Travis in AR – Machine this part was bought for: 1998 KAWASAKI KLR650

Comments On Aug 12, 2014:My review for this tire is that it is more of a dirt tire. I found that it had good traction when I was trekking up this rocky rooty dirt hill that was pretty steep. I had it newly installed and it was well scrubbed in and I hit this hill and took charge of it. The terrain of this hill consisted of some baseball sized rocks and then golf ball sized rocks spread out amongst it. There were roots closer to the top of this hill. This was something of a ATV trail and those were on one rut of the trail while we had leaves in the other rut. There were four of us and I was the only to make it all the way up this hill without any help. Not trying to brag on myself but only of this tire. I will admit that the tread does not last long when used on road more often than dirt (obviously) but I love it enough to buy it again and who can argue with that price? I'd give a 5 star if it lasted longer. Couldn't tell you how many miles but I will tell you that it will be about 6-9 months with pretty often riding and that depends on what I think of the tire when it gets close to changing time. I tend to ride until I cannot ride anymore and then change the tire. What can I say? I ride a KLR.

Poor Choice

Joe in Idaho

Comments On Jul 23, 2014:Thought I'd give the T63 a try. This has been the least impressive tire I've used on the DRZ. I expected MIchelin to be much better. Traction off road is the biggest complaint. Tire wear has also been much fasted than I had hoped. You can make a better choice than this one.

Not Happy with this tire

Andrew in CO – Machine this part was bought for: 2004 YAMAHA WR450F

Comments On Jun 02, 2014:This is probably the least impressed I've ever been with a tire. Absolutely horrible traction off road! Weather braking or accelerating, the rear will instantly give out and slip to the side. It's almost to the point of being dangerous. I've used it on rooty/rocky single track, two-track fire roads, in the desert, and it doesn't seem to work well in any type of terrain except pavement. The only reason I gave this tire two stars is because it does not seem to wear fast. That's the only good thing I can say about it.

Not good for off-road

ROB in BC – Machine this part was bought for: 2009 KTM 450 XC-W

Comments On Apr 02, 2014:I ordered this product in anticipation of using it on-road about 50% and off-road about 50%. When used off-road, it is not very good. It has very limited traction on medium to soft surfaces and due to lack of knobbies on the sidewalls, it's not suitable for for hard cornering off-road.
When on-road, it's fine and gives a fairly smooth ride, but I would not buy it again due to it's lack of traction off-road.
