    Best RXV 450 tires for 80% trailwork / 20% road

    Hey guys,

    I'm new on this forum, i'd like to get you guy's input on what you think is the best tire on the RXV 450 for mostly trailwork (~80%) and 20% road.

    I need a tire that can handle enduro style conditions with good climbing ability but that won't absolutely melt on the road. (needs to be legal for the road)

    What do you guys recommend?!

    Cheers

    JM

    I like the thread on these (the motoz)....somehow looks more versatile than what i currently have.

    Can you guys tell me in which sizes you have these.....the rear is fine, for the front though, i currently have a 90-90-21.....and the only option available from motoz with this tire seems to be tubeless.....did you guys convert the rims to tubeless or you used another size for the fronts?

    Thanks for the insight!

    I have a 80/100 Tracula on the front running a UHD tube.
    I went this path as I wanted a little wider front end in soft sand.
    Cheers
