Product Information

Pirelli MT 43 Trials Rear Tire

A kind of word-of-mouth success story, the Pirelli MT 43 has slowly become one of the most sought after tire for dual sport and single track riding. Able to grip where knobbies break loose, the MT 43 is unparalleled over rocks, roots and up steep climbs. Add in the fact that the MT 43 is fully street legal and still works in the mud and sand and this becomes a win-win for the hardcore enduro rider.
  • A tire for use on trials bikes but also suitable for road use
  • Great performance on hard, wet and dry terrain or indoor events
  • Reinforced bias-ply carcass reduces deformation and maximizes footprint on every type of terrain
  • Unique tread pattern geometry, complementing the tire structure and its application
  • DOT Approved

Trails tires rock for enduro/scramble woods riding

Run 9 to 10 pounds of pressure and you won't believe how much better your bike takes hits...and this thing hooks up on almost everything. I have run Perelli MT16s in the past, but will never run anything else. This tire hooks up!

DOT Trials tires

I mounted these tires on a street legal DRZ 250. They work very well on the road and they perform good in most all off-road conditions where I ride, except in deep mud. Because of the design of this tire I am able to run approx. 10-12psi when off road with no problems.

Pirelli - MT 43 Trials Rear Tire

Best tire I've ever had. Lasts forever, doesn't dig up the trail, sticks to everything. Had heard bad things about trials tires but non apply to this tire. Good side walls make it stand tall and straight on pavement. Thick profile helps prevent pinch flats. Rangers encourage. Rumor is it'll outlast nobbies 3-4/1.

MT 43 Performance on KTM 450 EXC

Been riding in Utah for the last week and found that this tire is great for trail riding and friendly to the trail system. Many of our M/C club’s top riders are switching to trials tires for riding enduros and find they last over 1000 miles, they are bargain priced and work better than knobby tires in the mountain and desert trails.

DUDE THESE ARE BETTER THAN ANY KNOBBY FOR ANY WOODS RIDING OR ENDURO

XR 650R 2004 street legal. have ran every knobby dual purpose tire these are better... only if you want long life and traction down to the last little nubbin. Quick on street!!! and AWESOME traction in the wet tarmac or dirt. both breaking and acceleration are incredible. I think this bike is a true tester of a good tire. just deep mud or sand give it a 3 of 5

MT43

It's been bugging me for a long time to try a trials tire, I wish I would have got one a lot sooner. I ride on a lot of rocky trails and there is no comparison with a knobby, this thing is like having suction cups on the tire. The only thing I don't like about it is going downhill on loose stuff. Excellent tire!!

Hooked up!

Just switched to the Trials Tire on my 390 Husaberg. Running it with the Tubeless System and am really impressed. Started it at 12 psi and dropped it during the ride to 10 then settled on 8 psi. Besides the awesome traction, it really softened up the first part of my suspension travel. Others say that a trials tire is best for guys that stay hooked up, rather than the back it in and roost out style. I had the Michelin Trials tire on an old bike. Great traction, but the sidewalls wobbled too much. The Pirelli eliminates that feeling with its stiffer sidewalls. Excited to see if I get the great mileage others are talking about.

Dual Sport Tire

Greatest tire I have found for durability and performance. It’s like having velcro on your tire.

Excellent Tire!

I ride a KTM 525EXC mostly in the woods, but have recently started riding weekend type dualsport rides. This tire slides around a lot in the fine dry sand (still ride-able though) but if there’s anything to hook up on it’ll find it. In the rocks it’s a miracle! I can start from a dead stop on loose rocky uphills and just motor right up w/ almost no wheel spin, while my buddies are all hammering the throttle just to get their bikes to move a few feet. Does ok even in the mud, as long as it’s wet, not sticky. Sticky mud packs the tire, but then again most tires have this problem. Everyone that sees the trials tire on my dirt bike cautions me about throwing the knobs at speeds over 40mph. I guess this is a problem with other tires, but not the MT43. I’ve sustained speeds on the asphalt w/o any problems. It’s taken a beating - including the massive rock gardens on the CNT by Talimena / Clayton OK, wheelies, running down hard packed rock inbedded dirt roads and flat-tracking it around the corners spinning the rear hard, etc. Knobs look awesome still. Tire is 50% worn (50% of knobs worn down). The act of flat tracking it down the dirt roads with constant spinning wore the knobs down a little quickly, but it also sharpened them again and the tire is gripping as good as new. VERY HAPPY. Can’t go wrong especially for the price. Will buy again, and again, and again.

KTM 300

I bought my first trials tire for my KTM 300 after seeing and talking to people using them, the tire seems to hook up better than any knob tire I have used in the past 25 years of riding, the only possible down fall seems to be braking, now using a little more front to keep the rear from sliding. Great wear, looks like you can get a whole season out of one tire!

Great tire

Its fun being the wierdo on the trail with trials rubber. The fact that they find traction in the darndest places is also great. This thing lasts forever and has been helping me with my traction control. It seems to hold traction longer but once traction is broken, it is non-existent. Gotta get off the brakes sooner and back on the throttle! I'm hooked on these tires, just don't ride them flat for any distance. It will destroy the bead.

I have only had a couple of rides on this tire but I am very impressed with the traction. It was a fairly muddy day and the tire hooks up great.

Tough Tire

Put this tire on my XC450F because I ride in some of the toughest and rockiest conditions around. The conditions I ride in only allow me to get about 120-140 miles out of a Maxxis Desert IT 18x120x80. I'm getting over 200 miles on this tire. It works even as the tread starts tearing off. This tire and the Dunlop 803 trials tire are great tires for the desert.

I may never buy another knobby again. I run this with the Tubeless system at 6psi and it’s awesome. It works best when you are smooth on the power... not so good when spinning. In the rocky woods I don’t see how you could beat it.
