Great tire for Baja
I had heard good & bad about this tire....local shop owner talked me into a Dunlop 606 rear before I bought the Maxxis. The Dunlop didn't hook up as well as I had hoped and the wear was more than expected (Dunlop 606). The Maxxis Desert IT was the next tire I put on...put it on myself and it was a paaaaain but after baking it in the sun and using windex and a lot of cuss words it finally went on. Did a 500 mile trip down in Baja with hard pack, sand, pavement, etc. It's a bit slippery on the dry hard pack but what isn't. Did great in the sand and pavement. It wore very nicely and I should get another trip or two down there out of it no problem. I'm hard on rear tires....weigh about 190 and ride a 450x.

best tire ever made
i use this tire to ride single track in the west coast rain forest. use tubliss with 0-3 psi and its awesome. try it, you will not use anything else again. must use tubliss with low pressure, otherwise you got a stiff desert tire and it will suck.

Best tire for desert riders!
Great desert IT tire that is built to last! Paired with Nitro Mousse makes for a bomb proof setup.

One of the best Off Road tires out there.
I have best using the Desert IT on all my dirt bikes for year. It has a great side wall that prevents pinch flats and it durable in rocky terrain.

Love it. I wish they made a DOT version for my KTM 500EXC

Tire is strong like bull.
Great tire for local desert, mountain single track, and long Baja trips. Holds up great with minimal wear. This is my go-to rear tire.

super long lasting
I beat this tire up for almost a year before it was unusable. Absolutely insane durability at 11 psi ultra heavy duty tubes. I race desert/rocky so cal mountains type terrain and it has handled great both front and rear.

Will this tire work tubless?
A shopper on Jun 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: If you are talking about the Tubliss system, then yes it works fine for that system. Tubliss just needs a good bead which almost any tire will work for. If you are referring to some other type of Tubeless system I don't know! Hope that helps!
I have a 17 kx450 and it said a 120-90-19 would fit but it rubs the swing arm and basically doesn’t fit.. help please?
Dyllon B on Jan 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Stock specs for your bike are 120-80-19, I have not had a kx but I have used the Maxis 120-90-19 on a 16 yz450f and a 15 ktm 350 sxf with no issue. There is not a huge difference between the two but the 90 is a little wider.
Can I please get a rear one?
Luke M on Aug 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would be happy to help. What size are you needing?
DOT?
A shopper on Jul 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This tire is not DOT rated.
Will the 120/90-19 fit a '01 CR250? Is it overkill, I just like fat tires.
Peter P on Nov 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes it will fit! I don think it's over kill you have more sidewall so you won't pinch a tube. I do a mountain race with this tire because of jagged rocks.
