DUNLOP ELITE 4 REVIEW
TIRE BUYER'S GUIDE
HOW TO: CHANGE A DIRT TIRE
Dan B (Stanardsville )
Used the 230s front and rear for years in all 4 seasons. Hot, cold, wet, dry, you name it. Total confidence. I usually just go with flow so my treadwear is averaging 20-22k on the fronts and 9-12k on the rears. Great tires and great service here as well.

I bought a set of these tires and have had great results. I use them on a HD XR1200x and got about 8000 mi. before the back tire gave out. Front still has some tread but close to done. Ride mostly in the Smoky Mts. so not a lot of straight line riding. Am more than satisfied. Will buy again.

Update on original review...I will not buy these tires again! Coming back from Ft Worth this past weekend the rear tire separated on us :/ after only 2 months of riding and 2k miles ugh!! Just hope the manufacture warranty covers it!!

I put a set of these on my ST 1100, These tires handle great dry and wet, ( I always slow down a little when its wet or raining ) the cornering & feed back are great. I got over 13 K on the frt & over 14 K on the rear tire. No joke for real. I put a set on my 919 also and it being a lighter bike responds very well with theses tire from side wall to side wall. No chicken strips on either bike. I have put another one on the frt and have a new one ordered for the rear whenever I need it.

Trying my 1st set of the Pirellis. Was running Pilot Road 4 GT's. Love the Pilots but wanted to try the Angels. I only have abut 1500miles on them so can't speak on the life. Got about 5300miles out of the rear Pilot. Cornering is basically the same wet or dry. If the mileage is same or better I may have a new tire. Running on a Dyna/touring with Gsxr1000 wheels and suspension.

I replaced a set of Pilot Road Trail 3's with these on a VSTROM 1000. The PR3's handled well, but were hard with approximately 8600 miles on them. They would slide a little, but were very predictable. These Avon Storm 3D X-M's have average warm, dry grip. They are unpredictable at lower temperatures (below 65*F). They are absolutely scary and unpredictable in the wet. They will break traction while riding in a straight line under moderate acceleration from 4000 rpm in 4th thru 6th gear. They do seem to wear well with little wear showing when I removed them at just under 2600 miles. I went back to PR4 Trails.
