I run this Maxxis desert-IT rear tire with a matching maxxis desert-IT front tire in the deserts of New Mexico .
Its a great combination if your looking for a good all around tire .
Having such a thick sidewall it allows me to run lower psi and get maximum traction . The Maxxis Desert-IT set last longer then any other set I've bought in the past .
it hooks up well . There different tires on the market that hook up better but don't last nearly as long .
One thing to keep in mind when installing these tires .
They are directional tires .
