Dual Sport Tires Just wondering what dual sport you think are the best, I ride 90% on the street. I have the Bridgestone 301/302 on there now but Im ready for another set.

Thanks Bob

Depends on your definition of "best". Are you looking for best traction? longevity? price?

Not saying this is the best, but Pirelli MT43 trials tire is DOT rated and what I use for enduros, even FL sand enduros (although not so good for soft fluffy sand like what gets churned up on rural roads). If you were there it did great at the Orange State enduro this past weekend.

No recommendation for a front tire . . . . .

Best,
- c bob

With you riding 90% pavement you need more on the street side of a tire.

Kenda K270 is not a bad choice for the rear and good bang for your buck. I had a K270 on the front and hated it, but on the rear it was fine.

Shinko E-700 maybe also a choice, I have one of these but have not used it yet.

There are others but that is the main ones that I can think of at this time.
