My GT 232N is terrific in the sandy stuff, and not too bad in rocky stuff too, just google your nearest stockist for prices. I paid $139 for the 232, and $149 for the 216X.

For fronts, def. the fatty!! $115

I've tried both the 90/100 and 80/100 front, both using tubliss. The 90/100 running 8 or so psi is absolutely unreal, sticks like sh1t to a blanket, however at lower psi i did find the side knobs tearing after not too long. Having plenty of tread left but knobbies tearing is the pits. I still would have gotten the 90/100 again if I had a choice mind you, but I fit a force bash/pipe guard ('15 250EXC) and the 90/100 scrubs at high compression of the forks (higher sidewall 90% of 100), so opted for the 80/100. This tyre while not being quite as grippy as the 90/100 is still a cracker of a tyre. I find this one feels best around the 12psi mark, and as a consequence of the higher psi is wearing much better.

For the desert bloke above, you can't go past the 90/100 desert version, can't remember the code but it has a thicker sidewall, and will get you sweating and swearing like nothing else fitting it...worth it though

Desert Bloke here. Thanks for the info. I have gone with the GT232 110/100 rear and GT216HB 90/90 front based on advice I received from informed sources. Will see how it goes on the mighty DRZ.
