Michelin S12 XC Rear Tire

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 history of Michelin's involvement in off road racing and the long history of the S12 XC dirt bike tire makes for a competition ready tire that you can trust to get you to the finish line.
  • The Michelin S12 XC tire was strictly designed for traction in soft terrain. The newest S12 XC tire takes it a step further and improved the durability in conjunction with better grip. The reformulated rubber mixture on the S12 XC improves durability by at least 25% from previous Michelin tires.
  • A championship tire needs to transmit feedback efficiently and Michelin improved this on the S12 XC with a redesigned casing by adding a ply and adding thickness to the sidewalls in the bead area.
  • Maintaining the proven tread pattern was exactly what Michelin did with the S12 XC tire. The shoulder pattern promotes cornering stability. Keeping the lugs clear from mud build up is accomplished with the S12 XC tires unique 45 knobs.
  • Note: the Michelin S12 XC tire is sold individually.
  • Metric Size: 120/90-18.

Excellent tire

I ride XC all across the mid South. This tire is the best I have found for most conditions. These tires do run small. Be sure of sizing before you order.

Good in Florida sand

My two favorite sand tires are this (s12XC) and the Maxxis MS. The Maxxis has better straight line hook up, but I think the S12 is better for Harescrambles as the side traction is better on roots.

Disappointed

I love Michelins, but this tire was horribly. I have this tire on my 2011 YZ250 F, Six motos on a primarily sand track, and nearly all the side knobbies are chuncked off. The center knobs look fine. I'm going back to a MS or MH 3.

Excellent Choice for Mud and Sloppy Conditions

Was running a M12 XC rear and S12 in the front. Decided that rear M12 tire was not the best suited for riding in muddy, slippery and gnarly singletrack conditions. The difference between the M12 and the S12 is AMAZING. The S12 tire performs as advertised. The side bite and the predictability of this tire was outstanding.

Yes buy them.

this is my 9th michelin s12 xc that i have bought, would never use anything else, no other tire lasts as long and resists chunking as well.

Not impressed

Ran this tire on my 450 with good results. The 100-90-19 is way different though. Knobs are much smaller and chunked off bad on my 250f. In thick mud it does not hook up at all. In hardpack it shreads knobs. In sand it is good as long as it is prepped and firm though there are way better tires for a prepped track.

Whats the difference between the s12 and the s12 xc?
MotoSport Staff
Over 4 years ago Location: Tualatin
all the differences/improvements are listed in the item description. I would say the biggest difference is that Michelin claims to have increased the durability by 25% over the original S12
