Great set of tires for my Specialized Hybrid bike.

I am so happy that I found this website. I just finished riding RAGBRAI a couple of weeks ago. I had 1.95 tires on my hybrid bike and it was tough to ride longer distances. Bike Tires Direct made it very easy to find a solution. I plugged in my bike's info and up came a list of tires to choose from. I trained for 500 miles on these tires before riding 523 miles across the state of Iowa. Best of all, I had no flats and no problems. I also bought my tubes here. I love these tires.

Nice tire for road.

I have a 26 BMX PK Ripper that I ride around the neighborhood for exercise 90% of the time on the street. With these smooth tires my rolling resistance is greatly reduced. Just watch out for wet and sandy roads! These tires are quality made. No deformities and the center seam is perfectly aligned when properly mounted on a straight wheel. No wobbles, no balancing (uneven rubber distribution) or anything negative that I can say about these tires.

Fast tires

Can't beat it for the price. I had this on the rear wheel of a single speed MTB - got about 5000 miles before the innards unraveled. Great tire.

These tires are good for street riding, the only drawback is that the thickness of the bottom that meets the road.

Overall Good tires that have helped to increase my output per hours by 2.5 miles

Smooth ride a little fragile

Nice street riding tire. Only downside we've had is flats. I've fixed 2 flats from thorns. One looked like a briar sticker. The tires are fairly thin and light.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
