My riding partner uses the MT16 on the rear of his KTM520 exclusively, claiming they work really well and last longer than almost anything else. He's been telling me I should try one for quite a few years now. Being a hardcore Dunlop guy, I have thought the MT16 was too old school to even consider. But since I usually go through 4+ sets of tires per year I finally gave in and decided to try one to see if it might last a bit longer as he said. As much as I hate to admit it, I have found that the MT16 does work quite well, and without a doubt lasts much longer. It sure surprised me.
mounted with the proper amount of difficulty, showing the quality construction of the tire, fit properly, even with heavy duty tube ( Im sick of flats ) and looks Awesome !! Will not run it until next season, but Im still impressed just by the reviews alone.... That many people with positive reviews cant be wrong.......
It is a good tire with a UHD tube, but it feels much better with the TUBliss insert. The full circumference support of the sidewall helps eliminate the tire roll through hard turns. Also, being able to run the tire at 10 psi (or less) really lets it soak up small objects in the trail.
Stability: I found it to wobble at low speed. I would suspect a problem in the manufacturing. I wasn't ever able to true the tire.
Cornering: I was hesitant to push it with the above mentioned wobble.
I haven't been in any wet situations so have no comment on that.
I also haven't had the tire long enough to comment on tread life.
