Better a Maxxis IT rear to be honest. The size is stated on the wall as 120, but they are closer to a 140. The M02 is a perfect fit, we ran 4 bikes all last year including 8 weekend rallies and international event (2000 k) on M02 rear, M16 front, IT rear (not desert, standard) and Metzeler 6 days extreme front.

We used one set of mousses only. I changed mine end of November 13 and replaced with new - I still have the old ones and they are running in an enduro bike with no problems. So whilst the initial cost is expensive, they are damn good value I think.

Might help others to know that an M02 in addition to the Michelin tyres will fit well in the following:

Maxxis IT (120
Pirelli Scorpion XC (mid hard) 140
Metzeler 6 days 140
Pirelli Scorpion Rally 140 (an awesome combination for longevity)

I just completed a long journey (Heart of the West with a little tour of Idaho and the CDR tossed in) - 4260 miles. Michelin Desert front and rear. Michelin bib in the front. Mefo in the rear. The bike was a Husaberg 570.

I kept the speed under 60 on the Tarmac. I ride fairly conservatively. The tires (and mousses) made the journey However, the tires are toast.

I would call the a dual sporting success for the bib mousse.
