    Mitas tyres on CT

    As per title any of you has ever mounted the Touring Force tyres (or any other Mitas product) on the CT?

    I have off road Mitas tyres on a Yamaha WR450F and they are OK.

    Would like to try their Road products too, any comment/impression?

    Can not comment on the "touring force" tyre... but their predecessor, - the "sport force" tyres were recalled and taken off the market due to bulging spots appearing at high speed in 2014. ( the touring force was hastily launched after that). It kind of killed their reputation over this side of the world!
    I know a few guys that use the off road versions and have good things to say about them, but I would not be inclined to use their road range of tyres for high speed.

    Cheers
    Tom

    Thanks Tom.

    I shall rather stick to the Pirelli products I am currently using on my road bikes then.

    I am using Mitas E07+ on my CT with great success. They are actually really praised as a good 50/50 tyre, they really offer me a good grip on pavement and are pretty great on non-paved, with the exception of sticky mud sections, I feel it takes a bit too much for it to discharge and give me traction again, but probably it's normal as it's not a knobby. I will definitely repurchase them in the future.

    On the other hand, I have no experience with their sport-touring offering. As you concluded, you are probably better off with Michelin, and Pirelli.

    Yes, CiprianStoica,
    I think this is how Mitas are successful, they make a good range of off road type tyre but are not known for a sports tyre.
    I think it is reflected in their 4 wheel applications too IMO, I see their tyres on tractors, teleporters, wheel loaders etc, but I don't see them on cars, certainly not this side of the world.
    Seem to offer a good low cost alternative to the big 6 brands in the off road/ low speed department

    Tom
