Heidenau K60 Scout Rear Tire

A true "50/50" dual sport tire, the Heidenau K60 Scout brings a proven balance of performance on- and off-road. With an improved tread and compound, the Heidenau K60 Scout dual sport tires deliver better cornering stability and wet weather grip on the pavement, while delivering off-road as well.

The "chevron" style tread pattern is similar to full knobby designs which provides lots of open space between the tread blocks to route sand, mud and water from the contact patch while constantly keeping some rubber in contact with the road as the tire rotates.  This tire is a stand-out as it does not sacrifice on-road longevity and adhesion to the pavement for off-road traction.  A difficult feat for any tire to accomplish.

  • TL = Tubeless
  • TT = Tube Type Tire

Please Note: The K60 Scout tread pattern will vary depending on tire size.

Heidenau K60 Been using this product for 3 years now. By far and away the best adventure touring tire on the market. Over 12,000 miles on this last rear tire. Still running the front tire. This is normal for these tires. Excellent product. April 7, 2014
Nice 50/50 tires for dual sports I had these tires installed on my 2007 KLR650, just last week. I only have around 100 miles on them so I haven't pushed them to their limits by any means. I like them and look forward to the miles to come. This is my first set of Heidenau tires; I purchased them because a friend told me that he gets as much as 10,000 miles on his on his R1200GS. I checked reviews and they seemed to be rated well. so we shall see. April 7, 2014
Heidenau K60 After 4000 Miles Well I just finished up a trip from Phoenix to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and hit 4000 miles on these tires. It was 900 road and 200 dirt. They have about another 1000 left in them. I have them installed on a V Strom 1000. From the get go the front has always leaked air 5-8 pounds over a day ride. After this trip it got worse 15 to 20 pounds in 60-100 miles. Functionally they are a good tire for hard pack, gravel and trail. They suck in sand. I had hoped to get 6-8000 out of them for the price. this tire is at the top of the price range. I would expect more. Thi smay be different for other bikes since the design changes from size to size. April 2, 2014
Excellent tread life Put a set of these on a 1200 GS. Have over 7800 miles on a trip to Ak which included both fast pavement and gravel. They did a good job on all surfaces in all weather conditions. March 31, 2014
Bummer the tread was updated I was disappointed to see the 150 18 was updated to look like the 150 17. It would nice if the picture was corrected. March 17, 2014
On 2nd 130/80 17 - Still great!! With 6K miles on my 2013 Triumph Scrambler I've had only Heidenau K60 on. Replaced rear ~3500 miles Front is still on and doing well. Have been looking at Distanzia replacement but something tells me I'll stick with Heidenau. take a look at my vid getting off road with the K60s. March 12, 2014
Super Tenere - 13000 miles .. still going strong 13000 miles on the set and still going strong! Rear shows wear but still has a lot of tread left. I ride 85% on road including a few long distance highway trips. Tire handles well and gives the bike a great look. Will replace will another set. March 10, 2014
I just ordered the tire, I will let you know I just ordered the tire , All I know is what I've heard through the GRAPE Vine. and in customer reviews at revzilla.com. so once I install the tire I'll write more of a review. Great Prices and AWESOME customer support. March 8, 2014

Sort by:
RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Keith L: I choose the Heidenau K60 as a result of many good reviews. As with anything you'll always have some bad reviews and felt I needed to try these myself. I'll soon be leaving for the Arctic Circle and needed a tire that could go the distance and still be acceptable for running the Haul Road. Hoping these fit the bill. I'll gladly give a full review after my return. Apr 15, 2014
Kelly P: After doing a little research I could't find many complaints about the Heidenau products which is reassuring. They are a little expensive but if they deliver as advertised I don't mind spending more. Apr 11, 2014
Samuel T: Supposedly long life, aggressive tread pattern. Apr 10, 2014
Philip N: This will be my third Heidi Scout - 24,000 miles and counting on the first two. I'm so happy with it, I'm just keeping a fresh one on hand from now on - no more comparative shopping every time I need a rear. Apr 8, 2014

Luke L: I'm hoping this tire will have low road noise and better handling on the street compared to my nobbies but I don't want to have to change my tires to go off road. I want the complete tire that will let me ride for 200 miles then cruise straight up a hill side. I like utility. Mar 26, 2014
D I: Needed a 50/50 tire that would last as long if not longer than a standard road tire. Mar 25, 2014
Falcon B: Fantastic tire. Long life and great off road and on road capabilities for my F800GS. Mar 22, 2014
James K: I got over 15,000 miles on my last set of K60's. They are a great 50/50 tire and they do everything great. Last year I put a set of these on before I left for Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, 10,000 miles later i was home and still on the same set of tires. I used them for another 5,000 miles commuting. These are my go to tires for ADV riding on my Tenere. Mar 22, 2014
Terry B: Have used these tires on my bmw gs for a couple of years. Far and away the best product out there. Mar 20, 2014
Patrick A: Prior experience. Very good wearing tire. Predictable both on and off-pavement. It will even work in the sand. We've had no issues on wet pavement unlike some of the reviews. And we have actually done many miles on wet pavement. Mar 19, 2014
John D: Because I can do a 8K mi round trip to Inuvik on same tire Mar 17, 2014

Roger S: I liked the tread pattern for my type of riding. Seems to be above average quality. Time will tell after putting some miles on the tire. Jan 31, 2014
Charles T: Great pattern and dual sport use. Rode 23,000 miles in South and Central America and never had a problem. Got up to 9,000 miles per tire and still had tread. Had to change rather than getting more miles because of logistics. Gripped well on and off pavement. Used on KTM 990 Adventure Jan 30, 2014
Michael M: Great Dual Sport tire for my KLR 650. For an aggressive tread dirt road tire they handled like a road tire on the asphalt. I can drag the foot pegs with theses tires not even trying and never a slip. Great tires and the tread life is long lasting. Jan 29, 2014

Darrin B: Perfect tire for my wife's klr. Confidence inspiring on the loose stuff, and great tread life. Dec 29, 2013
Scott K: Replacing first set with 6,500 miles on them - rear has around 1-2K left on it at best, front good for another 3-4K or so. Work very well on all off road conditions, particularly gravel; and work well on road. Tires have been about 90% road, 10% off road. Had Tourances before - these are a a huge upgrade, particularly off road. Bike is a BMW F650GS Twin - love this bike! Dec 28, 2013

Eric N: 3rd set purchased. 25,000 miles total on first two sets. Absolutely awesome tires both on and off road. Very little to no hum, feels solid in dirt, gravel and wet or dry hardtop. These tires for my '12 BMW G650 GS Sertao are perfection. Nov 30, 2013
John B: A perfect choice for adventure bikes that have to spend a lot of time on the super slab to get to the back country. Nov 25, 2013

A little noisy but well worth it

K R: long lasting 50/50 tyres Nov 16, 2013
Andrew W: This tire has many good reviews on the forums ( adv rider & super tenere forum as well as others). I wanted a tire that is good for both on and off road with excellent wear characteristics. So after much research, I felt these to be the best choice considering the riding that I plan on doing. Nov 12, 2013
mike c: Highly rated tire by experienced adventure riders. I want an exceptional on and off road tire. They cost a little more than others but the claim of getting up to 12K miles make them both high performance and economical. I can't wait to find out ... Nov 11, 2013
Justin P: Great, durable tire that I'm using for dual sport riding. Great off road but if most of your riding is on the street I would recommend something else. Nov 9, 2013
Thomas C: Put about 10,000 miles on the last one, about 2,500 off road Oct 25, 2013

Mark S: I ride a 2011 BMWR1200GS and want to become a bit more off-road oriented. The reviews Ive read from other riders and the descriptive info from Revzilla influenced my choice. I am slightly apprehensive of switching from a radial to bias ply though. Oct 6, 2013
Peter D: Fantastic combination of grip and mileage Oct 3, 2013
Evelio M: Recommendation from other Super Tenere riders because of longevity and performance Oct 2, 2013
Shawn C: I bought a set of these tires for a BMW R1200GSA a few years back. I had a hard time getting the tire beads to set and ended up using some flat fix to keep them up but I found then to handle quite well riding two up on paved and gravel road adventure touring. The tires had about 6K miles and at least 50% tread left when I sold the bike. Sep 25, 2013
F R: Because they are long lasting, great tires! Sep 21, 2013
Robert F: Great tire for my Yamaha Super Tenere, on and off road. No need to look or try any other tire for that bike. Sep 20, 2013

Jeffrey M: Anthony's review! Sep 1, 2013
Andrew O: In the Adventure Rider forums where Revzilla sleeps says the K60 paired with the TKC80 is the best tire combo for 50/50 dual sport riding of my Triumph Tiger 800 XC.

Good wear and handling for on/off road.

Perry O: Excellent dual sport tire. Aug 9, 2013
Piotr S: Best adventure tires out there Aug 9, 2013
A shopper asked: I'm considering the Heidenau K60 Scouts for my Triumph Tiger 800XC. The issue is that in the appropriate size (150/70-15 rear and 90/90-21 front) the K60's are tubeless ["TL" designation in the part number], whereas my rims require innertubes.

My question: Is it OK to run tubeless tires with tubes?
Mar 16, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: You can always run a tube in a tubeless tire, so running the Heidenau K60 Scout on your Tiger with a tube will work fine. Conversely, you cannot run a tube tire without a tube. Mar 21, 2012

KaHOnas: I have done so several times. There's no problem with doing so. I will say, though, that you should NOT go with the thick, super-puncture resistant tubes meant for off-road use only (like motocross, etc). They will hold heat and cause failures at extended highway speeds...or so I've been told. Just a precaution to consider. Oct 8, 2012

JorgeA: Gina, the rear should be 150/70/17 no rim 15... Answering your question... There is not a problem using tubeless tires with inner tubes... The problem is using tube tires in a tubeless rim.... So go ahead and enjoy the k60 scout. I recommend to use heavy duty inner tubes.. So less opportunity to get flat... Oct 29, 2012

Geared: You will find that some will say yes and some will say no. It's like an oil question.
I am of an opinion that yes you can, having done so myself. I know others that have use tubes in a tubeless tire. You can run a search on that as well, tons of topics. Just keep an eye out on a speed rating.

George V: With rims for tube tyres you use a tube - with rims for tubeless tyres you don?t use a tube. These tyres have TÜV approval (and German Transport Ministry approval) for use on the F800GS - you can email Heidenau via their German website to obtain a clearance certificate. Jan 18, 2014
Reply to George Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Andre B.: I have run the Heidenau K60 Scouts on my BMW F800GS, which has the same tire sizes as the Triumph. My BMW also has tubes, I use the Bridgestone tubes myself. They run fine, I have never had any problems. So the answer is yes, you can run these tubeless tires with tubes. Sep 6, 2012

DAOS: I own BMW F800GS and I have to use innertubes because my rims are with lace, I ride Heidenau with innerstubes anyways the tire is tubeless thats just a comment to let you know that you can use the tire 2 ways without a problem.

Keepiton: depends on the rims. Some conversions require spoke hole sealing kits, others don't have sufficient RIM for tubeless sealing. Rim locks can also be an issue. Don't just trust your dealer to know correct answer. TaLK to the rim manufacturer's tech dept. Bad info can be very dangerous. That said, last weekend I saw a Scout on a very well accessorized and obviously dirt ridden Tiger. Didn't notice if it had suck rooms though. The tire is ABSOLUTELY worth investigation!

Perry O: I'm running the K60 Scouts on my KTM 990. Great dual sport tire on and off road. I've ridden them on gravel, rocks, mud, and pavement. They do quite well in all environments with appropriate tire pressure for the conditions. The center strip seems to add smoothness and stability on pavement more than anything. Mine are holding up well after 2000 miles. Aug 19, 2013

Stephen J: There is no central strip, but I would not dismiss it as a viable and friendly on road tire. I have about 3500 miles of on road usage and there is no significant wear in the tire. I have them in my BMW G650GS. Aug 19, 2013

John G: Joe
I've now ridden these tires on my BMW R1200GS for about 10K miles. At first I was very careful on them until I got them scrubbed out sufficiently (because I really enjoy riding very sporty), but to be quite honest, I was amazed at there ability to hold at a very hi lean angle, mostly do to the comment if rider friends following me.
That all being said, I trust my Michlien Anakee 3 more on the road at higher speeds and lean angle, but they're more of a road tire.

Rodney G: Hey Joe W

The tire does great on the street. I have done a track day on a K60's (front and rear). I have gotten hard parts on the ground more than once on them riding my 12GS BMW.
The one thing to be carefull of is you will be close to the traction limit. So there is not a lot of traction remaining for breaking or acceleration. You must be smooth.
Hands down the best tire I have run in my almost 50k miles on my BMW.

Todd K: Joe,
I've had these tires on (mountain twisties) and off road (COBDR) in Colorado and I was impressed with the grip and smoothness. I had TKC80s on my last GS Adventure and they were a handful in the rain. These performed well in the wet as well as dry conditions. I would say that, on my big-bore adventure bike (R1200GSA) they have exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend these tires.

Nelson W: I found the tires extremely durable over 3000 miles of shale and rock off road terrain. However on wet pavement, they are a little slick- so in answer to your question I would not do aggressive canyon runs on this tire. I found this tire a great all round tire-sand, mud and rock. Did not hum on the road. Jan 29, 2014

Carson S: I am not familiar with the fitment for the 2013 model R1200GS, but I will tell you I am very pleased with the performance of the K60 Scout's on my 2009 R1200 GS Adventure. The original stock tires that came with my GSA were great for the road and were not too bad for a RawHyde off-road clinic. The Conti TKC's I replaced them with were great off-road but noisy and had lots of vibration on-road as well as reduced high speed cornering. I've been running K60 Scouts for a year now and find them a very effective balance of on-road manners, off-road grip, and bang for the buck. Good luck! Oct 28, 2013

Larry B: The 2013 Std tire size in a 170/60-17 for the rear and 12/70R19 for the front. the K60 is a 150. I would not be concerned running a 150 in place of the 170 rear. The fronts are the same size. Sep 12, 2013

Don W: I installed a set of K60 Scouts on my 2009 BMW F800GS this year. The rear was a 150/70 17 and the front was a 90/90 21. They replaced some TKC80s which were a little more aggressive. I like these much better on the road. They do well on dry dirt but I have not been in much mud with them. The first front tire had to be returned due to a defect. The handlebars bounced like crazy no matter what I did. The replacement was perfect and they are wearing well. Revzilla took care of it for me. Sep 9, 2013

GSAddictions: The best answer is to go with the factory specified tire sizes and they are designed and engineered to work best with your bike (for the most part, there are several exceptions, however if you knew what those were you wouldn't be asking this question). As for your bike there are 2 F650 models from BMW for 2005 the CS & GS. The CS has a Front 110/70-ZR17 & a Rear 160/60-ZR17 (both tubeless). While the GS has a Front 100/90-19" & a Rear 130/80-17" (both tubed). Best of luck. Mar 31, 2013

RevZilla: No worries, your 2005 BMW f650 GS wears a 100/90-19 on the front and a 130/80-17 on the rear. The Heidenau K60's are offered and in in stock in both sizes you require. Happy Holidays! Dec 21, 2012

A S asked: Second time asking the question about matching tire size to OEM tires..... OEM tire for front is 110/80 ZR 19. Is the 110/80 B19 59T the right replacement in Heidenau tires. And is the 140/80 69T the correct replacement for the 140/80 ZR 17 tire? Not sure what the 59T and 69 T designation is and if it relates to the ZR designation..... Apr 7, 2014

Steven B: The T on the end is the speed rating of 118 mph. This is for sustained running so if you need to go faster than that for hours, then these are not for you. The number before the T is the load rating. The 59 is 536 lbs and the 69 is 716 lbs. Definitely not Z rated but I don't know of any true 50/50 tire that is. Apr 7, 2014

Darryl R: I still don't know. I liked the Anakee 3's I replaced the Heidenaus with better if that helps. I am guessing this would be a better question for adventure rider forum. They seem to know a lot and nail all questions right on the head. Adventure rider is free to join. Apr 8, 2014

A shopper asked: Hey, I've got a 2003 Honda XR 650R that I want to make street legal. Would like to purchase the Heidenau K60 Scout for front and rear. Stock rear is 110/100-18,stock front is 80/100-21. I didn't see the exact size so I'm asking which sizes in the k60 should I buy? Does this tire say street legal on it or If I get inspected by police will they let me pass and get my plate? I would like to go as big as possible on the rear tire...fatter or wider, I like that beefy look! thanx, vince Mar 11, 2014

Perry O: I have 150/70 18 rear, 90/90 21 front, It's a completely street legal dual sport tire. Great wear characteristics with solid on and off road performance. I run them on my KTM 990 and have been extremely happy even whe loaded down - 700 lbs. I ride 60/40 on/off road. I have run tire pressures as low as 18 psi and up to 36 psi depending on road/ terrain conditions.

Not the best muddy tire, but still good in all but the sloppiest conditions.

4200 miles on my set and they hardly look worn.

Hope it helps!

A shopper asked: Does the 130/80/17 have the "center stripe" or the open chevron pattern? May 8, 2013

TheRam: It should be open on the K60, only the 150/70-17 has the center wear strip. I think they go over this on the vid. My XTZ1200 has the strip the one on the KLR650 does not. May 18, 2013

dylanj423: so i looked up this info on heidenau's website the tire im looking at for the super tenere (a 150/70 17inch) has a 69T rating... which means it is rated up to 118mph and a 716lb load...

anyone interested can look up the ratings for all of heidenautires.com ... its pretty straightforward...

there is also a pdf file you can download, not sure why this info isnt on the revzilla site... anyway, im going to try these out on my trip to yellowstone and see how they fare...

A shopper asked: Will the150 fit on a 5.5 inch wide rim? Jul 14, 2012

RevZilla: We can not recommend a 150/70-17 on a 5.5" rear rim. The standard tires size for that would be a 180/55-17, anything smaller may compromise the tire bead. Jul 17, 2012

A S asked: Looking to order the K60 Heidenau for my F700GS BMW. Are the 110/80B 19 59T-TL and 140/80-17 69T-TL sizes the correct size to match my current tires?
