Supermoto Semi Winter Tire Suggestions - October 15, 2015, 12:53 PM

Fellas, Just picked up a Husky SM610. Want to ride it in the winter. Maybe in some light snow... idk. Any suggestions? Something that can handle commuting miles, and a little offroad?

Also, any shops specifically you guys go to for carb tuning etc?

Winter/snow - Commute - Off-road - on one set of 17" tires.

That's a tough one. I'd lean towards a fast warming Sport Touring compound for winter but it will suck on anything but dry ground when off-pavement. (I base this choice on the fact that I'd rather slip and fall while off-pavement due to a tire with not enough tread than slip and fall on the pavement due to a tire that was hard as a rock)

The real shame is that the tire manufacturers make all sorts of awesome M+S tires specifically for low temp winter use in Scooter sizes and some of the tread patterns look like they would work great for light snow, wet roads, and light off-pavement as you desire, but as far as I've seen nothing in the 17" (or any other full size bike) rim size.


There's bold riders and old riders, but damn few bold old riders.

Race rain tires work well during the winter. Talking 40 degrees and lower. Work great in dirt not mud.

We can tune that bike on our dyno.
