Michelin T63 Dual Sport Rear Tire
Good deal for agressively OR DOT tire
I bought this for a winter tire in a cold, snowy environment. I knew the tread was a soft compound but thought that would be best for cold weather. Unfortunately it proved too soft to hold screw-in type studs and threw 90% of them after a freeway trip at 90MPH. Traction was still excellent on dry pavement and ok in smaller amounts of snow/slop. We have had a very dry winter and i've put on many high speed highway miles and it has worn quickly, At 2000 it still has some life left, but by the time i actually needed to get through a blizzard, the knobs were more than half worn and i struggled fiercely with the rear. The front has been flawless.

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.

Overall for the price this is a good tire on a 2013 klr650 at least in my own opinion for whatever that's worth my only complaint at this point is the tire is slightly puncture prone due to minimal tread plying

great price good qualty
great grip on a wide range of surfaces especially dirt fire road terrain where most big dual sports are used also good on virgin ground such as heavy levees under forest canopy basically they work well anywhere a big duel sport can go.

great value, good in the mud, not too loud on the road
only ridden these now a few times, but did good in the mud and slime this weekend, while my wifes "50/50" tires were sliding all over the place.
The spacing of the knobs, seems a little closer, so on the road it seems a little smoother and quieter than my previous tires

Great DOT tire for my 03 KLX300, I went with a 130 width, with no clearance issue at all. Great feel and good grip on the pavement, and off road, it also has good traction. I had the Michelin AC10 on the bike, the AC10 had great off road traction, but on the paved roads, the T63 is much better!
