    Anyone using an IRC GP 110 as a front tire?

    Here's what they look like. This place doesn't have the right size listed but I can order it from my guy. Gp 110 - IRC The size for the TW front is listed as a rear tire but it looks like it would have a good on/off road tread.

    Yes, my worn GP-1 is a very different critter from the GP-110, a trials vs a motocross carcass and tread compound.

    The tire is rated as 90% on road 10% off road, so as long as that is your riding style it may work.
    If this tire is directional it may be a no go as the front tire is usually mounted so that the blocks grip when you brake, i.e. opposite direction from when used as a traction tire on the rear.

    If does work do not plan to do single track as it will not provide the traction.
