DRZ400S Tires - A Guide To Dual Sport Tires

The stock tires on the Suzuki DRZ400S dual sport are OK for very basic use, but there are definitely much better options out there for serious dual sport riding. Here is our DR-Z400S Tire Guide....


Pirelli MT-21 front tire with Dunlop D606 rear tire

One of the more popular tire setups for the Suzuki DRZ400 dual sport 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 DRZ400S and will often go 4000-5000 miles before they need replaced. The D606's work great on the rear of the DRZ400S. They are best suited for off road use, but their tread compound is engineered for good highway durability and grip. You should get around 2500-3500 miles out of one. Both tires are DOT approved.

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

    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)



    Pirelli MT-43 Trials Tires

    Another popular tire setup for the WR250R is to run Pirelli MT-43 Trials Tires front and rear. These DOT legal tires were designed for trials-type riding and competition, but their excellent performance on hard, wet and dry terrain makes them perfect for dual sport use. They provide long-lasting performance, excellent grip on virtually any type of terrain, and are very affordably priced. One side benefit is a tread pattern that has a minimal impact on soil. They can also be run at very low pressures for optimal grip.

  • Rear Tire: Pirelli MT 43 Trials (Size 4.0-18)
