Hey guys! What do you think of these tires:

Front:
Michelin Sirac 100/90-18 56T
Rear:
Michelin Anakee 150/70 R 17 69V

I'm mainly concerned about will these sizes fit, because the originals are:
120/70 ZR18
160/60 ZR17
Will I have to raise the fenders or something like that?

The other option is Michelin Pilot Road 2 which are a perfect fit in terms of size and have great reviews, but will have poor performance on offroad.
Thaks!

Are you using the same sizes as well, because there's lots of them. :)
I hope I will get the tires in a week or two and post some pics. :)

Hi.

G;day guys.
Just thought I'd introduce myself, my names Steve and I've got an 07 TDM. It's the third one I've owned. I had a 99 and an 02 model before this one. I found the ADV site a while ago and it's got great info on it. Actually AJ, I've read a lot of your posts.I ended up buyin some Hepco & Becker panniers after your review on the ones you've had. I thought the TDM thread had died on this site to be truthful, so was happy to find some new posts and good info on tires. I'm very interested making my bike a bit more off road.

Cheers Steve

Tires

I had the same tires as AJ untill this afternoon. Doing a Dual Sport ride next week and mounted something a little more like Masterbrewers.



Up front Pirelli MT21 rear tire 110/80-18 with an innertube.



Continental TKC80 150/70-17 Tubeless

Just came back from a short ride, changing directions fast on backroads goes a lot harder. But it is much easier to climb hills and ride down the side of hills with these tires. I'm much less afraid of the front sliding away.
The mud is from my backyard it rained for the last few day's and ah the grass was not pretty to begin with.

My TDM also just turned 40k. Had the 40k valve check done and some needed shimming -- can't remember offhand if it was intake or exhaust -- but anyhow, best to get them checked per the maintenance schedule.
