Michelin T63 Dual Sport Front Tire
This tire is fantastic. excellent onroad grip for a pretty aggressive knobby and fantastic grip offroad. tread life is excellent considering the knobs and the soft rubber compound. should get about 3500 miles out of this on my rear. Grabs well in rain and wet, even does well in mud. just churns through no problem. Just wish the tread would last longer.

Great front tire!
This front hooks up great with d606 rear on my KLR. Will always buy as long as its produced!

Do not recommend!
Great traction and grip, wear, forget it , 1500 to 1700 the tire was shot!

Good tire - KLR650
Great all around tire. A little noisy, tread life not great if on tarmac mostly. But good compromise for price and traction in a dual sport tire.

Awesome tire if you dual sport with your bike
I ride a 300lbs wr250r plus the 200lbs me and this tire is seeming to hold up. The rubber seems a bit softer than my previous tire, the infamous deathwing. I have about 1000 miles on it and its starting to wear but its minimal. I expect to hit 4000 miles before i swap out for a new one. The grip is MUCH better than the deathwing. Very predictable tire. A little noisey but its a dual sport tire, its expected. Btw i ride the bike 40 miles round trip to work whenever i can so its alot of onroad miles.

can't beat it
Great tire for dual sport/forest service roads. Break it in and it'll treat you well. Corners surprisingly well for such an aggressive knobby. Slight patterned vibration when I'm on asphalt going 60+ on my DRZ400s.
Doesn't bother me as I know it's give and take with dual sports.

It's best for price. Tread is dwindling faster than I'd like but I guess I've been on the asphalt more lately. Will mostly stick with this tire unless I go strictly street or strictly dirt.

Perfect winter tire
I bought a set of T63s for winter road tires in a cold, snowy environment. I put a fair amount of screw-in road studs in it. the rear threw almost all of it's studs, but they are all still in the front. I have yet to have any traction concerns with the front, from an inter-city trip at 90MPH on the freeway to a 25 mile commute through 2+ inches of accumulating snow (granted, i am not going to push it in winter much). One day i noticed the front end was feeling a little wobbly through some high speed sweepers and thought it was the effect of the studs, but checked 10 miles later it it was completely flat! I'm not sure i'll want to take this tire off even when it becomes warm enough for serious road riding...
I only gave the tread life a 4 because i have really no idea- the studs have prevented any noticeable wear for the first 2000 miles at least.
