    Sorry, no idea. I asked the same (need 90/90-21 and 150/70-18) and they only said they "should" receive more tires form Michelin tomorrow...

    Care to give us some riding impressions? Need to order some new TKCs for the GSA but these might be an option if the get stateside in the next few weeks. Thanks.

    Subscribing to hear riding reports. Curious about the mileage. Had high hopes for the Karoo 3 but obviously they can't manage even 5000 miles

    +1. Anything I own and has wheels, it runs on Michelin.
    My new GSA comes with Anakee and want the wild.

    I'm not so sure about their arrival in the US. The US version of Michelin's website has NO information about an Anakee Wild on it. I think it would at least be mentioned if its release here was soon.

    A bit more stylized and it would be a bot reply.
    This is the reply that comes from the guy they put to reply to everything and doesn't know anything.
    I wonder if you can actually escalate the question to someone actually having real info (for anything not mentioned in the site).

    I called the 866 number, I was told as of now there is no plan to bring them state side.

    That's a shame...

    Ok, you're not getting my business and I'm choosing Continental because you're not interested in selling me the product I want. :flip

    +1 :rofl 4800 miles and already a punctured rear tire! I replaced it with a Tourance, but I preferred the Anakee 3, just couldn't get one in time... I'd love to find a 60/40 or even a 70/30 tire made from titanium and carbon fiber... Freaking choices seem so limited for this bike... I'm a beggar and a chooser, now what?

    I think i have found the sweet spot for the noise on A3, its 2.1 bar for the front. If you can avoid that spot they are no different than other tires. I have not had noise from the rear tire from 2.2-3.0 bar.

    Which tire are we discussing here? The thread is about Michelin Wild's, a knobby tire..there are a mess of off topic responses about Anakee 3's..? Did Wilds every come available here?

    Anakee 3's have their own thread..

    Cheers

    No not the Anakee 3s I am actually on my 2nd set of those so I know all about them. I am interested in the Wilds. Need a knobby and the Heidis didn't last that long for me. Possibly due to sizing difference for the new GSW vs the non liquid GS.

    They were never released in the US but I have seen posts of people in Australia and South America getting their hands on them. I am currently in the Philippines so getting from Australia would be easy.

    If you can't get a hold of the Wilds, try the Metzeler Karoo 3
    I'm happy with the K3 both on and off road.
