Default Mitas tires any good?

Are they better than say Michelin S12s?

I like them and there is a full range just like all brands. The ET-01 trials is IMO the best trials tire for a woods bike. The S12 equivalent is the C10 rear, if I remember. Its at least as good, last S12s I've had were not impressive. Mitas is in the process of rebuilding their US distribution.

They are now my tire of choice, c18 is good for tubliss with a reinforced sidewall, and I find it grips better and lasts longer than bridgestone gritty

They have also just brought out an extreme events tire that was a sellout at romaniacs, doesn't last long but sticks like you-know-what!!

a few years ago here on Germany the Mitas tires where a good alternative to the brands like Michelin, because they are good tires for less money. But now I can buy Michelin tires cheaper than Mitas which makes them not interesting any more for me. compared I would spend my money for good quality like Michelin, Dunlop, Pirelli or Bridgestone.

you are right, but the difference is in the tire and not in the factory wehre it's produced.
But one Mitas tire I would buy again, it is the FIM Enduro tire EF05. I use them because it is one of the only brand having 19" FIM tires and in my opinon are these tires better than Michelin and Metzeler!

Has anyone tried the c-11 front or the c-06 rear I just picked up the set for a good price and I was debating trying them verses selling them. And if anyone has tried them what would you compare them to? The front looks like a Dunlop 752 thanks for any and all help

In my opinion the ten masters is the best rear wheel you can buy. The front is junk(for me anyway) I like scorpion ms in front. I order 4 of these every year and all my buddies ride them as well in the rear.

I have the scorpion set now and I am not thrilled about the front but not let down either. If I can't find any info on these tires ill run them and see what's what but for 50 bucks for the pair I really can't complain much
