Okay so several weeks later, I am here to edit. I finally caved and mounted these up with tubes. As anticipated, these tires/ tread pattern are great. They accelerate really fast, climb great, have a predictable slide, and they grip like a sombitch. I set a few PR's on my first ride with them. now that they had a tube in for a bit, I will try to go tubeless when I get a flat. oh yeah, I even had a piece of cactus stuck to the sidewall twice and I didn't flat. I really like Michelin tires. I have had a few types and they are ride really well. I am sold on the Wild AM and Force AM. they will likely be my go-to tires for my trail bikes. original post below I took off a Maxxis DHR2 TR and tried to mount this tire on the same RaceFace AR tubeless ready rim. It reminded me of when tubeless tires were first coming out. It would not seat on the rim. After losing half the sealant all over the garage and was ready to break shit, I put the Maxxis back on. I don't know what to do. Maybe they just won't work on this rim. I have a set of Michellin Force AM that mounted right up to a different rim.

Grip for days
- I've put it through the wringer
Review is on behalf of my wife who has been riding these tires. She is 150 lbs and a pretty aggressive rider. The Wild AM has been an excellent tire so far. The tread pattern kind of resembles a motocross front tire . The tread pattern and sticky rubber compound work together to offer superior grip in all conditions. Everything from hard pack to greasy mud I've been impressed by the grip. Most of my time was spent on dry and loose conditions where the tire excelled. Durability and puncture resistance were a concern since this is relatively light for an aggressive tire at 800 grams. After 4 months of abuse and countless jagged rocks scraping the sidewall this thing is still holding air. My favorite thing about this tire is how smoothly it transitions to the cornering knobs. Mounted on a 29mm internal width rim this tire has a pretty round shape which helps the transition to the side knobs feel seamless when you're leaning into corners.
