Anyone Tried the Michelin Anakee Wild Tires?
on: January 24, 2021, 06:03:24 AM
I'm looking at new tires for my 2019 CB500X, and considering the Michelin Anakee Wild 50/50 tires.  Has anyone tried these?  It looks like I would have to go to a 150/70 on the rear since they don't have the 160/60 in this size.  Any suggestions?

Yes, got them on mine. Done about 2500 miles on them. Really pleased with them, good on the road and great off road. Wear wise the front is hardly worn after 2500 miles and the rear is I’d say half worn - but I’ll probably change the rear in another 1000 miles as there is little point having nobblies that are getting worn.

Only downside to them is a bit of vibration at motorway (highway) speeds.

This is on a 2019 bike with RR wheels.

Just to add that the rear is the 150/70. I wanted to use the 140 but for some reason they are different ply so ideally shouldn’t be mixed.
