I asked about this before and didn't get an answer. I burn through more than a set of knobbies a year and since I ride just gravel/dirt/paved roads I don't need the traction but would like a tire that lasts longer. I found this set on Ebay, like the price and the fact they will fit my stock wheels. 4 ply is better than the 2 ply stockers. Anyone ever run these or anything close, I'm mostly interested in how long they last.

I run Maxxis Spearz M991 (front) and M992 (rear) as I do a load of miles on the road. Probably last 3-4 times as long as the Maxxis Razr2's. Not sure how they would handle on gravel but they stick like the perverbial poo to tarmac.

Nothing really gives any traction on gravel, In fact if you have tall lugs it makes it like driving on ice. My stockers are like slicks now so think I'm gonna give these a shot. Don't think they could do any worse and if they will last me 3-4 times as long I'm money ahead. Another thing about dirt tires on gravel is they grab tiny rocks and you get hit by them all day.

If all you do mainly is fire roads then without a doubt I would think the street tires would be the way to go.
