Have used regular for past five years. Never had trouble with any of them. Mostly trail riding in az and I'd. Great tire.
I have been using the Maxxis tires for years. It is a excellent tire for changing conditions. I ride cross country, occasional motocross, trails and the Hatfield and McCoy trails in West Virginia and this tire handles it all. I get the Desert model for the stiffer and thicker sidewalls to avoid flats. IMHO this is the best rear tire you can buy. Worth the money!
Gets the job done and is long lasting. It's a good desert tire with a pinch flat resistant stiff carcass. I run these at 12 psi with a Bridgestone UHD tube. Always a reliable and predictable choice but there are now other tires at this price point that can compete.
After replacing rear tires every 5 trip I decided to try this tire. So glad I did! I ride out in Johnson Valley in So Cal Desert primarily. Lots of rocks, on the trail as well as the hills. Mostly shale rock that seemed to eat up the other brands.
Spent 2 days out last week riding...out 6.9 hours on the tire with little to know wear! I'm not very easy on tires I will admit but so far so good here
I just recently put this tire on and rode some of the gnarliest rocky trails and the tire still looks brand new this is by far my favorite tire it has nice tall lugs of a soft mud tire but the hard compound of a hard terrain tire it's the best of both worlds, would highly reccomend this tire
Super smooth and grips amazing. Love this tire!!!
I got this tire in 120/90-19.. the bike is a 2013 yz250. This tire looks like a monster on the rear of the bike. First few rides on it have just been lugging around the woods and in the rocks. Tire hooks great for my rocky Arkansas terrain. Paired the tire with a heavy tube and running 5psi... works great for me!
The only tires that should be used in Baja!
Some of the best tires on the market for your money! !
just mounted it this weekend have not used it yet.
Works excellent in rocky terrain. Did not see much traction loss in softer terrain compared to Dunlop 756. Installation same as all other dirtbike tires I have changed.
Will buy again!
Installed on KX250, 2002 and KX250F, 2007
I use this tire in combination with the Tubliss system. I typically run about 8psi in the tire. I generally ride rocky, ledgy conditions with some loose soil. This tire works well in sand too. The only thing it does not work well in is deep slippery mud. I get about 75 hours of life from this tire.
Meaty Tire, great for the 450 to chew up all the terrain it comes in contact with!
Best tire I have purchased to date. Tried Metzler and Bridgestones and this tire provides traction and performance better than those two brands. Very durable in rocky conditions and much better traction in muddy conditions. I would purchase the Maxxis tire again.
I really only have 1 short ride on these new tennies, but I can already tell I'm gonna love 'em. Changed them out for some worn MAXX CROSS IT's which were also good, but for where I ride (Nevada & Utah) these babies are the way to go. They handle the hard stuff & only time will tell as to how fast they're gonna wear. But I couldn't possibly wait that long to write this review. I'll follow up with another review if something crazy happens
Don't let the word "Desert" fool you. This is an awesome all around tire. Maxxis accidentally created the best North West tire in my opinion. I haven't tested it in full blown winter mud/clay, but I don't have any bad doubts. Really stiff side walls make installation a pain but make up for great mobility and pinch protection. Like all tires they need to have the right PSI to tackle a certain terrain. Plus or minus that range this tire will hold its own. Excellent wear and great traction over rocks and roots.
This tire is by far the best i've tried. I ride mostly trails in Capital forest, tahuya, shelton fair grounds in Washington state. Usually most of the tires i've tried i can get 5-8 rides out f them. This tire just keeps going. I usually buy 1 set a year. Love this tire!!
Bought a set of these for my sons WR250F, His CR250R, and my KLX400R. We ride on the track and on Massively rocky terrain with very sharp rocks and these tires give great grip in not only those areas but sand on the mesa in NM as well. After 20hrs of riding in the mountains on rocky terrain these tires have shown almost no wear, no torn knobs, and no cuts. I just ordered a new set for my CRF450R. great job maxis.
I put this tire on my KX 500 and after two rides, there is minimal wear. Impressive considering the way that bike ate a Dunlop. I ride in SW Idaho Owyhee mountains and there is lots of lava rock. I was so impressed after the two rides that I put one on the front. The next tire on my WR 450 is going to be one of these. Ride on, Camo4stealth
The second number is an aspect ratio measurement. This number references the overall height of the tire from the bead to the tallest point in the center of the tread. This number does not actually represent the height of the tire in millimeters, but rather a percentage of the width. On the 120/90-19 the sidewall height would be 90% of the tire width, approximately 108mm.
