I run this tire on the rear of my 2006 and 2011 yz250f. track, trail, rocky creek beds, asphalt...
nothing seems to stop it !
I originally bought one for the rear of my XR285R. I noticed in the first 2 months little to almost NO wear, and I ride the wheels off my bikes.
Liked it so much I bought them for the YZ's. You will not find a longer lasting better performing tire for the money as far as I'm concerned.
And the staff is so pleasant and easy to deal with.
I love to ride down the back country dirt roads and these tires are exactly what I needed for my Zuma 125. I didn't quite feel comfortable riding on the OEM Kendas, as I could feel them slip a bit here and there, not even going faster than 30 mph, but I tried these things for a bit on dirt last night and they felt so much more reliable. Very happy with them.
We have been using Maxxis front and rear on our 2 stokes for years now and they are excellent tires. Since we mount these ourselves there is a noticeable difference with the quality of rubber and the ease of mounting. Longer lasting, overall good tire for the woods here in Southern Oregon.
The tires have awesome grip in the mud and pull great. The ride is a little rough at very low speeds on hard ground but smooths out as you grain speed. Nothing that my grandson of 13 can't handle. I would buy them again for sure if you playing in the mud or sand..
