140/80 R18

Winner of every major rally in the world, from Paris-Dakar to the Nevada Rally
Unbeatable performance in the most punishing conditions, on all types of terrain
Highly resistant to cuts, even at temperatures above 120 degrees Fahrenheit
DOT approved for highway use
This tire is part of a matching set, click to see the Desert Racing Front Tire

I had a set on my SE but I switched them for the Metzeler Enduro Sahara III. The Deserts were great offroad, but I found them useless onroad, and particularly frightening on wet tarmac. As I also use my bike for commuting, the Sahara are much better for my heart-rate and still pretty good offroad.
