    Love my TKC80's

    I ride 70% off road and use roads to get to there on my R1200gs in the NW mountains. I also love high speed paved mountain passes and the TKC 80 is my number 1 tire set for stability, traction, and pure safety. I burn up rear tires far more then front with an average tread life of 3k on my rear and 10k on the front. I have tried many different rear tires but always come back to the TKC's when I need maximum and stable performance.

    Not on my bike

    I have been riding this tire on the front of my Husky TE 449 for the last 2 months and it just doesn`t hook up in the dirt which is where I spend 80% of my time. It washes out when you are on the power in corners and isn`t great at high speed in loose stuff. It works really well on pavement but I don``t really need that. So not so good!

    Excellent knobby for KTM 990

    Best of both worlds or at least as close as you can get for a knobby on the street. Big bikes that play off-road need solid front end traction. The TKC delivers that wet or dry. On-road performance is great but knobs may distort after sustained heavy braking.

    Great all around tire

    BMW 800GS - Much better off pavement than stock tires. Handles surprisingly well on pavement.

    Wearing fast

    I thought with the amount of rubber on these tires that they would last. Though I have tried my best not to 'lay into it' on a ktm525, the back tire is showing serious wear on the front edges only after rides. The tires weren't cheap, I wonder if it would be best to buy the cheapest knobby and ride like you want to and just replace the tire. I dont think this tire is going to last any longer than a 606 or similar tire. I do like how they ride on payment.

    Perfect 50/50 tire!

    I exclusively use TCK80s on my KLR650. They are the best 50/50 tire with the least compromise.

    A must have if you offroad much

    I take my VStrom DL650 out on the dirt way too much. I probably should just buy a dirt bike! However, with the TK80 I've been able to get places a big bike like the Strom has no business being. Works well on the street too. A bit noisy but the handling is good and the tire holds up well on the asphalt. About 2000 miles on a full set now and very little wear.

    TKC80

    The TKC 80 just works. It's hard to beat a knobby that runs like a full street tire. I use it on the front of my BMW R1150 GS Adventure, which is a heavy bike. It tracks very well on the pavement and helps keep the bike planted on the dirt. I would recommend this tire to any adventure rider. I normally get 10,000 plus miles out of it. I use beads inside the tire to keep it balanced though out the life of the tire.

    Great tire wherever I go

    I put these on my Dakar 650 after slipping and sliding in mud on Tourances. I mostly do street, but wanted traction in mud and am very pleased. On the street I can ride it like a sportbike, and it holds great even when wet. I ran one for 9500 miles on the front,(and just installed another TKC80) but should have reversed it on the rim after 5k, as it started getting edgy on the leading edge. A bit pricey at 2x of a Metzler T63, but much quieter on the road with the big knob blocks.

    Its a keeper

    This is my 2nd...got 6 or 7K outa the first one and could have done more but wanted some fresh rubber for the 1500 mile Tour de WY and a little bit of CO on my KLR - lots of dirt, gravel and mud. This tire is a good balance in everything...its like a KLR...not perfect for anything, but it will do it all just fine.

    TKC 80

    Good (not great) in a lot of varied conditions. I like these on the front of my Adv. type bikes with something else bringing up the rear.

    All good, but only 500 miles, so don't know about tread life yet.

    Excellent overall

    Great tire provided you spend significant time off pavement. Tread life is poor, but that's the tradeoff for good dirt performance. Expect about 4k miles. I keep this tire mounted 9 months a year, otherwise it's Tourances.

    Not a bad front for a knobby

    Got nearly 6,000 miles on the front but it probably should have been changed a thousand miles or so sooner. All but about 1200 miles were on Canadian or alaskan pavement.

    Good Compromise Tire

    I wanted a tire that could do some mild dirt tracks, gravel roads, easy two tracks about 5% of the time, yet be stable and quiet on the street for my normal commuting duties. I am very satisfied with the performance of this tire. I came from a street front tire to this. Only 500 miles on this tire, but I have had no issues from mile 1 and the mounting was painless. Highly recommended for anyone wanting a 50/50 tire.
