Their rear tire tread patterns look very aggressive, and I like that, but close inspection of the pics posted here look like the compound is very soft and prone to rock damage. I would still try one, if I could find one that wasn't 300 miles away.

Order them from Kelly at http://www.motosportz.com/. He is a great guy to deal with, his prices with shipping are equal to buying from RMATV or Motorcycle Superstore, and he ships fast if they are in stock.

Wibby, I would love to know which version those are. I know the Enduro IT's are not good for the desert!

Now that was the kind of wear I was expecting along with great traction. I wonder how good the front is on that version...hmm.

I forgot to point out some relevant info on the Enduro IT's. I did find one place were they were excellent, the local MX track. It was muddy and the soil is not the same as what we ride off road here. It is more like what I remember the soil being from Northern Indiana when it was wet out. On the track it gripped great except for when it was total soup but I don't think any tire would do good there! I think the Enduro IT's were just completely the wrong tire for Southern AZ.

Anyways, my Enduro IT experiment is over now. Well, for the front that is. I just mounted a fresh Dunlop Geomax MX71 on the front and will be riding on it tomorrow. I have heard it is great for AZ so I guess I'll see!

I'm not sure I'm buying the 1800 miles on them and still having the paint line and the mold seem on them. :?

I run a MOTOZ Terraparctor S/T set on the gasser and they are way better than Michelin S-12 where I ride, for a comparaison.

Terrapactor's are perfect and made for the soft terrain and very good on a plain rock or rocky terrain. I use to run a rear trial tire. I switched tires for a grasstrack race.

For sure they are not as good as trial tire overall but the best knobby tire combo I used for sure in 10 years of practice.

If you want to see a video of them in action I made today let me know I will post :supz:
