Great rear tire with Tubliss
I have ridden this tire for a few years now and feel it is the best all around tire for the Neutech Tubliss system. easy to mount, blocks don't chunk off like other tires, grip is good and it lasts a while. I wish they were a little cheaper.

Great tire!
I live in the Arizona desert and this tire is awesome while new. It does wear quickly but that's the trade off for traction. They are virtually puncture proof.

Very good tire
Great tires that hold up well in the desert

-m-2018 HUSQVARNA TE 300--
Tires were great... I'm ride in the desert and they hold up through all terrain. A continuous buy.

Maxxis Intermediate Desert Tire
We just finished a 3 day 500 mile Baja tour over rocks, sandwash, desert, forest, pavement, mud and everything in between and the tires barely look scrubbed in! A great value and good traction for where the rubber meets the trail.

Awesome Tire !
Perfect all-around do-it-all tire.Very stable in the sand and always sure-footed and predictable. Never loses lugs or chunks.

Works fantastic in the desert and the rocks and can also be run tubliss with low air pressures successfully because of the stiff carcass and sidewalls. I have run well over 600+ miles on these tires and they wear like iron.Pretty hard to beat

DOT?
A shopper on Jul 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This tire is not DOT rated.
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 live in Arizona. All different types of terrain from soft sand, hard pack, to rocky trails. What tire pressure is most recommend for these conditions?
Devin O on Aug 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This tire has a stiff carcass and stiff sidewalls and is outstanding for rocky desert terrain and only adequate for sand. For Arizona general desert trail riding where getting flats is the main issue I would use a super heavy duty tube at 12psi. If you are racing or riding fast then you will need to use 14-15psi. The bump absorption won't be very good from the tire but it will resist pinch flats from rocks. I recommend you use a tubliss system or a mousse. With the tubliss you can lower the pressure down to 8-10psi which will make the ride softer but not so low as to make the tire wallow around on hard pack.
will a 120/100/18 maxis Desert IT fit a 2018 Wr250R that has 120/80/18?
Alex S on Jun 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I believe that it will. I think that's what my bike is. And it's simply a bit wider. Makes it harder to mount, but gives you more tire underneath you.
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.
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: Depends on your style of riding. I have an 05 CR 250 that I prefer to run the 110 width because I can spin it up faster. Loose dirt, desert racing and mountain riding.
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?
