Michelin T63…

I installed Michelin T63 tires on my KLR650 in the summer of 2012 because I wanted better handling on the dirt and deep gravel of the forest service roads I was using to get out to Lake Nihtnat kiteboarding. These tires have proven to work very well for that purpose and doing great on pavement as well. My rear tire has over 10,000kms on it with at lest 7,000kms of paved riding and it still has 30%-40% of the tread left.

That is pretty amazing.

I wasn’t sure how these knobbies would do on pavement, but I’ve been riding them pretty hard wet and dry with no issues at all.

I paid under $100 per tire back in 2012.

When these tires wear out I’ll be buying more. 🙂

    I have a set sitting in my garage waiting for my TKC80’s to ware out. This is great news as the T63’s are so much cheaper.

      @Rob – I’ve had TKC 80’s on my previous KLR and the T63s perform as well, last longer and cost less.

      That’s a win in my book!

    Vik – you still running the Michelin tires? Am looking for something more suitable for off-road conditions as my Heidenau Scouts are rather lacking…
