Yes, another dreaded tire thread.
The distributor is out of K270's, GP1's, etc.
The only CS858 I see is 460/17--no 5.10's
BS makes a TW301/302 that looks interesting, but the rear only comes in 460/17.
Has anyone used these tires? They are stock on XR650's.
I am not sure that the 4.60 tire would be that much of a disadvantage as it would probably spin a little easier. With as much revolving mass as a KLR has (balancers) it could probably do with a smaller rear tire.
Has anyone used a Kenda 776 hard terrain enduro tire on the front?
Thanks in advance,

Is there a reason that you only use one distributor?

I highly recommend American Moto Tire. Good prices and service.

I just bought d606's from there to try. I may end up going with k270's again. I liked everything about them. I figured I would try something new though.
