Great tire!!

How can you go wrong with a Dunlop tire?!?! Hooks up great, lasts longer than normal and a proven winner!!! Of course installing a tire with tire irons is a bear!!! So ease of installation will always get a low score.

Decent tire

I read the reviews on the tire when I bought it it was easy to put on but wore out very fast

Great grip!

I bought this to replace an older Dunlop Geomax, which I loved. The Dunlops have a profile that's more round at the transition from the running surface to the side knobs than the Michelins I'd used in the past. I'm not a setup geek by any means but there was a noticeable difference when I switched to the Dunlops; the bike felt more nimble and eager to lay over into the turns.

Mounting wasn't bad, a little stiffer than I remembered the previous set but I was also somewhat out of practice (and happy about that) so I probably made it harder on myself than necessary. I ran 10-12 psi in the rear and they gripped very well in the mud and wet rocks. I think Dunlops tend to wear a little faster than the Michelins, but I also think the Dunlops tend to provide more traction later in their lifespan compared to the Michelins. Full disclosure: My impressions of the Michelin tires were based on the M12 & S12 from a few years ago and I liked those tires a lot. I was going through a few sets of tires in a season at that time but marriage and a kid changed my priorities. I have not tried the current Starcross series.

Overall I'd recommend these tires. They're not the cheapest ones out there but I'm not wearing out tires very fast right now so I wasn't worried about a few extra bucks. When I get the chance to go riding I want my stuff to work well with no hassles. In Vermont we ride everything from hard packed clay to swampy muck to rocks and these tires provide great traction everywhere. I'm sure there are tires better suited to any one particular condition but these are a good choice for the rider who faces a variety of conditions.

Great tire

I bought this tire a month ago, and it was easyto install. Dunlop has a very good compound and the tire has a great tread pattern. It helps me when I'm on the track and the track was freshly watered track. Price is great! It helps me GEETT IIIT!

Durable & Versitile

I have this tire on my YZ125. I ride trail and track. Performs well in sand too. This tire has lasted longer than I expected and I ride on rocks sometimes. It's not too soft and not too hard. I would recommend this tire to someone who rides multiple types of terrains. I am looking to replace this tire with a new one and continue to use the same kind because go with what you know and what works for you I say.

Great trail/track tires

I always buy Dunlop tires, because they never disappoint.
I ride a lot of trails, but they also hook up great on track.

Hold up well in mid-soft conditions

My track is an unnatural mix of sand and hardpack. The MX32 or 3S tears up too quickly, especially the side knobs. The 52 seems to be the solution and hooks up well without the premature wear.

A: No. The MX52 tire is a hard terrain tire. For soft terrain, mud or sand, Dunlop’s MX11 is the tire of choice.

A: The mx11 is best for extreme mud, but the mx52 is the most versatile for all conditions, because it's not always extremely muddy.

A: I run this tire through hard pack every ride, it's a strong tire and I've been really surprised when I end up home and I don't have chucks of tire missing, just becuase almost all my old tires would have a noticeable about of wear on them. This tire is pretty impressive

A: I recently rode for 6 hrs on a new one of these. The track was a field of grass that was only mowed to let you know where to ride. It was mostly dry hard dirt by the middle of the day and these tires performed very well and showed almost no signs of wear.

A: THIS IS NOT A GOOD SOFT SAND TIRE UNLESS IT IS DEFLATED TO 4 PSI AND THERE IS SOME HARD PACK UNDER THE SAND. WHEN THIS IS DONE IT'S LIKE A LESS STIFF MX51. IT IS HOWEVER A GOOD ALL AROUND TIRE FOR ME AND I LIKE IT FOR WOODS RIDING. IN SEMI SOFT SAND I KEEP THE REAR AT 8 PSI AND THE FRONT AT 7 PSI AND THE TIRES SEEM TO DO WELL WITH TIGHT WOODS GNCC TYPE STUFF SO LONG AS YOUR NOT RIDING IN 50/50 ROOTS AND SAND ROCKS.

A: The Dunlop Geomax MX52 Rear Tire is more of an Intermediate to Hard terrain tire. If the ground has a cushion to it, rutted with soft berms, you probably need a soft terrain tire that will penetrate through the loose soil. Dunlop’s MX31 is an excellent choice.
If the conditions are strictly soft deep sand or mud, you might consider a specialty tire like the New MX11.

A: It's pretty good all around but the mx11 is best in sand, but the road to the sand is best for the mx52

A: You can run the 450 sized tire, but it is a taller and wider tire. You may have issues with clearance, handling and may need to regear the bike. The OEM size is always recommended.

A: You could install a 110 90 19 would work fine. 120 might pull to much power from the 250.
