Michelin Anakee 3 Tires The replacement for the crowd favorite Anakee 2 tires has arrived! Michelin has vastly improved the Anakee in many ways including wear, feedback and wet weather performance. The Michelin Anakee 3 Tires are a further blend of long tread life, balance and rugged adventure. Features Performance that lasts mile after mile with a new silica tread compound yields even more mileage compared to MICHELIN Anakee 2 tires Innovative tread pattern inhibits irregular wear patterns, while evacuating water, dirt and mud Transverse grooves efficiently evacuate water for dependable wet-weather grip Beveled lateral grooves help shed mud and gravel when riding off-road Enhanced ride qualities and tire architecture engineered for easy maneuverability and precise handling Amazing stability and rider feedback, thanks to a new high-rigidity casing Indented tread grooves help to provide consistent lateral grip even as the tire wears Excellent wet traction and an innovative silica tread compounds offer the best balance between grip and durability Distinctive tread pattern pulls water away from the contact patch Note Anakee 3 tires are Bias Ply unless otherwise noted (e.g. 110/80R19 59H is a Radial Tire). TT indicates Tube Type Tire.

Loved the A2, bummed when discontinued but tried the A3 because of the "promises". Rear wears about the same at 4500 but it's squaring and never happened on the A2. I can squeeze a few more miles out of the rear. The front of the A3 is toast now. I got about 10K miles on the A2 front so this is really bad. Same tire pressures, riding conditions etc on both the A2 and A3.
Pavement performance was better but nervous on tire snakes. The little bit of off roading I do on this bike #08GSA#, the A3 sucked. Going to give Metz Next a try. Mich...bring back the A2!!!!
No, I do not recommend this product.
