10" tire does great with a 250lb rider! Kind of a pain it install, but worth it.

Ive had this tire for about 6 months now and i love it. Hooks up exceptionally in most conditions, spins a little in the slick stuff but what doesnt? I still have all my knobbies and its been through 6 harescrambles and multiple track rides. I would have replaced two dunlops before I will need to replace this one.
These are the best tires made. Ive had every kind of tire out there and these are my favorite. They last a very long time and hook up every bit as good as the more advertised Dunlop MX51 and MX52.
This tire has been my go to rear tire for a couple years now. I race motocross a couple times a month and it holds up very well for several races. I prefer the wear and performance over Dunlop and Bridgestone rear tires. I am still a die hard Bridgestone front tire user!
THIS TIRE IS THE BEST TIRE FOR A POOR UNSPONSORED RIDER LIKE ME. NEW IT IS NOT AS GOOD HOOKUP WISE AS SOME OTHER PREMIUM TIRES BUT THEY WEAR LIKE IRON AND GIVE GOOD TRACTION THROUGHOUT A LONG LIFE-TWO SEASONS EASILY. FOR MY MONEY, I WONT BUY ANY OTHER TIRE, EVER! STIFF CARCASS, WARM IT BEFORE YOU MOUNT IT.
A little tough to install, but that may have been lack of experience. Good traction, although the Rubicon needs an enduro tire. Got a flat, wasn't the tire, just the terrain. Tire held up on the long slow ride from the middle of nowhere back to the truck.
This tire performs great and hooks-up really well. Ware aspects are average. Hey! It,s a motocross tire!
I simply think this tire is great.
I ran a 19" starcross on my 450x for desert racing.. not complaints at all... however I did switch to the 18"maxxis IT due to overall better handling with the smooth strong pull of a 450.
I run the 18" starcross on my KTM 300xc (2013) I tried the Maxxis but had issues with it sliding out from under me in fast sweepers.. so I noted there was an 18" starcross out so I figured I'd try it.
My 2-stroke is set up with lightest spring for power valve for early hit.. a sxs factory pipe and turbine core silencer. This tire is the best I've tried on this bike and its very predictable. It grabs, it pulls, it turns without any issues at all. I love this tire on the 2-stroke.
Side note... I race offroad and Baja... and do a lot of minor endurocross type stuff. This tire had no issues with slow approach to do a quick 4 foot flat face rock hop, stays straight in the sand washes with really good traction... must be the main large center knobby... no major slippage at all... So its also good in the rocks in flowing dry creek bottoms you find in the south west.
I imagine the MS3 would be even better on rocks and such.. may chunk though... the MH3 has yet to chunk on me... and I can always reverse it.
I ride in the northeast where the ground is hard and rocky and the tire is excellent for the trails and track and the tire wears very good on these conditions the Michelin mh3 tire is the best tire hands down
This tire, in my opinion, is by far the best motocross tire, We have run them all and for the most part it comes down to rider preference. But for the hard pack tracks in the south, you cant beat the MH3....
Great tire in my opinion noon. Its a little tuff to get on I think because the rubber is a little tougher than most other tires but u can't beat the performance and it lasts a pretty long time in comparison to other tires IV used
Great traction in almost any condition very versatile, if it plots rain, no sweat drop a few psi and hit it. Super hard pack, rail it. Loam or tacky, perfecto! Also, hands down the coolest looking tire ever made. Sick pattern in style! Only thing is its super hard to mount by hand, but paying a local shop is worth it in my opinion. So dont let the poor ease of installation thing scare you. This is a bang for the buck indefinitely!
The Starcross rear tire is definitely my choice for sand, mud, and clay. I love the grip this tire puts out. Definitely the tire to have for trail and track.
rode over to moms house the other day. it hooked up real good on everything. got a 86 kx500.
I have used and love the Starcross front tires for years but they didnt make an 18 " rear till now and I like it! Just tried my first one and it worked well everywhere, did not chunk and held up real well so far on some nasty terrain. This is a great tire and I have tried many. I will buy another one.
Love the way they hook up, great bite in the corners. Hope this tire stays around cause its the only one on our bikes.
Recommended by my trainer. best tire ive ever had. most tracks around me a hard to medium with lots of rocks. other tires lost chunks. these are so rugged. also even if they wear down u can flip them for more life!
Tire works well on all terrain here in central MS.. from loamy dirt to slick trails, it really does perform well.. looks awesome too.. AND when or if I wear it out I can just flip it around and get some more life out of it.. can't go wrong here.. the reason for the low rating on install is I hate changing tires so I pay my local shop to do it for me so its nothing against the tire
I have been an avid starcross fan since i was on my YZ80. I have since madw the jump to the 250F. These tires have some seriously aggressive knobs on them. I had no problems in everything from sand to hard-pack. The only problem, installation. These are a seriously hard compound, and the sharp knobs make doing this without a tire stand somewhat painful. Thats is the ONLY downfall of these tires. How can you pass up one of the cheapest tires from a brand name, and the best traction? Everyone i reccomend these to never goes back.
I ride in the hills of mass, this is the third michelin I have bought in the last two years. I work 50 hours a week and strictly ride only on the weekends. I have rode my tire for roughly 9-10 hours and its already smoked, wearing and chunking on the center tred. I admit, i do ride rocky trails but the words hard terrain should not be in the description if it doesnt hold up to it. especialy for near close to a hundred dollars. Extremely upset, not sure if the tire was defective but this will probably be my last michelin purchase.
