Bought M45 3.25x18 and Michelin Gazelle M62 3x18 (shopkeeper said its ment for front rim)but i have doubt on them whether they are originals or not as the logo of Michelin is bit different, tomorrow ill put the pics.
Confused that where i can use them as they are good enough to fit in RD, CBZ and RXZ as well.

Its fake , guys what would be the correct upsize for a fiero , i am too looking at the m45's coz ever since i got my fiero converted to 200cc its a bit scary to ride to bike on stock tyres .

The tire guy seems to be running (is that fake?) could you please post the picture of the text Michelin in the tire maybe that helps.

Ill check the M45 which i bought from Sai Iyengar for the logo as the text Michelin is same in all 3 tyres, all are made in Thailand even speed ratings max load deatils are written in same way, but cant say the perfection of these days copy cats.

Cool. I've seen running Michelin Man's logo on some of their ads, if he said that based on the logo then it can't be a fake.
