You can see a shot of the tire at rm190 in the video here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lnlRd...tu.be&t=29m30s at time mark 29:30.

We got to rm420 after to woops loop just after it got dark in 10 hours, but the night section killed us...especially the fog.
The Maxxis Dez IT is a GREAT Tire front and rear! for a 450.
I do not like the ED78 you can spit knobs off real fast
