Worth the price +
Put a set of these on my klr650. I ride mostly hard pack roads and some pavement. They perform great. When I find myself in some sand or mud they hold their own and will get you home. Exactly what I wanted at this price point.

Pleased for a 50-50 tire
I have bought two sets of these for my 2016 KLR650. The first set lasted about 5200 miles. I am using IRC heavy duty tubes and Dyna Beads to balance (one ounce front, two ounces in the rear). I ride my bike to work once in awhile but my rides are probably close to 50% dirt.These tires do pretty good on the street and highway; I'm not a speed demon but I like twisties! Pretty predictable for as far I'm going to learn the bike over. Braking is predictable. I did experience some cupping on the front, but it wasn't horrible. The tires seemed to get a bit louder as they wore down, new they're fairly quiet. I didn't experience any chunking. I have been running 24 psi front and rear on the street.

Off road these 244's are a huge improvement of the stock Dunlops. They're pretty good in Arizona rocks and hard packed surfaces and do ok in all but the softest surfaces. I don't ride much in mud (especially deep mud). I don't think they're not the best for deep mud or deep sand. I still haven't settled on a best air pressure for off road use.

These tires are an incredible value! Two new tires for under a $100 with free shipping is awesome! The best tires are new tires, so get ya a set.

Pleasantly Surprised
I decided on this set based on two things 1) Price 2) Recommendations from friends. I have only had them for three rides. I have given them a pretty good all around test. Sure footing on the pavement, Solid traction in the loose dirt and gravel, and as reasonable as can be expected in some sloppy muddy forest service roads. It will be interesting to see how long the tread lasts. At this point with a wide basis test I would definitely recommend. They seem to be a solid tire and an extremely good value.

Got what I was looking for
Just like a dual sport bike, it's not the best at anything but it is just good. Can't beat the price. The ordering and shipping were flawless. I will buy this product again

Good overall tire, but if you truly ride 50/50 I would recommend something with a little more bite.

Good cheaper front ire on TW 200
After buying shinko before for my KTM and not being pleased , i was willing to try out their dual purpose tire for my non performance based bike TW 200, For a dual purpose tire the knob height is almost the same as a full moto hard terrain tire with very close knob spacing, you get a little knobbie thump at low speeds on pavement ,but offers good off road traction / DOT tire with a more rounded profile that works good on pavement.Tire is heavy & thick . No rating on tread life as i am using the little TW 200 for trail upkeep . I think it it a very good priced tire & recommend it for TW owners who want a cheaper but aggressive D/P front tire. I used the 5:10x 18

good tire, good value
I put it on my Suzuki DRZ400 that I use as a road bike. Road traction has been fine and off-road it has done OK, but I haven't really put it to much of an off-read test. I am not looking forward to pulling that bike out of the mud if it gets stuck.

Does this tire come with tube included or does it have to be purchased separately?
A shopper on Sep 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The tube must be purchased separately.
I have a 76 Honda CT90, I shows this fits but only offers it for the front. Will it not fit the rear as well?
JEFF R on Oct 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Honda CT90 uses the same tire for the front and the rear and they are 2.75 X 17. If your CT90 is stock then yes, the tire will fit.
