Looking to replace the K70s on my CL450 for something a little more "aggressive"
Not looking for knobbies, just something that fits more on a scrambler.
Bike will live on the road, but I would like the option to do some exploring on fire roads and such.
Looked at K60 Scouts, 705s, and a few other tires.
Anyone have a recommendations?
What have you used?
Tires on the bike now are 3.25X19 and 4.00X18
I assume 100/90-19 and 110/90-18?
Thanks for any help.
Picture for attention!
Am I over thinking all of this?
Should I just get another set of K70s?

I never really gave trials tires a thought. I guess I just assumed they didnt work well on the street.

Jaguar: Nice bike!
If you want to go back to K70's but find Dunlop doesn't make your sizes any more, take a look at Duro's HF319 Vintage tire. They're almost identical the the K70's (the sipes are slightly different but the tread block is very similar). I just fitted a pair but haven't ridden on them yet--don't need to find out how they work in the snow! See below:
