Just did about 6k on a set. My first dirt-oriented tire (previous was Anakee 2).
Holy crap, they squirm a LOT on pavement irregularities, metal bridges, tar snakes, everything. I found them downright scary on wet pavement, but it might be my inexperience. Hit a painted stretch even when you don't think you're steering, and you get a wiggle. It wasn't confidence inspiring, though for all i know it might just be a wiggle and not an indication of greater slip.
On dirt and gravel I was able to accelerate damn hard, but I don't have the dirt experience to corner hard on the loose stuff. I'm too afraid of the slip to really give it much stick, so I didn't really go any faster on loose stuff than my buddy on street tires. But it was definitely more confidence inspiring knowing I'd be able to STOP right now if I wanted to.
Yeah, they howl like hell on pavement. Earplugs are a necessity.
No real comment on tire pressures except the max listed is 36psi. I was running 36f 38r until I lowered to 35f 36r. It felt squirmy still at a lower pressure, but a different kind of squirm. I wonder if a lower pressure would result in more stable handling because you aren't jumping from treadblock to treadblock, you have more rubber on the road.
Also the 130 size rear has no center stripe (the 140 was recommended for my bike, which DOES have the stripe). The 130 with no stripe wore out about twice as fast as my 140 did. So go 140 or higher.
