Dual sport rear tire

8 posts in this topic

I ride mostly on the road, with some highway too.

Any suggestion for a good rear dual sport tire?

In the past I had a great experience with a Michelin T66X on a BMW F650.

I'm happy with my metzler sahara enduro's. Good stick on the road OK on dry dirt not great in the mud.

Take a look at the Avon Gripster, I can't say enough about the handling of this tire on the street, and it works pretty well in the dirt. Just google it and read reviews.
