Anybody used the Vans Cult tire on dirt?

Curious about putting one of these on my rear wheel for DJing. Would like to hear opinions on it’s performance on dirt.

I heard they suck on pretty much everything. They look like they would too. It's not a good design for a tire. I will say they look pretty cool though, so if that matters more than performance, go for it. I'm sure they aren't terrible. You could find worse.

Well too bad our jumps aren’t made out of metal pedals then, maybe they’d work on that surface

The 'holes' in the tread fill up with any little bits of loose dirt you come across and you end up with a tyre that's completely slick.

Not only won't it grip well. From what I hear those tires wear down pretty quick.

Those tires are completely aestethic. The only good thing about the tires is theyre pretty much bidirectional. TBH they seem more like a hypebeast product than anything else.

Don't get 'em. I know people who swear by them, but mainly street riders. I've been on a few bikes with them on, and even with relatively low pressure, I'd say it felt around 50 or 60 PSI, I was still feeling that horrible slickness when carving quarter corners. On dirt, I'd imagine the problems only escalate.

Don't get em. They wear down way too quick. I rode street with them and they were bald after a month and a half
