Son's needing a new digger on his 110cc pitbike.
It has a 3.00x12 on it now.
Seems like the only available size out there is the 80/100x12.
Is there a particular brand that anyones noticed seems to be a bit bigger than the others? Even though the size # is the same.
Kinda like how BFG's seem to run a bit bigger as far as auto tires.
Too bad they didnt do 110/100x12's! :cool:

Do you want something with a similar tread pattern or something that is more aggressive?

Just about any knobby would probably do.
Have been considering the Kenda Trakmaster2 or Millville, Pirelli MT320 or Maxxis IT.
He's a big boy though, and theres a lot of sand out here.
(thinking floatation.)
Not keen on an all out softterrain though, casue it needs to last a while.
The oem kinda looks like an old Chengshin 755.

You should find something that fits your needs here. I've been pleased with the Millvilles but they don't last forever. If you want something pretty much like what you currently have I have a couple sitting around that I'm sure we could work something out on.

I've had good luck with the Millville on his last bike.
(50cc pitbike -w- 10" wheels)
It too seemed to wear fast though. I used a Pirelli 320 afterwards and it's still on there.
(his younger cousin rides it now! LOL!)
I may just opt for the Maxxis, but i just fear putting it on!
The rear Desert IT on my 650R was sooooo difficult i ended up taking it to a shop!
If it doesn't work out i might take you up on an oem one though.
Thanks!
Are they Quing Da's?
