Dunlop Tires

I have KT 857 on my 4-wheeler now and as far and the ride and traction during trail riding they are great tires. I am just curious if i should go with a more aggresive tread like the KT705. My ? is which would be the better ride and get more traction in the trails.. The 857 has a bunch of knobs on it and overall does good and the 705 has the V design in the middle is self cleaning and supposed to be good traction too and im just hoping someone here has had them. Thanks for your time.

And im pretty sure both tires are considered all-terrain but the 705 would have a better mud rating. But im worried about all round traction on different kinds of terrain.

HMMM. I dont know much about 4X4 tires. I would have to say, it all depends on the type of riding you will be doing. Just take that into consideration.

oh and it's a 2x4 4-wheeler will be riding on a little bit of everything but mainly dirt and or creeks (so some mud). Im in the mtns of southwest VA. So if u get a chance to see the tread on the tires maybe u can see my little dilemma lol. Thanks again man im not trying to be a bother just want to get the right tires for me and looking for ppls opinions.

You should post pictures of both the tires that would help alot. I run ITP holeshots on my warrior but that's more of a sport quad tire and doesn't do anything for you in mud. Just post a picture then we can help ya more.

the 705 is actually a match to my front tires. I just know the 857 has good traction that i dont want to miss out on. Im starting to think the 705 should be just as good traction and maybe better in mud. What u think? Thanks for ur time. (
(the 857 is on left and the 705 is on right.)

I like the 705's the best. they look like they would not get clogged up as bad as the other tire.
