Green laning tyres

Postby Syd » Tue Aug 15, 2017 11:45 am

What's the latest thoughts on green laning tyres? I have crf250x. Looking for reasonable wear rate but decently chunky. I'm not worried about them lasting forever.
I have Ac10s at the moment which I've used for enduring/rally type events.

Are you doing a lot of road miles? The tyres that perform best in the dirt will disintegrate fairly rapidly on the road, however for green-laning you don't need the best tyre and you can even run pretty worn out tyres with little ill-effect

I'm a relative newbie, having only had a little experience over the last year.

I've got a Yamaha ttr 250 that has Bridgestone trailwing 301/302 fitted, and tbh they've been fine for my level of experience. As i tend to do a fair amount of tarmac en route to any BOATs they seem capable enough and haven't destroyed themselves either.
