Mark S on Apr 18, 2019
The tires are a good dual sport tire, ride 70% dirt and these work well in all soil conditions. Side rubber is soft and hard lean angles are not recommended. They feel and ARE very loose at steeper angles.
David H on Apr 16, 2019
Good reviews and price
Jeff D on Apr 5, 2019
Great compromise between dirt and street, good wear, good traction, excellent price

Mark A on Jan 1, 2019
Most agressive dirt/street tire out there. Was plenty happy with Kenda's mud tires on my trucks, so should be good for the dirt bike.
Daniel A on Dec 18, 2018
Very good deal
William Y on Dec 16, 2018
I believe it is the best tire for the kymco kpipe 125 for light offroad riding. Rear application.

Always have great success when order from Bike Bandit never any problems. Orders always correct and on time delivery.
justin m on Jul 23, 2018
This is my second set of tires. Good price, high mileage, yet good off road
BRIAN A on Jul 19, 2018
Gone through too many sets to remember. These are the best for dry Montana back roads and trails, handle decent on the pavement and are cheapish.
Chris B on Jul 10, 2018
I've tried quite a few knobbies. This one is my go to choice for my DR 650. Hooks up well off road on dirt, mud, gravel, sand, and rocky terrain. I usually get about 2000 miles on a rear and 4000 on a front. They are cheap so I don't mind that the life is not better. They are not a road oriented tire.... they stick well enough on pavement, but the tires are soft and you can feel the knobs move around when you push it.
Richard H on Jul 6, 2018
Have bought them many times. Best bang for the buck

john s on May 25, 2019
This tire is listed as Tube Type. Do I need to buy tubes for these?
Elijah B on Apr 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It's always a good idea to replace the inner tube and the rubber rim protector when replacing a tire.
i have a honda cg125, want the dual sport tire look more over the performance side, but front and rear are 18's. i see someone has already asked if you can but i feel the answer wasn't that clear. what is the major difference between front and rear? surely they can't be that different
A shopper on Oct 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question!, we recommend not to use a rear tire on the front of your machine. Rear tires were not designed to steer or grip the road/dirt when the it is turned like a front tire. Rear tires might look cool and work at low speeds but once the performance comes into effect you'll notice the lack of performance right away by not using the tire in it designated location. We have attached a couple of tires that will work on the front of your bike. 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.

I want an off road 2.75-18 front tire for a 75 Honda CB125. This tire states it is for the rear. Why can't this be used in front?
bmo on Sep 15, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. The tread patterns are designed for the rear tire application. The shape of the tire is less rounded. The shape of the front tire will assist in the cornering and turning. For legal reasons BikeBandit.com does not offer mechanical/technical advice. We do offer repair manuals that may provide the info you need to help you solve your problem.
