Nice tire

I bought this recently and had it installed by an ORV dealer. The new tire is awesome, but I am noticing wear very quickly.

Great tire! Maxxis desert IT

Use this tire for a 5-day trip to Mexico ride. I was on the bike for at least 6 hours a day and had to do a ton of Road riding after the trails to get to the next hotel. After I got done with the ride the tire still look great performed amazing and would really recommend this tire.

Long life and great traction

This durable tire (second set of Desert IT’s) provides great tread life and long lasting performance. With that being said it’s nearly impossible to change because the sidewall is so hard!

Best dual sport tire there is!

I’ve got thru 8 sets of tires on my 2017 KTM 500 exc-f since last June and this tire is hands down the best overall tire by far!!! It’s held up from serious road and off road use better than any tire I’ve ever used! I have over 800 miles on it and it’s still good plus I can flip it around with a fresh edge. The compound is so strong and I will never buy a different tire again for my bike for dual sport purposes. It’s also DOT legal.

Awesome tire

Best dual sport tire around, I always use the desert IT to run and baja and it always tracks good, Andy rarely get flats because of the stiff sidewalls. And after long rides or baja there is still plenty of tread left

A: The 110 size tire will physically fit. But the 110 tire needs a wider rim to work properly - 2.15" (vs stock 1.85")

Q: 120/90-19 very close to rear shock link
Over 3 years ago
I just replaced the stock 120/80-19 with a 120/90-19 and I'm unable put my finger between the rear shock link and the tire. The tire is not rubbing anywhere but seems too close to me. I still have about an inch more of adjustment on the swing arm from where it is now with the chain properly adjusted. Would it be advisable to run a longer chain to give me more clearance between the rear of swingarm and shock link or am I asking for trouble in another area?

A: As long as its not rubbing you should be fine. I would try to move it back as much as you can. If you do put a new chain on just make sure you leave enough room for adjustment as the chain stretches. The 120/90-19 are usually used on the 500 2-strokes. The bigger tire could possibly tear up your mudflap.
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.

A: No, the 110/90-19 will not rub and you can run that tire. The 120/90-19 may rub depending on what exhaust you have.

Q: Tire Directional Arrow
Over 4 years ago
I noticed my Maxxcross Desert IT Front Tire tire has an arrow on one side. Is this a directional arrow, and do I have to mount it this way?

A: Yes, That would be a directional arrow. You will want to mount the tire so that it is spinning in the direction of the arrow while you are riding.
