Hey guys, I know you're on here looking for a true, honest review, so here it is... the tire looks like a nice knobby when you get it! the nipples last a good 10 hours (which for me is roughly 10 rides.) I liked the performance, it done good in almost all conditions, even in the snow. straight line traction and braking is great! the side lugs are large; however, they don't get as much sideways traction as I'd like. while in a rut the traction was good, but coming out of a corner, the rear would break loose pretty bad. I've had the tire for about 9 months now, it has less than 1/4 tread left, but it has been though several amounts of hard abuse. if you have a question pertaining the tire, call your local off-road tire store, or Motosport, Dunlop will NOT call you back! Have a good day, happy trails, and remember... you meet nice people on a honda

Great rear tire

This is the second time I've purchased this tire and I am impressed again by how well it grips and it's durability.

What a tire...

I'm not going to lie, this tire is a little difficult to install with the reinforced construction, but that little bit of difficulty will pay off with fantastic grip in all conditions and excellent durability. My first ride on this tire was in deep dark loamy soil and it tracked well and was predictable. The next was in super soft sugar sand and it gave me grip when I thought I wouldn't have it. The last was a mix of those two soils as well as some rocky blue groove and again it gave me great traction. The best part about all that is I haven't had to flip it yet because the lugs haven't rounded off yet. This tire is fantastic and I highly recommend it to anyone.

Dunlop Geomax AT81 Desert RC Rear Tire

Excellent side wall strength which greatly increases pinch flat resistance and allows for running lower tire pressures which improves performance.
Linear traction is very good in all conditions but turning feels sketchy and it will break loose easily.
Wear is average but does not chunk. Average traction will be the same throughout the life of the tire.

AT 81 Hot Setup for Hare Scrambles

Here is the deal with these new off road race tires from Dunlop. You have to run them with lower than normal tire pressure due to the reinforced construction (RC). Best setup is 7 psi rear, 8.5 psi front. At that pressure they work very well through rocky terrain without flats.

A: The Dunlop Geomax AT81 Desert RC Rear Tire is a replacement for the 956 series of tires and is a great all around tire that provides excellent wear characteristics. It works well in all terrains, but does better in harder terrain like offroad riding.

Q: With this tire being so stiff, could I run 9 psi with a heavy duty tube?
1 year 11 months ago
I have a 2012 crf250r with this rear tire and have an ultra heavy duty tube in it. I was wondering if I can run less than 10 psi in it? The tube is 3mm thick, so would I be fine running 8 or 9 psi, or is that too low?

A: Generally Intermediate to hard pack you would want to run 11-13 psi in the rear tire. For hard wall tires running in soft conditions some people do go as low as 8-9 psi.
