Looks like Continental TKC80 is the only knobby choice in R1200GS sizes.
2.50 x 19… 110/80 R 19 front
4.00 x 17… 150/70 R 17 rear

Pirelli MT-21 and Dunlop D606 do not seem to come in those sizes...

true?

I got the Heidenau K60 Scout Dual Sport Enduro for my 2012 GSA !

I told my dealer that I wanted to change tired before I took delivery of my new GSA, so they offered me the Heidenau K60 Scout Dual Sport Enduro.
Dealer told me that they would last longer and would be a good 60/40% offroad. Well so far I have put 500 miles on it.
The web site actually says that they are 70/30% offroad and I agree with that.
I had problem on wet grass, but I guess any tire would. It done great on gravel road and dry dirt road with groves and loose rocks. Have not tried on mud! It is great on HWY, feel confident sharp turning and noise level is only about 30% louder than a road tire.
I hope this helps.
Cheers
David

Mitas E-10

I have been using Mitas E-10's on my Adventure and they're excellent knobbly tyres. They have none of the squirming that I felt uncomfortable with on the TCK80's and have a nice deep tread. They grip normal road surfaces very well indeed and are good enough for the BMW Off Road School in Wales.
