Choose a tire that's as extreme as your ride. The Wild Rock'R2 benefits from reinforced technology, which in turn lends itself to smooth braking, superb grip, and a tough, puncture-resistant skin. Massive rubber blocks create a meaty tread pattern that handles stress better than Zoloft, and a bold, claw-shaped shoulder pattern snags traction on loose slopes and otherwise treacherous conditions. A central groove gives this tire all the directional stability you'll need to stay on track.
For optimum performance, MICHELIN recommends using their GUM-X compound on the rear tire, and their MAGI-X compound on the front.

- In order to use Michelin Tubeless Ready tires as tubeless tires, you must use a tubeless/sealant kit, which is sold separately.
Going tubeless allows you to run lower tire pressures without the added weight of a tube. Lower tire pressure has many benefits, including greater traction, lower rolling resistance over rough surfaces, and decreased risk of a puncture-related flat.
Tubeless-ready rims and tires are parts of a complete system that eliminate the need for tubes by creating an airtight chamber between the rim and tire. Liquid sealant is added to the chamber to fill small punctures and maintain air pressure while you ride.
UST (Universal Standard for Tubeless) is a specific type of tubeless system that dictates the shape of the rim and tire beads. UST rims should be paired with UST-specific tires for best results.
