Higher in price, but pays for itself if tubeless

Comments On Jan 26, 2016:Running in rough desert conditions tubeless at 8PSI. Corners as good or better than the Dunlop AT81, holds up as good or better than the Bridgestone ED77. For desert and rocky mountain trail conditions I have found the goldilocks tire. The dunlop AT 81 corners real well, but started shearing side knobs after about 10 rides. At best I got 4 months out of it, but it really should have been replaced in about 3 months. I went to the Bridgestone ED77 which lasted all of 11 months before I wore the side knobs down due to friction. While durable the ED77 never really cornered that well even when new.
The Michelin Desert Race is the best of both. It has the same 90/90 profile as the AT81, has the same ability to progressively let go due to staggered side and intermediate lugs, holds on much longer prior to letting go, and all signs point to a 1 year tire. I would go through 3 to 4 AT81s in that time frame, so the $100+ price pays for itself real quick.
Have even run it for about 10 rough desert miles with 0 PSI due to a tubeless setup issue. Pay close attention to the setup/install sequence with the tubeless kits and you shouldn't have that issue. Lesson learned.
This is my go to tire, that all others will be measured by.
