So what tires do you think will last the longest for average trail riding??
"trail riding" is pretty vague.
around here, I'd say 65-70% of the trails are rock and logging trails. Not many plain smooth forest trails. I'd say any tire made with hard rubber would last the longest. Heavy tires like the itp 589's.
tires like the Maxxis bighorns probably wear out sooner with their softer rubber compound- but they might grip better on hard surfaces.
My ITP Terracross have about 6500 miles on them . I'v never had a rim leak or a flat they get used on sand , rock , gravel and paved roads . Looking them over I should get a couple more seasons out of them . I will buy again .
