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 Tires - 2CT Dual Compound - Rear
made by Michelin
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 Road 4 Tires - therr850   MI Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: smooth ride, quiet tires, stick well, mounted easily, balanced easily
    Cons: don't have enough miles on them to comment

    i've used two sets of Michelin Pilot Power 2CT's and liked them except for a short life span. The Pilot 4's promise more miles. We will see. Considered Avon Storm 3D XM but I tend to stay with what I know till more reliable information is available. Do mostly commuting tofrom work and occasional day rides with friends.

    Michelin Pilot Road 4 - Skip H   TX Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Typical Michelin quality
    Cons: None at this time.

    Like the PR 3's I replaced, these seem to be an excellent compromise between a sticky sport tire and a long wearing touring tire. Haven't ridden them in the rain yet.

    looking good - ninjabrian   NJ Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: good road feel, good mileage
    Cons: [None]

    I decided to try the pr4s because the bridgestone t30 wore out ridiculously fast on my ninja 1000. Michelins look like they are going to wear better, but only time will tell.

    Happy - Beamer   OH Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great Tire
    Cons: None

    Great tire The bike sticks to the road in all weather conditions. Highly recommend these tires.

    Weather tested - Larry T   TX Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Wet traction smooth
    Cons: none

    I put these tires front and rear on my 2008 DL1000 v strom. Yes, I know it's a Dual Sport but I'm always on pavement.I just returned from a 2500 mile trip from Texas to the Carolinas and back. I spent several hours in and out of the rain on all types of pavement and felt that I was on solid footing the entire trip. I am sure that I have found my tire for a long while.

    Michelin PR 4 - andy   TX Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great grip and feedback
    Cons: None yet

    Too new to tell if they will outlast the PR 3 that they are replacing but on the initial rides they offer the same great feedback and grip I got with the 3's. If they get the extended mileage as advertised they will be a great deal. Using them on a hard ridden Hypermotard in the Hill country with a lot of sidewall action and to commute on so both grip and life are important. Will update as the miles rack up.

    Perfect tires - Ken   MI Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Excellent handling in any weather
    Cons: None

    I removed the OEM Metzler Z-8 tires from my 2014 Honda CTX700D at 5000 mi, and the PR-4 tires made it a totally different better bike. Past experience on previous bikes, always drives me back to Michelin for replacements. Long life, excellent all weather traction, are definitely worth any extra money you may spend, to increase you confidence and safety.

    Great Deal - J   GA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: All
    Cons: None

    Great deal buying as a set with free shipping

    Michelin Pilot Road 4 Tires - RSG   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Responsive, grips the road, inspires confidence
    Cons: None.

    I love taking curves at speed unless I have a tire on my bike that breaks traction around a curve. That's gives me an uneasy feeling. These tires give me the tractionfriction I need to feel comfortable going around my favorite motorcycle roads. I can't comment on how they perform in heavy rain, because I have not been caught in a heavy down pour since I've owned these. But they do well on wet roads. I've only got 4,000 miles on these tires so I can't tell you how long they will last me, but at 4,000 miles they still have a lot of tread left. I ride a 2012 R1200RT, these tires do very well on it. I don't have one complaint.

    Confidence inspiring - SGieryn   WI Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Awesome grip on dry twisties, no troubles on wet. Seem to wear well but too early to tell. Look better on my motorcycle than I thought they would
    Cons: New design equals higher price of course

    Put these on my Triumph Speed Triple R for a recent trip to the Arkansas Ozarks fantastic twisty roads known for chewing up tires fast. Was not sure how I would like the grip vs the softer Pirellis that are standard issue for the R, and off the bike the tread design was not particularly pleasing to my eye. On the bike I think they look great. Any questions I had about sure grip on the twisties melted away on the first few corners of HWY 9 and 341. I rode them hard for 3 days. Total mileage from Wisconsin, down & back 2700 miles. Tread wear seems good and maybe better than the Pilot Road 3s but too early to tell until the final tally.

    Great Tire - Tom   CA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Eveything
    Cons: None

    Loving these on my BMW R1200R roll into twisties like silk, awesome stick. Confidence inspiring in rain.

    great tire - istong   VA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: wears well and good tread design
    Cons: none so far

    I am enjoying this tire. The tread is working well in wet and dry conditions and it's deep tread looks like it will last a long time.

    PR4 - JW   OK Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Long lasting, Good riding tires
    Cons: A little pricy, but worth it.

    I changed the front Michelin PR3 tire after 30,000 miles on my V-Strom 650. The rear did not last that long, but still was close to 14,000 miles. This tire is supposed to last longer due to the harder middle tread.I ride 2 up 60 of the time and we could tell the difference in the ride quality over another brand of tire that has a much stiffer sidewall.

    Best all-around tire - btl68   MO Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Excellent wear and rain grip
    Cons: [None]

    I have used 4 sets of these tires so far. 7000-9000 out of a rear. Fronts will last a little longer, but not thru the use of two rears. Still, excellent wear and the rain grip is better than anything supersport orientated. I am sticking with these tires.

    Tire Review - Doug   NC Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Good traction wet or dry
    Cons: wears out quickly

    This tire provides excellent grip on dry roads or wet roads.I ride rather aggressively and the most mileage I get on this tire is under 4000 milesThat said the mileage is the same for any tire I useSo I would recommend this tire.

    great tire - Ed   CA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Handles well, lasts a while
    Cons: Expensive

    Great tire, I last had the PR2 and got many miles out of those, supposed to get even more mileage out of these. Michelin keeps jacking up the price on their tires however, they are tremendously more expensive than my PR2s were....

    Pilot road 4 - jjoyner   MI Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: seems to turn into the curve
    Cons: too early to say

    My last two sets of tires were the Pilot road 3 I got 12000 miles on them I thought I would try the new 4's. I don't have a lot of miles on them yet but so far they seem to ride a little softer and hold the road nice. They seem to turn in when I am taking a curve and help hold the line, I found this a little strange at first because I am not that good at ridding to fast In the curves but it makes me feel comfortable going a little faster. On the plus side my wife thinks they ride softer than the last set.I ride a R1200rt

    Great tires - Yamaha FZ6   WA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Hold very well in any kind of weather,
    Cons: [None]

    It is always good to install new tires but it is especially good when the tires are Michelin brand. No matter rain or shine tires hold great and constant feeling of control is present.I don't race much but it felt pretty good to go 110 mihr. Making very sharp curves didn't take away the sense of being in control.The price was pretty good too. If you have all the necessary tools and time to change them. But I ended up paying another 120 for installation.I would definitely recommend it.

    PR4, A GREAT CHOICE - Freedom45   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great rain tire, superb mileage, confident cornering
    Cons: Responds slower in transitions

    Two weeks ago I completed a 6,000 mile ride to Canada and changed out my Pirellis for the Michelin PR4 on a BMW R1150RT prior to the trip.. I had hours of rain riding and some of it was severe. The PR4s were as advertised, superb wet weather handling and despite standing water there was never a hint of hydroplaning. Yesterday I got back from an 1,200 mile run to SW Colorado -- lots of curves.. The rear tire still has 332nds of tread and the front has used only 232nds since installation. Impressive. The Pirellis have a quicker transitions in corning but the Michelins were totally predictable and stable. Since most of my mileage is touring the trade off for higher mileage and wet weather performance will assure the next replacements will be PR4s. Kudos Michelin.

    FFF - Fritz   NY Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: A great REAL world street tire,wet roads don't faze them and the sand and dust on back roads seems to be taken in stride After a little over 2000 miles they still impress
    Cons: Can't think of any

    Great tire's Leaving on a 10,000 mile back road road trip around the country.. I'll let you know how they fared-FFF

    pilot 4 - bid caller   TN Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: stick like glue
    Cons: price

    2nd set of pr4 tires . rear lasted 5500 miles and was great in the rain and stuck like glue . will keep buying this tire .

    Michelin Pilot Road 4 - 2CT Tires - James   OH Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great tires
    Cons: Apparent limited shortage of Michelin Pilot Road 4 GT tires, in my size, available from the manufacturer.

    I've only had my new Pilot Road 4 - 2CT tires installed for about a week, but so far they have performed GREAT. If they are as good as the Pilot Road 3 tires -- and they are supposed to be even better --- I will be extremely well satisfied.

    Michelin PR 4s - Sprint7181   PA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Excellent tires
    Cons: None so far

    Ordered a pair of the PR4s, delivery was fast and the price was excellent.

    Pilot Road 4's - Mike   NY Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Sticky, Great Handling, Smooth
    Cons: None so far

    So far very happy with these tires. I've put on close to 1000 miles on them since I got them. I had Pilot Power 2, 2CT before these. I feel just as confident on the PR4 as I did on the PP2CT if not more confident on them.If you're looking for a great set of sport-touring tires, these are for you

    Yay New tire - KitATX   TX Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Round, great in all weather, no holes in it
    Cons: None yet

    I had a Pilot Road 3 rear tire with about 2,000 miles on it that I planned to take on a big West Coast tour next month, but I somehow managed to run over a padlock key and put an unpluggable hole in it so I got the PR4. I had to wait a couple weeks to get it mounted, during which I was riding on a PR3 with a giant flat spot from doing 11,000 miles. The new PR4 has no flat spot, so that's great. It also has no hole in it from a key, so that's even greater. In all seriousness, this tire has had excellent grip in all conditions I've thrown at it so far, and I expect it to last a good, long, time based on the PR3s, but I only have a few hundred miles on it and can't say anything with real authority. I'll know more after my trip...

    Michelin Pilot 4 - Bikeyron   OH Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Excellent feeling tire
    Cons: None Yet

    I had replaced the original tires prior to Michelins with Conti's. I noticed a fishtail feeling from the Contis when I was on the highway and did many fixes to no avail. I never thought it could be the tires. I replaced them with the Michelin Pilot Road 4 tires and it doesn't fishtail anymore, feels confident in corners and am really happy with my FJR again. It is now a treat to ride again. I would recommend these to and cyclist. I don't know how they will wear yet, that is to be yet determined.

    Vstrom - TG   CA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Good grip, nice to ride on.
    Cons: none so far

    Replaced rear stock tire. Looking forward to when front wears out.

    Quite surprised - Guy   CA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Excellent grip and lean angle capability
    Cons: as with all Michelin PR series tires, there are no cons.

    The PR series tire are a quality high mileage performance tire. This product will outperform it's predecessor the PR2. Handling is confident and trustworthy, lean angle grip is remarkable. We will have to see if they live up to their predecessor in mileage.

    road 4's only - Bandit Jon   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Excellent wear, handle like a dream in wet or dry conditions,hot or cold temps
    Cons: none

    I'm a daily rider in Florida. Weather here changes almost minute by minute. As winter is about over here, the coldest temps Ive riden with the Road 4 was about 47 or so. Of course, that was preceeded by a nice half-day of rain that I had to ride in. The Road4 is all you can ask for in confidence and margin of safety, as my riding habits sometimes are not the smartest or as safe as they should be. What I pay the county every year will attest I've run Road 3's for the last 3 years consecutively with no hiccups. These are every bit as good, and... longer lasting I know what's gonna be on my 1200 Bandit for the next couple of years. Dont be like me... Ride smarter. But do it on the Road4's. You wont regret a couple of good decisions

    Michelin Pilot Road 4 - Sarge   TN Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Handling
    Cons: Whirring noise at low speeds minor con

    This is the 5th set of tires that I have had on my present bike. The OEM Dunlops were useless. I've used Michelins since I wore out the OEMs. These 4s transformed my bike. Cornering is smooth and effortless.

    Pilot Road 4 - Buelligan   NC Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great in rain, good mileage so far
    Cons: none to date

    I bought the Pilot Road 4's to replace my Dunlop Roadsmart 2's. I have been running Roadsmart 2's for a while and always loved the tire and got awesome mileage from them but I never liked how bad they flat spotted from a lot of highway riding which is what I do. I have had friends with Pilot Road 3's that got about the same mileage I was getting and their tires were not flat spotted as bad so I figured since these had come out claiming 20 more mileage and being Pilot Roads I figured I'd give them a shot since they were only a few dollars more.So far I have put 2000 miles on them and they still look brand new. They are more rounded than what I'm used to so that took some getting used to. They work awesome in the rain. I've rode in some pretty severe downpours and they didn't even miss a beat or make me lose any confidence when riding. I ride all the time so I am always riding in the rain and these are definitely on par with the Dunlops I came from which is what I was hoping. I've rode them down to about 20 degrees so far and they worked great there too. Overall so far my experience has been excellent. Great cold weather tire just take it easy till heated up but they won't feel dangerous until then. Great in the rain and dry. Great wear so far.

    Awesome - Shawn   NJ Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Grip is good in all weather so far in NJ...salt on the roads....its ok
    Cons: none

    A great all around sport tire, good for small rain so farhavent hit a downpour yet comparing them to my pilot road 3s they work just as good if not better. and not to sound dumb but they look better with no front fender running them on a 05 buell xb9sx.

    Michelin Pilot Road 4 rear - MiniSuper   NY Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Good grip, Improved handling
    Cons: [None]

    Found the best price for this tire from CompA. However, finding a shop to have it mounted was quite a challenge. Most shops around me were asking for over 60 to mount a single tire. Others only install tires that they sold. I ended up going to a Honda dealership to have it mounted for 25. I had to go back a few days later because they mounted the tire in the wrong direction. They also managed to scratched up my Marchesini rim pretty good the second time around. I really wish CompA would adopt Tirerack's preferred installer system where shopper can pick a shop recommended by Tirerack to have the tire ship directly to the shop and installed for a reasonable price.The tire itself is excellent. A big improvement over my OEM tire.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    camper turned commuter - ELC   CA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: CA pricing, dual compound technology
    Cons: none

    I haven't been riding on these tires long enough or far enough to give a detailed report, but with about 800 miles on the tires, so far so good with little or no noticeable wear on the center and solid reassuring gription and tracking when cornering. Despite the word trail in their name, these are primarily street on-road tires and are on a 2013 BMW R1200GSw installed and balanced at my dealership. Why street tires on a dual sport I am running these tires for the next 6-7 months since I will be using the bike primarily for commuting on the slab in Southern California until April or May. Then, I will trade these for a pair of partial onoff-road tires for summer camping and off-road use. Competition Accessories pricing on these was much lower than any other place I found and shipment was fast. Strongly recommended based on dealing with C.A. and performance on tires so far.

    Great tire choice - Jeff F.   PA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Fantastic grip - wet or dry.
    Cons: In first 700 miles - none.

    I put a set of PR4 trails on my Stelvio with expectations from my experience with PR3s 4s on my C14 and with 700 miles on them, it was a well founded decision. Absolutely impressed with the handling and grip in cool wet and dry conditions. Past experience tells me I should get excellent mileage as well. My last PR3 on the rear of my C14 went 11.5k miles and had some left in it, but needed to swap it out for a long mileage trip I was planning. By the way, I have the first gen version Stelvio with the 5.5 rear rim and the 170 60 works perfectly.

    Michelin Pilot Road 4 Set - MGuzziSeattle   WA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great in wet and dry. Quick break in. Confidence inspiring.
    Cons: Looks

    I recently rode about 400 miles yesterday on my brand new PR4's on my Moto Guzzi 1200 Sport and I have to say that I like them a lot. I was switching from Metzler M3's which I never liked at all. I ran up to Hurricane Ridge look it up and then out to Point Flattery, the most Northwestern point in the continental US. I hit a few spots of rain and wet roads and the tires performed perfectly. There's always a moment on new tires that puts a knot in your belly when pushing harder than you should, but I never got it with these. The turn in is great and the grip the outside of the tires produce confidence in spirited curves. I liken the feel to Pilot Power's which I run on my Hawk GT. I had a great ride and inspected the tires when I got home. I was surprised that I still had new tire nubs on the middle and outsides of both front and rear tires - they still looked new. I did ride harder and faster than I should have on new tires, so I would expect the 10K miles that I've read on other sites with reviews of these. The one thing that I'm not in love with is the tread pattern. It looks funky with the multitude of narrow channels and holes everywhere. I just think engineers are much smarter than me and all tires just look black in motion - I'm just glad that that motion keeps me off the pavement. So far so good.

    Newest Pilots - LarryC   CO Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Good handling, Quality Construction
    Cons: None yet

    Wow, hard to review tires after only a couple of rides. I've run the Pilot series on other bikes, Pilot 2's on my Guzzi Griso and 3's on my Norge. All have been good tires. Now Michelin has created the Pilot 4 for big trailies in a size that fits my '06 Triumph Tiger 955i. I've always run Michelins on my Tiger, first Anakees, then Anakee 2's with good success. Since I have a Sertao for dual sport, I decided to focus the Tiger on road performance, hence the switch to Pilots. The Tiger's really a street bike anyway, and a good one.Just a word about nomenclature the Trail designation doesn't refer to the intended use of the tires but rather to the bikes on which they are intended to be used. Big Adventure bikes like my Tiger, or GS's, DL's, KTM's and the like. These are street tires. That said, I wouldn't hesitate to hook a couple of sections of pavement together with a dirt or gravel road to make an entertaining loop. I got a chance to put about 500 miles on these tires...from interstate droning to some great single lane mountain roads. The performance of the tires is certainly up to Pilot standards. Great cornering ability and extremely smooth ride. Time will tell about wear, but every set of Pilots I've mounted has had better wear characteristics than the previous ones, so my expectations are high.I do mount my own tires, so I take extra care to make sure everything is correct, from seating the bead properly, to inflation and balance. It took very little weight to balance the tires. On new pavement these tires run out glass smooth. I do ride with a pillion, as my wife is an avid motorcyclist too. That probably cuts into the wear a bit, but it doesn't mean we ride slowly. We tend to be aggressive and achieve respectable lean angles and I get pretty hard into the front brake. If you have a big adventure bike and focus mostly on pavement riding, I think you'll like these. BTW, I have a friend with a new Ducati Multistrada that gets ridden mostly in sport mode. He has these tires and likes them as well.

    I travel 100 miles a day for work and have outfitted both my 02 gsxr 750 and my 01 gsxr 1000 built with these tires they show very litle wear after 7,000 miles. Incredible Grip in wet to extreme down pours. I was a firm on never changing from the RP3's but the 4's are 10x better. 100 the best tire for the money. WIl be buying 2 more sets come winter.

    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.

    Very Good Tires - Devin   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Tires are great all around.
    Cons: Not a dual sport tire.

    I got these tires for my 2009 R1200GS about 2 months and 3000 miles ago. I mostly ride a daily commute on highway, but did take a 1200 mile trip on these tires. At this point they have NOT developed a flat spot in the center of the tread from highway use as other tires I have run did. On the GS they do feel a lot more nimble than a dual sport tire. Steering is a lot more responsive than on dual sport tires. Surprisingly these tires did really well on dry dirt roads. They are great in rain on paved roads. All around they are holding up well and I will be buying them again.

    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.
