Mitas E12 and E13 vs metzeler mc360


Recommended Posts

For my trip in Morocco i took off the standard pirelli tires and started looking for a right tire to do the job..

I knew i was going to dela with some really rough terrain down there...so the usual choice of 50/50 or even 70/30 tires was out of the question.

My first choice were the metzeler's mc360 in mid soft compound..

Except some tarmac miles they were absolutly great...until the third day of the trip i realized that their wear was absolutly ridicolus...never in my life before i have destroyed the tires so fast...after 300 miles they were gone...rear tire especialy...the front wasmarginaly better...but the oitside knobs were all gone...

Fortunatly,i had a set of mitas rally tires in the truck...

So i mounted e12 and e13 on my t700...

And boy this tires rocks!!!

Great traction on all surfaces...they can compete with metzelers on hard and soft ground..

And after 1000 miles,they were still in very good condition.

I can highly recomend those tires
