Great tyres, supermoto specific and nice and sticky.

Suit motos perfectly.

Compared to some of the tyres ive had no there not

Silly question can I fit a tubed or a tubeless tyre to the rim or will it only accept one as my dealer said the replacement was tubed and the ones on there are tubeless?

maxxis gold speeds are shite. Get a set of race scrubs and explore what these bikes are made for

debating weather to shell out a bit more and just change both the tyres on the ktm as apposed to putting a near identical "supermoto" tyre on the rear ive heard good things about the maxxis sport diamonds but has anyone actually used them?

£135 a pair delivered cant moan but about that when just a "supermoto" rear will cost me £80 delivered

or I can get the supermaxx sport for £148 a pair but im not sure there needed

Shame you didn't get what was recommended. Less than £50 for a set of tyres.  :shocked:
didn't like the amount of tread left on them if im honest terry as atleast at the start it will be used for commuting so id need another set before I know it and ive always shredded supercorsas when ive had them any experience of the maxxis tyres on motos?

Dont know how far your commute is. You would have got 1500 miles out of the rear.
