Needed fresh tires on a CRF450X. Havent officially used these on a good ride to test them in different conditions. Tread pattern is what sold me though based on other tires I've had in the past. Installation was tough but I'm a rookie and have only changed 4 moto tires in my life. They say All Conditions so lets see how these hold up.

Versatile Cross AC10 tires excel in a variety of applications. Though DOT-approved for street use, Cross AC10 tires' aggressive bi-directional knob pattern makes them a great choice for recreational off-road and motocross riding.
- Tough, durable and economical.
- Excellent traction on virtually any terrain.
- Specially formulated rubber mix promotes impressive durability.
- Resists tearing and chunking even under hard use.
- Reversible tread pattern, with mirror-image knobs that help provide equal traction in both directions.
- R speed rating for highway use.
These tires by far are the best priced for DOT and agressive enough to get the job done. I run these on 250cc to 500cc bikes and they last long and work great.
You need DOT to be insurance and LEO compliant? These are them.
With stands the abuse of off road and track while still last well for on- road use. Handles very good in mud, sand, hard pack, on dirt and rocks and gravel. Great all around tire.
This tire really hooks up! Kinda wears quick on the asphalt, but that is common with knobbies.
Mounted these tires for the Devil's Creek ride which had lots of sand and deep mud. They worked great, I'm back and so is my DRZ400.
I bought these to replace the stock IRC tires on my new CRF250L. I am not disappointed! I recently rode over a mountain road that snowmobiles use in the winter, there was still slushy packed snow on some of the road, these tires performed great!! I wouldn't have made it with the stockies. They are smooth on pavement, the front is a little twitchy, but other than that they work well on blacktop too. I would definitely recommend these tires. Especially for the price our friends at Motosport.com are selling them at!
Put these on my crf450x before doing the Boomtown dual sport ride-in september . They are wearing well & work well in the dirt. Similar dirt caricaturists to a set of michelin starcross tires I had on this bike previously.
May try the Dunlop ds tires-my buddy recommends next time.
Replaced the Shinko E700's that were on my DRZ400S with this tire..
I Have this tire on the back of my 96 DR350 and it has held up with out chunking or throwing lugs off. Right at 4000 miles with it and still has 1/4 of thread left with 50/50 use pavement and off road
But... on the DRZ the back is a little squirmy under throttle and some lean angle on the pavement (something to watch for) and the front will dance around but gives a warning before it loses all grip... BUT it Hooks up very well and is predictable in the dirt, I believe this tire will do well here in Southern Ohio just fine..
good DOT and off road tire for the money
purchased this tire because it would be at my house in time for the next race. has held up great and really hooks up well in all conditions that occur when you race in New Hampshire.
I got the tire at about 3:30pm and I had it mounted and back on my CR250 in about half an hour. Much easier installation than my old Dunlop. I haven't ridden on it a lot, so I'll update in a couple days about durability. A little thinner profile than a Dunlop MX51, but it corners just as nicely.
its a good tire must have
