I would go with a 70/30 or 80/20 road/dirt on the rear and a 50/50 on the front. I've tried a few combinations. Right now I'm running a Shinko 705 rear with an 804 front. Got a set of Scorpion Rally that I'm going to mount when these wear out. Got them cheap so when the rear wears out I'll probably go back to the Shinko. I'm riding on both paved and gravel back roads.

Have had them on for about 600 miles now and love them, great in the dry and I definitely have more confidence with them in the wet over the OEM tat, no issues at all. Don't really notice any excessive noise from them either, although i always wear plugs anyway. They are rated and sold as a sport touring tyre with off-road ability with a 70/30 ratio. I haven't been off road with them yet but i'm sure they'll cope well with my requirements, nothing too extreme.

I now have 52k on my 2016 AT , I have tried a lot of different tires from very aggressive knobby tires to street only tires. The one tire that’s the perfect do all tire, continental TK70. This tire has its limits just like any other tire on the market.

I'm running the Shinko 804/805 combo and have a 4 day trip planned at the end of the week. Looking at 70/30 dirt and gravel to pavement. Will give you my impressions when I'm done but I like the Idea of the 804 up front and the 705 in the back.

Just back from 5k mile road trip, Washington to Minnesota on mostly two lanes.

I have been using Continental Trail Attack 2 after the factory original. My riding is 95/5 road/gravel and that tire works well for me, good feel and works without surprises in dry and wet, and especially when I can get 10+k miles on the rear. The center uses a harder compound. Last winter I converted to tubeless using 3M seal and tape. $40 does four tires. No problems over 10K road miles this year. I did fit TPMS long ago. Worth the $50 for peace of mind.

However, on that last trip my rear was not going to get me home. All I could find to fit in Montana last week without waiting was a set of Michelin Anakee Adventure. Fitted expertly by Bike Shack in Bozeman (406 556-4644) for $391.

Round and black, whines more on highway than the Continentals, got me home and maybe they will temp me off road more.

I have installed the Anakee Adventures that came out in January, and like them on the pavement and the gravel where the opportunity has arisen. Taking a 2 day Adventure Off-Road training this weekend, so maybe will have something else to report next week.

just loaded up the Michelin Anakee Wilds. Work really well. They did get a little chewed up on some of hard-sharp rocks we got into but I think they are fine
