120/100-18 Maxxis Desert IT

Does anybody have some feedback on a 120/100-18 Maxxis desert IT? I currently have a 110/100 but was considering the bigger tire for my 2006 FE450E. I mostly do single track in Arizona.

thanks

I've used that size tire here in Southern Oregon; did well in ruts, roots and rocks.

I had one in that exact size on my bike.

It's a pretty good tire most everywhere.

Works well at low pressures as its a fairly stout tire.

I kept it at 16-18 psi for most dual sport rides.

It's a fair bit taller, and definitely wider than other 120 series tires.

You will probably like it as it will make your bike more responsive.


As a bonus, it sticks surprisingly well on tarmac for a knobbie if you're into that kind of thing.

He's likely referring to the rear MT43 which is a great DOT "trials type" tire IMO.

Ups-They are great on smaller bikes especially on tight trails, and wear well.

Downs- Not a great desert tire, soft side walls, spin if ridden aggressively on big bores especially in sand or loose terrain.
