Yep, you read that right. Metzeler’s all new MC 360 Tires are both DOT approved, meaning completely legal to use on the street, while also being designed for use as a full performance motocross tire with a 16.5mm tread depth. Doug Schopinsky of Metzeler stopped by the Dirt Rider shop to show us the new tires, both the Mid-Soft and Mid-Hard tread pattern. According to Doug, a lot of the other DOT full knobbie tires on the market use very hard, plastic-like compounds to pass the strict, high speed test that allows a tire to be street legal. Yet the MC 360s have a unique proprietary construction that allows them to use a more pliable, normal dirt tire compound. Check out this video explaining the MC 360 in both soft and hard tread patterns.
