Has anyone complied a list of replacement tires for the Scrambler yet?

I've reviewed some highly rated dual-sport tire but it seems very few make an 18" for the front tire or a 180 for the rear tire:crying:

I'm hoping Pirelli will make these for our bike:

Here's a few more I've found. Lots more choices for the rear if you are willing to mount a 170/xx-17

Continental TKC-80 120/90-18 S-Rated
Continental TKC-80 180/55-17 Q-Rated

Pirelli MT90AT Enduro 120/80-18

Shinko 705 Dual Sport Tire 120/80-18

Heidenau K60 Scout 120/90-18

Mitas E-07 Tires 120/80-18

I never cared much for the Pilot Road 3's, and I'm a "Michelin Guy". Fronts cup way too easily.

Wish that Michelin made the Pilot Road "4" in our sizing - that's a great tire.

If I was going to go with a more street (sport touring) oriented tire, it would have to be the Pirelli Angel GT's right now, but I'm sticking with the MT60's.

Can you go bigger then a 180 on the rear rim?

Not safely..

And why would you want to? I'll never understand this fascination with super wide tires - ruins handling.

Lost, the Conti you posted here 120/90-18 is for the rear. People might get confused.
Unfortunately, there are still few manufacturers making a size 18 tire with a more aggressive knobby for the Scrambler. Hopefully they'll come out with more options soon. I'm still waiting.

I am always a bit wary of getting tyre recommendations on an online forum given the wide geographic spread of people and how people use their bikes for different purposes. I’m afraid a Californians opinion that uses a bike on the weekend for long runs isn’t much use to me in wet Ireland with an average mean temp of 10 C especially when I use the bike to commute and need the tyre to keep its temp in stop start traffic. I need a tyre that can grip wet and dry all year round operating between
-5C to 20c. If the mileage is poor I take it as long as the grip is good. In saying that, it still good to read peoples opinions, it might be helpful if people put their location beside their user name.
