    Michelin T63 DOT Dual Sport Front Tire

    Billed as a 50/50 dual sport tire, the Michelin T63 is nonetheless a worthy choice for the rider who primarily spends the majority of their time off road. Inspired by the Dakar winning Michelin Desert, the T63 features large burly knobs that grip in rocks, gravel and rough soft dirt. Additionally, you’ll be hard pressed to see any chunking here with the strong reinforced carcass construction.
    • Tread pattern derived from Michelins highly successful Desert tires, for exceptional traction off road
    • Excellent stability and durability
    • High level of grip on the road
    • Reinforced knobs resist tearing and abrasion on asphalt
    • “S” speed rated for highway use
    • Item # 19824

    Not Bad for price

    This is not a great tire nor a bad tire. It just falls in between there somewhere. I have yet to find the perfect tire for pavement and dirt. It seems to wear rather fast, but I run it hard on the pavement also. I don't like it at all in the wet grass, once rounded off it will just keep sliding. Like I said, there is no perfect tire for the best of both worlds. Price is a big plus with these tires. I do rip up a lot of gravel roads and it seems to be a pretty stable tire.

    T 63 on xt 250

    Great tire on my XT250. I found it only lacking in sand, rear tire digging in, front not tracking. I rode a couple 100 miles on west Texas tracks, over gravel, sheer rock, bolders and was happy. I bought another set of these for replacement, tread life seems good, maybe 1,800 miles on the tires and 2-3 mm gone with plenty left.

    Great all around tire

    I adventure ride a heavily loaded and modified KLR. Loud on the freeway but it does not bother me at all. Handles 90mph sweepers and tighter twisties really well. Great on dirt roads. Does well on rocky trails. I have not run any real sand or mud yet. I run 30 psi off pavement, any less and it goes to mush and feels terrible, and 34 on the road. I think this front will last two rears but that is normal. Will definitely buy again!

    T63

    I rate the tire very good in all conditions. As others have said it is noisy on pavement. A great valued tire.

    Nice tire

    Changed to these from Tourances for a BMW GS Challenge. Found the tires handled quite well on twisty roads and on rock fire roads as well as dirt trails. No mud use. Motorcycle Superstore delivered tires on time.

    T63 Michelins

    I've put about 1,000 miles ont the T63's. They feel the same on pavement as the stock Dunlop K750's but begin to sing at speeds over 45 MPH. The noise is not too intrusive, and wind noise drowns out the tire singing over 60 MPH. The tires work noticeably better than the stock Dunlops in moderate conditions, such as unimproved forest service roads and gravel roads. I've not tried them on real gnarly terrain yet, but I expect that they will take me wherever the KR650 and my riding skill can go.

    Great tire for the price

    This tire seems to stick pretty well. I spent an entire day on a very tight single track with lots of rocks. This tire did an excellent job of sticking to the line I picked. It actually surprised me by being better at holding the line than the Maxxis I had on the front before. Will definitely buy this for the front again, but as with the other comments the rear is just too soft.

    Too soon to tell about tire life

    The price was really good! I put the T63 on front and rear of KLR650 at same time. Slow speed (a crawl on pavement) is a little lumbering. On dirt, forest service and gravel roads they handled well. Good hook up. On pavement I have no real complaints, a little noisy but wind speed soon drowns that out. At 300 mi. the rear nobs are starting to round, front look good. 70% dirt riding at this point. I think I would purchase the T63 again. Ask me again after I have 2000 or more miles on them.

    Versatile Tire

    I recently bought this full set for my '01 KLR. They have only been on for about a month, so I don't have a lot of information regarding the tread wear, but so far the tires are great. I have used them both on and off road, and the only complaint is a fair bit of road noise at certain speeds, but that's to be expected I guess.

    Great Price, Great Tire

    Great tire for the price. I ride about 60 mile a day on the pavement at least three days a week. The rest of the time I am riding around the ranch and the mountains. I ride an XR650L and these tires have outlasted anything else I have found as far as a fairly aggressive tread design that has quite a bit of longevity when used on the pavement more than half of the time. I put around 4000 miles on the last T-63 front I just replaced. Great tire!

    t63

    I am pleasantly surprised with this tire. I ride shinko 705 tires in winter here and last summer ran Dunlop 606. The t63 rides smooth like the shinko on the road and has a softer sidewall that helps smooth out the ride offroad compared to the 606. It doesn't feel like it has its own legs in corners like the 606 either. Very happy with this tire.

    Perfect Tire for Transalp

    Excellent traction on pavement & better than less aggressive tread patterns on the dirt (Southern California sand/adobe hard pack). Tread wear acceptable. Fun to strafe lesser combinations in the twisties on a 24 year old 'compromise bike' on knobbies.

    Change in manufacturing

    For years the T63 has been one of the best dual-sporting tires. Now that they are being made in China there not as good.

    Made in China!

    What a bummer the T63's have become since this situational change. Too bad you won't print these negative facts!

    Good tire for the money. Horrible in mud!

    These tires wear well and do a good job given the price. However, in mud they fill up quick and go no where.
