Hello, what kind of tires is it recommended to use for TET Italy? Is it necessary to use road legal tires?

The TET stretches across public roads so I think it's a good idea to use road legal tires.
What tires? It depends on weather, bike, riding skills etc

We ride dual sport bikes, and usually we use motocross tires like Mitas C02. We want to go with such tires, but we doubt that would we have any problems with the police?
We planning to ride TET part from the entry point from Slovenia (Resia) till Olivetta San Michele. What is the approximate ratio of asphalt road to off-road can be in this part?
Thank you in advance for answers :)

Generally speaking motocross tires are NOT so good for endure rides .
I have always found that the carcass and more the rubber blend is ok in dry conditions , but under performing in wet or slippery conditions .
not to mention limited life on asphalt .
if your plan is to go till Olivetta , pls consider 50% of asphalt .
you will find it especially on the est section .right when your knobbies are new ....
the police control are not that strict .
but if you are involved in a road accident , then things get serious , this is were they check everything .
your risk is that your insurance might not cover you , due to illegal components on the bike .
I would go with a mid knobbie tire .
something like a Pirelli rally cross MT 21.
or similar .

just my 2 cents .

I am very grateful for your opinion, Speedy 😄. We have chosen Michelin Anakee wild tires, I think the choice is 100%.

I'm traveling section 4 to 1 and back home on the Route des Grandes Alpes soon. So I need good on- and offroad tires. I have chosen Anakee Wild.

I would have taken the Pirelli SCORPION RALLY STR, but unfortunately they don't have a 140/80-18 for my 690 Enduro.
