    I have been looking at this tire for the front, did some research and it is supposed to be a little more offroad oriented than th Shinko 244.

    Or so it says... doesnt look it, especially for sand! I was looking at that one as an alternative to the kenda k270 and the shinko sr244 but it doesnt seem to have the aggressive tread that may be needed for mud and sand. Not sure though. I am gonna stick with ones that others have tested. There is nothing wrong with being a guinea pig, I just don't have the balls, money or time Go ahead and try it and let us know what you think.



    In reference to the comment below-

    I dont think you need to worry too much about the wear since it will be going on the front.

    I have one on the rear of a KLR650. Wears evenly because there's no center bar, so less brake sloping. Wears pretty well, possibly more steering-friendly as a front tire than some others. No way to be sure til ya try.

    I'd try it if I could find one around here. A good price $51 . . . I am going to have to go narrower due to price and availability here.
