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.
Not a bad rear tyre , but don't use one on the front( not good in deep sand and I assume that would be expected in Morocco)
I have used a 130/80 by 18 on my DRZ400. My mates have them on DR650s with good results. They are a hard wearing tyre and you should expect 4-6000 km.
