great adventure tire

I adventure ride a 2009 KLR heavily modified and heavily loaded down with gear and me! This tire works very well on the street (I run max pressure on the street a little wobbly like others have mentioned but no big deal). Steady on the freeway at speed, steady in slow and fast corners at lean angles that a knobby tire should not be able to achieve! Great on dirt roads (I air down to 28 and ride on dusty and rocky terrain no mud or deep sand yet) and great on trails a KLR should not be on at all! I have maybe 1200 miles and it still looks good so we will see bout durability, but I did buy 2 rears to 1 front. I am 100% satisfied with my T63 rear tire and at these prices I am spending less than half of what the TKC I used to run costs and the durability seems comparable.

great tire

Tread is holding up well with 1k miles, 50% off road, loaded KLR 650 @ 29psi. Good traction, cleans out well in mud, great price. Will definitely buy again.

t63 tire

Glad to know there is a good replacement tire out there that doesn't cost a lot! Replaced my Twinduros and am very happy with the results! Bought a t63 front tire to try out and will mount it soon.

As close as it gets

I really like this tire. I have been in the same area for a while and have used 6 different rear tires for my 60% desert, 40% street riding. This tire performs very well for me in all but the really loose stuff. It hasn't really rained since I got this tire so I don't know about the mud performance. Noise and vibration levels were very good. I say this tire is as close to perfect as it can get.

T63 good alternative for the Yamaha TW200 front tire.

I bought this tire to improve the handling of my 99'TW200. The factory front tire is undesirable, it washes out in corners on gravel roads and not too stable on sandy dirt roads. I purchased the T63 rear tire as it matched the front tire size of 130/80/18. It was easy to install and has a much more aggressive tread pattern than stock tire. Now I can go thru loose corners and sandy roads with ease. No more washing out and low-siding. I am a more confident rider with this tire now. Off road performance is much improved all around. City and highway riding feels good. I am surprised at how smooth the ride at hi way speeds is. I didn't even need to balance the wheel, it rides smoother than the stock tire at 60+ mph. I'm guessing this tire will last a long time as my experience with Michelin tires are that the tread last and lasts.

Excellant on a KLR 650....

Ordered these on Tuesday of last week, received them on Friday, so already was impressed with Motorcycle Superstore on the 3 day guarantee. Had them mounted by Friday night, and was on the Trail Saturday A.M. Put 400 off-road miles on them and 32 street, and was thoroughly impressed with these tires all the way around. Whether it was hardpack, loose shale, steep climbs, snow, we hit it all and the tires never waivered once. Will definitely buy these again from Motorcycle Superstore as they did exactly what they advertised. Very impressed. I’m dying to get some more miles on these tires. Thanks Motorcycle Superstore!

Michelin - T63 Dual Sport Rear Tire

It's a good tire overall. And a great tire for the price. I gave up long ago trying or expecting to get over 3000 miles on any rear knobby tire under $100. Even paying over $100 for a knobby, you don't get that many more miles per dollar. It handles as well as any knobby on pavement. Way better than the Kenda Track Masters. I did notice that they don't dig as bad as the 606's or Track Masters in sand. At this price, I would buy again.

Awesome

I outfitted my '08 KLR 650 with these bad boys. Truly awesome! I ride mostly dirt, but I always ride street to get to the dirt. I thought I would be sacrificing street handling with the aggressive tread, but these handle great. I have dragged the foot peg more than once while cornering. The tread life isn't the longest, but at this price it's not an issue.

KLR-650 Rider

Installed a set on my 08 klr-650, didnt know what to expect. They work very well, I ride 50% street/50%dirt.I am NOT easy on them, have almost 3500 miles on them !Still have about 3/8 life left. Very noisy at speed. Reminds me of the gumbo hum, for those of you that have ever had large mud tires on a 4/wd. People don’t hear my bike, but they sure hear my tires coming. Scrape my pegs all the time. Will buy another set soon.

Good tire

I recently returned from riding my KLR650 to Alaska and back with the T63s on it. I have mad the ride before and this tire really did well. It was a big improvement on the gravel and it did fine on the pavement even on the wet days. I have 6K on the tire now. And as soon as it becomes availible (the biggest problem I have with the tire) I will be buying a new rear to go on the bike.

All around tire

I bought this and the matching front for my DRZ400S. I use it to commute everyday to school (about 10 min commute but covers an industrial area, regular streets, highway, and off road). I also do plenty of just riding around on and off road for fun. Great tires! They really hug the turns and even at street air pressure they still hook up good off road. So at off road air pressure I imagine they would be great. Awesome price to quality ratio.

Michelin T63 Rear Tire

Chose this tire to take down the first half of the Continental Divide trail this July. Admittedly, mostly for the price. 1,900 miles from Canada to Colorado. Hard dirt roads, soft sand, loose stone, wet, dry, mud and now another 900 miles of pavement as well. It has performed perfectly! About 70% worn with 2,800 miles. I will have another T63 on my KLR650 when we ride Colorado to Mexico next year!

Installed tire on KLR 650, and did a 830 mile dualsport ride through the Southern mountains of Colorado. Tire wore very good, a little noisy on highway. Dry traction very good and wet was excellent. Wear was good. Wet on pavement didn't happen so can't tell about performance on it. I think it will be my new favorite tire for the KLR, price was also very good.

Michelin - T63 Dual Sport Rear Tire

I purchased these tires for both the front and back wheels on my R80G/S. It took some getting used to for the first few days on the pavement after having run Avon Gripsters. I then took them on a long trip into the Black Rock desert in Northern Nevada. They performed superbly on rocks, dirt, loose gravel and pavement. With the bike fully loaded for a week long trip, I ran them on the pavement at 32psi Rear, and 28 Front. On the desert roads, I reduced the pressure to about 23psi Rear and 20psi in the front, which produced significant handling improvements (i.e. don't run them on the dirt at pavement pressure). On grooved pavement, they can be a bit disconcerting given the wobble you'll get out of them. You probably will find me riding them conservatively on the (wet) pavement, but overall, I was looking for a more aggressive enduro tire for backcountry touring and I found it in these.
