Michelin Anakee Wild
« on: March 29, 2017, 07:53:12 am »
Anybody here that's tried one?
I need to replace my rear and this tyre seems to give descent milage?
I don't want a Heidi again and a Karoo 3 doesn't give that much milage either?
Any suggestions?

I have done about 1200km on a set.
My opinion: Better than a Heidi on wet tar (probably doesn't take much). Much better than a Heidi in the dirt. Can not comment about km's yet, but man are they loud on tar! They should be sold with a set of earplugs.  :biggrin:

First knobs that i have on so cant comment on others. I wear earplugs so noise is not a problem. 2000km so far and still looks good. Most was done on gravel.

Very mixed results on these tyres on BMW Club website etc. Somethign thats good about them are that they are Radial. But Michelin says don't air them down - it's made to ride offroad inflated but the reports on doing this is bad...people air them down and then they seem to have issues.
Also ask Chris from Flying Brick about it..they have had some experience.
My main concern is that it looks like the tread pattern we get in RSA differes from the tread pattern in all the online reviews.
Michelins as far as I'm aware never got back to Chris about this.
I was going to go for them but I reckon I'll just fit Karoo3 when the time comes.

There are reasons why manufacturers say certain thing eg not airing down. They manufacture the tire. I keep mine same for tar and gravel 2.2 F and 2.8 R.

Ek het Wilds 'n rukkie terug op my 1200 gc lc gesit, sover omtrent 800 km's gedoen, ongelukkig alles op teer. Hulle is baie lawaaierig op 80 km/uur, maar raak al hoe stiller totdat dit op 140 - 150 heeltemal stil is. Baie beter as die karoo 3's, wat 'n onhoudbare skree geluid maak wat al hoe erger word hoe vinniger jy ry, teen 160 voel dit of jou kop wil ontplof.

Depends on your riding style and what roads you take....people hype about TKC 70 good all round.

For me...i avoid tar as far as possible and plan my rides to the next section of gravel. I like what im getting at this moment from Wilde tannie annetjie

Dit bly 'n moeilike besluit die bande.......
Karoo 3's het my ook mal gemaak met hulle geraas.
Anakee's doen goed maar soms kort mens net daai bietjie meer grip.........as jy gewoond is aan hulle en nie elke dag sand,modder of klip ry nie dink ek doen hulle die job (daar het ek seker nou my eie vraag beantwoord lol).
Daai TKC's lyk belowend ook en die Scorpion dink ek is maar min of meer soos die Anakee's...........
Ek sal maar 'n vuur aansteek vanaand,paar biere drink en loitjies trek om te sien watter band ek volgende sal probeer.......

As jy besluit op die Wilds sal ek baie belangstel n wat jy van hulle dink.
Ek is nog "On the fence" maar ek het nou die diag ingestap by Donford en het met n fellow GS rider gepraat wat sy 1 trip oue Wilds afgehaal het en ander bande laat opsit het.
Hy was glad nie happy met hulle nie.
Dan op Youtube sien jy nou weer reports waar die mense baie happy is.

Ek WILL hulle like. Die radials en als maak baie sin vir die 1200. Maar mens wil nou nie dit terrible he op die grondpad want jy kan nie afblaas nie... en ek verstaan dat hulel gemaak is om nie af te blaas nie en dat die middel deel gemaak is om te flex. maar wat die mense wat hulle nou gehad het se hulle hou nie daarvan nie.

Anyway, hier is die BMW Clup thread.

Great grip in the wet, watch the pressures, I find 2.3F and 2.8R works best, lower felt not so good (for me anyway)
I've done about 4k so far, quite a lot of it on tar, and at decent speeds, wear looks nominal.
Someone said they are loud, they are, very LOUD.

I have done 5000km on a set on my 2017 GSA - 50/50 gravel/tar.  Rear is at the end of it's life.

The good:  Excellent off-road grip.  Better mileage than K3 & TKC.
The bad:  Very noisy.  Wobbly at high speed.

Edit:  Used around 2.7bar on tar and 2.0bar on gravel.

Flip n coin. Hoeveel ry jy en hoe laank gaan hulle hou. 6 vd een en half dosyn van die ander.

Een stel gaan dalk n trip langer hou as die ander.

+- 17000- 20 000km n jaar.
Maar jy is reg.

Hi Francois

Ek het 'n stel op my LC.

Hulle grip baie goed voor en agter en voel vir my beter as die TKC op die teerpad. Ek dink nie ek gaan meer as 4500-5000km sien op agterband nie, maar ek het hulle nie opgesit vir kilos nie.

Goeie grip is vir my belangriker omdat ek verkies om grondpad te ry en bietjie soos 'n hooligan ry meeste van die tyd as ek op grond kom.

Wat ek wel ondervind het:
1. Hulle raas vir my meer as die TKC bande
2. Voorband laat die bike bietjie dwaal (wobble) op teerpad as hy nuut is, maar dit wil lyk of dit minder raak soos band inloop.

Ek sal dalk die voorband met TKC  vervang as sy tyd kom en weer 'n wild agter opgooi.

Cheers :thumleft:

Dankie vir al die input.....
So ek neem aan 'n karoo 3 is die beter opsie wat geraas betref,kms is min of meer dieselfde,
Eks al so gewoond aan die Anakee 3 en hy het eintlik oorgenoeg grip op gewone grondpad,dis maar net sand,modder en klip waar hy nie lekker grip nie.
As ek dan so daaraan dink ry ek in die 8000 km wat ek op 'n Anakee 3 kry seker 4000km grondpad,so eintlik bly die Anakee 3 dan maar die antwoord vir durability en waarde vir geld.Vir die ander paar keer moet ek oŽ toeknyp en die regterhand draai dan kom ek anyway anderkant uit net met bietjie meer moeite as met 'n growwer band.

Hoekom probeer jy nie n tkc80 voor met die anakee 3 agter nie?

Ek is nogsteeds tussen die Karoo3's en die Wilds.
