Conti TKC80 Tires

I just brought an 09 klr a few weeks ago and i'm in the process of dialing it in. It has the oem tires on it the bike has 5200 mi on it. I plan to use this bike 2up most of the time on dirt roads probably 80% off road 10% and paved roads 10%. Stopped a bike store and was looking for tires to do the job I'm considering the TKC80's. Would welcome any suggestions on tire selection.

I Liked them on mine good tire. I am about to remove both of them. Fair mileage but the front chopped up on me and I thought they just plain cost to much.
I just purchased some Michelin T63s $55 rear $57 front free delivery.
I will mount them my self this weekend or next. They look good.
That much dirt %80 I would look at the Dunlop D606s. Great dirt tire.
Hope this helps.

I have TKC 80's and love them... one the second set and i get about 4-5k out of a rear and the front usually is cupped by then so i replace as a set.

With that said you might want to look at the new Kenda Big Block tire. Similar tire but half the price and depending on who you ask a better tire with comparable wear.

Just my two cents!
