Update!

Today gasgasman, getndirty, & myself rode the forest while it was raining. Gasgasman & myself were running the SI's & getndirty was running an SI front with an IT rear. These tires are just damn good. My tires are wore out and they still hooked up really good it the really slick crap we were riding in.

I will never own anything except the Maxxis SI's!

Boom,

That is a great combo, SI front and IT rear, that is what I am running. The rear IT is holding up very well.

My Maxxis SI's on front and rear did very well this year. My friends had Michelin S12's and their tires got trashed on the same trails. My rear tire knob edge is woren but it still get great traction. I'm happy with them.

I've been impressed with the Kenda Milville and Washougal here recently, and just orders some Southwick's to try out down in South Carolina in a few weeks. My buddy ran one this winter and loved it...I hope I do to.

I have a Maxxis SI front that I need to put on...just waiting for the right time to try it out.

Right now I have Milville up front and hate that tire. I ushally run GBC Dirt Sharks because They run very similar to a Maxxis IT but are half the price. The front Dirt Shark also works very well.

There's a big difference between Southern Ohio and B.C. dirt I'd say...

What other tires have you used to compare the Dirtshark with? I just love the long lasting, and super grippy compound myself.

I used to run the it front and rear, switched to EXCELLA O F 230 front and rear, very much like the it, and lasts a little longer, better price too. If any of you have ever run a pirelli MT32 this is the same tire, doesn't get much better
