Anyone know the best place (cheapest) to buy Pirelli MX32 tires for full size bikes? Any Black Friday deals? Man, tire prices have shot up a lot in the last year or so.

110/90-19 Rear $92.99
80/100-21 Frt $81.88

Those are the prices at RMATVMC for MX32 Mid-Softs.

But...here's an alternative...

Metzeler MC360 Mid-Softs (Metzelers are brought to you by the folks at Pirelli)

110/90-19 Rear $78.99
80/100-21 Frt $70.99

Also at RMATVMC. Those prices are DELIVERED to your door...as I'm reading on their site.

You could go to your local shop and see if they'll beat or match those prices. If you can do that and it's at a shop you've got a good relationship with? Well, that's a good thing.

I ripped a start from Egypt and I was happy about that.

Don't forget, depending on the state, RM now charges tax... Thanks a lot South Dakota angry

Bridgestone Battlecross X30.

80/100-21 Front : $59.88
110/90-19 Rear : $72.88
100/90-19 Rear : $79.88

Usually there is a $20 rebate per tire going on. Right now it doesn't appear to be going on. Maybe after Black Friday?

I run these tires on all my bikes now (125, 450, and Alta MXR) and they are great and wear better than Dunlops.

Yeah, I got something from them last week and was charged tax for the first time. My local shop is checking for me. I haven't ran Metzelers in years, but I'm game to try some. I'm super picky about tires and that is where a large part of my racing money is spent.

I've got a new X30 rear 120/80x19 sitting in my shop now that I got at our banquet last year for winning my class. I'll have to try it, but that thing weighs 1-2 pounds more than the Pirelli. I'm not a Dunlop fan either.

Have you tried the STI Tech 2 Pro yet? I was nothing but Dunlop when the 756 was available then when those went away I switched to Bridgestone 403 now X30 and the M59 front. But with tire prices the way they are now I run the STI Tech 2 Pro. Most dealers around my area retail a 110/90-19 and 80/100-21 for $100. The tire works great and for the price you cant beat it!

I was looking at some the other day at the shop. They look good and for the price I may have to try the rear anyway.

Rock River Yamaha bought out the JGR Pirelli stock. Got 9 Scorpion MX32 mid/soft tires for $385 otd. About $42/ea. It was posted on vital the day they went on sale but was blown off as "old junk dried up tires stay away". Glad it was lol. They had over 250 of them but they are all gone now.

The mid soft front tire is such an icon tread pattern (despite the fact not everyone claims to love the front mid soft - its a widely used tread pattern)

Its the same pattern (had been forever) michelins new starcross 5 soft is.
Personally I like michelins front more a little - but cant figure out why yet - likely a pressure thing

And the “new” maxxis front mcgrath tire is a clone of midsoft pirelli as well

Its a very similar pattern the old 756 was...

IMHO the rear mid soft is the best gripping tire you can buy

their new rear “mid hard” which I feel was a terrible choice of name - originally called mid soft pro - is my go to tire around here. Lasts really well, works awesome when the track gets any shiny spots, and is hardly any different tread pattern than mid soft (i dont know about the differences in carcass)

Their new mid hard front is my shocker pick of front tire - I like it soft or hard terrain - and its tread pattern and the dunlop mx33 look identical almost. Call me crazy - others seem to disagree - but it works for me

i just got back into riding after a 25 year hiatus and put the statcross softs on my 1980 yz250. i have not compared them to any other tires so i really have no idea if they are decent or not, lol.

I second this, Ive been running them on my 125 and 450 and they are great. I found them for around $70 on ebay

I picked up the Pro FIM front and ran it for awhile and really liked it. I think it is the same as the MX32 mid-hard you liked with just a name change. I know they look just alike in pictures. Good tire!

I’ve been running both Pirelli and Metzeler Mid-Soft or Mid-Hards (depending on terrain) & have been VERY happy with all of them. I run Pirelli bibs, too. I store my bikes on a stand at all times and I don’t blast the tire/rim junction with the pressure sprayer.
Here’s this week’s fresh set...

Pirelli mx32 mid soft rear
Best rear there is imho

There is a reason the euros all run them...

Starcross 5 soft is excellent - but Ive noticed it chunks quickly around here - but you cant go wrong with it

That front tire is great - kinda like s12 michelin of old

The mid hard front tire (new one - out for a year now) is much different than any other pirelli
I like it - even in soft - more so in soft than the mid soft go figure.

This is the one I ran that looks like the new mid hard, but the compound could be different. This is no longer on Pirelli's website.

Another vote for the Metzeler mc360, best tire for the money IMO

That looks exactly like the MX32 mid-hard from I got last week and I love it so far. Trying the rear next week to see if it is as good as the front. Even the soft tracks here in NorCal have a hard base

Looks like mid hard to me!

old fim pro was a look alike to mid soft 32 but full diamond knobbies on “middle side” knobs

in any case I really like that tire

I did in the mid-late 2000's. Before the Michelin's we used Dunlop but then the dealer wanted us to try the Michelin tires since he had started carrying them.

Switched and never looked back. It's not that I didn't like the Dunlop's because I did but the Michelin's were a better bang for my buck. They had great durability. I ran the Starcross MH3 which I believe is now the Starcross 5 Medium.
