The tires are Dunlop D606 front and rear. They handle both the dirt and the Tar rather well. I ride 70 / 30 dirt tar. Wear has been fair on the rear, 2000km and the front now has 3000+km. Dunlop has a new tire released that is apparently in competittion to the Michelin Desert and Baja. I am yet to try it. A harder version of the D606 I was told.
