I'm really looking forward to those Continental TKC 80 Twinduro's since for one all my market will get is the Adv R and the other point being reviews. Just about everywhere you look these tires are rating 4/5 stars. They apparent get good mileage which aside from the grip will serve us daily city riders well.

That's always great to hear. Tire ratings are something I really look heavily to especially if I don't have experience with them. The good mileage I typically don't look at but hey, it's always a plus! I'll have to check in on what the treadwear is like on them as well.

Depends where and how much you ride and your budget. Sounds like you don't require much from tires so like many people these should be good enough. How many miles you think you'll put on in a years time?

I covered around 10000km on my TKC80's until now. Mostly commuting, but I do have around 20% dirt road as part of my commute. These tyres are great offroad, but wet tar is definitely not recommended! There is no grip in the wet.



I am not the hardest of riders and generally ride like a pensioner, so don't take my mileage as a benchmark of what you can expect out of these babies. I have heard that 2000km is more common on a set of these.

What you guys recommend for me?: I like grippy tires when offroading ('cause i'm a noob) and the TKC 80's are great for that. Problem is, I travel a lot 2 up and fully loaded and that rear tire melts like butter in a hot pan. I barely do 5000km with them. When i bring it offroad, i look for solid ground mostly. I hate sand, but enjoy a little bit of mud. Most of the time it's rocks and tree roots. I dont fear rain. It never stopped me from enjoying a ride, but I dont ride hard in it. So grip in the rain is secondary to me.
So that being said, what tire combination would be great for 60/40 surface and tough compound for heavy loading?
