PIRELLI MT21

3 posts in this topic

Had a MT21 fitted yesterday to my wr400.The bike shop didn't have a 120/80/18 so they fitted a 140/80/18. The tyre fits o.k and clears everything on the bike. I mainly ride hard packed and rocky trails. Does anyone know if this tyres is o.k or will I have problems.I heard all tyres are sized differently. Are the pirelli tires size larger or small compared to other brands like Dunlop. I havn't ridden the bike yet because if the tire is no good I will get them to change it.

Thanks

Agree with fershy. Used to use the MT21 alot, but they do not hook up well in sand or mud. :D They will last a long time. :) My biggest complaint was that they did not hook up well on loose surfaces during braking , they like to slide. :D The up side to this is that this can greatly increase the pucker factor. :D

Running a Dunlop 606 at present. You have to remember that ANY tire is a compromise, you must pick what works best for the conditions you ride in for most occassions. This applies to any motorcycle, or car for that matter.
