Have a fresh pair of tires on order for the DR650.

I honestly cant remember how long the tires have been on the bike. I put a fresh front on around 2015-2016. The rear is older than that.

The rear D606 is beyond shot. The front doesnt look too bad but Im sure its well past its prime.

I ordered the Tusk brand d606 look alike. I’m guessing the tkcs on the Husky are probably not the appropriate tire. I’ve got a few months to wear them down before I swap rubber.

I think I will do the same thing. The TKC's aren't bad for things like Shenandoah 500 where you have alot of fire roads but suck when you get to real trail. The D606 looks like a really nice tire. I have never run one but have heard nothing but good things about them.
