Tires

I tried the Michelin Starcross MH2 tire for the front and was amazed at how well it worked. Much better then the current 20" Dunlop 756 I have on.

If I ever go back to the 21 that is the ONLY tire I will run. Some Walmarts even stock them but I haven't had any luck here in AZ.

Never tried the rear, but my friends in Florida swear by the S12 rear.

G-Man

Has anyone tried the Michelin Starcross MH2 tires? I really like the M12, but it doesn't hook up real well when it's really hardpack. Any other suggestions for intermediate to hardpack conditions. Thanks.

I mounted a MS2 on the back and it hooks up real well.

Pretty soft rubber though and seems to wear fast on the hardpack I have been on lately with the summer sun and dry breezes drying the track out so quickly.

Great tire

I have had awesome luck with the Mich. M-12f

and the S-12r.

Seems to be a great combo.

I had the M-12on the rear and it felt like ice skates.

I also had the S-12 on the front and it did good in soft-imdt but sucked on roads or hard pack.

My friend w/the m-12 on the back of his cr500 said the same thing........Must be something with the torque.

Seemed OK on launch or acc but really stunk on braking!

NOPE..........BOY.......

That's not thunder ridin' your BUTT .........

It's a whole Damn HURRICANE!!!!!!

I am kinda biased towards Mich as i have stated b4.

I am not sure but i think that mich sponsors a BIB buck program across the nation.

Basically they pay you cert. $ if you where a couple of stickers and ride there tires.

$50 for 1st

$10 for 5th

can't beat that.

Not sure if it is nat. wide though

YOu guys may wanna' check.

Just got $120 the other day and that makes a total of $200 for the year! :D

That is for an avg ride!

last year they paid me nearly $600-800 incl.

$100 bonus for season champ.

I havent bought a tire for 1.5 yrs :)

NOW THAT IS COOL

I would just like to thank my MX sponsors.....................

MICH.

and..............MY PAYCHECK........ :D ........LOL

g4,

I have seen you mention the Michelin $$ before but I cannot find any reference to it.

Do you have any contact info so I could call and find out if they have that program available here in AZ?

Thanks

I am looking at either dunlops or michelins for a needed tire replacement...

What do you guys recommend for intermiediate to harDpadk I am in KS so it's pretty dry and hard most of the season..

The MH2sounds interesting and I have a M12 that was on the bike when I got it but it won't hook up to well on the hard stuff...

Do any of you suggest going with a matched front and rear or not?
