    Tires for CB 500 X

    My son's 2014 CB 500 X needs new tires. Currently has Michelin Pilot Road 4s. Very road oriented tire. He is interested in tires that have a bit more off road capable tire. Still mostly road use, but something with a bit more aggressive tread for dirt roads and tame trails.

    Suggestions?

    Many tire makers are offering rebates during their annual "promo" period. Continental/Dunlop/Pirelli are just a few. They should have something in the "90/10" combo you seek. (90% road/10% offroad.)
    Knowledge speaks, wisdom listens.

    Pirelli Scorpion Trail. They were pretty good on the upaved mountain roads in southeastern Arizona.

    I think that is the OEM tire for this bike.

    The Scorpions are not great in loose sand or mud, but did quite well on dirt, packed gravel, and rocky surfaces.
