Can I fit an E07 back tyre on my DRZ?
« on: October 23, 2012, 09:56:26 pm »
I have a Mitas E07 on the front and need to replace my back tyre now. I'd like to get an E07 for the back as well, but will it fit? has anyone put one on recently? i was told it won't fit, but saw another thread suggesting it as a good choice for the back?
What's up with those hedgehogs anyway? Whay can't they just share the hedge?

130 would fit, but a 140 might be too wide.

I have the 130 E09 on (15000km) As far as I know the 130 E07 is not imported (Well was not when I fitted the E09).If that they are now available please let us know - I would prefer the E07 as it has better sealed road capabilities (wet tar). If not available I will just get the E09 again. ;D

Hav a buddy with a 140 e07 on the back of a DRZ,  he recons one of the best tyres he has used on the bike, great on the dirt fair on the road, but all round very good, I will be putting one on the back of my DRZ as soon as I run the tyre on the back smooth ( maxxis M6006) that was not very good on the gravel.
