I've had good results with an Anakee 2 on the rear and a Karoo 2 on the front. No real problems with this set up so far. I've done a 600 mile trip that included 300+ miles of forest trails/roads. The Karoo is a great front in the dirt and not too bad on the street. The Anakee is my favorite tire on the DL1000, so far I'm on my 2nd Anakee. So far have just over 1500 miles on the set up and the front shows very little wear. I would recomend this combo for any mixed dirt/pavement or minor comutes. Knobbies don't bother me, as I 've had plenty of dual sports with knobbies over the years and like them. My 2 cents FWIW, air pressures are crucial for ANY dirt, mind you

|notacop||Yup the same type. I mix match them all the time. Now a Knobby/street tire mix may give you some odd sensations. I've not tried that combo.|

As long as they are both the same types: radial-radial or bias-bias.

different tire in front than back
I have read a lot of posts on here about which tire is best and the opinions are all over the barnyard. So, I'm not looking to stir up a debate.
I have Trailwings on mine now and it looks like the previous owner has a newer rear than front. In fact, it's an '05 and I wouldn't be surprised if the front is original.
Anyway, I want to put a Battlewing on the front and wanted to be sure that these two, different tires were okay to run together.
