CRF250L Tires - A Guide to dual sport tires

The stock tires on the 2013+ Honda CRF250L and 2017+ CRF250L / Rally are one of its weak points. If you are going to do any serious dual sporting, there are definitely better options out there. Here is our CRF250L Tire Guide....

Pirelli MT-21 front tire with Dunlop D606 rear tire

One of the more popular tire setups for the Honda CRF250L and CRF250L Rally is to run a Pirelli MT-21 (size 90/90-21) on the front and a Dunlop D606 (size 120/90-18) on the rear.

The MT-21's work great on the front of the CRF250L and will often go 4000-5000 miles before they need replaced. The D606's work great on the rear of the CRF250L and are best suited for off road use, but their tread compound is engineered for good highway durability and grip as well. You should get around 3000-4000 miles out of one. Both tires are DOT approved.

Check the links below...
  • Front Tire: Pirelli MT 21 Rallycross (size 90/90-21)
  • Rear Tire: Dunlop D606 Dual Sport (size 120/90-18)

    REAR TIRE NOTE: The Dunlop D606 is only available in a 120/90-18 size, which is a relatively tall tire, and will make your CRF250L sit even higher. If you want to stick with the shorter stock 120/80-18 rear tire size, then the Pirelli MT 21 Rallycross is available in that configuration.

    FRONT TIRE NOTE: The Pirelli MT-21 front tire is billed as a 90% off-road / 10% on-road design. If you think you will be riding alot more on the street, you might want to consider a Dunlop D606 Front Tire (size 90/90-21) to match the Dunlop D606 in the rear. They seem to work a little better on the street.

    Michelin Anakee Wild Tires

    If you want a 50/50 tire aimed at street and mild off-road riding, we really like the Michelin Anakee Wild Tires. Not only do these tires provide great performance both on and off road, but they have a longer tread life than more off-road oriented tires, which is great for those long adventure rides.

    Check the links below...
  • Front Tire: Michelin Anakee Wild (size 90/90-21)
  • Rear Tire: Michelin Anakee Wild (size 120/80-18 or 130/80-18)

    Shinko 705 Tires

    If you want an 80% street and 20% trail tire, we really like the Shinko 705. We've used these on a few supermoto's, but they also have sizes that will fit some dual sport 21" front and 18" rear setups. Not only do these tires allow for some mild mannered off-road riding, but the versatile tread pattern offers excellent wet and dry weather adhesion and smooth running on the highway. Tread life is also really good on these.

  • Front Tire: Shinko 705 (size 90/90-21)
  • Rear Tire: Shinko 705 (size 120/80-18)
