These guys are selling out fast! I am about to pull the trigger, but the only rear they have released is the 140/80-18. After reading up on all the 150 vs 140 threads, I am wondering if I should wait until the 150/70-18 is released. Anyone want to chime in what they would do?

i have an SE so i'll probably give it a go on the 140 size but if it were me, I'd wait for the 150 for the ADV. more weight and more than likely a bit more durable as you'd have a wider footprint to distribute the wear over, so you should get much better mileage and handling out of the 150 size compared to the 140.

but then again what do I know...

not in English but it does have subtitles. looks good for the tire if you are wanting something durable but still handle some off road decently..

We finished a 2800 mile, 95 percent slabbing it trip to Ak last week. My tire is done. We ended up driving to Prudhoe Bay in the car due to no tires and snow in the pass. Still was an amazing time.

We saw a 990 heading North to Fairbanks on roughly the 22nd as we were heading south......maybe it was you.....?....

We made it to Prudhoe..lots of ice coming back....

The front tire is fine. I really liked these tires. On road they hum, and above 65 they scream! On road manners are great. The hundred miles or so of gravel we did they were very predictable and excelled. I am going to throw another one on the back for next year. Hopefully the trip south will have a much larger amount of mud and gravel.
