    Overall Tire/Tyre Review

    One rider reported problems with two rears that failed due to a confirmed bad batch. In general, the tires are long wearing and are good on a variety of surfaces. The tires do have stiff sidewalls, so that may or may not be a positive for you. One rider had a flat and because of the stiff sidewalls was able to ride it to a gas stop.

    On a 950 – had two 908 rears fail, the center lugs had a hollow void and disintegrated, confirmed air in the mold, Dunlop replaced for free so rider was happy.

    One rider says the tires last years, good on pavement, sand, mud, just about anything except wet rocks. On a 2003 610 – likes the tread pattern, sidewall seems too stiff for the bike, doesn’t really flex, real squirrely on the loose stuff. On a TE 510 – loves the stiff sidewall, got a flat on day 3 of Dakar, rode it for 20-30 miles to gas stop, recommends if looking for a tire that will wear for a really long time, while offering relatively good compromise traction off road and on.

    19 reviews. 4.4 of 5 stars. On a KTM 640 Adventure – handles well in loose and dry, tears up gravel roads. Another says that on pavement it is a very good tire with predictable looseness, in mud it is a bit squirrely. On a KTM 990 Adventure – super stable leaning deep through turns on the tarmac, can handle big bore power. On a KTM 450 – good in mud, sand, even in snow.

    On a 2009 KTM 950SE – tires wander a bit on the pavement but are confidence inspiring off-road.
