Just bought a new to me 2010 XT660Z and I am planning a trip to Morocco. I want a tyre that is good for some road use and the gravel/dirt roads I will riding in Morocco. The MITAS EO-9's as recommended by Wizzabren looks a good choice? The tyre size for the XT660Z is 130/80 - 17 but this tyre looks a little wider? I cant quick make out the width in the photo on the tyre sidewall?
Has anyone gone wider than 130, perhaps MITAS dont do a wider tyre anyhow?
Any advice gratefully recieved.
