Tires work great for the street, gravel roads, dirt roads, or light trail riding. So you will want to think about what type of riding you have in mind.

Exceptional Quality for the price
I have had these about 10 days. I have put 400 miles on them so far. 100 miles of street the rest is gravel and 2 track. They are wearing well, no chipping or strange patterns. They are a more round profile than what I had before. It gives them a good ride on the street, especially for a knobby tire. They tend to want to slide out a bit in the gravel under lower throttle. I find that if you get on the throttle they become more controllable. They are not quite a full dirt tire but are a great compromise. I am running 18 front 15 rear. They would probably do better in the dirt if you went down a little more, but I am on and off the pavement too often to go any lower.
DRZ 400 heavily modified
I ordered these for my son's dual sport (07 DRZ 400S) and he loves them from the first ride. His stock tires were shot, but the best that could be said for them was they were round and held air. These new michelin's are a great balance of a decent street tire and far more dirt worthy. He rides a lot in a small town (school, store etc) but mostly to get to the trails. The first comment he made was... "I can ride so much more confidently with this more aggressive knob style pattern, but it's also fairly smooth on the pavement". Now only question is... how long do they last?
Have ridden about 100miles so far mostly in the dirt. I couldn't tell the difference in my full knobbies vs these. On the road the rear is wearing a bit but heavy acceleration will do that on this type of tire so no fault of the tire (KTM 500 EXC). So far, so good.
I bought my dual sport with knobby's so loud, I couldn't hear after a ride. Sure, they were great in the dirt, but... So I went with a more streetable tore and suffered off road (translate wrecked) These tires are the perfect blend of on/off road tire for the money. I will run them bald and buy another pair!
So far so good. Great looking tire and awesome performance. I'm very confident taking tight fast turns on the pavement. I've only tested it off road on fire roads and they are far better than the stock Trailwings on my DRZ400. Can't wait to get more miles on em!
Installed these tires on 00 XR400R. so far they seem to ride smooth at low to mid speeds on the street. It grips corners very well .
I have the Yamaha XT225 dual sport. This is the perfect tire for those of us that spend 50% of our time on road and 50% of our time off road. This tire combo is very affordable, and being Michelin is high quality.
This is the 1st set of dual sport tires that I have used that I did not want to take off right away. Great grip in the dirt, street vibes not too bad. Very pleased.
