    tyres trelleborg / metzeler

    Got to get some fresh tyres. So I know about the metzeler 6 day extreme, but in a time long ago trelleborg were standard fit to husqvarna and were a very under rated tyre, they did avsandmaster and a tennmaster which had same treadvpattern ascthe metzeler moto cross enduro ie 4 knob y knob. Are trelleborg available in the uk anymore.

    Probably still get Trelleborg they were excellent tyres but think owned or go under the Mitas brand now  Rolling Eyes  so give them a try but personally would go down the Maxxis route good alround tyre.

    Have a chat with a few more Forumites to see what there using...

    Have another guess nate,
    My first bike was a bsa bantam, first proper mxer was a yamaha mx100 followed by a 125 maico,
    Girling gas shocks were state of the art and preston petty were the only plastic mudguards made.

    Maxxis. Thought that these are cheng chin which were an awful tyre, last a full season racing they were so hard but had f__kall grip, and needed three foot long tyre levers to fit them. Still got a tool called a breezer I had to buy to fit one to my fluff browen ajs

    Check out trellisport , they are the mitas and trellborg dealer , mitas extream 754 I the new trellborg ten master , and the mitas co2 is similar tread pattern  Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad  the co2 is OK for trail riding and will last for ever but the grip ain't the best on wet grass , with a mousse fitted
