I have been running the Track Master II on mine. Pretty much a street legal knobbie. Front I have about 5000 miles on it and can put another 3-4k. Rear I get about 2000 before it gets bald. Have yet to have any issues with them on the street.

On the CRF - do like the TMGP guys and run Battlax 16/19 street tires. I've done the same and they stick really well. Colin Edwards uses the slick on the back of his TTBC camp dirt bikes. Kris ran one for 100 miles of dirt / rock in Big Bend last week, no flats, no problems.

You really don't need to swap wheels on the 100, unless you want a disk brake in front.

Nevermind....if half and half get Bridgestone Trailwings for the 100. I have Shinko 705's on my tards and they work pretty well.
