Maxxis tires

thies tires are great they hook up through out the life of the tires but the tread wears down way faster than they should.

Good for the woods

Been on a handful of rides, tires show minimum wear-should last a while. This is a tough carcass tire, rookies might want to seek professional installation.( but that's where the long life comes from)
I ride in rocks, (lots of rocks) roots, and red clay. I avoid mud but what lve been in the back tire churned right through, front corners good. I haven't dropped the bike because of tires yet.

Great combo to ride around the desert and trails

I ride in the deserts and trails of New Mexico .
Its a great combination if your looking for a good all around tire .
Having such a thick sidewall it allows me to run lower psi and get maximum traction . The Maxxis Desert-IT set last longer then any other set I've bought in the past .
it hooks up well . There different tires on the market that hook up better but don't last nearly as long .
One thing to keep in mind when installing these tires .
They are directional tires .

Great tires

Maxxis desert IT was a good choice. I don't really think matter too much no matter what kind of bike or the brand of the tire. The back tire does all of the work. It hooks up in all conditions, but not super well in sand, but if I am in really sandy areas, the larger 120/90/19 tire does. They are a hard rubber, so installation is a little harder, but worth it.

Q: I ride lots of hard pack with slick mud or gravel on top, also heavy rocks which would cause chinking. I also wouldn't want to get stuck in deep mud of course. what tires would work best? I heard the michelin starcross 5 last. would these do the same?

A: Hello,

It sounds like a IT(intermediate terrain) tire will work best for your riding conditions.

A: Good question, you can choose the WR450F model and that will bring up 18" tire options. Just remember to switch back to your YZ250 when searching for other parts. Also, feel free to give us a call at 888-676-8853 and we would be happy to help you out with your order.

Q: Can you get the Deseret IT in a 140-90/18. That is what I am running on my 200 with the TuBliss system

I would use a 120/90/18 if needed

A: The largest size rear tire Maxxis makes in the Desert IT is the 120/100-18 for you. More than likely the stock size is closer to a 120/90-18 size on the KTM as many of them come with michellin tires that use a metric sizing. The 120/90-18 would be the standard sizing.

Q: Best middle ground tire?
Over 3 years ago
I have a 2010 RMZ 450 that I need to replace the tires on. I usually run dunlops but I keep hearing people praise maxxis tires. What would be the best maxxis tire for trail riding and some dune riding? And what sizes? It would be more so for trails but I want something that will do ok in beach sand other than a paddle tire.

A: Your Best all around tires would be the IT models. It is an intermediate terrain tire that will do well in most all different terrains. A paddle is always going to be best in the sand dunes. You may consider purchasing a separate paddle tire and wheel combo for when you ride there.

A: The Maxxcross SI is a go-to tire for GNCC and WORCS pros, and you will be equally impressed by its performance and longevity.

Race-proven rubber compound delivers excellent traction in soft / intermediate conditions on the motocross track or off-road.
Anti-flex knob bridges on side lugs offer solid straight-line stability and enhance grip for aggressive cornering.
Developed in the Grand National Cross Country series.
Perfect tire for any intermediate, loamy or muddy terrain.
