DOT Tires

Post  bobwire on Tue Jul 16, 2013 6:37 am

I have my XR650R street legal so I need a DOT approved tire for the bike. I'm in Arizona so I need a tire that can handle hard rock and sand and still handle the pavement. I wont be doing to much street, I have good riding within 30 miles, anything over 50 miles I would trailer the bike. Any feedback would be great, thanks.

I read some reviews on the Kenda and most were positive and the price is right. Thanks.
