TKC 80 Review

I run TKC 80's front & rear on my 2012 BMW R1200 ADV during the Summer. Off road they are unparalleled! On pavement the confidently grip in the corners. Only gripe is the low mileage I get out of them, but that is the price you pay for great all around traction. pliable sidewalls lend themselves to easier flat repairs in the field if you run tubes. Won't run any other knobby on my Beemer.

Cape York trip 3500 km off road

These tyres are durable great on sand clay and dirt with real ability to absorb corrugations. Able to do fine pressure and suspension adjustments for a great ride. Amazingly no flats and hard wearing I am sold on these.

Great tires

A little pricey but these will go right through mud that the stock tires would leave me pushing through. Compound is soft, got a couple cuts in knobs within the first few rides on them. Much better on woods trails, and on gravel. Haven't had the chance to hit sand yet. Only had on for 1000+/- miles and are wearing well so far, with plenty of slab but I've kept them inflated relatively high as recommended for my bike (KLR 650). Almost forgot, grip in the twisties is excellent, can drag pegs comfortably. Couldn't go back to stock but I'll be debating between these and 805's next time, only due to a longer tread life. However, I don't regret buying these at all.

Great for the 990

Much better than the stock tires on the 990R. Better in the rain, on dry pavement and off road. Plus, they are less expensive than the only other real contender for a replacement- the 908RR.

Awesome tire, but...

I've gone through several sets of these. Front cups after a while but the rear doesn't. Pretty good in the dirt when new and always great on the pavement. I'd buy more but they've priced me out at this point. They aren't TWICE as good as a T63, just twice as expensive.

TKC

They're ok- quiet, predictable, appropriately grippy. A 990 ADV makes it short lived. But, it eats em all. It has a softer sidewall than the 908RR. Better for 20% off road / 80% on road.

soft compound

Front Tire: Gives better performance than anticipated. Hooks up well on dirt and is surprisingly sticky on pavement for a knobbie. Not too buzzy on pavement. Rear Tire: Wears very quickly on large dualsports. Buzzy on pavement. I now use a TKC front with a K60 rear and they work well together and wear out about the same (8K-9K) mileage. Plus the TKCs seem a little expensive for what you get.

A great "All Around Tire" with few compromises

This tire provided just what I was looking for on my adventure touring bike: The maximum possible in off road performance without compromising on road performance. Other than the inevitable increase in tire noise that comes with a nobby tire the TKC 80 gives up very little in the way of on pavement performance compared to a street tire. The rear tire did wear out quickly - it was gone in about 2500 miles of which about 2000 were on pavement.

The best of both worlds

This tire is simply the best all-around tire I've run on my KTM 640 Adventure. The 150/70 fits perfectly on the rear and provides ungodly levels of grip on the road -- oh, the confidence it will inspire! I was a little worried how it would operate off-road, but in the generally dry, rocky conditions we find on the Central Coast I now prefer it to the more open-lug patterns I used to run.

Only tires I use

Like all the other ratings. Have them on a Suzuki Dr650 and BMW R1200GS. Great for on/off road. Grip well but wear quickly because the rubber is soft. Will buy them again. Ride mostly street. Get about 2500 miles. Very easy to change if left in the sun to warm up. Rated at only 100 mph.

Great off-road, good on-road

Probably the third time I've purchased this tire. Currently on my F800GS. Recently this tire got me out of 6 inches of loose sand in Central Oregon on an extended off-road ride. Careful on the turns and take it easy on the wet pavement.

good dual sport tire

I have used these on several bikes. They are very stable on the road (for a knobby) and wear well. They are a bit more expensive but hold up enough for it to be a good trade off.
