DUNLOP MX32 FRONT
The MX32 performs best in mud, sand and loam, but,
surprisingly, it doesn’t lose much performance in dry
conditions. Can a tire have too much grip? At 12. 5 psi,
our Intermediate and Pro testers thought so, but our
lower-level riders welcomed the extra grip. It was most
noticeable in ruts. The side knobs would adhere to the
inside of ruts, making the front wheel turn in. Yes,
the MX32 aided in cornering, but the bite was too
inconsistent for our Expert riders. It was an easy fix.
We went up 1 pound of psi to 13. 5. On the track, 1
pound made all the difference in consistency.
DUNLOP MX32 REAR
Any time we leaned the bike, whether under braking
or on the gas, the MX32 tracked exceptionally well.
Straight-line traction was good, but we did feel a slight
wallow under acceleration. The thing the MXA wrecking
crew liked best about the MX32 rear tire was its
versatility. We rode the MX32 in every condition
imaginable, from hardpack to muddy conditions, and it
performed well in all of them. Although the knobs felt
soft and pliable, this tire exceeded our expectations. All
the knobs stayed intact with no breaking or cracking.
We were impressed that a performance-based tire had
this much durability.
