Mefo Stone master, Another lame tire thread.

Anyone that uses the 950/990 off road running a stonemaster rear?
Im a 908 fan, but would like a little more aggressive tire that might also last 1500 miles or so.
What did you think?
Did It Ride like a tractor?

+1 on the review above. Great tire, for the first 200 or so miles

I use the stonemaster rear. It lasts more than 200 miles for me, but not as well as a D908.

I think the last one I did about 4-5 days of racing (rallies) and a couple of trail rides before it was toasted. This is probably 800 miles, ish.

But - it's half the price of the Dunlop and offers loads more grip. Go easy with the throttle on tarmac though!

Oh, by the way, it doesn't fit well on the standard rim. A 2.5 rear rim is much better.

Thanks for the replies.. I was hoping for a bit more mileage, but it Might be a good option for a race, since its getting real hard to find wide knobbies anymore.

That is a great looking (new) tire, can't imagine getting many miles out of it though. Hard to beat the MEFO explorer for an all arounder

Its all about how you ride.
The Explorer is Great tire for poking around.
IMO its a scary pile of crap when pushed past the limit, and that limit isn't much.. If Im lucky I can get about 2000 miles from an explorer or Hienduu??. 908 has yet to fail me and I get close to the same life span..
NO tire is going to last long, If I can get two per oil change Ill be happy.
