Best tire

This is the 4 th one I have put on and think it is the best tire for ware and traction, for my type of riding.

Tires came like clockwork

These Maxxis tires were out of stock and other places but Motosport had them at a great price and they delivered like clockwork.

Best Desert Tire

Tires hook up great in rough terrain, not the best sand tire though.

Sturdy tires!

The Desert IT tires are extremely sturdy and have very tough casings. Riding through sharp nasty rocks and gravel doesn't hurt these tires, and the only thing that seems to wear them out is climbing steep, rocky hills at full throttle. These are the go-to tire for desert folk, and work well in sand, rocks, gravel, and the occasional mud pit.

Tons of traction

Not really in the desert terrain, but for the mountains of NC this tire is great! Mix of hard pack gravel roads and rocky trails with riding on asphalt roads to get there, these tires have all the side grip I’ve been looking for and the wear is minimal. Definitely keeping these on hand!

Great tire

I bought this to replace Dunlop 805s(?) because they washed out in the dirt as soon as the ground got any kind of soft, after throwing these on I have a lot more confidence in the dirt and can finally ride where I tell the bike to. Great tires for the socal desert where the dirt can be hard as concrete or loose as a beach. 4 stars for not making it dot everything else is friggin awesome

Good tire

Was recommended by a advisor from motorsports that this tire is great for my desert free riding and it’s been a great tire. Limited wear after from sand, rock, and hard pack. Highly recommend this tire.

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 4 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.

I ride a 2008 Honda crf250R dual piped and I was curious if this wide tire will rub on the pipes when the suspension is compressed?

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.
