The replacement for the crowd favorite Anakee 2 tires has arrived! Michelin has vastly improved the Anakee in many ways including wear, feedback and wet weather performance. The Michelin Anakee 3 Tires are a further blend of long tread life, balance and rugged adventure.


  • Performance that lasts mile after mile with a new silica tread compound yields even more mileage compared to MICHELIN® Anakee® 2 tires
  • Innovative tread pattern inhibits irregular wear patterns, while evacuating water, dirt and mud
  • Transverse grooves efficiently evacuate water for dependable wet-weather grip
  • Beveled lateral grooves help shed mud and gravel when riding off-road
  • Enhanced ride qualities and tire architecture engineered for easy maneuverability and precise handling
  • Amazing stability and rider feedback, thanks to a new high-rigidity casing
  • Indented tread grooves help to provide consistent lateral grip even as the tire wears
  • Excellent wet traction and an innovative silica tread compounds offer the best balance between grip and durability
  • Distinctive tread pattern pulls water away from the contact patch

Note:  Anakee 3 tires are Bias Ply unless otherwise noted (e.g. 110/80R19 59H is a Radial Tire). TT indicates Tube Type Tire.

Excellent value Grips very well on road and does great on dirt as long as you stay out of deep sand. The only exception I've noticed is it does lose some traction on painted lines and glossy asphalt road patches. I was able to get 10,000 miles out of the rear tire and the front is still going strong at over 13,000 miles. Riding a 2014 GS 1200. March 2, 2015
Punctures I'll start by saying that I was really impressed with the dry and wet pavement grip with these tires when freshly put on my bike. The off-road performance wasn't bad for an 80/20 either. The big problem I've had with now two sets of these tires is that I've had punctures through the treads which have limited my use of these tires to only 6000 miles. There is still plenty of tread left but I don't really trust a tire with a plug in it. The first time was a slow leak but this last episode was a really quick loss of air pressure in my rear tire while going 80 mph down the highway. February 11, 2015
good tire overall... This is a nice tire.... Good on road and Light offroad (little mud and stones).... Really really sucks on sand and loose dirt.... No comments on wet traction as I didn't RIDE ir on the rain February 2, 2015
why didnt i fit these to my bike sooner had on a set of bridgestone battle ax tires on and they were good but the level of grip i get with these is fantastic almost every conner i go through on my F700 GS i can feel the toe of my boot dragging. the confidence these tires give is amazing as well, honestly they have done a great job with this tire and cant wait to see where they take me. November 11, 2014
Excellent 80/20 tire choice for a big ADV bike I ride my Yamaha Super Tenere off-road often but also ride long distances to out-of-the-way locations. I needed a tire I could put lots of miles on and still have off-road traction when I got there. I live in Oregon where it rains a lot and needed good wet-weather traction, especially in the winter. My Anakee 3s are doing all of this for me. I've got 3000 miles on them with no discernible wear yet. They have good all-weather grip and smooth predicable handling in all conditions. They are also very good on the forest roads and trails up here in Oregon. I'm totally satisfied. November 3, 2014
So far so good with about 750 miles in the tires. Just replaced the worn out stock Bridgestone Trail Wings on my Suzuki V-Strom 650. I liked the confidence inspiring stickiness of the stock tires in tight curves, but I wore out the rear tire in about 4,500 miles. Hoping for better life out of these new Anakee III's. Most of my riding is on the Blue Ridge Parkway and other twisties in Central Virginia. Pretty abrasive pavement. My Anakee III's do not howl as mentioned in other reviews. I can't hear them at all. They seem to fall into curves smoothly and hold well. I like 'em so far. I suspect they are better suited for Parkway curves than 4 - lane straight-up riding most of the time. These tires need to get leaned over frequently to wear properly, I'm guessing. One curious thing I've noticed about them... I'm not a super aggressive rider; it's rare for me to scrap a peg on any bike. But, I noticed that my Anakee III's are scuffed all the way to the edge of the tread design. No chicken strip like most of my tires exhibit. October 20, 2014
Less street performance than expected I ride a 2012 BMW 1200 GSA about 90/10. I push the limits on the street, but only get from A to B when off pavement. Anakee 3 on the back was an improvement for mileage and being able to dig into softer surfaces over Anakee 2. I have been disappointed with Anakee 3 on the front though. Its limits are noticeably less than the Anakee 2 for sport bike like street use. The front also felt nervous and was noisy for the first several thousand miles of highway travel. Worst feature though is the way it loses feel over tar snakes. On the plus side, it seems to resist washout better through loose gravel and does well in the rain. Bottom line is that for pushing hard on the streets, Anakee 3 on the front does not suit me. September 25, 2014
Okay for the DL650 I am just about to replace the front Anakee 3 on my Suzuki DL650. It has thoroughly worn very evenly across the profile and around circumference after 6500 miles. The front and rear Anakee3s were put on at the same time and the rear has perhaps a another 5000-6000 miles to go. This I find odd. On all other bikes that I've had, I've generally worn out two rears to every one front. The DL650 has always worn out the factory brand front and rear at the same time, in about 8500 miles. I hadn't noticed any unusual noise beyond what other brands produced. I most often travel fast crooked poor quality roads on my daily 56 mile commute and take the occasional pleasure trip with a few unpaved roads here and there and the Anakees have performed very nicely. I think I'll put another Anakee3 up front to run off the Anakee3 rear and switch back to the factory brand. Not really a glowing recommendation I guess, but I liked the factory brand tires and I like replacing both tires at the same time. Nothing like the confident feel of new rubber all the way around. I hope this is helpful. September 15, 2014

Norman D: 2nd set, they do howl a bit at highway speed but I am thoroughly impressed with the mud and gravel ability of this tire.
Jan 2, 2015
Terry G: Out standing tire wear and great cornering grip in the wet. Use them to travel to Prudhoe Bay in Alaska and they work great even on the dirt. Can get up to 10k pretty easy with them. I have 2014 R1200GSAW and it was loaded heavy for the trip.

They do make some noise while corning some, I thought I had a wheel bearing going out and it was the tires makes sounds in the corners. When I say corners, its at a pretty high speed and turning angle. This is my third set of these tires Anakee 3 and I'm using them to travel the Silk Road this Spring starting in Istanbul, Turkey. I trust them to a big trip like this to complete the whole trip on the same tires.

john c: Love Michelin Motorcycle Tires the Anakees are KILLAH MON IRIE Aug 1, 2014
Mark F: Have a set of these on my R1200GSA that I bought from Revzilla last year. I now have 18,000 kms on them and will probably need to replace by 20,000. This is the best mileage that I have gotten from any set of tires on this motorcycle. This is a good all round tire for this motorcycle. Aug 1, 2014
weston s: After many hours of forum reading, I still couldn't get a clear answer on how these tires are. After watching the revzilla review and some more debating I figure these tires have the best chance of meeting my demands for a good tire with my riding style. Thank you Revzilla! Jul 31, 2014
Joseph W: great reviews on stromtrooper and advrider. The tires have been awesome, I've got about 4,000 miles on them and they are performing like new. So much better than the stock tire. I will probably get another pair again when it's time. Jul 13, 2014

Curtis H: I ran a set of Anakee III summer 2013 including a trip to Dead Horse Alaska. 12,000 miles and there is still thread left. The Anakee III stick to pavement like sport tires and are pretty good in mud. Anakee III are the best large dual sport tires I have ran. Apr 14, 2014
Philip S: I need a rear tire sized 140/80-17 for an old BMW K100RS and prefer a radial tire. The Anakee is only one of two radial rear tires in that size, the other is an Avon Azaro that is very expensive and no better a tire than a Michelin. Apr 11, 2014
Mike H: Based on feedback on Stromtroopers, the Michelin Anakee 3 tire was the way to go for my Vstrom DL650. I've put several thousand on these (rain or shine) and love them. Mar 20, 2014
Mark R: Have run Michelin tires on my GS for several years. Good wear and excellent performance. Mar 9, 2014
James H: I read some good reviews on the tires and after running them for several months now I am glad that I purchased them. The handle really well but they do have a little bit of a hum on the road. Feb 27, 2014
Onezean O: Well recommended by V-Strom owners Feb 26, 2014
T O: This will be my second set of Anakee 3 tires on my 2010 BMW R1200 GSA. Great handling, long wear tires. Feb 25, 2014
Michael M: I went through two sets of the Anakee 2's on my V-Strom 1000 and loved them, bought a used Super Tenere that needed tires and it was automatic to put the knew Anakee 3's on it. At this point I have 1200 miles on the tires and as much as I liked the Anakee 2's the 3's are better. I have about 70 miles on dry dirt and gravel roads and the motorcycle is solid as a rock. Wet or super sandy roads I will tip toe until I find out what they can do. Jan 29, 2014
John B: All the talk about the new Anakee 3 got me excited. I needed all-weather, all-year riding tires. I thought these would handle the weather, be long wearing, and be good on the gravel and hard pan roads that make up a small part of my commute. Turns out it's been great for starters, but now that I've got a ton of miles (and still have good tread depth) they are noisy, wore uneven, and make vibrations and noise at low speed. Not the "one tire to rule them all" I was hoping for. Jan 7, 2014
marc r: good reviews on adv website Jan 4, 2014
David M: Michelin fame and wanted to try something new Dec 13, 2013
Martin B: It´s a new product and I liked to try it. Actually it works perfect and just can recommend it. Runs a little bit loud in front but very good in the wet and dry. Dec 9, 2013
Kurt S: This tire has the highest ratings and regards for large adv touring bikes like the tiger 800xc. It also is reviewed to last 8000 - 10000 miles. The minor negative review of a hum from the tire does not bother me. It also accepts a tube which I need on my tiger 800 xc. Finally the characteristics of good street (wet or dry) handling combined with the ability to handle dirt and gravel moderately well covers all the terrain I see in my daily riding. All these conditions made this tire 'the' tire. Oct 6, 2013
fred b: i bought this rear tire for my dr650. i use it for commuting and drive aggressively and usually go through rear tires at 4000 miles. this rear tire lasted about 6000 miles and sticks like glue in the rain. tires never cupped and handle very good. the front tire still looks almost new and will probably last for 18000 miles. highly recommend. Sep 21, 2013
George R: highly rated........ Sep 18, 2013
Clark S: price was right. order process was easy. product reviews were helpful. Aug 30, 2013
Gilbert F: I like the pilot road 3 and wanted to try the pilot road 3 trail but it is not offered in the rear tire size that I need so this is a second choice. We ride pavement only and this appears to be something to try after 4 sets of battle wings. Aug 28, 2013
Thomas G: Replacing existing Anakee 3 with 8500 miles. Excellent tire. Great grip in all conditions. Aug 19, 2013
Michael Y asked: I am looking to put these tires on my Vstrom 650. The OEM tires were a speed rating of H, the rear Anakee 3 is not available in an H but is available in V. I know it is fine to upgrade the speed rating but im torn by the fact that the front tire size is offered in both an H and a V…..Why would you want an H instead of a V? Should I get the H in front and V in rear, or get both in a V because the rear is not offered in H? Mar 11, 2015

Michael L: I doubt it will make any difference since it is unlikely you'll be riding over 130 mph. That said, I'd personally get a matched set of V rated tires b/c the price difference is minimal and I'd want what the manufacturer has designed to work together. Mar 11, 2015

ROBERT M: I have an H and a v on my 09 Vstrom. These tires more than met my tire expectations, and show little wear after 2 years of mixed street riding. If it makes you more comfortable, them buy both V rated tires. Mar 11, 2015

John D: I rode my Wee over 7,000 miles from PA to CO, UT, AZ, on Anakee 3 (Trails ) and I'd like to think they were great on the mountain passes, sand and wet tarmac. ....better than the PR3's I've had.. Mar 11, 2015

A shopper asked: The tire size 120/90x 17 has a "TT 64S" in the description, what does it mean? Oct 30, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
George V: The 120/90-17 is a rear tyre which requires a tube. The load rating of 64 means the tyre is rated to handle a maximum weight of 280kg. The speed rating of ’S’ means the tyre is rated to a maximum speed of 112mph/180kph.

@Paul M - TT=tube type, TL=tubeless.

Daniel F: I do not know what the "TT 64S" means but I have been meaning to contact you as I am not happy with the wear patter on this tire at all. With only about 2K miles on these tires the front is wearing very funny. What should I do about this?

sean e: I would agree with Stromtrooper. I have these on my GS, great highway tire, no complaints on packed dirt. It will get squirrely on loose gravel turns. Not a real big deal, just be aware of your speed and position if hitting a turn on gravel with these tires. Straightaways no big deal Nov 19, 2013

MrBluesky: You will not be dissapointed. It is a more road oriented tire suitable for communiting for sure but can handle trails comfortably especially on a KLR 650. Ride a 650 GS myself and put 7000 kms on it in the past 3 weeks. Good luck with your choice! May 2, 2013
Reply to MrBluesky Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Stromtrooper: I would say that they would be a great commuter tire for you as far as fire roads I would think it would need to be a well tight packed road. Don't think it would be real good on the loose gravel. May 2, 2013

charles w h: get the same size in the anakee 3 ...if they don't have them in your size get the next size bigger cause they are usually only 3/16 to 1/4 of an inch wider total ..I have been running one to two sizes over size on my old XR 500 and XR 600 for years with still enough clearance not to get into the chain or pack up with mud on bad trails ..so you should be fine with a tire width of the 140 ...hey and these anakee 3 tires hook up in the dirt much better than they look like they would ! they will surprise you ...and great on wet pavement ..but like all multi purpose tires DO NOT push them to the razor's edge Oct 21, 2014

Joy W. C: You need to see if the Anakee 3 comes in the right size for your KLR. My 1200 GS uses a different size. The folks at Revzilla I'm sure could tell the right tire. BTW I have been happy with the Anakee 3 Tires so far. Oct 20, 2014

A shopper asked: What is the difference in the V, H, & S May 13, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Streven M.: These are speed ratings on the tires. H= 130mph, V= 149mph, S=112mph. Usually higher speed is a stickier tire that handles better, but does not last as long as a lower speed tire. Exceeding speed rating can cause tires to de-laminate.. which really sucks on a vehicle with only 2 tires. May 29, 2013
Reply to Streven M. Good answer? Yes (2) No (0)
Anthony T: Sorry if this is a dumb question, but is there any issue if I wanted the stickiness of an H rated tire, even though I don't ride faster than an S. Is longevity the only factor? Is there much difference using an H in the 80–100mph range? My main issue is that I ride in the rain a lot and like the piece of mind having a tire that grips well. I've run Anakee's most of the life of my DR650, but usually only S tires. Thanks! Jan 31, 2014
