This tire is great for trail riding. It will do everything a MX tire will do in the dirt and is way better in rocky terrain. The only place it falls short of a knobby is in the mud. It feels like the side wall is extremely soft when riding on the asphalt but feels just fine in the dirt. Great alternative to a Michelin.

Ran this tire for about 4 weeks, approximately 500 miles and the rubber separated from the casing with bulges in the tread. Very soft spots. If I had not seen one of the knots, I'm sure the tire would have blown out at highway speeds. Will never buy again.

I have had 2 of these on my 21" X 3.5" rim. I absolutely love the look of the wide white wall and Vee Rubber is the only company that makes one to fit the wide 21" rims. My first tire lasted quite a long time, over 12,000 miles. I always try to keep the correct air pressure in my tires. One day I checked and added air using a gas station air pump. A couple of days later, a cord busted and formed a very visible knot. I checked the pressure with my gauge at home and figured out that the gauge was off and I had over-inflated the tire by about 5 psi. Assuming that I was the root cause of the problem, I bought a replacement. Being conscious of my last experience, I made sure not to only use my own compressor and gauge on the replacement tire. Lo and behold, 6,000 miles later, the cord busted. Definitely not an over-inflation issue, it's just a junk tire. Between these two tires and the Vee Rubber rear tire, I am convinced that Vee Rubber is not a wise choice by any means.

I bought this tire for my Road King to match the 21" Vee Rubber tire I had been running on the front (a whole other story). Browsing online, it had mixed reviews, but for the price, I figured I'd try it out. It's a great looking tire and it rode pretty well. I had ridden on it for about 2 months and just under 2,900 miles when I was doing a thorough check of the bike before a 1,700 mile trip when I noticed the tire was in dire need of replacement. When I say dire need, I mean the cords were showing and should have been replaced a few hundred miles sooner. I don't do burnouts or spin the tires when accelerating and 95% of the time I ride solo. I ride 300+ days a year and I was really hoping this tire would last. In the end, if you want a really good looking tire and only ride a couple thousand miles a year or are putting it on a show bike, go for it. Vee Rubber is for showing, not for going.

Good product and thick. This should make a good trail riding tube.

I mounted a rear tire with tubliss on a KTM 350. The bad: it's very unstable and squirelly on dirt roads. And with a tubliss application it losses 1-2 psi per hour. The good: it hooks up really well, climbs well, turns well and has been wearing well with 3 hours of trail use and 3 hours of endurocross abuse. No chunking and low to normal lug wear. I will not buy this tire again for tubliss use.
