    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

    MT43

    After seeing numerous riders run them at dual sports rides and raving about the traction I decided to take the plunge and get one. Running about 8-12psi offroad, I’ve found the MT43 to be outstanding over rocks, roots, hardpack, gravel and surprisingly even sandy conditions. Most types of mud are no problem but when it gets greasy the MT43 packs up and spins. And while traction when climbing is great, going down is far less confidence inspiring. The MT43 definitely demands some finesse with the brakes when tackling steep downhills. With around 500 miles of mostly dirt riding, the wear is what I expected and has plenty of life left. Paired with the Pirelli XCMH on the front.

    A tire for every seat

    Bought this after all the hype. I think there are tires that excel best with certain conditions. That is why there are so many compounds, tread patterns, ect. As a Dual Sport tire, this tire is very good for those who wander off into the more difficult terrain. I ride a 07 KTM 450EXC. If I were to choose a single rear tire for my type of riding, it would be the Pirelli XCMS front and rear.

    A great tire for rocks & roots

    I bought it for great traction on rocky trails and that's exactly what it does. I use it with a Tech Tube foam insert. Buy two 23' long tire spoons http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com/2/9/203/28467/ITEM/BikeMaster-Heavy-Duty-Tire-Iron.aspx and one of these http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com/2/9/203/4449/ITEM/Motion-Pro-16-Tire-Tool.aspx and 3-4 vice grips and you can install it pretty easily with the foam insert.

    This tire does not work like a knobbie tire. It does not tear up the trail, it wont slip on wet surfaces, except deep mud. It will however last three to four times longer than a knobbie and has better traction for dual sport rides that take you on the asphalt. As a rule if you hot dog you will not like this tire. But give it a try!

    In short, outstanding value for a trails tire; I have used this tire on my Dual Sport and now have one mounted on my KTM XC-W 250 for summer conditions and it is outstanding.

    I think I just drank the Cool Aid

    I've only had this tire mounted for a couple of weeks, but I'm beginning to believe the hype. I mounted this tire and tried to hate it. It looks like it belongs on a garden tractor. I've thrown everything I can think of at this tire and I have to say I'm impressed. Deep mud performance is as expected (keep momentum), but otherwise I have been stunned by the traction. UHD tube, two rim locks, and 8 psi keeps you moving forward.

    Pirelli MT-43 Rear Trials Tire

    I love it!!! Great tire for the snotty, rooty, rocky Northwest Terrain. Last one lasted me over 3 years and I ride every weekend. If you're a ham-fisted rider that likes to slide in and out of corners this tire isn't for you. But if you like hooking up in the roots, rocks, and slimy mud found in the Pacific Northwest then look no further.

    MT43

    I had this tire on another bike a few years ago and went back to using a knobby on my new bike because that's what it had. I decided to try it on the new bike and it immediately reminded me of why I loved it. The traction on most surfaces I ride in New England are no match for this tire and it really is amazing at how it makes the whole bike more plush and controllable in the rocks and roots.

    Best possible tire at an affordable price. I love these guys, but you do have to run low tire pressure to make them work. They may not be the best for actual Trials riding.

    Great trials tire, glad I was able to pick this up at such a great price. Thank you Motorcycle-Superstore! For anyone on the fence about the MT43 rear Trials tire, it's quite literally the best tire for the ARIZONA riding we have out here. Which is largely decomposed granite, with washes and clay hard pack. Washes/Sand makes up for the only less than stellar rating I would give the tire as stopping becomes a little bit of an art when backing off a heavy throttle, quick.

    Trials over Knobs

    Tired of watching other Orange bikes pass me and make hillclimbs the first try, decided to give the trials a try. Awesome in almost every way, have only 6 hours on it , only drawback I can find is lack of sidewall traction. Not that big a deal.

    MT 43 Rear Trials Tire

    This is my first trials tire. I have been impressed with the superior traction of this tire as compared to any of the knobby tires I have used in the past. If it continues I may never buy another rear knobby tire.

    Not for a trials bike

    I have had this tire on my trials bike for this season. It works marginal at 0, yes zero PSI. Even with 2 lbs pressure it makes the bike almost useless. I replaced an old MT-43 that was used up and it hooked up better than this new compound.
