could not be more perfect. I ride a RMZ450 on a mixture of motocross races, GNCC woods races, and trail riding in Wellsville Ohio. If you don't know what Wellsville is, look it up... It is a very rough place to ride and normally eats tires up... I'm on my 4th ride on this tire, and you barely can tell the tire has been used. And I'm not gentle to my bike either. If you're looking for an all around amazing tire, or just specific for only woods or motocross, I encourage you to check this tire out. I've always ran Michelin, Dunlop, Pirelli, etc. You cannot beat the price and from now on I will be running this tire... It also looks amazing on the bike as well. Happy riding...
went on just fine, use the right tire tools, worked great in soft or intermediate terrain, when track got dry traction went away.
These tires worked great and last JUST as long as the other big names and they save me a BUNDLE of money.
My usual track is Glen Helen Raceway
I ride a CRF450 in florida and the TG4 tires work great in the sand.
they are easy to install and last a long time. I ride hare scrambles with the Florida tral riders ran 10 races plus alot of practice before replacing the tire. Im now on my second one. Well worth the money.
The Artrax is a cost effective way to keep new rubber on your ride, the TG4 has been my choice for softer sandy type soils and muddy winter conditions with a bigger scoop like lug spacing that take a bite with out feeling weird when on the edge of the tire in a corner. It cleans out instead of balling up, and holds the sharpness of the lug corners for a long time. I will be buying another one soon.
this is my favorite tire by far the price is good, tire hooks in all terrain and for a soft tire it holds up very well
I have always ran Michelin S12 or Maxxis SI on my KTM 300xc in the past. Those get expensive when replacing every couple races. The Artrax has held up just as long as the Mich and Maxxis and provided similar traction results. I will continue buying these TG4 tires in the future and I recommend anyone to give them a shot.
