Michelin M-12 REAR Tire/ Ever actually use one?
Posted February 19, 2005 - 11:35 AM
I normally use S-12's in the rear/ M-12 front but have been destroying rear tire on loose rocky terrain prematurely. I've used Intermediates that held up well but the tread depth is normally shorter or shallow on intermediates compared to the S-12 and the M-12 rear looks good in photos but for some reason it seems to get bad feedback. I can't imagine Michelin making a bad tire in a market they should be leading in.

I have run the M12 rear, usually in Summer. I don't know what the deal is with the reviews on this tire. I have come to like the tire. It handles most of the NCal summer terrain very well. I really have nothing bad to say about it
This past summer I was talked into trying the IRC VE33 rear. This tire held up great on pavement and the summer dirt. I did 2 dual sport rides and atleast another 500 miles on the dirt. It held up great !! I will probably run it again this year unless I try the Maxxis IT.
