No. I really like my stock tires. In fact, I bought a brand new set. I should mention that I only paid $50 a tire, otherwise I would have probably bought something else since OEM is very expensive. I absolutely loved the stock tires on my 1985 ATC250R, but they were so expensive, I replaced them with a set of Turf Tamers, which also turned turned out to be really good tires. There is no such thing as a perfect tire. They have different tread patterns, sizes, ply ratings, compounds, etc., for a reason. OEM tires are a good general purpose, all around tire. Seems like most people hate them, I have no problems with them, except the stock balloon tires that come on the TRX250EX.
