    Strength:

    This is a great on/offroad tire with variable PSI adjustments. It is very smooth on asphalt and kicks butt on offroad terrian. Great price for a Michelin product!!!!

    Weakness:

    On loose gravel and slippery mudd the tire does not perform well. This is do to the fact that it is an on/offroad tire, and the tread is softer so the spikes aren't as deep to really give it bite.

    Michelin has really made a great product here!!!! This tire has awesome PSI adjustments (35-80PSI) to give you the ultimate ride on the road or off the road. While it lacks a more aggressive pattern to give it bite offroad. It will tackle most offroad terrain and still give you a baby butt smooth ride on asphalt. For all around use I would keep the PSI at 50. On offroad days I would bring her down to 35PSI for maximum traction. Crank it up to 80PSI and you will turn your mountain bike into a street machine giving you a silk smooth ride all day long. If you are like me and need a tire that you can ride on the street and then take it offroad. Look no futher than the Michelin Wildgripper Country.

    Strength:

    Personally my favorite front Street Tire ever.
    Handles extremely well on pavement...AS LONG As you have a semi slick 2.1 tire in the rear to match.

    Weakness:

    NONE!

    I like to take turns with dangerous lean and this tire has kept my bike under control at low and high speed cornering. Some are amazed at the lean angle I am able to perform with my bike. I am happy. Sport Bikes: take that!

    Strength:

    speed, excelent curving, smooth ride

    Weakness:

    NONE!!

    When you go faster then 45 - 50 kmh on pavement, they hush and make no noise (using 70-80 PSI). Great speed tires but good for allroad crossing. The best experience Ive had on wet asphalt - Wildgripper really grips!
