  • Michelin has developed the StarCross MH3 motorcycle tire for serious riders and weekend warriors looking to get excellent traction on intermediate to hard terrain.
  • The Michelin StarCross MH3 tire features massive knobs to resist chunking. The reshaped side knobs on the StarCross MH3 tire provides improved grip when cornering.
  • The innovative mirror image tread pattern is reversible on the StarCross MH3 and includes a tread-wear indicator which tells the rider when it is time to reverse the tire resulting in better traction and longer tire life.
  • The super stiff sidewalls on the StarCross MH3 help absorb the high-impact shock incurred when landing jumps.

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!

Can i increase my rear tire size from 100/90-19 57m to 110/90-19 62m and use my stock rim?

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.

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.

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

What lasts long a starcross MS3 or MH3 in varied terrain? Which one has a softer compound?
Over 5 years ago
tep52
the ms 3 will usally last longer due to the fact that it is a harder compond.
