    Has anyone tried the Michelin HP4 front and rear?
    I ride a 08 CRF450R, race enduros and hare scrambles in the A class. I have always run 756's and MS3's but the front doesn't do great in real hard packed conditions. I'm looking for a review on this fairly new tire.

    I like Michelin MH3's

    12-14 psi.

    They last a very long time and work in a lot of
    conditions even though they are for Hard packed.
