Yamaha IT465 Tires?

I am in need of DOT approved tires as I am riding to town and back.

12 miles of pavment and 9 miles of fire roads.

I also will be riding some single track mostly sandy & rocky So Cal desert terrain.

I saw the Shinko SR700 Series Dual Sport.

Is there a better tire chose?

I agree. While I'm not a huge fan of the fronts I think the D606 rears are great and last quite awhile for being a knobby. They're available for that 17" wheel too

I have the Shinko 700s on my 640 and find them pretty good on tar and better than you might think in the dirt. That being said, if you want better dirt over street than the Dunlop 606 or the Pirelli MT21 would be my choice(s)...
