Michelin Pilot Power 3 Front Tires
I log a lot of highway miles but also like to romp around in some twisties when I have the time. The PP3's are the best of both worlds, I have a rear PP3 as well and they boost my confidence on the road tremendously. As always would love to spend less per tire, but you cant argue with the build quality.

I needed to replace my set of Michelin Pilot Power 2's and naturally i chose the new models. Theses tires get up to temperature quicker than the previous models and definitely have a solid feel while on the street.
I did get caught out day by a sudden downpour and these tires really had a good amount of grip. I was exploring the levels of grip while riding and it took a excessive amount of power or braking to get them to break loose. I recommend these tires to either the track/street rider or the commuter on his daily ride to work.

Jack of all trades
First off. I have done a emergency stoppie in the rain after only putting 4-5 miles on the tire. If that's not a testament to wet grip I don't know what is. Taken some pretty hot(to me at least) corners with these never felt unstable. Will buy again.

not commuter friendly
this tire might be great for the twisties but...
unfortunately i do not live by a lot of bends and turns i used this tire to mostly commute to work and back on the highway, the tire feels good in the turns i do take however the tire did not last as long as i had hoped
today i ordered a new back tire after about 4900 miles mostly spent around 80mph i am into the low tread tab and then some, by the time my new tire gets here i will have about 5300 miles on the tire and it will be completely shot
after my experience commuting on this tire and my research into a new tire both online and at the dealership i use i have set my eyes on the pilot road 4 which is a better tire all around even at a higher price, i myself ordered the gt since i am heavier and i ride with my wife on the back sometimes
i ride a 2011 r1

I used to run with q2 then q3 and then moved to 2ct then the pp3.. and I can say they are a bit more pricy than the q3's but if you want a step up from the q3 these are really great tires. the dunlops are a bit rounder than the pp3 and you have to fight the q3's a bit compared to these tires although the q3 does have a longer life than these tires! so to summarize it if you want great life and great grip get the q3 and can't beat that price if you have extra mola! they get the pp3 it does have a shorter life but better grip and bit more pricy.

overall a very good tire
I've had this tire for about a 1000 miles on my 2003 cbr600rr. Taken it to 2 track days at somona, its done well for a rider of my skill set. Front tire flexes quite a bit providing good feel so I know what the front is doing.Seems like its gonna last quite a while.

Mostly used on the street and some track
I am a pretty aggressive rider on the weekends and commute daily to work. Around 50 miles a day, these tires are great, very sticky, very predictable. Been very very happy with them.

I absolutely love these tires I will probably never buy any tired but these, Iv hit some pretty high speeds while it was raining (probably not the smartest idea) and these tires have held up great, Iv taken some very sharp corners and felt extremely comfortable and confident. I would recommend these to anyone that wants great long lasting tires that hold up in any condition!!
