Product Details

Michelin Starcross 5 Medium Motorcycle Tires are designed to give you traction in all sorts of medium terrain conditions. The aggressive front tread never washes out in steep lean angles while the rear provides dirt shredding traction as well as a large lean angle to keep your rubber side down. The Michelin Starcross 5 Medium Motorcycle Tires are lighter, stronger and provide more contact patch than previous Michelin dirt tires.

   Features:
  • Reduced unsprung mass on both front and rear tires reduces the rotational inertia for improved acceleration, braking, and steering control.
  • Stronger, higher density casing materials minimize weight up to an average of 10% for all tires.
  • Self Cleaning Tread Design -Fine lines found at the base of the tread blocks are designed to release mud and debris as the casing flexes to maintain maximum traction and clean tread.
  • Confort Casing Technology - The new casing absorbs square edges and braking bumps better, and minimizes tire rebound, which helps reduce rider fatigue.
  • MICHELIN StarCross 5 front tires are designed to enhance braking performance and cornering traction while maintaining an optimized contact patch.
  • Enhanced tread designs with more aggressive sculptures and variable height tread blocks that maintain traction straight up and at varying lean angles.
  • Lateral rigidity is maintained by using two, more densely constructed polyester plies, providing increased sidewall strength, which reduces the likelihood of pinch flats.
  • Wider Range of Use: MICHELIN StarCross 5 Medium and Soft versions are more versatile and effective in a wider range of terrains and conditions compared to the previous range
  • The new bead profile makes them easier to install.

I rode the soft tire and loved it however we have a lot of hard rocky terrain so it didn’t last long, now I’m trying the Medium tire hoping for a longer life.

Michelin is a great tire and it will stand up to the tough terrain of Nevada for BITD Vegas to Reno race and Baja, Mexico for SCORE 50th Anniversary Baja 1000, when I ride Ironman at 62 years young.
Dennis R on Aug 6, 2017
Happier with the Michelin starcross 5 back tire over a Dunlop mx52 so I decided to try there front tire
jean-christian p on Jun 10, 2017
I had these on the bike when I bought them, It's a KTM 300XC. I really like them for single track. Where I ride the tracks are deep and they don't drive you crazy trying to climb out.
Geordie S on Mar 28, 2017
My favorite front tire for mixed conditions including wet or dry rocks, ledges, sand, and mud. Performance stays high for 15-20 hours in extremely rocky conditions and more than 30 in mixed.
barry b on Jan 23, 2017

Look for a dunlop tire front & back

For XR 350R what tires would you recommend ??
Mark W on Jun 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: For Dunlop we recommend the D605. The front is offered in a 3.00-21, an exact match to your OEM front tire. The rear calls for a 5.10-17, Dunlop offers this tire in 4.60-17. The rear is slightly shorter and narrower, but should work. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you by contacting us by email at [email protected], Live Chat or by phone toll-free at 1-888-339-3888. We are always more than happy to help.
