My OEM IRC tires were not quite done yet, but I wanted to try something else. Some of the options (like Kenda K270s) that were recommended by Rally and 250 L riders were not easily available in my neck of the woods so I opted for the Pirellis. I almost went for the Heidenau K60s because of their durability, but the pattern was not “agressive” enough. I’m assuming the Pirellis will wear out much faster than the Heidenaus, but the expense is not that big of a deal. Dual sport tires are relatively cheap compared to street bike rubber.
Sizes: front: 90/90 -21, rear: 120/80 -18
I will update my impressions on the tires once I get some miles with them.
