IRC GP1 Tire Rear

Rear tire has 1250 miles on it from dirt and pavement. Mostly dirt and gravel. It took a hit from a fence wire staple. Did not destroy the tire. It is holding up well and I will try and get it back to the Oregon Coast. Will have 5K miles plus on it then.

So far the best tire I've tried.

I found other Dunlop tires I wanted to try, but they did not make them for my size rear tire. I've been riding on the GP-1's for about 18 years on my dualsport. They handle well on the road allowing me to take corners hard and they run quite. Off-road they do pretty good as long as they are not worn. As far as durability, my front tires last years, but the back needs to be replaced regularly to maintain good off-road traction. I gave them a "5" because no other tire I've tried has lasted any longer, it's just how it is.

great tire

At 35psi my klr felt like it weighed a 100lb's less and cornering was confident and quick. Once on the dirt at 20psi they really held their own against my friend's d606's and got me out of everything from water crossings, gravel, mud and rocks. Even at 20psi I was cornering at high speeds on mountain roads with ease but the road noise is quite bad for such a non-aggressive tread pattern. Bring head phones for long distance highway travel for sure.

Great "do it all" dual sport tire

These tires don't do anything badly, and can do much very well. That may sound lukewarm, but it's a very strong endorsement. On my WR250R I can get some serious lean angels on the street/asphalt with no vibration to speak of. Off-road they provide consistent predictable traction in gravel, dirt, and even sand (Pine Barrens in NJ). OK, maybe in mud they're only passable, but they're not scary. I've never experienced a tire that can do so many things so efficiently. The price is good too.

Great tire

Great handling on loose surface roads. Great on the highway and on dirt and mud too. Haven't had em long enough to comment on tread life.

Great Tire on my KLR

I just put a set on my KLR 650. Took a ride up in the local mountains, which included about 60 miles of dirt roads. The tires took on everything from loose sand to water crossings, they did great. The bike felt very hooked up in the dirt. Also very secure on the street. I will run these all summer and put another set on next winter, before my annual trip to Death Valley in January. So far, I like this tire alot.

IRC GP1 Dual Sport Tire

This is my second rear GP1 on my DR650. The front GP1 still has lots of tread left. Approximately 5000 miles on both. I have to say that I am extremely pleased with these tires. They handle great on wet/dry pavement and on dry/moist dirt, gravel and rocks. They aren't designed for heavy deep mud but can still go through all right if your speed is up. I replaced some Dunlap 606's with these. The Dunlop’s are fine but a little squirrely on hardpack gravel. The IRC's are solid on most all surfaces. They are like DOT approved trials tires.

IRC GP1 rear on KLR 650

This tire feels secure cornering hard on pavement. Tracks well at all speeds including a few 70+ freeway trips. I noticed if tire pressure is on the high side it slid some on tar snake road repairs if found in hard cornering, lowering the pressure solved this. Excellent on dirt roads. Previous GP1 rear lasted about 5500 miles 65/35 dirt roads / paved. Took off a good set of Pirelli Scorpion that felt better on the street but very bad in the dirt . I'm impressed with this for a dual sport tire. Ran it last winter, wet traction was good.

Good so far

I've only put 500 miles on them so far, 70% of that being on dirt. They handle great on and off pavement.

True dual-sport wheels.

I've got a 92 DR650 and an 87 XL600R. I use these tires on both rear wheels. I ride the XL 70% dirt and 30% road. They're strong performers on gravel, grass, and sticky shallow mud. They're a little squirrely on the really loose or the really wet slop, but are predictable none the less. The DR is my commuter vehicle. I ride all over mountain roads, curvy and vicious and they tear up the road. Acceleration and breaking shine through. They hold tight at 45 degree lean and power solidly through turns. When I see a dirt road off the side of the highway, I have the confidence to know that they'll get me through the trail. On the freeways they are solid at high speed and grippy through merging. I love these things, and they're usually the cheapest on the market.

Great Tires

I have only gone a short distance on the new tires but am very pleased with the purchase. I gave them 4's on wet traction and tread life because I have not had them long enough, but they are great for the money.

CONFIDENCE INSTILLERS

Rear tire from day one has performed admirably. Has kept bike (KLR650) anchored to everything I have thrown at it, gravel, mud, hard corners, etc. The trade-off is that the tire is soft and the tread started melting away immediately. "Bald" at 2800 miles. Have purchased the Shinko 244 clone at half the price and will have more to say about that after the smiles and miles roll on.

Great Dual Sport Tire

I read reviews for days and joined every forum before I decided to go with the IRC GP110. Here are my findings and it’s simple. If you are looking for an aggressive off-road tire go with a Dunlop 606 I think it has the most aggressive knobby tire that is still DOT approved. If you are like me and use your KLR for a dual purpose bike and you want a 50/50 tire that does great on the street and good on the dirt you can’t go wrong with this tire. I have ran up tons of fire roads and a lot of back country camping and the tires are great on this type of riding. It cuts down on high speed vibration when driving to your off road destination. MUCH better than stock I am happy with my IRC GP110.

GP-1 5.10 on DRZ-400

I looked at all the tires out there in the 50/50 and 60/40 category and chose the IRC 5.10 GP1 for my 2006 DRZ-400. The night I installed the tires it was wet and rainy, and against good judgment with fresh tires, I took the bike out for a ride. I was very surprised at how these fresh tires hung onto the wet road and the braking was a HUGE improvement over my previous set of AC-10s. Can't wait to see how they work once they are broken in. Next day on the dry pavement they also performed well. Haven't tried them on the trail yet, but I reckon they will do just fine at a lower tire pressure.
