Did you know Pro Wheel Racing made tires? Yeah, us neither! We’ve used their rims, spokes and stands for many years but didn’t even know they made tires or tubes. That’s why when they offered to send us a set of their “Hardcore” series tires, we were super excited to try them out! We pulled out the trusty 2007 YZ 450F, one of our old project bikes that needed a little love and slapped them on before a day of fall Michigan riding.
They offer a medium and hard compound, we went with the medium. They installed just about as easy as any tire swap can go and while they only offer one tread design it was perfect for the sandy and loamy conditions we were riding that day.
We appreciated the look of the bright yellow logos. When you’re riding an outdated, 7 year old bike, you need all the help you can get at looking cool!
On the track the back hooked up just as you’d expect with a brand new rear tire but the front was significantly better when it came down to overall bike steering.
We’ve only put a handful of rides on the tires but they seem to be holding up quite nicely. If you’re in the market for a new set and don’t have $200 to spend, we would recommend trying these out.
