I have been a long time user of Michlin S12's. Recently bought new ones and noticed some new things. First I noted that there were no directional arrows as before, then as I mounted them, I noted they were harder to mount, much stiffer side walls. Looking the tires over I noted that these were made in Thiland not Spain as were previous tires. Anyone have a clue?
Dwight, Have you ever tried the special front tires made for mud ie: Bridgestone M-25 Mud/Sand or Maxxis Maxx Cross S/M.? I've seen them on some of the AA riders bikes in extreme mud conditions and have heard they work well.
