    Michelin Wild Race'R 29'er Tyre

    CRC sells these for less than $30.

    Does anyone have any experience with them?
    They are a fastrolling XC tyre, but how are they compared to other fastrolling XC tyres, like Race King, Racing Ralph, Crossmark etc?
    How do they setup tubeless?

    I've got a buddy who runs them. Set up easy on Crests, roll pretty well, a bit vague in transition. Looks like a good training tire. He races on Racing Ralphs. Good deal but in my view not on the same level of the Race King, Racing Ralph, or the Ikons I run.

    I run them on my SS. They are good long lasting tires. Great tough sidewalls. Pretty good tread. If you have a clearance issue beware... They are closer than a 2.3 than a 2.1... it's larger than a 2.2 Saguaro.

    To speak to their durability. The one on the rear of my SS is 2 years old and still solid. And that particular bike gets about 50 miles a week all year long.

    Yeah they blow up fat , the 2.1 is about as wide as the 2.4 conti MKing I have up front.
    I would reccomend them tubeless as lower pressure seems to work better.
    A nice fast rear tire !

    That's why I use them on my SS... She's a rough girl and the Racers can be run pretty low, helps take the edge off.

    Thanks a lot, seems like a good rear partner to my lonely Crossmark tyre.

    I liked it a lot as a rear tire - rolls FAST and works pretty well on most smoother trail conditions. Was not impressed with it on rocky stuff - took a good fall on a steep climb when the rear tire let go like ice. I thought it would wear like iron - Michelin tend to last pretty long. I overall (except the slipping on the rocks) liked it set up with a 2.25 Racing Ralph on the front.
