I don't think anyone has considered these yet.

Looks more like a street tread.

It's probably about perfect because it looks like the center treads would make for a semi-smooth street ride, and the big lugs on the side would help alot in the dirt. Now if we can just find the aforementioned "guinea pig".

I mentioned these a few months back in the tires suggestion thread...AFAIK no one has tried them yet...they are probably Chinese in origin

The Bridgestone TW-34 in 180/80-14 measures 25 5/16" in diameter, and 6 15/16" in cross section.

I think you should buy them and ride 3,000 miles in two days, then report back




I need a new rear tire ASAP but I'm waiting for someone else to try these first.

26X9X14. It's actually 27" inflated.



Without an extended swingarm you have to set the axle back for clearance. Limits the amount of available chain adjustment, but with a high-tensile chain it's not a huge issue. I should warn you that in a stock swingarm rocks can get hung up between the crotch of the swingarm and the tire and rip off tread. Kinda risky. IMO most of these tires need a couple inches of extra swingarm length.



Once hunting season is over my bike will get torn down for its final ((yeah, right) iteration. The first major change will be a 2" extended swingarm.

My main concern is they their profile seems kinda flat, more like a car / atv tire... Even so, they look sweet and somebody needs to try one!
