Since I can't make up my mind for rear tire guess I'll go with
Shinko 705 80 something or
Full Bore 40 bout same

Any thoughts from you fine upstanding Arkansas Gentlemen

I know bout the Kenda big Knob but afraid of cardiac arrest spooning that bitch on
Stay away from the Kenda Big Block. Super expensive for what you get and mine was gone in less than 1,200 miles (on the 950).

well yes and no.

it's a better tire and value than a tkc80 in my opinion
it's cheaper, stickier on set Tarmac and better in actual dirt

but yeah unless you just have to have a knobby I'd avoid both the big block and the tkc80 for a big heavy bike

currently running a vrm 163 by vee rubber
it's. $77 tire currently has 3500 miles on it
it will be done at about 4500 it looks like
Yep for the strom....Prol most pavement but want to be able to push my or bike limit in dirt,gravel etc. wear of about 5-6000 tolerable..less if it gives me everything else I want..thinking about Alb NM. w side trips and up to Ouray, Co and back.

that's a 150 70 17 rear right?

shinko would be the bargain tire out of the
ones you mentioned
it is surprisingly capable off road and handles great on road

I always run a knobby front though so no feedback from me on a shinko in the front

I would have to change tires on the road in that case which I really don't want to do

Heidi's are expensive and too many folks have talked about how terrible they handle for me to have much interest in them

check this tire out

Maybe it was the size or something (don't remember what it was off hand) but the Big Block to fit the 950 was about $150, IIRC. To say I was disappointed in that tire would be an understatement. I felt ripped off.

I am really liking the Scorpion for the rear on the 950. It's not a knobbie and frankly I just don't need a knobbie for that bike. It will do everything you should be doing on a 500 pound bike, including dirt roads, rocks, etc., and it has (so far) lasted 3,000 miles. When it stops working you should be asking yourself if the bike belongs in the conditions anyway. Typically the answer is no.

They don't show a 150/70R- 17 for the Wee so prob going to go with Full Bore or Shinko 705
