Perhaps I was not clear enough. I am leaving the Karoo 3 in the front and putting the Anakee 3 on the rear. I realize it is all a compromise. If I wanted the best traction in muddy clay, I would replace the worn Karoo 3 with another. That tire has done quite well off-road, but wears too quickly and isn't exactly confidence inspiring on-road. My goal is to have a combination that handles my normal daily commute without totally sucking when I cut through the pastures and play in the dirt.

I hear ya.

I rode deep-ish gravel, flat dirt, wet grass on my 3's and they handled fine

I would suggest staying away from soft sand and mud though

Mitas E-07 or the Dakar version, only available in Canada but they ship to the US.

My 2014 R1200GSW came from the factory with these tires. I only have about 700 miles on them so far, but so far I'm impressed. I did about 300 miles in the rain on various types of paved roads(twisties, highway), and they worked perfectly.

I haven't tested them off road yet but I don't think they will do very well in New Jersey sand.

I also noticed they are a little noisy, but not distractingly loud.

I just hit the Michelin Home page and nada there. Would be interested in these also.

It's called Anakee Wild and was announced awhile ago but never showed up in the market.

I just posted about this in "Parallel Universe" (as it's 21" front tire specific, F800GS), but it won't hurt to throw a cautionary word in here.

I got a set of A3's last week, and while the rear is not an issue, the front would not go on my rim. I took it to a local shop and the tire guys could not mount it, period. They gave up after 2+ hours.

I don't know if the bead is too small or what, but this one's going back.

FWIW, I had a bit of a struggle getting my A3 21" front to mount up, but it did. Harder still was getting it to seat correctly, but with enough attempts, lube, and air pressure, it did.

They are a BITCH, seems like it is a 20" tire, but I have managed to get 2 on my F800GS rims. Love the tire.
