Supermoto Tires
« on: April 17, 2018, 08:35:04 PM »

Jim, would the Dunlop Alpha-13's make a better Supermoto tire for the track or just utilize the Q3+?
Thanks,

The Alpha in the rear is a 150 but the front is too small.  Dunlop does offer the slicks in a 165 and a 120

I haven't tried one that large on my DRZ400SM, currently using a 150/60-17 on the rear which is one size over stock. Will a 165 fit?

Measure your 150 and let me know what that is.  I have a 165 here to check out.  it is not as wide as it sounds
