    Gidday other Gasser riders

    Coming time to replace the original tires that came on my 2019 EC 300

    Any recommendations?

    I ride in NSW , so not much mud! Ride 90% single track / slow speed technical stuff.

    Thanks

    I'm on the Mitas single green front, and a GT516KE rear from memory.

    The Goldentyres are a safe bet - 216 fatty and 333 rear are a solid choice for example.

      If I ever do enough riding to wear out the stockers I don't know what I'll use.. Ol dunlop MX32/52 combo.. Don't hook up well. Don't last that well. But predictably priced and predictable performance.

        Hopefully they're still selling them when the time comes, mate..

          On my 300GP I'm running Dunlop MX32 rear/Michelin Starcross 5 Soft fatty on the front & pretty happy with this combo although I'm about to take them off so I don't shred them on hard pack in summer. I have found that the MX32 rear lasts pretty well for a soft tyre, way better than the Starcross soft rear.

                The/your profile matters & not just on DBW.
                I like Golden; although I've never been one.

                A flat-profile wears well: It-is vertically-stable.
                A round-profile steers quick until it wears flat.

                I'll typically chew-out my tyre-edges b4 centre.
                It's merely-me; you should buy for your usage.

                I like a rounded-front: Has-grip on it's sides.
                My rear is low-pressure: It melds as-it must.

                With my riding style I rip knobs off-the side.
                If you're into stoppies: Well, that's different.

                Afaik: Golden-tyre gives us several profiles?
                Easy to choose ill-suited profile & hate that?

                  Shinko 505 and 525 cheaters are good rears.

                    Depends a lot on the riding you’re doing.
                    I tried a 333 in straightforward terrain and was entirely unimpressed - give me a Starcross5 Medium any time!

                    Then I did consecutive rides on the same technical terrain - first time on the 333, second time on the SC5M. Things that were a bit tricky on the Golden Tyre were suddenly much more difficult on the Michelin.

                    And suddenly I was a convert.

                    I *think* that the Michelins will be better for normal racing, but the GTs are definitely better in the tougher stuff.

                      They probably don't already!

                      I'll likely give the goldens a whirl given I'm not doing as many hours as I can afford to splurge a bit.

                      I like riding in the mud and slops where the tyres generally caked in clay.. you learn to work with limited traction.

                        For this type of riding you could try the Motoz arena hybrid gummy. I find they work well and at $125 good value

                            Very good tyre the mitas. The yellow stripe was good, too. Better edge grip than the GT333, but the straight line traction of the 333 is great - it's like a sand tyre.

                              We need to inquire... Front or back... or both... We/me/us are doing that now... atm... imo?
                              Tyres affect suspension to some extent... It's more about altering suspension to suit tyres?

                              I'm a lazy-arse bum: I don't claim to know either. I know what works for me & what doesn't.
                              It's dear to buy tyres & fiddle suspension too.. Know it-that you seek.. Make that-it happen.

                              Edit: Typically ambiguous of me: Find/know what you seek... Then-your costs are minimal.
                              If you're forever unsure-unknowing of what-you seek-want... Then-you lament-satisfaction.
