Yes, they are 80/20 tyres.
One test described them as being a very similar pattern to the Metzeler Tourance, at least as good if not better, and cheaper.
I am on my second set of Mitas E-07's which are 50/50. I cannot imagine that the E-08's could be any longer lasting than the E-07's which still work very well on seal, and surely better on gravel. My recommendation would be that if your dirt road excursions are rare and modest, go for the E-08's.
