I know the tires I use make me feel more confident on the bike(952 front and rear). Just curious if anyone else feels that way.

A good set of tires make a big difference. I'm sticking with Pirelli's, they do inspire confidence when I ride.

Michelin S-12 on the front all year. On the back I will run anything from a Dunlop 773, Michelin S-12, Dunlop D952, to my most recent available option (thanks to getting an 18" WR wheel) an IRC trials tire. All depends on time of year and where I'll be riding.

Ditto on the 952s both front and rear. They also last a long time even on the road.

I like the Dunlop 756's for where I ride. A 773 rear is awesome in the sand, but not as good for all conditions.

I like what you like. The 952 is a very impressive tire at either end, not only in terms of how well it bites and corners, but in the range of soils it works well in. Wears very well, too. :lol: :confused:

I didn't know you could still get Trelleborgs? I used to use them probably 10 years ago. They where awesome tires. :confused:

they are available from Works Enduro Rider(W.E.R.) ain't cheap though($85)but they last twice as long as any other tire i've ever tried,grip well on about everything wet or dry (they give up a little on dry hardpack) and what really amazes me is that they grip until they are wore slap out:thumbsup: they are now made by Mitas tire co. in czech republic (or sumthin'like that) anyhow they kept the same mold/dies and use the same rubber compounds:thumbsup:

I like the 952's on hard/rocky surfaces, and I like the Michelin MS-3's for soft/muddy surfaces. But if I had to pick one, it would be the MS-3's

Hey regarding that promotion, has anybody done it??

I'm awful leery of giving my credit card info to Pirelli, so that they can ship my tire....almost looks like a bogus website to get credit card info.

It doesn't have that security lock symbol so I wouldn't do it. It's not encrypted.

Yeah, I wanna know for sure because if it's legitimate, I just recently purchased a MT-16 rear, and I qualify to get a Scorpion Pro.

there's been quite a few people from the KTMTalk site that have done it, not to mention a few thousand of street bike tires they've given away in the past year or two.

the second page is where you put in the CC info and it's secure.
