    One more tire ?

    Well I installed my new tires today for riding to work and around town. Now I am wondering how the new tires (Bridgestone Trail Wing TW203 & TW204) would do on fire roads. Anyone use these off-road, if so how do they do?

    Big D (Darrell) rode the entire first part of the Sheetiron 150 on worn out TW203's and 204's.

    https://tw200forum.com/forum/trails-o...n-300-a-9.html

    He is on the light blue TW with a big gas tank. Nothing stopped him -- slowed him down some but did not stop him. Once again, "It is not the sword, but the swordsman!" or something like that.

    Start on page 9 and look through it. See what can be done on TW203's and 204's.

    Fire roads they do fine,just like any other DS tire.....appropriate tire pressure is the key.

    In dry conditions I think tw203 and tw204 will be fine at anything less than race speed.

    A friend of mine swapped out his knobbies on his KLR to these style wheels and actually claims they feel grippier at speed on smooth gravel roads.

    In New England we have single tracks with bowling ball rocks If they are dry then its rubber

    If they are wet then knobbies with HUGE spacing will cog onto them and be superior

    other than that it isn't much different

    My wife and I have that tire on the front...................... For our kind of riding it's been great...... Quiet, smooth with good control on our gravel roads around here........ The only time mine felt nervous was in the tenn. mountains on gravel with ball bearing size stones on hard pack. My wifes felt OK.. I had too much air pressure... OMM.

    Thank you for all the input. After see your replys, I am going to leave them on for a 100 mile ride to Kennedy Meadows this weekend 1/2 dirt and 1/2 black top. I will report back on Monday.
