I have never strayed from Dunlops but im tempted to test some other tires just for kicks, im looking at the Pirelli line, is anyone running these, do they suck or what. Im looking at the MT18 rear.......... :naughty:

I don't know abut the 18, but I had a Pirelli MT44 front and MT16 on the rear on my old WR400. I thought they hooked up really well in the mud and rocks and the 16 wore very well. I wouldn't get the 44 front again because it was too much of a soft terrain tire and if I remember right it chunked off some side knobs after riding in the rocks. I'm definetly going to get another MT16 for my next rear tire.

I agree. I run those on one of my bikes and they hook really nice and hold up well.

Hy,
MT32 Sandcross (front and rear), great tire, but not the cheapest and wear out fast on really hard terrain (rocky). It is still an intermediate.

An other good choice for intermediate tire is the bridgestone combo M401/402.
