Didn’t pay much attention to the knobby pattern until I had it mounted and was happy to see the staggered center knobs. This pattern makes leaning transitions much more stable since you have a better chance of having biting edges on the ground at all lean angles
Great all around desert tire despite being a soft terrain tire. It does great in sand and rocks.
It's an excellent tire
This tire was super easy to install, and it preforms and looks great.
On my crf250r it is way better than a mx 51
I've always run Bridgestone, decided to change the front tire to a 203 when my 403 wore out, raced this past weekend (on soft dirt) and fell in love. It helps my cornering a ton and I immediately felt faster in the corners. In MN, most of our tracks are sand/loam so this combo (404 rear/203 front) is perfect!
bought these for my 07 yz250f, wow what a difference over the stock units, im not the most experienced rider im only on my second bike but I can definitely tell a huge increase in grip both in a straight line and in the corners, ive also noticed that I have more control of the bike while entering and exiting corners of all types, sensational tire hands down
This tire will stick you well in corners and ruts - especially in the medium to soft stuff. I purchased this for my 08 YZ450F and it made a world of difference. So much so, that I wish I had taken it off and put it on my 2013 YZ250D when I brought it home. I'm not happy with the front tire the new 250 came with, and it's only because I've spent thousands on the bike and need some time to recover that I haven't replaced the front tire with one of these awesome M203s.
I bought 2 of these for our Yamaha 250F's and they are amazing no matter where you are on the track. We ride in lummy soil and tried it on a sand track and it worked flawless.
