Motoz Tractionator GPS tires

Anyone have these more interested in thoughts on the front tire right now. More than likely going to try a pair but just wanting to hear from any of you who have experience with these. Thanks for any info..

Rather than waiting a day or two for a response, there are already plenty of impressions posted if you do a search of the forum.

Not much info out on these tires, in particular here on the forum. Consensus "elsewhere" is that they are right on par with Mitas E07 and Heidenau K60's.

I was about to say couldn't find much on these specifically just the desert HT and others. I think I'm gonna try a set this dirt season.

Be sure to report back with your thoughts, as I too am intrigued by this tire.

Hard to pull the trigger knowing how good the 805/804 are, at the price point it's killing me to do it but I don't like the front 804 much. It's cupping pretty hard kinda why I was asking for people with experience. At the very least I'll be picking up the front. I wasn't extremely impressed with my buddies E07 front not much tread there compared to the 804 definitely felt like it would slip easier.

I am interested and following too, I am just about 1,500 miles into an E-07 rear and looking at the E-07 vs GPS for a run up to Deadhorse and back next summer. Looking to see if I can do it on one set of tires.

Have a look on the ADV forums Aussie section , some guys over there were using them and posted up their thoughts.

Always a compromise with 50/50 or 60/40 tires, but there is a very good reason why so many who venture off pavement run the E07 and K60's. My Shinko big blocks have been great, have about 3.5K on them and still decent tread left. They wear better than TKC 80's for half the price, really hard 50/50 tires to beat.
