Default DOT tire recommendations

I currently have 26X14 Rip Saws and they've been great but we do about 75% off road and 25% on road.
The on road is wearing the tires quickly.
I've been looking at GBC Kanati Mongrel
GBC Motorsports
It has a decent aggressive tread pattern but looks to wear well on the road.
Any other tires good for both off road and street use?

Those are decent tires, Budman.
Definitely hold up better on the street and they're 8 ply rating.

Hey Budman, for a few bucks more I would go with the 27" tires.
Give you a little more clearance for off road riding

Mongrel tires are DOT approved and have the tread similar to a light truck mud terrain. They are 8 ply rated and would definitely wear slower on pavement than the sedona rip saw

You defiantly radials for on road wear . They get much higher mileage on hard surfaces.
Just their flat topped profile helps a lot vs a Bias tire's curved top profile.

Here is a good write up on the difference. Bias vs Radial Tires : ATV Tire Comparison : Mud-Throwers.com
