I would highly recommend you guys to my fellow riders. Was packaged well, arrived early and was exactly what I ordered. I can’t believe Michelin has discontinued this tire though. They really knocked it out of the park in value & performance!! Worth it’s weight in gold for trails and light to medium climbing. On asphalt it grips twice as well as the stock IRC’s that came on CRF250. Keep up the good work guys!

This is my second T63. I ride a WR250R and it has Good grip on road, steady and secure in sand, and the mud spots I have been in has been excellent traction. Tire waer is not great but have to remember it is a dual sport so have to give somewhere.
I used this tire on Route 3 of the OBDR mounted on my CRF250L.
I really liked how well it worked with different terrains. I get about 1000 miles before I start thinking about getting a new one, so Id like to see a little taller knobs on there but no tire is perfect. Tried out the Michelin AC10 for the last trip and I think I will be switching back to these.
Like it so far. Usually run the MT21 but figured I'd try these this time. Much softer and better feel on the pavement. Mud and sand are good as well. Don't expect the same life but I'd rather the traction anyway!
I bought this tire in hopes to have more confidence on dirt and trails, it exceeds My expectations in all aspect's, it grips on all terrain sand, dirt, mud, asphalt, when in doubt pin the throttle and this tire picks a line and stables the bike digs and goes. This tire grips on the aspault when your leaning to the pegs I only noticed a little less breaking force and it wears extreamly fast on the road, I ride extremely hard my bike is a dr650se and I am a 300+ pound rider. I'm about 500 miles in on this new tire And probably about half tread to go. I'm pleased with my purchase.
Great tire for the price. I ride 70% dirt and it loves to rocket the real-estate, sad for the riders behind Rowdy and I.
Other reviews I've read are pretty spot on. Installed these on my DR as the OEM tire fell far short of my expectations for mild offroad use. Sad reality is since installing most of my riding has been on the pavement. Rear is holding up well considering my 50mi round trip freeway commute. As others have stated, they hold their own on the road, have ridden them in variety of conditions including heavy rain at high speeds.
Offroad depending on soil conditions, they can pack up with clay/mud however this is not unexpected for most DOT knobbies. Be honest with yourself as to how much offroad your going to do. If your riding 50/50 or 70/30 these are a great choice. Michelin quality is among the best.
These tire deliver excellent performance both on the street and in the dirt. They hook up in the dirt like true knobs should, allow me to pass sport bikes in corners (seriously), and are quiet for highway droning.
Their one problem is that the knobs in the rear are just too short and wear out in no time. The front holds up fine, but it would be great if Michelin could add a half inch or so to the knobs. At least they are less expensive than some other similar tires (606), so I keep buying them.
I am on my 3rd set of this tire combo on my 12' wr 250r. I ride 70/30 street/off-road 3,000 miles per year. This tire is great for the price and when brand new I have ridden them on a pro motocross track and they can hold their own. When this tire hits the street I'd keep it on the street/trails. It wears into the road quickly and will not hold up to track conditions anymore. Currently I put these tires through the long run test. I have 2,700 miles on the set I have on my bike and they are shot. This tire will hold up nicely for up to 1500 miles of 70/30 hard riding. On the street they preform great considering the more off-road style tread pattern. I can lean it over in the turns and corner nicely without the fear of slipping. I would recommend to any dual sport rider with a similar riding style.
I put this on my 690 Enduro - stock is a 140/18 and the largest size available was the 130. Mounted it up and it fits and performs fine. Put about 200 miles of pavement (40-75mph) and an equal amount of dirt - wear is hardly noticeable and they ride fairly stiff for the PSI. Should prove to be good tires for the price.
