    Maxxis 42 Duro Tires

    Quick question. How long do Maxxis tires with the 42 durometer rubber last? Would they compare to a Intense FRO, or different? Just need a general idea.

    Thanks

    Not long at all. Unless you can get some amazing deal on them they aren't worth the money since you'll be replacing them all the damned time.

    The FROs are 50 duro.

    Maxxis SR and ST both wear out very quick. And their knobs chunk off if pushed very hard.

    I've had 42 duro maxxis minion dhf that lasted a long time on the front. It lasted an entire DH race season but the rear minion dhf with the same compound only lasted 1/2 the race season. Best tires bar none in my opinion.

    The rear will only last your a month or two of 3x a week riding. The front will last for quite a while 3-4 months I'd say. I keep the 42a on the front at all times, and for normal riding I have a 60a I run. When race weekend comes along, I throw a 40a on the back and only run it for the weekend, then off it comes. Keep a race tire, and run the 60a for everyday riding. It doesn't hook up nearly as good, but it keeps you on your toes and makes the 40a feel like you're on rails.

    Try the 3C version. It gives you the best of three worlds.

    Yeah, 42a's don't last long at all in back. I blew through a Super Tacky High Roller in about a month. Grippy as hell while it lasted though. They do better up front.

    Hey Jake_69... FRO's 36a? I was under the impression my FRO sticky rubber tires were 50a. If they're 36a, that sucks huge.

    that's the thread count in the casing

    36 threads per inch is a hella coarse weave, 120 and 60 are usually more common
