Currently running a Bridgestone Battlecross X20 rear on my bike and have really liked it so far. I’d be interested to hear if others on here have used it as well and if they think the durability is decent (I’ve only put 5 hours on mine). The X30 may be a good one for you as it hooks up nicely on both soft and hard-pack and wears really well.

Anyone on here run the Maxxis Desert IT rear?

I run the Michelin StarCross 5 Medium. Front and rear. Have 15-20 hours on them I’d say and just getting to the “wear bar” I’ve been happy with the traction and will replace with the same soon.

I haven't tried the x20 but tried the x30 rear and didn't like it, I much prefer the x40 rear. Don't mind the x30 front though.
The x40 is the best wearing rear tyre I've had and still hooks up pretty decent too

Used to run them all the time but the prices got out of hand. My kids been running kenda's it's what we can get the best deal on. we run the Washougal II on the front for just about everything and on the rear either a Washougal ll or Millville.

What the fuck is a tyre?

I've been running STI tires, probably haven't heard of them. But the tech 2 pro that they have out is an excellent tire. I race the GP series here and I've had no complaints. Affordable price also

Been running Kenda Washougal II this year. Been a good tire and you can find killer deals on them. Just yesterday I bought another rear (100/90-19) off Amazon for 55 bucks. Im also running the Washougal II up front as well.

I'm running X30 front with X40 rear on my KX250 and I was impressed with it out at milestone a couple weeks back. I do like the X20 rear also for sand and softer conditions but it wears quicker than the 30 or 40.

Never try to argue with idiots; they will only bring you down to their level.....and being more experienced, they will beat you at their own game!
