    Comments about Pirelli MT 66 - Route Motorcycle Tire:

    Well I've only had it for a week and its fine so far. Grippier than the last tire which was old as all hell. Time will tell how it holds up. I ride a older metric cruiser so I won't be doing any extreme performance tests.

    • Q:

      Can you tell me please what the difference in these 2 Pirelli MT66 tire numbers are.

      130/90-16-67-H-biasply-tubeless
      vs.
      130/90-16-73-H-biasply-reinforced-tubeless

      Specifically, what does the 67 and 73 mean. Also how is the 2nd tire reinforced as compared to the 1st one.

        A:

        Thanks for writing in Reinforced REAR tire is high load rated tire, as compared to other 130/90-16 size tires. The 67& 73 represent the amount of weight the tire can support. 67 is a load rating of 677 pounds (LBS) and 73 is a load rating of 805 LBS.
        If you ride with a passenger and or with luggage, the reinforced tire is ideal.
        The types of materials used and the construction is modified for the higher load limits.
        If you need any additional support, please call Sales 888 339 3888 or 619 623 1660

        A:

        Thanks for the question. The difference is the load index. The first one has a load index "67" or 677 lbs and the second has a load index of "73" or 805 lbs. The second tire is made for a bike or rider that always carries a lot of gear or who always rides two-up.

    • Q:

      My husband put a set of the MT66 on his 1984 Harley Sportster. It's been 1 year and the front is still good but the rear is bald.
      I do ride with him about half of the time and we only ride recreational and probably have about 8000 miles on the tires. Is this a good life span for a tire? He seems to think it wore out to soon.

        Thanks for your question! This would be a good average mileage for your application. If you wanted longer life than this you may look into another style tire. If you need help making a choice please feel free to contact us.

    • Q:

      I bought a 1979 Honda CM400T and it needs a new rear tire. My manual recommends a 4.10S18-4PR. What's on the bike right now is a 130/90-16. I'm trying to figure out what the original tire size is and which tire I should order.

        A:

        Thank you for your question. My research material shows the rear tire on the 1979 CM400T to be a 4.60x 16. The 4.60x16 is equivelent to a 120/90-16 or a 130/90-16.

    • Q:

      I ordered one of these for my '09 VN900 and the invoice says tubeless, yet this wheel requires a tube type. No option for selecting one or the other.
      Is this tire tube/tubeless dependent on application?
      Thanks

        Thanks for your question! Even if it is a tubless tire, you will need to run a tube if you have spoked rims.

        Good question! No, you can run a tube if preferred in a tubeless tire for extra support.

    • Q:

      I need a front tire for my 2003 Concours, the factory says it should be a 120/70-18, this Pirelli MT 66 has 1 listed for the front but only says 3.00-18 blackwall H bias, my wheel is 3.0, will this tire fit correctly & what the heck size is it as far as "120/70", 110/80 or what? I plan on getting the rear tire which is 150/80-16 because I would like a matched pair.

        Thanks for your question. A 3.00-18 is a 90/90-18 tire. A 120/70-18 converts to a 4.25-18.

    • Q:

      Looking for replacement tires for my new '84 Honda CB650SC Nighthawk and was wondering what would be a good size. Also, do the load index have to match with OEM tires? I think OEM tires have a load index of 56 for rear tire but these MT 66 are in the 70's. Thanks!

        Thanks for your question! For the front you will want the size 100/90-19 and the rear is size 130/90-16 and as long as the load rating is greater you are fine.

    • Q:

      I have a 150/90-15 rear tire on my 1995 Kawasaki Vulcan 88 VN1500. Can I up-size to a 170/80-15 on the same rim without any problems? If not, can I up-size to a 160/80-15
      Where does this tire is made?

        Thanks for your question! You could most likely go to a 160/80-15. If you want to go bigger you'll need to measure the clearance in your swingarm.
