Ural Tires....

What's been some of y'alls experiences with tires on the Ural GU or Patrols, 80% pavement, 20% fire roading?
OEM Uralshinas
Duros
Those German enduro "hgh dollar" tires....

So far I can't complain about the OEMs, but I'd like to better understand my options when the time comes.

Ural tires

Uralshinas cheap.....6000kms rear, 16500 kms front, working on the car tire at 17500kms.

Ride mostly 99% street, the snow was rough with the Uralshinas...not enough tread left...

I just got new German high dollar tires mounted...so far awesome. Worth the money, they have not shown any wear yet at +2000kms and they have a much more aggressive tread pattern.

I have some others I got from Wag's, haven;t had them mounted yet...will after the German tires are gone.

Those German Universals may be the way to go then....
800km on the OEMs, and the pusher is showing 1/8" of wear already. 4K will probably be it's limit.

Thumb I really like the German tires....................

Howdy All,

I have tried them all, I really like the high buck German Enduro tires, they work well on and off road. I got 7,203 kilometers out of the pusher before I had to replace it, that's 3 to 4 times the mileage I was getting out of the Russian knobys.

Hmmm....so that would be almost twice what I can expect out of a U'shina...at not quite twice the price.....so that would sem to even out nicely.
Looks like I might be opting for the GHDE's too, when the time comes.

I`m using the stock Ural 'street' tyres rather than the full on knobblies.

Up to now I`ve had 9,000km from a new set on my 650 without being half worn.
That`s pure street use but sometimes with three people and lots of camping gear.


The new set on my 750 seem to be lasting for about 5000km at the rear but the other two are hardly worn.


What pressures are you guys running ???

I`m on 44psi when loaded.

stock tires

Just last week I put the spare tire on at 3000 klicks. That's 80% on road, and the rest dirt roads and trails in Ohio. First swap, I traded the pusher for the hack and now the spare for the pusher. Now shopping for a new tread. Any one tried a duel sport tire designed for the front on the back or side car on a Ural?

Stock tires last only about 3000 km on the pusher, pretty dissappointing. I jsut bought Heidenau's as replacements, expensive tires, hope they last a lot longer than the stock set!

as a NOOB, on a rig that came w/ hiney-doo's, mounted & a set of partially used stockers, i am interested in the results folks are having

i have only ridden about 400 klicks, on the hiney-doo's, & haven't found any reason to be unhappy w/ them

they sure like playing on maintained garvelle roads

haven't had any time on wet roads, yet

He bought this bike with his own money as a "fixer upper" that he can ride and learn to wrench on. Part of owning is he will buy parts and wrench on it himself. We are going through it together and having fun! I am very proud of the young man he is becoming.

I just mounted up my Patrol with the Kenda 335's. They are aggressive tires. I like them so far with 400+ Km's.

I'd be happy with 4k (miles) from a pusher-knobbie. Is the H-tire about the most 'aggressive' available?
