What do you guys think about running on a wr250f? I know its more dependant on what kind of terrain you ride, but ive been thinking about putting one on. any thoughts?

put one on, you wont be sorry.they last longer than a knobby, and stick to everything. i was amazed the first time i ran one on my bike. it made me a better rider. i dont deflect or spin on rocks and wet roots anymore.they dont collect mud... what more can you ask for ??? :nod:

They like low tire pressres! There is a crazy amount of grip available but it can all go away if you pump up past 10-12psi. Consider most trials riders run 2-6psi in the rear depending on conditions.

I know of one rider that is using a trials tire on a 250. He swears by it. Always looks like he has a flat though. After going to my first trials event and seeing all of the "flat" tires and how much grip they were getting, makes me consider putting one on my 250.

can anyone tell me what a good one is?
also, will it be ok on asphalt or will the wear it out quickly? I have to ride a bit of pavement (dont worry its a private road) to get to a couple riding areas.

The Dunlop 803 is around $50 less money than the Michelin and has somewhat stiffer sidewalls. The Michelin is a little stickier and possibly slightly longer lasting.

i ride 3 miles of blacktop 3 times a week to get to my favorite trails,i havnt noticed any extra wear due to that,i was running a dunlop but it didnt last as long as i would have liked. PATMAN recomended the mich. and ive been running it since, i realy like this tire. do keep your pressure low, i run 9 pounds. :cool:
