Metzeler’s value-priced, championship-winning dirt tires have excellent durability, handling, and traction. Metzeler's tread design uses small knobs that are able to penetrate harder soil, combined with paddle-type knob position for good traction on loose soil. The reinforced shoulder knobs give excellent grip under full lean and the soft center area of tire provides good damping properties and feedback. The front tire features widely spaced center knobs for good braking performance. The rear tire uses solid center knobs in a row and intersected knobs in shoulder area for good traction on loose soil or sand. Reinforced shoulder knobs allow controllable slides.

Rear tire

By rbizz

from long island, ny

Comments about Metzeler MC 5 Motorcycle Tire:

I used this tire a couple of times now. I like the traction this tire gives, also side traction. My friends don't like the tire because of all the dirt that goes on them. Also it was easy to install.

Not the best in shallow gravel

By EnduroFan

from Mount Angel, Oregon

Comments about Metzeler MC 5 Motorcycle Tire:

I put a mc5 on the rear of my xr400. I've put about 50 trail miles on it so far. It gives good traction in dirt and hardpack, decent traction in clay, and terrible traction on gravel. The rear wheel will not hook up on gravel unless I very carefully ease on the throttle. Also, braking in gravel is extremely poor. After riding only maybe 8 miles in gravel, my brand new tire had rounded lugs. After riding 35 miles on dirt, they hadn't worn any more at all.
I'll definitely try a different tire when this one wears out.

    Comments about Metzeler MC 5 Motorcycle Tire:

    I put this tire, 80/100-21 MC5, on the front of a built XR250R after reading and hearing some positive comments. I'm riding hard pack roads with rock and gravel, logging roads and grass tracks with varying trails. This tire works very well everywhere for me and after 100 hard miles shows very little sign of wear.
    Have an MC4 rear and very happy with the combo.

        Thanks for your question! A 120-90-18 would be the closest match for that size provided.
