They are an excellent tire with the only limitation is clay type mud and deep sand.
The bad: Since the knob are close together they pack up with mud and lose traction. The are not as good as big knobbies in sand but acceptable. They are a very tall tire so it will raise you seat height noticeably.
The good: When aired down to 12 to 15 psi they are amazing in almost all terrain. They stick like glue to the trail and for climbing. At speed in a turn you can feel the when front gradually start slipping giving you a little time to react.
When aired to over 20 psi they are quite bouncy offroad.
being winter, i went shopping for these tires.u had the best price/free shipping fast service thanks. i will have them on soon cant wait to test them.thanks.
Pirelli MT43 Pro Trial Rear Tire
what can i say its a sweet tire
I read a ton of reviews on these before I purchased them. I have a 2013 wr250r and the factory trail wings were absolute garbage off road. The track masters that I rode last summer were great but they wore very badly very quickly. I ride a lot of road and even the turnpike pretty regularly, but when I go off the pavement, I go hard. These mt43s do exactly what others said they would. On the road they handle almost as well as a street tire, so far no signs of wear. On the trails they are amazing. Roots, mud, rock, even a few miles on railroad tracks were no match for them. The sand gets a bit questionable as you really wind up surfing the bike but it's sand, I'm not trying to ride though that too much. The front gets very washy on the fine stuff which I figured it would. Honestly, they aren't mx tires, but you'd have a tough time telling when you're ripping through the trails. I highly recommend you try these. My buddy is ordering them for his Ktm 450 after seeing how well they did on my wr. One more thing, the rear is a very tall tire so gear the bike accordingly.
Aggressive but still road worthy. Fatter than I expected. cool look
I got this tire purely for aesthetic purposes. I put this tire on a custom bike im building and it looks amazing!
These tires are beautiful. I only had a chance to use them in the snow so far but am very pleased.
I've been DB for 20 years. I ran knobs forever. I decided to try the MT43 after talking to a few other riders a few years ago. I've run nothing else on my rear tire for 3 plus years.
What I found. Its DOT (street legal.) When its slippery, everyone in the group is sliding. Doesn't matter what your running. The only downfall I found is cornering without a brim. No brim, it doesn't hookup like a knobby will. You need to change your riding style a little. How? I changed to a trails to be more trail friendly. Face it now or later, things are changing. So, instead of accelerating out of corners and locking the rear tire into corners, I've smoothed my throttle control out. The tire is great for technical stuff. Wet technical stuff. It lasts pretty long. I'm a B rider. 54 years old. I'm still moving pretty fast and can sometimes stay up with my faster friends. But its not because of the tire. Its a really good tire and pretty much the only rear tire I run. Oh ya, it worked ok in sand. I don't like sand or ride in the desert, so its not a issue for me. But I suspect, a good knobby will serve riders better in deep sand.
