Comments about Michelin T63 Motorcycle Tire:
Great tires for the money, I've had three rears and two fronts. Very pleased. Great on gravel, good on highway, great off road. Rears last me about 3500-4000 miles , mostly highway and gravel.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

good dual sport tire
from central rocky mountains of Colorado
Check OILCheck truenessTire PressureI am currently using the rear T63 on a 17" wheel for a 425+ lb thumper. This is my first go at the T63 and I have only about 500 miles on the tire after having tried it on the pavement, gravel and dirt fire roads, rocky trails, and muddy sections. I am comparing the T63 to the Dunlop 606, Conti TKC80, and Pirelli MT21 rear tires on the same bike. I currently have this tire paired with the MT21 front tire.The TKCs are certainly a good dual sport tire and wear well enough; they ride great on the road but don't do a whole lot for aggressive off-road rocky mountain riding. My confidence level on the TKC80 is such that it will get me where I want to go but I also can't ask too much of it when off road. Again, a fine dual sport tire.The Dunlop and Pirelli options are much better for the tougher riding but they don't seem to wear as well as the TKC80. I recall the MT21 wearing longer than the 606. Neither tire wants to corner on pavement all that well but either works enough to get to a trailhead or down the highway to a rally. Given the large lug size and more generous spacing between lugs I can understand why these tires perform well off road and less well on road.Isn't this a review for the T63? YES! The T63 seems to lay between the TKC80 and the other two in terms of its performance. I am finding the tire corners really well on the pavement and it transitions cleanly throughout curved roads-likely because the tire has a nice round profile. Off road I find the T63 to be better than the TKC80 as it seems to hookup much better on just about everything. The T63 lugs are not as large as the MT21 or 606, and this does impact the off road performance as does its round tire profile. I find that off road it is easier to get the tire to break loose than the other two but, like the TKC80, if I ride within the boundaries of the T63 it does very well.I am likely going to replace the TKC80 with the T63 as my mileage tire if I plan on doing more pavement riding. The T63 seemed to be less expensive than the TCK80 and I like the off road performance I get with the T63 compared with the TKC80. If I am staying closer to home and will be riding trails most often then I will stick with the MT21 or 606. I have yet to determine how the T63 will hold up over time and that is about the only knock that this tire could have, as far as I can tell thus far.
BEST 90/10 DOT approved Knobby out there

I'd say, that after riding a myriad of other companies tires, this one performs best. The T63 is wonderfully priced, has a predictable and well-spaced lug pattern for quality street cornering in nearly any condition, and performs fantastically off-road. I'd burned through 3 sets on a 01' KLR650, and now am running my first set on a 99' XR650L. I'd almost consider putting these on my KLX as dirt-bike knobbies, since the price-break is so good!They wear down to a very noticible flat-spot in the rear after about 2000 miles, but then again, that's what most expect when running a 90/10 knobby on the street.I've ridden similar, but never better.

I have ridden these tires in everything. After the second year I had the front on, it turned into a ski in the mud.. I plan to buy another set. My first rear seemed to last forever, but I replaced it in February and I am already seeing wear. Maybe they changed the compound? I don't know. Well worth it. Especially if you live in a desert climate. I have them installed on my frakled DR650. Awesome! Highly recommended. Lastly, they corner like a dream, no chick strips here.
