IRC is always a good tire!
Scott R on Sep 28, 2020
I prefer the 3.00 inch wide tire on the front on the front of my 2012 dr650 se. Looks like a great tire and after research made the decision. Should do well for gravel road riding.

Choose the IRC TR8 based on good reputation and they have the DOT knobby profile I prefer.

Needed an aggressive dirt tire with good road manners. Additionally, reviews were good and it appears to last
jay a on Jan 18, 2017
The IRC TR8 front tire is awesomely versatile and long-lasting for the price. I wish IRC made a 17" rear to fit my DR650s.

I have targeted these for my 2001 xr650l. Can you confirm these tires are compatible?
Big Red on Oct 3, 2012

Do they make a tr8 in 17” rim size?
mike l on Mar 28, 2020
BEST ANSWER: No 17 inch tire size. The 21 inch front is dot approved and my favorite tire for the front of my DRZ. I am getting 5000 miles from this front and it still has knobs. The rear tire is FIM approved so it has short 13 mm knobs. Beta offers these tires as optional on their dualsports. They are made in japan quality is good. Try the front.
my bike, 1981 IT465 has a tire size of 5.60x17 for the rear - this says it will fit, but it's a different size?
A shopper on Jan 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. It says it fits for the front tire, unfortunately we do not have a tire size 5.60x17 the closest size we have is 5.10x17, just about half an inch narrower. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you by contacting us by email at [email protected], Live Chat or by phone toll free at 1-888-339-3888. We are always more than happy to help.

irc tr8 300-21
Thank you for stocking this tire. If you ride off road but must use a lot of pavement, this is the front tire for your dualsport bike. This tire is dot approved, aggressive, yet wears evenly on slab. I am getting 5000 miles from this front on my drz 400, best to rotate it at say 2500 miles. My drz has 52000 miles on it, and I use it in the sand here in Fla. Best tire I have found for jap dually J. MO. Edgewater Fla.

Great 50/50 front tire
I had a MT21 on the front of my KTM 640 it wore funny and was unpredictable. This tire with a kenda k270 on the rear worked great on all surfaces. I can predictably slide the bike on dirt corners without surprises.

I think the only comparable tire out there is the MotoZ enduro. But at this price I might stop here.

Battle Ralley Tires
I have only put about 50 miles on the tires, I ride a XR650L, geared down,Like any new tire they were a little slickery on the blacktop. Shot up the logging road, feels better then my Kenda's in the gravel and loose dirt, but not quite as grippy on the road. The street manners were improved by the time I got home, we'll see, but I think they will fit my needs.

Best dualsport front tire out there for the money!
This tire is the best value out there for an all around dualsport tire. Great price and very good all around performance on and off road. Surprising life out of what looks like a true off road tire.

Excellant dirt bike tire
I have used IRC tires for years. My sons and I have 5 XR250 dirt bikes, and these tires always perform as we expect them to. And we get plenty of miles on them Great bang for the buck.

Good looking alternative to the TKC product
I'm actually submitting this review way too soon, so a follow up posting will be coming by late September. But nonetheless,...
I chose the IRC for my 21" front tire on my F800GS. Starting Labor Day, we are going up to Colorado and along the COBDR. I've used Metzeler Karoo's and UniCross, Anakee's, and TKC 80's on the front and each of them are still good products. But I'm looking for something similar to the METZELER UniCross and the TKC80's. These "LOOK" to be a much more cost effective alternative. I like the deeper lugs than the TKC offers and the lugs are a bit larger (squares) than the UniCross tires. Looking forward to see how they handle the large sharp rocks we expect to encounter over the high country trails.
