Product Description

  • Please note: Tire sizes vary by ride, please check your current tire and wheel sizes before placing the order. If you have any questions, please call Customer Service at 1-888-676-8853.
  • The Michelin M12XC has set the standard of how motorcycle tires should perform and hold up to the abuse of motocross racing and off-road riding.
  • Michelin designed and constructed the M12XC tires to offer ideal performance on intermediate terrain.
  • An updated rubber compound finds its place in the M12XC tires to improve grip.
  • Michelin continued the upgrades with the M12XC tire by redesigning the tire structure with additional casing ply to improve tread flex which in turn improves feedback, traction and warm-up time.
  • The stiffened sidewalls of the M12XC tire transmit additional feedback with increased lateral rigidity.
  • Featuring massive tread blocks, the Michelin M12 Tire is designed to resist chunking on hard packed surfaces to optimize both performance and wear life.
  • Michelin uses a wide spaced tread pattern on the M12 tires to improve traction in soft conditions.
  • Cross 12 Casting allows the Michelin M12 tire to have maximum traction and steering performance in mixed conditions.
  • Note: The Michelin M12XC tire is sold individually.

Good Tire

Works great on hardpack. It could last a little longer but what tire couldn't.

Great Traction!

I ride in sandy soil with a lot of rocks and roots. I put this tire on my bike a few weeks ago and it has great traction. And it's soft enough to get good traction when climbing rock ledges. I took off one star cause the price seems a little high. But, I gotta admit, I love this tire. I just ordered a matching front tire.

Great tire

I bought a full set of M12XC tires for my WR450 in preparation for the 24 hours of Starvation Ridge race. Went with the M since the track would either be hard or extremely soft and muddy depending on the weather on the day. It ended up being really goopy clay mud. The tire hooked up exceedingly well, even able to loft the front tire when the traction should have been horrible. Not as great for cornering, but again, I was riding on grease. No signs of any wear yet, but there wasn't any friction on the tire. Early on, some sections of the course were grasstrack, and the tire hooked up great there too. Downgraded on ease of installation since it's a tire. It's never all that easy, and won't ever be. Didn't rate highly on durability because I can't say for sure yet, all the miles I've put on it so far were low friction.

My bike after the race, should give an idea of the conditions.

Great tire!

The only rear tire I buy now! Great traction and impressive wear for the size of the lugs. I ride mostly loose singletrack with lots of trees and rocks, rocks, rocks! They are a little tougher to install then other tires I have used but well worth it!

Just like the drive through

Yep, you never quite get what you want at the drive through, and apparently now motosport as well...I ordered a 110/100-18...fully expecting to get a tire that says 110/100-18...however, mine says 130/80-18....if it fits, ill update my review, but bottom line is this..if i order a freaking burger, dont give me a fish sandwich and tell me its the same...

Amazing Tire set

This tire will handle anything you through at it. I ride alot of motocross style track and mountian trails with rock. Its hard to find a tire that will hold up to the torque my 525 SX puts out, but, this tire will grab anything. For the motocross track its solid through the turns and handles the triples and tables very well. For the rocky muddy or dry terrain in the the mountians its very reliable and provides the traction that you need when your climing those stephills. Recommend the set to anyone with every bike. Stay out of the roost my buddies say it hurts.

As far as the tire goes, it does hold up very well. I have raced 4 or 5 hare scrambles and tire shows very little wear. The problem is that I ordered a 110/100/18. What I got was a 130/80/18. I called several times to ensure the tires was the same as a 110/100, and was told it was. The tire did fit my rim (very hard to get on), but I noticed the tire is almost 2" narrower than the 110/100 I took off. I do have some traction/ rear control problems. I guess in the long run I might have to get future tires from the shop so I can ensure I get what I ordered not what is shipped to me.
