Overview of Michelin S12 XC Tire

 

  • Designed to maximize traction
  • New rear rubber mixture improves durability by at least 25-30 percent over Michelin's S12 and M12 tires
  • The improved feedback and rigid sidewalls come from the larger-diameter beads and thicker bead filler area
  • Improved traction, feel and the rapidity of warm-up time is provided by the additional thin casing ply under the tread
  • S12 XC soft to intermediate terrain tires feature tall, narrow knobs for mud penetration; front knobs turned 45 degree for mud evacuation

NOTE:

Dennis Kirk recommends a new tube and rim strip when replacing a tube-type tire

Safety Warning:

Please consult tire manufacturers publication(s) and/or website(s) for information on tire care, safety, installation, maintenance, manufacturer’s warranty and other information. The tires used for your application must have a load index and speed rating equal to or greater than the tires fitted as original equipment.

Excellent Tire for sand and mud
This is the best tire for sand, mud and otherwise soft conditions. Tried bridgestone, maxxis and pirellis and this tire just bites much better in the turns.

Best tire for sand and loamy soil
Tire wears great and hooks up best with low tire pressures. It has a stiff sidewall making it a little tough to mount but it's worth it. On a light bike, you could run a good pace when this tire is flat!

THE TIRE I KEEP GOING BACK TO
GOOD WOODS TIRE. PREDICTABLE. WORKS WELL FOR ME ON ALL TERRAIN RUNNING 12 PSI WITH SUPER HEAVY DUTY TUBE. I GENERALLY RIDE MODERATE TO DIFFICULT TRAILS IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST WITH ROCKS & ROOTS. DOUBLE & TRIPLE BLACK DIAMOND NOT MY FAVORITES.
I RUN THE IRC M5B ON THE REAR OF MY 01 CR250. IT IS BY FAR THE BEST TIRE I HAVE USED. I USED TO RUN THE DUNLOP 773. HAVE TRIED THE MICHELIN S12 ON THE REAR BUT FOUND IT TO BE TOO UNPREDICTABLE FOR THE 2 STROKE.

I used this tire as an entirely off-road tire on my Husky WR300 and have put hundreds of miles on it so far. It has held up to rocky terrain great. I would buy it again.

Awsome!
I mounted this tire on my 08 YZ450F and went riding on an outdoor national track where the tire did exceptionally well. This is a soft terrain tire but the track was hard pack and the tire cornered very well and grabbed plenty of bite. A very good tire for the money.
