Probeer gerus Kenda Big Block volgende keer vir agter,  goedkoper as TKC en hou langer. :thumleft:

I am quite keen to fit the Pirelli Scorpion Rally onto my AT.  However the rear only comes in a 140... vs the 150 that is oem..  Has anyone fitted these 140 and if so, is there an issue or not with fitting a smaller rear tyre?

No problems fitting Pirelli Scorpion Rally's on my AT. They are awesome offroad, but noisy on tar.
I have done 3,000km on them so far and I really like them!
I'm waiting for the Michelin Anakee Wild to launch in the correct sizes, then I will fit those.

I requested mine to have a knobblie tyre from the showroom and it came with Pirrelli Rally Scorpions, the tyres are very noisy but work very well both on and off the tar..the rear lasted to about 4700 km and at 6500km now the fron still looks good for at least another 3/4000 kms.
I was lucky to get 2 x rear Dunlop Rally Raid D908 rears and fitted that, loved these tyres on my SE and so far so good :thumleft:

I'm in the same boat, ordering my AT on Monday and need offroad tyres for sure. :ricky: :ricky: I'm planning on doing 70% gravel and 30% tar which tyres would be best?

Sounds like a real good option. Will the ride on tar still be acceptable?
