If the walls are strong, then it would be a winner since this is the main grievance against Metzeler Sahara.

I think some people may actually still be trying to add something constructive to this thread, not just play your silly guess the tire game.

Just pulling some chains, calm down !

Tire threads are like oil threads, what works for one, may not work for another. The type of riding determines the tire. Most 950's have approximately a 4.25 width rim (except 04-05), so the 140 cross section tire on the wider rims, do not perform well on twisty pavement. That leaves terrain type, choose what suits your riding.

Moving along...

Yanks!

Yep, a 140/80 tire molded and designed for a 2.5 rim is going to work really great stretched out on a 4.25 rim. Uh-huh. Unless you want to turn, only problem. Put a SE rear wheel on with a high side profile dirt tire and itll work as designed. ALOT of bad advice here in this thread. MT-21s, Deserts, etc. These dirt tires are made for 2.15 to 2. rims. Just WTF are you thinking? You will have NO corner. These tires will spread out like holy crap on that wide stock rim. 950 rear is made for a low profile rear tire and only 3 I know of will fit properly. Conti TKC-80, Scorps, and ?????????????? Made by Heidenau at the behest of us over at LC8.org Weve been begging them for some time to make this size yet its oddly still not available over here. It will be sold as a K60 Heidenau once it makes our market.

May I ask, who started this Tread and what did he try to intend?

I guess the Author had certainly NOT intendet a discussion board about pro and contras of Tires for the LC8 or even be rude to each other. I guess he simply wanted to puit a summary together with all the Tires there are for the LC8. I also guess, that to discuss them, he was thinking, that the users, or whatever you wannw call them, will have the sence to take out the Infos they need and then open a new tread to discuss the tire there intrested in.

Hey , but what do I know? Im only guessing...
