Good traction!

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

Dependable tire.

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.

The Best

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.

Very good tire that holds its edge well

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!

GREAT COST EFFECTIVE TIRE

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.

Nice Tire, Good price

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.

I've tried the 19" now I have the 18" 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.

Awesome tire

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

Starcross MH3

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....

Good tire

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 tire! One of my favorites.

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!

Great

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.

Great tire!

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.

A: The Michelin StarCross MH3 Rear Tire is a Intermediate/Hard Terrain tire designed for traction in dry and hard-packed conditions. The massive central knobs also resist chunking. The tires below may hold up better for the riding you are doing.

A: You can use the larger size tire on your stock KX250F rim. Expect it to balloon more than stock which can negatively effect the handling. Also the tire will be taller, thus effect the overall gear ratio. You may also encounter rubbing issues on the fender and exhaust.

i have an 2000 kx 80 the rear tire is 90 100 14 does it take a tube? if so what would the tire pressure be? thank you

A: Your bike requires inner tubes with it's tires. A typical tire pressure is low, and the amount would be determined by the type of terrain you're riding. Personally I run my rear tire anywhere from 10-15 PSI depending on the type of dirt I'm riding.
CRFBomber
Over 7 years ago Location: Prairie City, OR
A: yes, this does take a tube. the tire pressure depends on your riding preference. alot of guys like to run between 10 and 15 psi but if you are looking for max traction ie hillclimbing i like to run down around 6 or 7. i would just play with it and see what you like
