Steven W: The last set of Michelins (Anakee 2) wore bad, big bumps on them, very noisy, vibrates do to the beat up tread pattern and the entire tire (front and back) came from the factory with a cut or sipe running around the entire tire (center). Michelin rep said "that's weird". Normally I wouldn't buy again from a company that doesn't stand behind their product but I've always liked Michelins. I have them on my new F250 and the Nissan Juke, so I'm trying the new Anakee 3.May 11, 2015
Alex P: A big improvement traction and wear wise, but I still replaced it early with a Road 4 TrailMay 5, 2015
Ric M: After reading several reviews I decided to try these tires on my V Strom. I do like the Heidenau Scout better but the Anakees perform well.May 2, 2015
Ronnie S: Was looking for a good on/off road tire for my 1200gsa. I took a 4,000 mile trip that 80% roads 20% off roads and never had an issue one with this tire, front or rear. I was riding single and fully loaded with camping gear and needed essentials. Went thru light snow, plenty of rain, and plenty sunny weather. Traction maintained throughout. I'm really impressed with the Anakee 3.Apr 22, 2015
Mark H: I really like the tire. I like the way it feels on the road.Apr 20, 2015
J O: Advice from fellow riders. Decided to give it a go on 2014 R1200GS. Have used Tourance Next in the past.Apr 20, 2015
Joel S: Needed more road friendly tires for the type of riding i do , but do not want to give up gravel and packed dirt roadsFeb 26, 2015
ABDULLA S. A: it was recommended by one of my friends who have read alote of anakee 3 review & I am buying again for best frind janjon f800gs 2012 whos traveling alote with his bikeJan 17, 2015
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. Later, NormJan 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.Dec 5, 2014
Sid G: past experience, excellent handling and good life on previous setDec 1, 2014
Douglas E J: my second set.....first set still has miles to go after around 10k miles and trip to BC......all kinds of weather......minimal off road ....great tire....DEJNov 17, 2014
David H: Bought these for KLR.What a tire so far for this bike and these east Tn roads.Not too bad on gravel but on pavement just lean and lean and lean,very nice.Oct 20, 2014
Johnny W: Hope to achieve less shimmy in the front-end on a 230 dual sport at high speed (65 mph)Sep 1, 2014
colm m: Replacement tire for the stock tires on my F700GS. Great on road and very usable on easy dirt.Aug 18, 2014
john c: Love Michelin Motorcycle Tires the Anakees are KILLAH MON IRIEAug 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
Tim G: The Anakee 3 Tires looked to be a good option for my BMW F800GSJul 12, 2014
jose luis h: Replacement tires for Tiger 800 roadie.Jul 12, 2014
Christopher S: One of the few DS tires that has the correct front tire size for my Triumph Tiger 800. Also, I hear it has great wet-weather traction. I do not take my bike very far offroad.Jul 5, 2014
Charles S: Michelin quality, pure and simple.May 23, 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 ownersFeb 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
David M: Michelin fame and wanted to try something newDec 13, 2013
Martin B: ItÂ´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
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 S asked:cAN THE ANAKEE 3 130/80/R17 65S BE USED ON A TUBE TYPE APPLICATION SUCH AS A 2008 KLR650 ?May 9, 2015
Thank you, I have a 2008 klr and it is a blast to ride.I dont do a lot of off road rides and the t63 michelins only hold up for about 3ooo miles. I would say i am on the street 90% Would love to chat about the differences in our klr's
May 10, 2015
Michael, I'm also on the streets most of the time but our roads leave much to be desired. I'm in the Caribbean, Trinidad. L try to stay off the highways and use the back roads, much nicer ride with lots of twists and turns.
May 10, 2015
I am in the states, south carolna. our roads are not so great either..but they do have some nice twists nd turns...north carolina is better... just google "tail of the dragon" rode it two weeks ago on a super tenere wish I could have taken the KLR
May 10, 2015
Mark F:My experience is that it is possible to use a tube in a tubeless tire. For legal reasons the manufacturer will probably not recommend that combination. Having a tube in a tubeless tire will usually generate more heat in the tire and under extreme conditions (high ambient temperatures and high speeds) might possibly cause a failure. Normal usage should not be a problem.May 9, 2015
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
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.
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 dealNov 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
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 edgeOct 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
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
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
