High Performance Rallycross Rear Tire

The rear tire on your DRZ400 takes the most abuse, its where you engine’s power and the dirt meet. Depending on what type of a rider you are, your tire needs will vary. If you’re mostly trail cruising through rocky trails with your DRZ400, then you don’t want a road or rallycross specific tire. It would work, but you’d wear out the tire and your ride experience would be diminished.

For most riders (including myself), having a different bike for each ride style just isn’t in the budget (sadly). At the same time, I can’t replace my rear tire everytime I do something different. For those of you that don’t know how, motorcycle-superstore.com has a great how to video for replacing your rear tire.

Although JC in the video above makes it look like a piece of cake, you don’t want to change your tire every time you change terrain. That’s where dual-sport tires come in, they’re designed to fulfill both roles. One of the best dual sport tires out there is the Pirelli MT 21 Rallycross. It’s primarily designed to deliver high-performance traction off-road without sacrificing comfort on road miles.

Check out the specs for the Pirelli MT 21 Rallycross rear tire below!

A dual sport tire that has been depended on for a long, long time, the Pirelli MT21 features a very aggressive tread pattern that is tweaked to handle the unpredictable nature of dual sport riding. Hard wearing and yet not compromising off-road traction, the MT21 is one of the few tires out there to work in the dirt and still comfortably tolerate pavement. And as a nice bonus, it’s available in a number of sizes to fit almost every dual sport bike.

  • DOT approved
  • 90% off-road / 10% on-road
  • Provides excellent off-road performance, even over long distances
  • Chosen as one of the most aggressive dual sport tires on the market for two consecutive years by Dirt Bike magazine
  • Designed mainly for off-road use
  • This tire is part of a matching set, see the MT 21 Rallycross Front Tire
