I run the Michelin desert front! Awesome on hard pack and rocks! OK in the sand and below average in the mud. :eek: It is best suited for high speed fire road riding or dual sporting. Long lasting compound does not cut up in the rocks.
I have 2 sets of wheels and it is on my dual sport set. :applause:

thanks indy. They run them over here in oz for the finke desert race, apparantly the only tyre that lasts the whole event. Currently running maxxis IT rear, but it's not lasting too well. Might give the HT a go next I think.
