I put 4 of these XTR's on my Suzuki KQ700 back in 2007 to replace the stock Dunlop tires that came with it.I ride all over the country,from the mountsins of Kentucky,to the flatlands of Indiana, Hatfield/McCoy trails in West Virginia and the coal mine region of Shamokin,PA..the XTR's dig and carry me thru anything..even after 3500 miles,I'm at 50% tread..these are the best tires for longevity,traction and durability I've ever seen.Worth the money.
These tires are nice all around tires. You have the big lugs to get through some mud but they don't ride as rough as some of the other aggressive tires. I have ran these before and they last a long time. They don't have a ton of traction on smooth slick surfaces like pulling onto a trailer with a smooth steel deck or on ice compared to an all terrain type tire because you are sitting on the lug and not the entire footprint hits. I wouldn't really consider any other tire though. They grip good, last a long time and they are reasonably priced.
These tires are one of the best I've had. The handling and ride are superior. I'm very pleased with the purchase, Motorcycle Superstore had the best price on the net, even though there were issues with the shipping in which they had no control over, they resolved the problem and my tires did arrive and they are great. I would highly recommend this tires to anyone, You wont be disappointed.
