Default SORCCA - KLR tire

Where does SORCCA stand on this tire, myself I think it's scale enough looking to a few 1:1 tires.

Before I send the money though, was hoping to get the opinions of those who are in the know about where they might pass/ban this tires.

In my opinion, it is a scale appearing tire that resembles the Maxxis Race Trep. It also fits with the size rules as well.

I have no issues with it, and it hasn't come up in the committee at all. It's more scale looking than a few others we allow. Order away!

They do meet the size requirments and as mentioned they do resemble the Race Trep.

I will also add, you will not be disappointed with your purchase.

I’ve wondered this before, what about class 1? I’m not sure they had the 4.19 version when this post was made, but now that they have been out a while, I tried doing a search and didn’t find anything. KLR is to represent a cut trep. Cut tires are not allowed in class one. Also, the 4.19 Hyrax(awful looking tire, grabs great but looks terrible). Allowing those tires to compete when a scale tire with a branded side wall that actually looks appropriate isn’t allowed to be run with the same tread pattern seems a little off the point of the scale rules.

For example, a klr is allowed, if someone released a 4.19 trep, they wouldn’t be allowed to cut it for class one, so why is the klr legal?

Hyrax- they just look fawking ugly when surrounded by scale 1:1 branded tires.

So do we get to lightly sipe or groove our class one tires now, or is the tire ban list due to grow a bit?

The performance of the KLRs is disappointing on anything other than perfectly dry rocks...

YMMV

I don’t really care about their performance. I’ve seen them work new vs nearly bald(nearly bald seems to be so much better). I know plenty who love them out where I am, and I don’t see them as a bad tire. Just wondering why they aren’t on the ban list for class 1 or why the rule is still there(aside from the goal of not seeing chopped up tires on everyone’s rig). Just seems like a contradiction to me is all.

Although I’ve looked into trying a set of KLR’s for a C2 build that would look right with cut up tires. Every time I’m in the market for a set of tires, RC4WD has something that looks perfect for my builds.
