I have decided not to put motocross tyres on my freeride as I really like the extra grip. People who seem to have put enduro/motocross tyre miss the extra grip you get with the torquey engine. I have distroyed the original dunlops with treads hanging off and they are not road legal.
Choice of tyres below, any thoughts would be greatfully received.

Original tyres;
Dunlop d803 tyres pair 2.75-21 4.00-18 Pair £130

Not sure what you mean,
TUbliss is an inner tube and I wanted to know people's preference for tyres on a 350 freeride.

Frogger would be your best bet but I think most people will be running enduro tyres on their Freerides and not trials tyres. It really depends on what kind of riding you are doing.

Hi , Although I keep OE Free ride Maxxis tyres in stock, we have plenty of customers that have gone away from Standard Trials tyres, and wanting more knobbly.

The best option is Michelin Comp 6 front and rear , the rear is a softer side wall , than most other Raod legal FIM Enduro tyres, and works really well on Freeride, go for the narrower 120 option, that you would have on a 125 / or 200 cc, as again doesn't over tyre the bike ,and fits in the swingarm better..

Hi, I have a Freeride E and have worn the OE tyres out - don't want the same again, especially the front which does not grip well in mud/loam.

Would you advise the tyres mentioned above - need to be light weight as much as possible to reduce rolling resistance and keep the battery going ;)

Current tyres are as follows:

Maxxis: a TrialMaxx (2.75-21) up front and a MaxxEnduro (120/90-18) at the rear
