Michelin T63 Tire Review

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. 🙂

Posted this video just for the first 14 seconds of moto + mountain bike rack porn. I’m getting one of these puppies installed on my KLR650 in 2015 to expand its adventure hauling capabilities. 🙂
