What a great tire. I have 50 miles on this tire already and am very happy with it. The deflection is great and performance for off road is second to none. Fatty tire is the way to go for off road rough terrain applications.

This front tire is so good it will change your riding and change your life. Someone once told me that he didn't like the tire because it was too stable. Haha.
Requires 12+ psi.
rode 260 miles over 4 days of super rocky trails in Stanley idaho. 12 ish psi. med duty Innertube. this thing really is a rock tire. did great on rocks roots and loose boulders. at the end of the week it was still in perfect shape. no torn knobs no round edges. it is expensive but worth every penny. will be testing it back in kentucky soon. probly do good on hard clay and maybe decent in the mud soon to come
I've been riding for 54 years, and sand / deep sand has always been a bit difficult. This wider Fatty tire seemed to make a noticeable difference in sand, AND, the front end traction is the best.
While noticeably bigger they look fine. These things coupled with a bib destroy rock gardens and hook up on everything. The wide contact patch for a front tire is superb for hard enduro riding.
I know all the pro offroaders like this tire.. I guess I'm not a pro.. decided to try this tire on my 13' 250 sx and it was a fail from the first ride. this tire just upset the handling of the bike and I could never get the bike to turn in to the corners. went back to the Dunlop at 81 and got my handling back.... weird.. right?? sorry I wanted to like this tire...
I recently purchased this tire due to online research and reading reviews. I went riding with this tire on all types of terrain... snow, loose rock, mud, and sand. Tire performed in every condition and the wider tire gives more confidence in washy- deep sand terrain as tire sticks to ground.
Installed on 2018 KTM 500 EXC-F. Absolutely holds the line on gravel, shale, rocks. Rolls over whatever gets in its way. Street legal, but feels squishy on pavement. Won't be making a practice of riding at highway speeds on asphalt. But it will hold the line at 65 in loose shale. Eleven hours so far, no visible wear. And no, you don't need to use the insert; can install with a tube like any other tire (I was uncertain too, and called the factory).
I have a 2013 KTM 300 XC-W . The suspension was rebuilt by Stillwell . This GT216AA fatty is the best for tight technical single trac here in NW Colorado. I am running it tubeless with +/- 10 psi . Love it ! DD

Question asked by Ironman
Question:Q: Tire sizeQuestion asked Over 3 years agoQuestion how much taller is the 90/100 over the 80/100 I would like to try a wider front tire on my 14 rmz450. I would like tire for woods single track. Curious on how it would work on mx track. I ride both. Also. Is the 90/90/21 same height as a 80/100/21. Thanks for your time. Todd
Question answered by AustinUser's contributor status:Question answered Over 3 years agoAnswer: A: The way you read the number on tires goes as such. Width/Aspect Ratio/Diameter. What this means is that a 90/100/21 is 90mm wide. The aspect ratio is a percentage of the width, so it would also be 90mm tall, and fit a 21in rim. An 80/100/21 would be 80mm wide, 80mm tall, and fit a 21in rim. That makes it 10mm taller than a 90/100/21. A 90/90/21 would be 90mm wide, 81mm tall, and fit a 21in rim. This means that a 90/90/21 and an 80/100/21 would have a height difference of 1mm.They are basically the same height, but one is wider than the other. -Austin
Question answered by bingram28User's contributor status:Question answered Over 3 years agoAnswer: A: On the 80/100/21 breaks down like this
Tire width/ tire height from rim/rim size
mm/mm/inch I believe
So 80/100/21 and 90/100/21 are same height
90/90/21 is lower height profile with a wider
Width than the 80/100/21
On a side note almost all newer 450's come stock with the
90/100/21 or 90/90/21 for better steering and traction. As far as woods riding I don't know what those guys usually ride for a set up but I did mx track and that's what most everyone is doing
