Goldentyre - UPDATED

Our friend Jan-Willem of the Dutch Brothers is selling Goldentyre road legal dirt track race tyres (that he also races on) and shipping them around Europe.
See the details on the ad above.

Jan-Willem (who, admittedly, is trying to sell them) says:
The Goldentyre went through several development stages, including expensive mould modifications. This under pressure from Chris Carr [7-time AMA champ, who worked on the development]. They came out really good and are certainly on a par with the Maxxis.

UPDATE: From Jan-Willem

These tyres are homologated in Europe and "E" marked.

Load and speed rating 
for the front 130/80-19 (27.0-7.0-19) TT 67H 
for the rear 140/80-19(27.5-7.5-19) TT 71H
Below is a KTM Jan-Willem converted to street/DTX trim with his own design of Superwheels, Dutch Brothers triple clamps, lowered rear suspension (altered linkages) and Golden Tyres.
The conversion was easy to return to standard.

18" available any time soon?

Do you know if they are E or DOT-marked?

Adriaan said...

Street legal means they must be E and/or DOT marked.

KrookStreetRacing said...

DOT doesn't fly with the Swedish authorities. They only accept the E-mark...

That's why I'm asking.

Krook Street, I have asked Jan-Willem. I will update you soon. G

These are E-marked, plus you can get them in the UK from Adventure-Spec.

Great tyres! Will use more intensively on my honda street tracker in spring time but test runs so far are positive on tarmac. KTM and those wheels looks awesome, J-W!!
