I am trying to find a close equivalent to the Dunlop Trials Universal in size 3.25 x 18. I have checked online but the only thing even remotely close is the Mitas H03 which is really a road tyre. Anyone ?

The Pirelli MT43 is an excellent tyre, my mate put them on his B50T and that’s fine on the road even at speed. (Although being a trials I wouldn’t trust its grip as much as a road tyre..... not yet anyway)


Now let’s all have a beer beerchug

68’ A65 Lightning “clubman”
71’ A65 823 Thunderbolt (undergoing restoration)
67’ D10 sportsman (undergoing restoration)
68’ D14 trials (undergoing transformation)

I could only find the Pirelli MT43 in 4.00 x 18 which is the usual rear size

I’ll find out what the front is. I know it got re laced from a 20” rim to a more commonly found tyres available, 21” rim

What’s the bike?

Look at the Bridgestone Trail Wing range.

Tyres are for my BSA Roughrider. The Trail Wing has a 4.10 x 18 which has a width of 107mm, possibly a little wide for the front but I will measure to see what I can get in. I might still have to use the Mitas unless i can find something more with a block trials tread

Quite a narrow tyre... The Heidenau K67 series are similar to the old Dunlops.

Found a Kenda K262 block trail in 3.00 x 18 which should do the job, hopefully I can get one locally
