TIRE SIZE PROS AND CONS FOR 09 650

Postby 09650 » Sat Oct 28, 2017 7:34 pm

Just bought an 09 and would like to know if any other tire sizes other than factor specs are used and if so what benefits to other sizes. Also, I am doing mostly hard pack and gravel forest service roads in N. Georgia. Any suggestions on brands and type used in these conditions. I am a low intermediate rider. Gracias!!

Try Pirelli Scorpions, a road legal enduro tyre, I've used them on all sorts of bikes from 750s to 250s plenty of grip in all conditions, I normally use a 140 rear on bigger bikes at 8-10 psi get a tyre lock or you'll tear the tube
