i'm looking for a set of tires, my v star classic 650 has tube type tires , most tires i have looked at are tubeless is the bead the same. just have to put in a tube ?
thomas l on May 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Thomas, thanks for the question! You can run tubes on tubeless tires as long as the rim is an MT-type rim. If it is marked as a WM-type rim you can only fit tubed tires on it.

Do the mt66 tire come with raised white lettering?
Randy M on Jan 24, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Randy M.,
The Pirelli MT Route 66 tire does not come with raised white lettering. I do recall when I was shopping for my tires, reading a customer review who wrote about marking or painting in the lettering that exists on the tires. Incidentally, I'm very pleased with the look and performance of the set of Pirelli MT Route 66's I have on my Suzuki C 90. It's a great tire for the money! S.M. Johnson
Is the 170/80 15 compatible with a tube?
A shopper on Aug 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for the question. Using an inner tube in a tubeless tire can possible create chaffing and will also reduce the flexibility of a tubeless tire. If you have the ability to, purchase wheel strips like Rana mentioned to minimize the possibilities of this happening. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you by contacting us by email at [email protected], Live Chat or by phone toll-free at 1-888-339-3888. We are always more than happy to help.

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.
Doug on Oct 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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
I have 180/70-15 tire and have 3/4 in. clearance from belt drive gaurd , can I put a wider tire and what size will work??
Shane on Mar 18, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Good question! When going up in tire size the most usually recommended is a max of 10mm wider, being in your case for example a 190/70-15. You will have to take some measurements to see if you can accomodate a wider tire. It will increase the width by 5mms on each side of the tire and your rear swing arm.
why are these tires so inexpensive compared to other popular brand tires such as Metezler & Dunlop?
A shopper on Sep 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for the question. Reviews are really good on this tire, performance and longevity are two of the most used descriptions for the tire. Really not sure why the price is so competitive but the tire has definitely proven itself to be a very high quality tire.

Will this fit my 2011HD Fst Bob?
A shopper on Jun 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for the question. According to our records, a 2011 Harley Davidson Fat Bob calls for a 130/90-16 front tire and a 180/70-16 rear tire. The Pirelli MT 66 Route Motorcycle tire is available in the exact same front size, but not the rear size. However, the 150/80-16 should work for you just fine. The aspect ratio conversion of both of these tires is very similar, almost identical, actually.

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.
Barbara on Jan 29, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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.
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.
Harry Honda on Dec 12, 2012
BEST ANSWER: 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. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you by contacting us by email at [email protected], Live Chat or by phone toll free at 888-339-3888. We are more than happy to help.
The 180/70 say's it's a tubeless tire but the stock tires I have are tubed is there going to be a problem useing them?
Steve on Jul 8, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your Question! You would have no problem running tubes in a tubeless tire.
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
NMFORDMAN on Jun 13, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! Even if it is a tubless tire, you will need to run a tube if you have spoked rims.
Your website lists two tires of the same size at two different prices...100/90-19 for $65 and for $72. They both have the same speed rating. Which is correct?
null on Jun 11, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! One is a tube-type tire with an S speed rating, and one is a tubeless with an H speed rating.
I am planning on putting the MT-66 100/90/19 on the front of my 2009 Yamaha 650 V-Star Custom. My question, is there any problems using a tubeless type tire with a tube?
LUKE on Jun 7, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Good question! No, you can run a tube if preferred in a tubeless tire for extra support.
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.
bill on May 4, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question. A 3.00-18 is a 90/90-18 tire. A 120/70-18 converts to a 4.25-18.
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!
Jorge on Apr 25, 2012
BEST ANSWER: 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.
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?
Ganot on Apr 10, 2012
BEST ANSWER: 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.
what is the actual size of mt 90-b16 tire?
null on Mar 18, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! 130-90-16'' is the metric conversion for MT-90B-16''
I'm interested in buying a Pirelli MT 66 rear tire for my 1995 Harley Davidson Road King. The brand I'm currently running has a load rating of 77 and the Pirelli 140/90 16 Blackwall has a load rating of 71. In simple terms what is the difference in the 77 and 71 load rating? Thank you!
null on Mar 15, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! 77 is 908 lbs and 71 is 761 lbs.
My 83 Goldwing calls for 120/90-18 for the front. Will this tire work on the front the list says it is for the rear.
null on Mar 10, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! It is not safe to put a rear tire on the front.
I have a '72 Honda CB-175 K6. Which fitment will replace the 2.75-18 front and 3.00-18 rear properly?
Brian on Mar 6, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for writing in! an 80/90-18 will replace the front and a 90/90-18 will replace the rear. This tire may not have your specific fitments.
In the description it says tube type, I am assuming this can be used for tubeless application as well?? I have a ME880 90/90-21 on there now that i just put on 2k miles ago and its all dry rotted almost din't pass inspection :( $100 down the drain. However, I need to replace the rear now so I was hoping to replace both.

Thanks
Vito
Vito on Feb 16, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! Yes you can use this with or without a tube.
I have a 1980 Suzuki 850 G and it's size does not apear anymore.

Bayou_TK on Nov 7, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! this would convert to a 120/90-16.

Great tires for the price. Super smooth ride and handle awesome. They also grip well to wet road. Only had them for about 2 weeks, but absolutely love them so far, I hope to get good life out them.

For the money these tires can't be beat
I use Pirelli tires on my car and my motorcycle because i get the longest tire life out if these tires I've tried just about all the major brands and these are by far the best tires that work for me, great traction and long tread life , and the price is right, I've paid more and got less so your best bet is go with Pirelli

Longest lasting tires ever
Best tires I have ever used on my gold wings. I have bought them 4 different times now and fantastic.
Guys talk they get 7k miles 9k miles or even 10k on their tires.
These tires are easy 15k+ tires. I sold a Goldwing with these tires with 18k and guy looked at the tires and said “tires look good”.
Try them you will love the way they hold the road and mileage.
