I'm running Karoo's in the front. I use the front quite heavily when riding offroad and find the Karoo's do a good job as they grip well IMHO.

Prefer the softer rubber up front for the grip.

Rather live one day as a lion than a thousand years as a sheep.

Have you worn out an E-07 on the rear yet? Just curious what sort of kilometers you got from it and your current impression of the tire...

Mitas E-09 rear and C-17 front on a 800GS

Let me introduce myself. I've been a lurker on this site for a couple of months and have now joined as it's definitely the best adventure site on the net. I live in Johannesburg and have recently bought an 800gs which came shod with Michelin Anakees. Just about wiped out on gravel a few weeks back and now need to fit some decent rubber.

I'm thinking of running a Mitas E-09 rear and a C-17 front. Anyone had experience of this combo? I've read some good things about the C-17 on one of the other forums, including that it performs quite well on pavement which sounds too good to be true for a knobbly. Obviously it will wear fast on pavement but more interested in how it handles - vibration, stability, cornering etc. I know that knobblies are treacherous on wet pavement but would appreciate some feedback on the above.

Ive worn out two 09's and im changing an 07 this week. Got 11,000 out of one 09 and 5,000 out of the other. The E-07 has been the best 50/50 ove used so far, hasn't torn any knobs and they havn't gone completely round at 14,000k's they are on the wear markers.
I spend the little bit extra on front tyres and go between TKC's for 50/50, miche HP4, because they dont wander like D606's.
