    Pirelli MT43 rear tire, great tire

    By Mike the desert rat

    from Eden, UT

    Comments about Pirelli MT 43 Motorcycle Tire:

    After much diliberation I made the decision to go to a trails tire on my 510 Husky. Wow, what a "great" difference this has made for the tight technical trails I ride. Better traction control for the rocky terrain in Moab, Utah & New Mexico & the tight mountain trails in the Idaho and Nevada mountains.
    I will be changing my son's WR450f to the MT43 also.

    I would highly recommend this tire for your consideration - Mike

    Comments about Pirelli MT 43 Motorcycle Tire:

    These tires hook up well on most everything except loose soil under braking where they tend to plane on top instead of dig in like the Pirelli Mt 16, my other favorite tire. It hooks up well on rocks, roots, hard pack etc. It has a taller profile, and you can run less pressure, so the ride is improved for an old back!

    Great Tire

    Comments about Pirelli MT 43 Motorcycle Tire:

    I first bought this tire for my dual sport 1975 MT250 that gets heavy use on the trail. It's so great off road I had ordered a second one for my 1999 XR250R for trail riding. This tire is excellent.

    Comments about Pirelli MT 43 Motorcycle Tire:

    Using this tire on my WR250R for all around use. 80/20 commuting/trails. For street I have commuted in LA and now Seattle, for trails I have ridden desert sand and rock in SoCal and the wet and muddy roots and rocks of the Pac North West.

    Compared to buddies with same bike on 606s I have as good or better traction in all but DEEP LOOSE sand and mud, but everyone was getting stuck with every sort of tire and bike including KTM setup for woods riding. On roots, rocks and general trails I seemed to have better, much more predictable traction. There is almost zero tire spin, no roosting, little digging, this tire just propels you forward!

    About 3000 miles on rear with good traction still even though worn to about 2mm tread on center line, about 6000 miles on front with even wear, 3mm tread on center line but edge blocks torn and chuncked. Pressures always 12 rear, 13 to 17 front depending on road or rocks. Ran lite locs.

    Can definitely be a challenge to mount. First rear took breaking the bead several times to get it to seat evenly both front and rear. Second rear tire I used a four pound sledge hammer to give focused energy to areas where bead didn't want to move, striking the tread area of the tire. Worked great. Took ounces to balance.

        A:

        Thanks for your question! That information is not listed by the manufacturer. We know this is DOT approved..but we would not be able to confirm if the AMA approved this due to how we are not the AMA and dont have their approval or rule list.

    • Q:

      What is the outer diameter of the 4.0x18 Pirelli MT43? It's a lot taller than my stock tire. This number will help me in selecting proper gearing.

        Thanks for your question. Unfortunately we will not have this size specification available. We suggest checking with Pirelli directly.

      • A:

        I am using this tire on my Super Sherpa KL250. Since this tire is much taller than stock, I had to use a chain with 104 links rather than the stock 102. The other alternative is a 12T front Sprocket.
