Need help with tire choice!!

Recommended Posts

I went out to the mx track yesterday with my '03 yz125 and the bike was really loose and pushing all over and these stock tires are not cutting it(they are not in new condition). So I am thinking about starcross ms3 front and rear. Will this be a good tire and do they hook up good. Give me some recomendations. Thnks.

i say starcrosses, best tire i have worked with so far. and i have changed alot of tires. they have excellent knobbies and they last long too. get the MH3's. Not too exspensive either. or the MS3's depending on the condition.

Damn, so many tire choices. I was going to leave the stock rear Dunlop 756 on my YZ250 and just replace the front with either a Michelin MH-3 or Bridgestone 401. Now I'm thinking to go with either the Michelins or Bridgestones for both front and rear. I think I'm leaning towards the Michelins.
