English is a tricky language - just consider the difference between "Free Alcohol" and "Alcohol Free".

I've got a set of Heidenau K60 Scout tyres on mine at the moment, fitted for a long trip to Greece, very pleased with them, they certainly wear well, downsides, they are quite noisy and don't grip as well as pure road tyres in the wet, though to be fair I had a lot of wet weather and the only time a felt a slip, was on the rear on a swift overtake.

How about Conti TKC 70?
60% road : 40% offroad as they say.
Test is not too bad.

Hey just bumping this thread. How are the K60's going?

I have Heidenau Scout K60 tyres now, about 3000 km. Good for everything, at first they felt very nervous in road imperfections in paved roads (especially "grooves" or "rails" in drive direction ...pardon my vocabulary..) In rain I don't do any sudden things on pavement (edit: in rain I drive carefully, avoiding hard braking or accelerating..). In gravel they are good, especially when you take pressure down. I have 2 - 2.2 in front and 2.2 - 2.4 at rear. But they howl. Especially at certain type of gravel road (torpparin asfaltti) what we have a lot here at central Finland. I ride at least 50 % on gravel and wish a bit more longevity from a rear tyre than a proper knobby (had 4 rears last summer...Karoo 3). I fear that I'll trash this tyre in less than 6000 kms, but I guess I am hard on tyres... Ps. I have been driving a lot of rallye special stages (Rally of thousand lakes), very addicting!!!
