Model/Year: 26x2.10

Pros: Eh, they`re round.

Cons: These do not corner well in the loose stuff. (At all)

Recommendation: Sorry but I could not recommend to anyone I know. These came OEM on my Anthem and I couldn`t wait to get ridof them. This tire would be better suited to flat hard surfaces.

Model/Year: 2013

Pros: Good traction for loose over hardpack.
Seem durable so far.
Very large volume, can be run at surprisingly low pressure.
Smart directional tread.

Cons: A little hard to mount tubeless, even though they are tubeless ready.

Recommendation: These are a great tire for dry climates. they are fast rolling with good traction on loose over hard and rocks.

They can be a little tricky to seat for tubeless, to fix this, run them for a few miles with tubes.

Model/Year: Michelin Wild Race'r

Pros: Fast rolling
Great dry grip
Fairly lightweight

Cons: Not good for wet/slick conditions

Recommendation: I love these tires for dry conditions. They roll fast and grip really well. My first ride on these was a race where it poured rain. These don't work very well in wet/slick conditions. But for dry conditions, hold on! They're fast!

Pros: Dry-pack grip, roll, sidewalls, and tough tread.

Cons: Terrible grip on anything remotely slippery or flat.

Recommendation: Great if you get your tire pressure right, otherwise you will hate these. Hard-pack only, no mud. Just sold these after ripping right out of a perfectly good berm. Not my favorite.

Cons: Are they really that bad in rain conditions and on mud? I'm getting scared reading all these comments about it cause I just got then from local store(they were the only off-road model.
