Great tires!!!!
These tires rock!!

Iv tried almost every tire and i can honestly say that the desert its are the longest lasting and the best value availiable. Iv raced plenty of enduros, grand prixs and cross country events and i love them. They do not chip in the sharp rocky conditions and like i said before, they take forever to wear. Which comes in handy for a poor racer. People complain about the stiffness of the tire, Just run a few lbs less pressure and they are great. Totally recommend them!!

Plus Dennis Kirk has the best prices out there.

How many plies?
A shopper on Aug 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Don't know how many plies. But I do know that it is the toughest tire you can get for desert type riding. I've burned through at least a half dozen running The Baja. Never had an issue with any of them, and after routes that generally run about 1,200 - 1,600 miles, they still look pretty darn new!
