Has anyone who is using the GEAX AKA as a rear, try to reverse the tread for more traction? If so, is the drag noticeable or not enough of a difference when you consider the gains in traction?

I am running it the same direction as my Sagauro and they are extremely fast rolling. Just wondering what sort of traction gains from reversing them.

Reusing this topic since it looks like there are no more topics about this tire.
Has anyone tried to run the 2.2 TNT or Fold model tubeless on ZTR (or other) rims? Any known results?

Oh and also, the actual casing/tread sizes?:)

I rotated my AKA's just for tire wear and found the traction did increase and no noticeable drag.

I wore out my aka (running it for traction) in about 2 months tops. The knobs wear down quicker than any other tire i have tried. I loved the tire though, as it had very good traction.

I had the same results. Good traction on the rear but I tore just about every knob off in the first month. I do ride in rocky desert terrain though. I liked it but not enough to buy another one just to have to replace in another month or so.

I ride out where you ride, or at least i think i do. I did mostly the mcdowells with all the rocks and the concrete like dirt in some parts. The AKA's stuck like glue railing the corners.

I always wanted to try these .Anyone got the actual casing and tread sizes on these[and pressure rim measured on]. Or a comparative size to Saguaro or Race King.
