I had a little chat with Irish Saunders from Hoosier last weekend about what they're up to as they move into the MX/SX world. You can check it out here.

I’m not sure what the final price will be. But they have Racing Tire in their name...not Budget Tire.

Talking with Irish, he said that the tires they’re racing with now are all handmade.

At least they are putting a price on it. I would rather have the option to buy it if I feel it's worth it, vs not having the chance.

Now this is what I’m talking about! Good stuff! smile

Good stuff.. Outside of what the recorder captured, was anything said about how the relationship with the ClubMX/Redemption Racing team came to be?

Positively, absolutely 110% obsessed with anything MOTO.

Irish and Hoosier are the real deal. I really like that they will make everything available to all...not special tires for "special" racers!

GuyB, is there anyway I can be on the wait list? I will send a deposit today to be able to have them....As long as "Hoosier" is painted on the side of the tire.

Tomac and/or Anderson for 2020.....

How good did the front tire turn out? What about the rear... any of you guys get to try some of these out? What are they comparable to?

Take some time to listen to the Keefer podcast.

Can't you just give us an idea? It will take forever to sift through all the podcasts to hear it.

Essentially said they are the best tire you can buy. Period.

They are IMHO, the best tire that can he purchased by the average guy. I’ve ran the x20 rear on my 450, I currently have a x25 rear and x25 front on it now. The x20 lasted longer than the Dunlop mx33 does in the terrain I ride in.
I’ve also just mounted an x25 18” rear and x30 front on my off-road bike.
They aren’t for everyone, considering the price, but if cost is not a deal breaker, I suggest you try some for yourself ! You can thank me later..... wink

110's are skinny so don't run that on.a 350/450. Go the 120.

|

3/2/2019 7:26 AM

I think I need to try a set of these. You guys think the 110 is to narrow? Get a 120/80?

Had these on my 450 for a little bit now wear is about the same as an Mx33 or any other rear tire on a 450.. they have a lot more traction that what I was used to. Which is confidence inspiring, I’m about 15 hours in and about to get a new rear tire but it’s an mx20 so this one I felt was going to wear faster as it’s the “pro compound” .. but that’s expected on a 450.. i will probably go to the mx25 next.

Running an mx30 on the front and it has worked well in just about all traction levels, best on the hard pack and int conditions, but still has a soft terrain tread pattern so it works pretty good in sand as well. I will probably try the mx25 front next as well.

But like Keefer said in the podcast, and I couldn’t have said it better, it’s a premium race tire, not a budget tire, so I don’t expect them to last as long as some other tires.

Yes, I ran the 110 on my 450 when it first came out, they only had the 110. I put the 120 on the last one and it looks a lot better on the bike. The 110 worked great with no complaints at all, but the 120 is the way to go on the 450.

I have a 110 that I bought for my KTM 150. It’s lighter than the Dunlop 100/90-19 and slightly bigger. It should be a nice fit....

For people running the Hoosier tyres, are people running the 120 size rear on 250f bikes?

Hi Justin glad you're cheery! It probably depends what level you ride. You sound like you're fully sick bro and are at full mad dog level like me!

I just installed the 110 on the stock 1.85” 250f rim. It measures 4.6” across the side knobs which is about the same as the Dunlop mx 33 in 100 size. The Bridgestone x20 100 I took off measure 4.8” across the knobs. The Hoosier has a noticeably sharper arc profile than the Bridgestone/Dunlop. The Hoosier 110 weighs almost 2 pounds lighter than the bridgestone x20 100.

I am not sure how the 120 would look on a 1.85” rim but according to Hoosier’s tech specs you can run it.
