    best mitas tyre

    whats the best mitas tyre to go for. Or, is there any other tyre that gives good tyre life when a bit of road work is involved?

    Michelin Ac10 rear only.
    Friends have changed over to a Maxxis road legal mx tyre, not sure of model number etc but really good reports from a few people.

    I'm very happy with my CO2 Stone King - plenty grippy, cheap, lasts for ages! It's road legal but it's not FIM approved though which might matter.

    OK I'm trail riding not racing but I'm not a complete novice any more - what have you got against it Wardy?

    I have CO2 on both my bikes , so wearing them out, Ok in slop, utter shite on wet rock. I have just got a EFO5, which I am told is a much better tyre, lets hope so. also the EFO7 sl is supposed to be excellent with loads of grip.

    I use Maxxis for the front now, as they are cheap and work well for mel,, not road legal, but the plod here dont really cause a problem with them..

    I did put the new comp5 on the front , and these are absolute shite for our terrain here, my advise is DONT bother with these crap tyres also. I now have two part worn Comp 5 which I think will be thrown..
    My Boots are full of Mud !!! (Again)


    (06) Exc 400 - Now gone
    (09) Exc-r 400 - Now gone
    (11) Exc 250 Limited Edition - Now gone
    (13) Exc 500.. happy days!! (tame that beast!!!)

    I had a load of mitas tyres cheap, all different types, the c02 stone king are alright in the dry and general green laning but in the wet or muddy conditions they are shit, i found out of all the mitas tyres the co4 good all rounder, and the e09 tyre was excellent, but you,re nearly in to maxxis/michelin ac10 money.

    they don't grip on rock, gravel,roots or in the wet. the only place they work is in deep mud. On the road they are lethal especially when fairly new.

    so if you ride around a muddy field all the time go for it, if you ride any where else don't bother. They do last though, compound is similar to that on forklift tyres !
