As long as Dookoo doesn't come on with his video of his dirt riding with a CT I think my dirt tires look as good as Them Darksiders. Eric

that rear tire looks like a kenda ( challenger ) tire. the load rating if i remember right is not very high and you may actually be overloading the tire

I think it's a great idea. I'd like to try a set of those on my dually wheelbarrow.
don't forget to post some pic's of the wheelbarrow when you put the m/c tires on it :D

well i mentioned the kenda tire because when i first started looking for new tires for my 1200 wing i looked at kenda tires but was told that the load rating was too low for a fully loaded wing with a passenger on board. frosty is recovering and i don't want eric or his wife ( or any of you guys ) getting hurt too

I can't get away with anything. That is a Challenger and I got that tire in Alice Springs. It was the only tire there that would fit. I alread have the replacement Dunlop in the shed but I will wait until the Challenger gets down a bit more.
The front tire is a Dunlop 404 and that will match up with the tire in the shed. Eric

The front tire is a Dunlop 404 and it looks good for a bit of dirt. Eric

iwhen i got my 1200 wing the tires were so bad that it had large blisters in the threads so those tires had to go. i decided on dunlop 404's but it was late in the season with about a month of riding left. i had a 404 put on the rear tire just so i could ride to work for the time left. over the winter i talked to a good friend about tires, he loves 1200 wings and refuses to buy anything but 1200 wings. he is the one that told me about the load rating being too low. one of the shops i deal with confirmed what my friend said and will not put 404's on a wing

I don't want to sound a bit thick here but are you saying that a Dunlop D404F front tire is not the right load rating for a 1200 GW. Eric
