The Fastest And Most Affordable Michelin Touring Tire

The Michelin Country Rock 26 Inch Tire is a versatile and puncture-resistant tire that transitions effortlessly from asphalt to dirt without a hiccup.

Its tightly packed, super low profile knobs create a tire that rolls almost as smoothly as a slick tread on the road but also provides more traction than a slick on dirt surfaces. The more pronounced edge knobs on the Michelin Country Rock offer better cornering off-road. The tread is also very puncture-resistant and long-wearing. Suffice it to say, for the cost, you are getting a lot of bang for your buck.

The ample siping in this tire makes it excel at gripping in wet conditions when other tires would fling you off the bike.

If you are looking for a bicycle tire to get you from point A to point B, whether you be traveling on gravel, tarmac, or hardpacked singletrack, the Michelin Country Rock is the tire for you.

Features

  • Fast-rolling, yet grippy tread
  • Tightly packed, super low profile knobs
  • Ideal for tarmac, gravel, hardpack singletrack, an everything in between
  • Lightweight: 560 grams
  • Puncture resistant casing
  • Clincher wire bead
  • 73 maximum PSI

Awesome for Road and Dirt

We ride on a mixture of asphalt and graveldirt and the Michelin Country Rock is perfect for both. I bought a pair for my son and my wife and then I changed out these on my vintage Bridgestone mountain bike too. These nice looking tires are a much smoother ride on asphalt (than with my old mtb knobby tires), with good grip in dirt and gravel. Great deal through Western Bike Works too!

I put these on my KHS Mountain bike that had Cheng Shin knobbies on it which were good too, but these are so much nicer in that they have way less drag, yet work great on dirt trails and hard surfaces. I am 62 and NOT a super aggressive rock-hopper, just nice Rails-To-Trails type riding with some street too. My old bones like the full suspension KHS bike and soft ride these tires deliever, just don't run the max 73 PSI, try 50-60 PSI. Great tires from a great source, Western Bike Works, they rock, so do the tires. Oh that's right, Country Rock, oh yeah!

Good tire, low rolling resistance, good price, but soft compound can lead to flats.

I used this tire on the rails-to-trails system, with crushed limestone surface.

The tire has very low rolling resistance, and has just a bit of bite on this surface, so perfect in those respects.

It's very flexible, and easy to install on the bike rims, without tools, which is great for fixing flats in the field.

Unfortunately the rubber is very soft and i got a cut in the main tread after perhaps 6 rides. Sharp rock ?

The cut was 12 wide and forced me to pitch the tire, while still new.

Never got a flat on this trail, in 3 years of riding there, prior to this.

That being said i've purchased a replacement for it.

They were on sale, which helped me make up my mind.

Have not installed it yet.

I purchased a more robust set of tires (harder thicker) while waiting for the replacement to come.

I purchased a second set of these tires when I replaced my Raleigh after the other bicycle was stolen. I ride a M60 for pavement and hard trails off road. M60 is no longer available but i found one that was nos. These tires are superior to keeping the knobby tires that come stock with the bike and others like it. I cannot add anything I don't like as the feed back instructions request. I am completely satisfied and i believe others would be too.

I prefer to use the WTB Gravel tires in the winter, but they were sold out and I tried these instead. My riding consists of wet and dry pavement, grass, and light dirty spots (single track, non-racing), and general city commutes. I'm impressed and have no complaints. I got a slightly wider tire to run lower pressure, and this thing really feels nice. It helps confidence in fast sections of my commute in the rain or slow places where I cross grassy wet fields.

No Flats

Before getting these tires and matching Michelin C4 tubes I had two flats in two weeks. With these tires and tubes I've had no flats in 2,000 miles of bike trails, gravel, rocks, and occasional dirt.

I replaced 2.1" MTB tires. These are definitely better for the type of riding I do. The somewhat rounded 1.75" rides well on all surfaces. I haven't had any traction issues on gravel or damp asphalt. I'd like to try something similar in a 1.65" or maybe even a 1.5", but if you're on MTB tires and looking for something a bit more gravel/adventure-friendly, these tires are highly recommended.

Best way to turn a mountain bike into a street bike. Fast rolling and great puncture resistance. Surprisingly high traction rubber and great tread. When commuting on asphalt gets monotonous, this tire is perfect for the trails on the long way home.

These replaced the balloon 2.5" tires on my bmx cruiser that were just too slow. The narrower 1.75", high psi, and grippy tread are optimal. Price was good too, very pleased.

For what I got, I'm stunned at the low price. I replaced some old knobby tires on a MTB that I inherited and hated. Now I love it and I'm using it as a bad weathertouring bike for the days I don't want to risk using my road bike. I made four different enhancements to make the MTB a better street performer, but these tires have proven to be the 1 difference maker. I've taken them through some short patches of rough gravel and they handled it well. They obviously do well on wet grass, which they see a lot of. No problem cornering on pavement in the rain, I have a lot of confidence in them. Fully inflated they pose much lower rolling resistance than I had before, I've had no problem hitting 30mph, which is a big deal for me. Drop the pressure to 40 psi and you'll get a really soft, comfortable ride, if that's what you want.

Fast rolling tire for pavement and hardpack
rating
by John

2 of 2 customers found this review helpful.

I've been riding these tires for over a year now, got them when I purchased a used steel frame rigid MTB from my local bike shop. These tires are fantastic! I run 60psi for the pavement and drop it down to 45psi for rougher dirt and gravel roads. They roll very easily on pavement, and are incredibly light compared to other 26x1.75 tires. Traction on hardpack dirt is great too. Handling starts to get sketchy in mud or wet sand though.

My only issue with these tires is the lack of puncture protection. The tread tends to pick up road debris in the grooves, and on several occasions I had a small piece of glass puncture the tire. A set of heavy duty tubes and a tire liner for the rear eliminated flats. Overall a great tire for using an old MTB as a commuter.

Best tire for the road

Fort Myers, FL

I ride city streets and sidewalks 15-20 miles every day and these Country Rock tires still have the look of fairly new even months of that amount of use. Over the years I have had several pairs of Michelin tires and all held up extremely well with not only

Tread wear but puncture resistance s well... Cost for some may be an issue but trust me when I say theyre worth every single penny. I TRUST MICHELIN!

Low rolling resistance, handles pretty high pressure, grippy rubber. reasonably light, carefully made. What's not to like? The junker bike I ride to work just got a lot easier to pedal. For 50% of the original msrp, I'm not too worried about it if these tires don't last forever. As others have pointed out, they may not resist flats as well as a more expensive tire with a kevlar layer. I'll take that chance though as my rides are on pretty good roads and close to home.

I fully expected to buy Kenda Kwest 193s (which the local bike share uses, very good very tough tires!), but then I saw these, and I've never been disappointed by Michelins, so that's what I got.

No regrets!

Incredibly low rolling resistance compared to the old knobby tires, yet still provides enough traction on grass and soft dirt. At maximum PSI these tires do great on the road, at normal/average PSI they soften out the rough spots-take your pick. Sidewall is a little thin and flimsy, so I wouldn't recommend going much below 50 PSI, my tube got pinched on some rough gravel.

Changed out deep aggressive knobby tires on my wife's Cannondale for something a little less aggressive and considerably less rolling resistance so the gal doesn't have to pedal her behind off. Well, her bike isn't quite a hybrid quite yet! These work perfectly for sidewalk riding and some light trail use. I wouldn't have go down a single track with these, but if you need to turn that monster, ahhhhh..... mountain (LOL), bike into something a little less mountainy and a little more streety, then these will work well and are priced right. I'm considering adding them to my Gary Fisher Tassajara as I'm not riding as much dirt mud trails much these days either, but I don't mind the extra pedal power required for the knobs, I need the exercise...LOL.
