Pirelli MT21 (front) review by WRdude

WRdude

Overview

I was running Dunlop 606 tyres but could not justify the cost and was not overly happy with the performance on gravel so decided to try the MT21's for my trip to the south.

With about 5000kms traveled on every type of terrain and surface imaginable i was extremely impressed with them.

The front is only 15% worn at a guess and no punctures to report! :)
