It would be awesome if the rear is as good as a Dunlop 908RR, love that tire, hate the price.
Where did you source them from?

Looking forward to seeing what you think of them ChiTown and what kind of mileage folks are getting out of them. For giggles - what kind of mileage are you getting on that 908RR rear?

Just spooned on a scorp rally front on mine. Previously ran the MT-21 up front. Will probably be going for a fast gravel run tonite. Will let you guys know. For some reason, or maybe my imagination, it looks like it's a bit wider then the MT-21.

I've got around 5 thou kms on the front now. I did the Washington discovery trail and then decided I should go to northern Cali, mostly via twisty pavement. The tire is great in the dirt/mud and ok in the snow. I assumed it would be spent after returning home but to my amazement it has about half the tread left, and none of that crazy scalloping that is typical with most front knobbies. For comparison, my buddy left with a fairly good MT21 and it's now worn out. For the $50 bucks or so I paid for the tire, it's going to be hard to beat it.
I think you'll appreciate it for the type of riding you do Chi.
IMO it's a good match for the E09 I like out back.

Put about 100 miles on the Scorp Rally front. I really like it's manners in hardpack clay and gravel. It seems to track a bit, which is to be expected from this kind of knob layout (smaller knobs with bigger spaces in between). It's asphalt manners were no better than the MT-21 but no worse i'd say. I had the front at 32PSI and rear at 36PSI (Mitas E-09). So far so good.

I'll know soon enough as soon as I hit the OR/ID border and mount these tires next week.






I love forward to hearing how that rear tire wears. My Kenda Big Block didn't last nearly long enough.

That rear looks like the 10mm tall knobs on a TKC.

Hey Lost,

Thanks for the update on these tires. Question- how do you think the Scorpion FRONT compares to a TKC front? The Scoprion looks much more agressive... which leads me to think it has a lower milage life on the pavement, but a getter grab in dirt and gravel when compared to a TKC.

As always, I apprecaite ALL your posts and RIDE ON !!

Judging by the wear I have on both those tires for the miles, I'd say the TKC will outlast the Scorpion, but not by much. I'd say it will depend more on which one starts cupping badly, and so far that's actually been the TKC. There is really no comparison in the dirty stuff.

for PSR front for the Husky. Just love that tire. It does skate around a bit over 75 on the road, whether running 15lbs or 24lbs. I imagine pumping it up for road will make it last longer.

Running a T63 on the back...400 miles of Death Valley last weekend, about a third road, has rounded off the front of the knobs. Height seems to be okay yet. Hook up and predictibility good. Certainly much better than the Karoo Traveler they come with. Would be willing to try the Rally on the back as well, but still looking for that magical rear tire with good on and off road manners and good wear.
