I had Anakee III's when I bought it used - liked the street handling - hated the noise. Changed to Dunlop Missions - worse street handling, not great on gravel, probably better in wet dirt and mud - less noisy, Changed to Dunlop Mutants - best compromise so far - great on road, wet road, gravel, round rocks - not happy in mud or wet dirt - improved noise, but still bad. Added o-ring dampers to spokes - much improved noise, but still howls a bit on some roads. Trying the cast wheels is mostly to satisfy my engineering curiosity. If I don't find a matching wheel, I'll probably sell the rear that I bought. Anyone want to trade a good left Vario case for a cast rear wheel (2017 gs)?Do you have the Michelin Anakee's on it? They are known to be very noisy. I got rid of them quickly. Sounded like a high-rev bike was riding near me. I changed to the Pirelli Scorpion Trail II on mine - suits my needs well.
