California OK Simple Question, MB5?

Recommended Posts

OK let it rip, Fat dude on a 250X with an MB5 on the rear, I f't it at MR because of a bad pressure gauge and a stupid Rider, "that was me". In The Mud at FH, I would hope to do better as I kind of know this place, what PSI would you use? This would be for a Ride on the next week end as I am way to busy for this one. BB Ride On and have a great Ride and give us a good RR after!!

I imagine that you are talking about the IRC M5B rear tire. It's a good mud tire. PSI all depends on the rider. The faster you are the more pressure you need to prevent a pinch flat.

I love the M5B but only use it in the desert since I tried a trials tire for woods riding...

Hey Dude,

The M5B is a great tire. You already know that! My question is.............. what do you pair with it up front?

I had a leaky valve stem, so it didn't matter what PSI I was running. By the end of the day it'd be flat. :smirk:

I finally changed it. Now it holds air!

no more than 12 psi in the rocks and 7-8 if you want the best traction.

Thats for a 140 tire on a 2.5" rim

I use a Pirelli Scorpion Pro on the front, Tirebiter "Dan" turned me on to that tire a few years back and it has been my favorite front tire ever since.:smirk:

Man it was hot as hell that day but the 4 of us "out of 8" made it the whole ride. I remember filling my helmet with that nice cold water and I'm poring it out in that pic. I rode Cow last weekend and yep torched more riders on the same trails.

like the m5b but when if you wear them out like i do the side nobs break off and leave a whole in the tire so the tube is exposed ..

Up yers, ya round eyed devil!

If y'all are looking for the PERFECT all-round front, here's the ticket.. Much better hook up and longer lasting than the Pirelli scorpion.

I use a Pirelli Scorpion Pro on the front, :

+1 Scorpion front and M5B rear has been a winning combo for the

Winter months. Love the M5B when it's really muddy. 12 to 14 psi is about

where I run it.

I just read Humbug's post and I agree, the Moto Z's are nice. Haven't tried the Terrapactor yet.

That last MZ front that I used was the Tracula, which they've discontinued. It was ok but had a

strange wear pattern after a while. All the MZ rears that I've used seemed to last a long time, especially

the HT Enduro. IT Enduro was my favorite rear and I hear they've changed it to be DOT legal.
