I have used the following tires over the last 60000 kilometers with my XT 660 R:

Street:

Metzeler Tourance
Pirelli Scorpion 90 S/T

Gravel:

Continental TKC 80

I am really curious about the KENDA tires. I think that I might order a pair.

Tyres

Using the Pirelli Dragons that came on the bike. Still on the original front at 3200 miles but about to scrap another rear, will probably change to Diablos then, front and rear, as Dragons now obsolete. Have used Pirelli tyres on a couple of previous bikes and like the feel they give.

Yep.....originals as well......Personally I can`t fault them.........Probably two rears to one front in the wear stakes but they work well.
I will most likely replace them with whatever the new versions are to at least stick with the same make.......don`t know if that really matters but makes the choice easy.

Pirelli's are sticky but....

I have been impressed by the standard tyres but not by their lifespan. 1500 miles is just pants. I'll be switching back to Bridgestones (012ss front, 020 rear)) coz they are sticky enough for the track, predictable in the wet and good for at least a couple of thousand miles on the rear

I have just ordered a set of Pirelli MT 21 for my XT660R



I have been told, they should fit very well for the xtr, and handle pretty good both on the road, and offroad!

Continental`s supermoto rubbers definitely rocks. You can check the reviews out on the net. Also using a softer on the front is a good idea.

When this poll started wasn't it "what tyres do you use?" now it is which do you prefer?? I had Pirrellis at the time and did not like them, I now have Avons and do like them. So can my vote be changed to Avons?

its a mess Darrin, what I would have to do is copy the fields and redo the whole poll from the start, I can't copy the old votes nor can I vote on behalf of others, unfortunately polls are not very manageable I could add or remove fields but not interfere with casted votes
