Hi, I am looking for replacing my trailwings whick are almost worn out on my dr650 from stock.

Basically they’ve been good to me, from up north now im in dunedin. 8000+km. Lots of gravel and dirt, not so much mud / sand.

I am leaning towards a tkc80 front and mitas e07 rear. I need some tires that’ll go good for the trip back up and then will be used for commuting on the road and afternoons / weekends exploring. Probably around 50/50.

Any downsides to the tkc80 on tarseal? Anything comparable to e07 for dual purpose and longevity?..
