Simple, uncomplicated tire.

I run my MTB mainly on the pavement. I once used the Michelin City tire on this bike, and liked it, but had repeated failures-sidewall tears, knots, etc. I never got to naturally wear one out. Also, they were extremely hard to mount. I switched to the Wild Run'R tire, and I really like it. It is easy to mount and the ride is very smooth. It handles and corners well. The only drawback is that I generally have to replace one after about 1700 miles. Still, they are cheap enough that I feel it is totally worth the ride quality and the lack of the hassle associated with the Michelin City tire.

These tire are awesome!

I ride a Gary Fischer tarpon mountain bike which come standard with Bontrager knobbies. Two years ago I relocated to Henderson NV and live right next to the Pittman wash no need for Knobbies here. The Michelin tires have literally turned my mountain bike into a incredible road bike. The ride is so smooth and the grip these slicks have are amazing. Lots of concrete and blacktop on this loop a little sand too no problems for these tires. They were also half the price of the road slicks REI carried.

Great Tires

These tire can't be beat for the price, so far no problems and they are a lot lighter and faster than my previously no brand named tires. They appear to be very sturdy also since I also ride them in the dirt from time to time. They are really built for speed though because I rode in the snow and ice once and traction wasn't all that great. But they weren't made fort that purpose so no complaints. All in all a great tire, I bought two sets.

Surprisingly good tires

I built my own version of a hybrid and I installed these tires for speed.I must say they are pretty fast and so far durable. The traction is fairly good but going fast I don't really care about traction, I calculate for speed during wet and icy conditions so stopping is never a problem. So far I'm very satisfied no issues to report.

Good MTB road slick

Replaced some Panaracer Urban Max tires with these, after the Panaracers started to to come apart around the bead. I also wanted something a little wider, but still capable of reasonably high pressure. I've had good luck with Michelin MTB tires in general and these are cheap, so I decided to try them.

So far, so good. Rolling resistance is decent and I've ridden through some broken glass without any visible damage to the tire. Only have a few hundred miles on them, but they seem to be wearing very little.

Gret tire , freat value and well made!

These tires are used for strictley city riding and they are very comfortable, relaible and low maintenance. I have bought several pairs for my bikes. Highly recommend and a tremendous value. The best tire ever was the Continental Touring model made in Germany with the maroon colored sidewalls. I would kill for those!

Trying something different

I have been putting between eight and fifteen miles daily on my mountain bike and decided to try a road type tire when the time came. I found these on sale and being cheap, I decided to try them. I couldn't be happier with my choice. The resistance is way down and the speed way up from the traditional tires I had been using. They also seem to wear very well. I am approaching three hundred miles on them and the casting seam in the center of the tire is still visible. I ride on multi use pathways and roads and as yet have had no flats. I will buy them again when they finally wear out.

Low rolling resistance tire

Put these on a MTB-frame urban bike i put together. Very low rolling resistance, makes hills seem easier. Gotta be real careful on the pressure though, I was running 45psi (seems reasonable???) but was getting tons of pinch flats on moderate speed curb hops. Not acceptable in an urban bike. Running higher now which translates to a rougher ride on broken seattle pavement but so far no flats.

Great tire, fast roller and more durable then expected.

I bought these and installed them on my Trek mountain bike, it turned it into a rocket! Very smooth riding setup that is proving to be very durable.

Slick fast tire.

I use the tires to buzz around town. Seem durable and grip well for a tire that doesn't have grooves.

Really like these tires

Got these for my mountain bike mainly to use on a training stand. Very quiet and smooth. Would also use these for non trail riding.

Most reasonable price for a very fast tire.

Ride remains like you're on a mountain bike, comfortable that is. But these tires made my Trek 8000 mountain bike accelerate almost as fast as my Specialized Roubai and can maintain 20 mph easily (replaced 9 speed cassette to 11-26). Changing front ring gears to say 30-38-48 would make this bike perform as well as road bikes. I ride 20-30 miles 5X a week and these tires are just a revaluation. I would like to try the 1.1 inch width Wild Run'R Tire. Probably even a faster tire but a bit more expensive. These are the greatest all around.

Great road tire for your mountain bike!

Wanted to use an older mountain bike as a winter trainer on the road. Chose these tires and couldn't be happier. Running at 80 psi the rolling resistance is low and the ride is very smooth and quiet. Highly recommend for your 26 inch wheels.

Michelin Wild Run'R Tire

These tires have totally met all my expectations. They have been very puncture resistant. At first I thought they were really too thin and lite. They are really fast, I mean fast. These tires were easy to install. Both tires I purchased were made true and straight, no wobble. I have 200 miles on them so far. I have accidentally ran over shards of glass and sharp rock and yet to have any problems. My overall speeds went up enough that I purchased a new cassette with lower gears and now travel 5mph faster at cruising speed than original mountain bike tires. Cannot beat the sale price. Very Happy so far, many more miles will tell more me about reliability.

Amazing tires for Mountain bikes.

These tires are amazing when you ride your mountain bike on paved roads. I don't bother with my road bike anymore because the mountain bike with the Michelin Wild Run'R tires is more comfortable to ride and the rolling resistance on pave roads seems about the same. I was worried on dirt trails that the no-tread tires may slip on gravel, but they don't. I am a believer.

Great tire for the street. My mountain bike was faster, easy to steer, and smoother. Stop wasting away your good mountain bike tires when you can have it all for very little money.
