Video Reviews
Hey guys this is Reuben with Competition Accessories and welcome to our video review of the all new Michelin Pilot Road 4 tires. This tire is replacing the Pilot Road 3, falls right into that sport touring category that is ever increasingly popular. Everything from pure sport bike guys who are looking for a higher mileage tire that are going to last longer than a super sport tire to guys on big touring bikes. Now the Pilot Road 3s were one of the most innovative tire technologies we have seen in terms on how they have actually designed the tread and how it performed in wet weather conditions. The Pilot Road 4 is taking those similar design approaches and incorporating some other unique features into the tires to give them exceptional wet weather performance while also increasing the tire life. They have actually gone with a Silica infused rubber compound on these tires and they are claiming that they are going to last 20% longer than the Pilot Road 3s did which is a significant improvement if you consider what 20% percent means over the life of the tire. So you might be paying a little bit more for a tire but getting a tire that is going to perform well and last a long time and your going to stretch those dollars a little bit further even though the initial investment is higher. Now looking at the actual tread pattern they have actually changed it quite a bit from the Pilot Road 3. They still use what they call their XST Sipe technology, that is the tiny little sipes you see with these reservoirs dotted throughout the tire and those help clear water away from the tread and they give the tire a good contact patch when it is wet out. They have done something unique on the front tire they are calling it the XST Plus which are these cross sipes that run across along the tread which is very similar to what we saw on the Pilot Road 3s. They provide very god wet weather performance very good braking especially on all kinds of surfaces. But one thing that was always a bit of concern when you have all these sipes in the tread of a tire is even wear. When your under a high load in a corner your flexing each bit of rubber individually since there is basically cuts in the tread in those areas. What Michelin has done in those areas is they have actually reduced the square edge on both sides they are more rounded off if you will. So when it does flex it is not going to wear at uneven rates between the leading edge and the trailing edge. So these are designed to wear very evenly. Over the link of the life of the tire which is very nice. Now these tires are also going to be available in three different versions and that is definitely something you want to be aware of. The standard version is going to be fantastic for most middle weight bikes whether your on a sport bike or something like a Ninja 650 or a sport touring bike that is in the lighter weight category. If your on a larger bike then you are going to go with something called the GT version, which they use a different type of construction method in the rear tire and it kind of combines bias ply and radial tire technologies to give you a more stiff carcase for a big touring bike or if you are riding two up you are going to need something that is a little bit stiffer to give you better stability on the road so its actually going to be standard equipment on the BMW 1200 RT for example. So if you are riding a big touring bike like that you might want to look for the GT Version. Last but not least there is going to be a trail version as well despite it being called a trail version it is a 100% on road tire but it is designed for large adventure touring bikes which are going to be spending all their time on the pavement. If you have something like the Big BMW 1200 GS Adventure or any other large adventure touring bikes then this tire is going to be the one you want to go with. Now the tread in the trail version does use the softer compound in the rear. Now these are a dual-compound tire whether you get the standard or the GT or the trail version. But the difference with the trail version is they use the same softer compound in the front also in the rear. On the standard and GT versions you actually have a softer compound on the front, the sides are going to be the softest of all. Then the center on the rear is going to be harder than the center on the front on the standard and the GT version. What that does is it provides a very even wear pattern across or along the tire itself. These tires have been tested from 23 degrees Fahrenheit to over a 113 degrees Fahrenheit so they have definitely done their homework to make sure they are going to perform in all types of weather conditions. Obviously the biggest point of focus on the Pilot Road 4s is the wet weather performance and they will do very well.

Information and Details about the Michelin Pilot Road 4 GT Tires - 2CT Dual Compound - Rear
made by Michelin
The Michelin Pilot Road 4 GT tire uses Patented 2AT technology to provide maximum stability for GT-class bikes with the same new technologies featured on the Pilot Road 4, including the same tread pattern. A stiffer casing provides extra stability for GT-class bikes and 2-up riding with luggage.

The new industry standard for all-around sport touring use, the Michelin Pilot Road 4 has superior wet-weather braking performance compared to the leading competitive sport touring tires on both pavement and slippery surfaces, and lasts 20% longer than Michelin's top selling Pilot Road 3 tires in results from the 2013 third-party commissioned tests conducted at the Dektra Test Centre in Ladoux France. The Pilot 4 also grips the road across a wide range of riding conditions and temperature ranges (23 F to 113F).

Stops Faster
Thanks to the new XST+, new Michelin Pilot Road 4 tires stop faster on wet roads than the leading competitive sport touring tires. In fact, third party commissioned tests prove it. The new Michelin Pilot Road 4 stopped 17% shorter than the leading sport touring tire competitors on wet pavement and 24% shorter on a wet slippery surface. All of which means, riding in the rain on Pilot Road 4 tires should feel more safe and more secure, and a lot less stressful.

  • The patented sipes and integrated reservoirs of Michelin's XST X-Sipe technology deliver exceptional grip on roads
  • Michelin developed XST+ that includes cross sipes to help improve wet weather braking, and adds chamfers to the sipes to help prevent abnormal wear under extreme conditions
  • New tread patterns were also developed for both front and rear to optimize wet and dry grip at all lean angles, and to promote uniform wear

    Grips the road in all conditions
    All new silica-charged rubber compounds were developed for the Michelin Pilot Road 4 tire. These compounds are specially formulated to provide excellent grip from 23°F to 113­°F on a wide range of road surfaces, including painted lines and crosswalks, making it easier than ever for you to ride with confidence in virtually all conditions.

    Lasts longer
    Thanks to 2CT technology, the new Michelin Pilot Road 4 tires lasts up to 20% longer than Michelin Pilot Road 3 tires. Over the long run, that adds up to fewer tire changes and a lower total cost of ownership.

  • The new Michelin Pilot Road 4 tires feature 2CT, dual compound technology with 100% silica compounds for the optimum balance between wet grip and longevity
  • The harder center compounds are designed to help promote a long tire life while the softer shoulder compounds provide extra grip when cornering

    2AT provides extra stability for heavier loads
    Whether you are riding your GT-class bike solo, 2-up or with luggage, you will appreciate the added stability provided by Michelin's new 2AT technology, your heavy touring bike will feel sable and secure in both straight line and cornering situations.

  • Michelin's patented new 2AT Dual Angle Technology is a revolutionary design architecture for motorcycle tires that delivers the stiffness you need for heavier touring bikes, and the comfort you desire for the long ride
  • 2AT uniquely combines elements of both bias and radial tire designs during the manufacturing process in order to deliver the best of both worlds: the extra load carrying capacity of bias and the riding pleasure of a radial.

    Michelin Pilot 4 GT - Silverfox   AZ Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: High quality tire, feels solid ,
    Cons: Price

    Installed on 2008 Kawasaki 1400 Concours, replaced Michelin Power 2 CT which had 14000 miles, very happy with the power 2 CT. 4 GT have a solid feel and good turn iniatiation. I have been riding for 50 yrs. I use the bike more as a touring bike rather than a canyon carver most rides are 200 miles with our riding group in southern Arizona. Thus have not had the misfortune of having to ride in the rain so no comments here. Will be riding down to Cabo San Lucas in January 3,000 miles and will get a better chance to review the tires. Was looking for a good grip and tire life, I believe the GT 's will deliver.I was disappointed with the amount of time it took to receive these tires from Competition Accesories. The online order said in stock but when I followed up a week later. I was advised that the only had one tire in stock and the other tire was being shipped from to them from their distributor 3 days to them and apparently at least 4 more days to Arizona. The tires were being shipped with a set of brake pads. Which were desperately needed. I was advised that CSS new policy is to consolidate orders before shipping thus delay I asked that the brake pads be shipped immediately. I was advised that they would call their distribution, but the pads were received with the tires 10 days after ordering. I have ordered lots of tires from CSS and others and have always had them within 3 days, and never more tha 5 days for clothes helmets and other items. I have since ordered Elite 4 for my other ride from Wing Stuff and the tires were ordered on Wednesday and delivered on Friday. CSS you have dropped the ball. The length of time was not the issue, the holding the shipment with out contacting or advising was unsatisfactory. In the end I had to return the brake pads because they only sent One pair. I ordered from E bay had them in 2 days. CSS were great with the return. The website did not make it clear that you need to order 2 sets of pads even though it shows A 1400 in the picture with dual discs.

    The best tires I have used on an RT. Excellent traction wet or dry. Easily 10K plus miles on rear before changing. Comp Acess. Shipped to me in 2-days.Would purchase again when needed.

    Impressive order processing - Doug   GA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great tire
    Cons: non

    Totally blown away with the quick response and delivery of my order. I placed my order online Sat. The tire was delivered to my door early the next Tues. morning. This is the fastest I've ever received an order unless it was shipped overnite. Plus the shipping was FREE

    great tire - Michelin Pilot Road 4 GT   IA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: relatively long-lasting, good grips well wet or dry, easy to mount
    Cons: [None]

    I've used PR4s for a couple years. Seem to wear well. Relatively easy to mount yourself, compared to some other tires. Seem sot have good wet grip, although I don't push it hard in the rain.

    Really Good Tire - Chris W Tx   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Outstanding rain tire and superior dry grip
    Cons: None

    Purchased a set of PR 4 GT's for a BMW F800GT for a trip to Florida, up the eastern seaboard, and into Nova Scotia. I was gone 24 days and encountered rain on 14 of them. Not one time did these tires ever try to slip out, or in anyway give the impression that I needed to slow down. The tires are the absolute best wet weather tire I have ever ridden on. On dry pavement, the tires are comfortable and handled less than ideal road conditions in Canada with ease. A very harsh winter did a number on them. I totaled 7000 miles on the trip and the rear is just starting to show a little cupping and the fronts look brand new with no cupping and tons of tread left. Total mileage so far is 8200 miles. I have 5 days in Arkansas coming up that will probably finish the rear. I will definitely be putting on another pair of PR 4s.

    I like my PR4-GT - Gilles G   CA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Good grip, long lasting tite
    Cons: NA

    This is a great tire. I cam from a PR3, which was also very grippy, but the PR4 is even better.It is very predictable, and so far it has not disappointed me on my 201 RT.My previous PR4 had a puncture that I patched and I used that tire for another 4k miles at which time it was due for a replacement

    Like a new bike - dave bullock   WI Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: price, amazing fast shipping
    Cons: [None]

    I picked up a 2007, BMW RTP retired police bike with 39K miles. It rode well for the most part but 'threw' me into turns. I replaced the older tires with Michelin Pilot tires, and it's like a new bike. Cornering is now up to me, not the tires. Seems to hold well in turns, have had only a slight sprinkle so no history in the rain. I couldn't believe how quickly they were shipped Thanks

    PR4GT great tire - STrider   IA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes

    I've used these for a couple years for local and long-distance travel. 9-10k miles on the rear. Good traction. Not difficult to mountunmount.

    Sport Tour Tires - All year   CA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Long lasting, great grip
    Cons: Price

    I have tried many brands and models of sport tour tires.These Pilot road 4 GT's have been the best sport tour I have put on my K1200s and now multiple times. Longest lasting with great handling.

    Great tire at competitive price - WI R1200RT Rider   WI Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Steady grip wet and dry
    Cons: none

    Only ridden about 400 miles on the Pilot Road 4 GT's, so far, but cornering grip on dry pavement is steady and confidence inspiring. Also rode about 30 miles on county hwys in torrential downpour, and grip remained firm in straights and turns.

    Michelin PR 4GT's - Plato   WA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Excellent choice for my BMW K1600GT Very good in twisties and in other driving conditions
    Cons: None that I can tell

    Been riding on these tires since I put them on a few weeks ago. Had the chance to go through dry, wet, cold and warm conditions. They feel good and handle real well. Can't say enough about these Michelin's. Would recommend them to anybody.

    Sport-touring tires - centexrider   TX Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: good mileage, good handling
    Cons: none

    This is my 2nd set of Michelin Pilot Road-4 GTs several sets of PR3s and PR2s before that. I ride a 2007 Honda ST1300 and I was very pleased to see Michelin offer the Pilot Road 4 GT. I have long been a fan of the Michelin Pilot Road tires and Michelin is the only tire manufacturer I am aware of that makes a GT spec tire for the Honda ST1300. I am still a little suspect since the GT spec version has the exact same weight rating as the standard spec PR-4. None the less, I have been quite happy with my first set. I do a fair amount of touring two-up, fully loaded, and pulling a trailer. The PR-4 GT seems to handle the weight. I am getting close to 10,000 miles on the 1st set and the rear is about due for replacement but the front still has a good bit of mileage left. Probably close to half of the 10,000 miles was two up, loaded and pulling a trailer. The rest was either rididng solo or two up with no luggage. Handling has been good. I have ridden in the rain but I don't go out of my way to test the wet weather traction. I will probably stick with the PR-4 GTs until they quit making them or I wear out the ST.

    Pilot Road 4 GT - All year round   CA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great mileage and they handle great too.
    Cons: [None]

    I ride canyon roads mostly, all through the year. I go through three to four sets of tires per year. These tires have given me the most mileage out of all the sport tours I have tried and I've tried them all. They handle awesome too. No complaints

    Michelin Pilot Road 4 GT Tires - 2013 BMW 1600GTL   FL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Designed for heavier bikes
    Cons: None

    Just had these installed front and rear. Too few miles to comment on their roadability and tread life yet. Forums rate them very high. Looking forward to riding the twisties in the NC mountains next month.

    PR 4 GT Tires on R1200RT - r90beemer   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great touring tires
    Cons: A slight howling sound at low speeds.

    Purchased and have now put 2,000 miles on PR 4 GT tires on BMW 2005 R1200RT and am very impressed. From rolling up I 80 to riding the passes of the Sierra Nevada's I am very impressed. Replaced previous PR 2 tires with 40K of experience and have noticed improvement in tight corners. Do not have any wet weather experience as we are in a real drought in N. CA and won't see rain for many months yet. I had to make a special effort to get GT's over the standard grade for the RT and definitely do now think it was worth the effort find the GT's. The standards are built for lighter bikes from what I understand. Like all heavily siped tires you will notice more road noise than tires like the PR 2 tires but it disappears at regular speed. These are great tires.

    Michelin Pilot Road 4 GT - Oscar HONDA CBR500R   SC Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Excellent grip on my oil covered parking lot.
    Cons: Hope Michelin lowers price more.

    Took Pictures to share with fellow bikers at work. Received many compliments. In the past owned Pirelli and Continental tires on the Ninja 250. I was satisfied with both. Now that I have a Pilot 4 GT on my one year old Honda CBR, I am very happy with the way it handles in the curves. The original rear was a Dunlop made by Sumitomo in Japan on the 44th week of 2012. I was able to log 10,872 miles in one year and two months. I want to log more than 12,000 miles with these new Pilot Road 4 GT which were made in Spain on the 49th week of 2013. Hope that year was good luck for tire manufacturing. I am very satisfied so much, that I am looking forward to replacing my Sumitomo HTR on my HONDA suv to Michelin X ice. I once had thoughts that Michelin's were over rated. I have had a set of 4 Michelins on my 1995 Honda Civic before selling car to Aunt. Was satisfied with the way the Civic handles. I am now a believer in Michelins for auto, suv, and motorcycle apps. Will recommend to friends and families. Keep up the good work Michelin MAN.

    PR4GT - swampshark   LA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Sportbike feel,super grip,quick turn in,
    Cons: appear smaller and,slightly less ground clearance than PR3

    Michelin,s new PR4 GT's are keepers Tested on a 1500 mile road trip through the Ozark's, the 4's have much quicker turn in, and a sportier feel than the PR3's they replaced on my '04 FJR. Grippy in all situations ,great feel and feedback,and confidence inspiring Lower profile than 3's and slightly less ground clearance, but,livelier and more flickable performance.Improved tire life remains to be seen.

    Pilot 4 GT's - Aaron J   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: grippy, easy turn in, predictable
    Cons: none yet

    500 mi 2up weekend on my 08 FJR AE that had everything from scrub in at 60F to the Hwy 421 Snake at 18F w snowsaltwet. Awesome tire that turns in very easily with linear transition. Rear steps out very predictably with easy control. Pretty crazy ride but grip was never in question, even under hard braking in the wetsalt. Wont put anything but a Michelin on.

    A long road to travel - Iron Mike   MD Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Sticks well and is good in wet weather
    Cons: Wears quickly on my FJR 1300

    This is a good, safe tire that performs well. It is a reasonable performer in wet conditions, but not great.Although it is recommended for my FJR1300, it tends to wear quickly and has a tendency to cup despite the best balancing efforts of my shop.

    Michelin Pilot Road 4 GT Tires - grogers   NE Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great sporttouring tire
    Cons: Price

    Put these tires on my Concours 14 and the bike handles so much better than it did with the stock Dunlop tires it even seems to ride smoother over bumps.

    great tire - Michelin Pilot Road 4 GT   IA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: relatively long-lasting, good grips well wet or dry, easy to mount
    Cons: [None]

    I put on my own tires. I've gone through a few sets of these, about 9,000 miles per rear, more for the front. Wear evenly own my Honda ST1300. Like all tires, subject to puncture, and, on a couple, punctured early in their life. Properly pluggedpatched, however, and they rode the distance.

    So Far so good - BMWGT   NE Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Stick good
    Cons: Harder compound

    Rides a little stiff only have a 700 miles on them, stick good. Hoping to get 10,000-12,000 miles outof them. The last 2 pairs of tires other band. I've only been able to get 6,000-8,000 miles. We will see for the price difference,

    PR4 on BMW R1200RT - Thezz   TX Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Handling is good and tires are solid in the curves - Like
    Cons: None so far

    First set of PR4 and haven't had them long enough to comment on their life. We'll see if they last as long as many people claim.
