I've used 5.10 X 17 Kenda K270 (exhaust shimmed outboard one washer) and same size Kenda TrakMaster II rear tires (the latter, shimmed outboard two washers); excellent mileage and versatility on the K270, and outstanding off-road performance from the TrakMaster II (no mileage concusions yet available), matching 3.25 X 21 fronts in both cases.

I'm amazed at how pavement-friendly the TrakMaster II is, runs smoothly up to Interstate speeds, takes the twisties with some confidence; off-road champ, doubtless. Don't know about mileage yet, but--they're rather affordable. With access to replacements, what? ME worry?
