The Trials tire I chose for the event was the Pirelli MT 43 rear and I already had a new Dunlop for front. The Pirelli is a great choice for the big bike! I will be taking the Dunlop off and mounting a MT 43 on the front.The Dunlop doesn't have a strong enough carcass to hold the bike up well. I ran 14 up front and still dinged a wheel. For the rear I ran the race with 5 psi in the back witch gave me great traction in the rocks! Now for the shocking part, I love it on the high speed stuff also. It's very rare that is a true win/win in life. In the desert it is very predictable and to my surprise it didn't yaw on the rim. It's a great tire choice for this type of riding. I plan on running the Big Bear dual sport ride in June and will be sporting front and rear Pirelli MT 43! This is me riding the grand slab out at Cougar Buttes with 18 psi in the front. Just not enough carcass to hold up to all the weight.
