You forgot the monster of all offroad tires... the InterCo Tera-Flex

Question

Nice thread here, thanks everyone!

On a similar subject... has anyone tried the Pirelli Scorpion MT-90 _140_ rear tire? I can't find the _150_ and my only option is the 140 (plus it's 40% cheaper). My guess is that it will fit but I don't know if that's enough. Any comments on that?

Thanx people.

Thanx people.
I've tried the 140 on my LC4 640, the tread pattern is much different than the 150 made for the 950/990. The 150 actually works OK for mild offroad use and handles great on pavement, the 140 is mostly on road use IMO. I would not consider the 140 for the 950.

I've been using a rear KINGS TIRE, 5.10-18. With good results. Have not tried the front yet. The rear would mount up better on the narrower SE rim, but I have about 3,000 miles on my ADV rim. Good price and fair life for a 50/50 tire. Please add these to your great tire compairo.

Long distance traveling "50/50" I use the TKC, Local traveling "80% on road" I'm going w/ the KINGS instead of the Scorpion.

Thanks for the write-up

Due to the limited selection of 150-18 dual sport, I am going to try the non-match option. I tried the TKC front (rear wears to quickly) but didn't care for it (too squishy -like a flat). I need to check out the lazertec noted above, but I just ordered a Bridgestone TW41. I know these are not rated to highly by ADV readers but if it's better than the scorp front off-ausphault and not feel squishy I'll be happy.

let ya know

I have Kenda 760 Trackmaster in front.
I love the length of the knobs and the spacing, which allows the tire to bite well in the dirt.



wish there was a 140/18 for the rear but there is not. I use the Teraflex instead, and love them...

i'd like a set of those too, I think you have to go to europe for them though.
Anyone try a 120 maxxis dualmax on the rear of the adventure. I know it should be too narrow but I have a 120 Maxxis dualmaxx and compared to the 140 dunlop 908 rally raid I have here the casing is the same size.
Trying to find a cheaper option. All the 150 tires are crazy expensive in canada.
