I know threads about tires have been beaten to death like oil threads
so forgive me but.....
I tried the search thread and did not find what I was looking for....
Does anybody run a knobby front and more of a street thread rear
any advantage in doing so? disadvantage?
I ride pavement to work daily but and quite a bit off pavement.... well I will be after my KLR sells anyway.
My thoughts are knobby up front (my front is gone) and the OEM tire on rear (mine is new) so when I know I am going on a weekend ride I only have to change and buy one spare tire (the rear). I have heard of people making Alaska and similar rides doing the same so they only had to strap one tire to their bike.
This way if I am traveling and see a good gravel road to go down maybe the front tire will not be as bad about washing out
Reading the tire threads the front knobby life seems to be about the same as a rear street tire so tire changes would be at same intervals.
Oh, and my bike is the DL1000
So what are yalls thoughts?
