Michelin Pilot Power 3 Front Tires 4.8 5 168 168
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. April 20, 2015
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. April 6, 2015
The best!! 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!! March 30, 2015
this tire sucks... I have been racing for over 6 years with the 2CT tire. I even have 3 sets in stock in my garage. My buddy bought the pp3 and highly recommended,so i bought a set. I ran 32/32 psi cold set. Right of bat i noticed. The rear tire is too round, my bike steers almost to quick. And the tire has really hard sidewall. I dont really race in the wet so i dont care if the pp3 is 4 sec quicker. I unmounted. And gave them away. April 17, 2015
Confidence inspiring. I have put over 600 miles on my new PP3s and could not be more satisfied. Our weather this early spring in the Pacific Northwest has been cool and often dry. While I still have not had the opportunity to ride at a temperature over 60 degrees, I am extremely happy with the traction in both wet and dry conditions. Obviously the tires will provide more traction when the pavement gets hot, but the confidence they give me while playing aggressively (in the twisties) in colder weather is nothing short of spectacular. The Revzilla Team had my tires at my door a day early. Outstanding. Buy with confidence. March 2, 2015
Gsxr600 Last season i was riding on PP2. This season i decided to go with the PP3 and wow, im in LOVE. The bike handles perfect, so much grip. the tire warms up very fast. I def recommend these tires. April 12, 2015
My favorite tire I ride a 2012 FZ8. I commute mostly, with the odd spirited joyride or 800+ mile round-trip trip. I ride rain or shine, all seasons, and I have gone through 3 tire sets so far. I don't drag any knees on the street (just pegs), don't do trackdays, and I don't abuse the speed limit too badly, most days. 70% highway, 5% city 25% backroad riding. Bike came with a bridgestone sport touring tire, not sure which. I wore those to the cords in under 6,000 miles. Average tire. Wore out quickly, lost neutrality very quickly, squared off quickly, slippery when wet (heh). Next tires were the S20. Better, but not right for my style of riding, half done and squared off slightly in 2000 miles. I didn't wear those out, just 2000 miles and a bolt ended my relationship with the rear, the front was thrown away after that. Last set (and current set) were these, Pilot Power 3's. There may be a better tire, there may be a longer wearing tire, there may be a [insert trait here] tire, but I don't care, I love this tire. LONGEVITY: I got over 12,300 miles from my last set before the front and rear were down to the wear bars, not slicks, not cords, just wear bars. AWESOME. Probably could have pushed another thousand or more until slicks if I had to. They wear evenly too, at least for me and my bike and riding style. Front and rear were wearing evenly, not like my other tires were I could have gone through 2 rear tires for every 1 front. The dramatic "new round tire" feeling was not as great when I swapped these out for new sets of PP3's, probably because they didn't wear badly and square off as much as the other tires i've had. GRIP: I love the grip from first day to last. Rain or shine. Very confident tire, never pushed it crazy hard, but also never lost grip except for the odd sand or gravel patch where it got a little squirmy. I also ride 1 mile of dirt/gravel to my house where the road ends every day, and even with crazy sport bike on dirt speeds I feel pretty confident. When leaned over very stable, even in wet. When practicing wheelies very stable, when being a hooligan on the freeway very stable, I love this tire. COST: I don't even care. But they are cheap. February 17, 2015
Great tires for many road conditions I put a few miles on my set as well as some time on a buddy's set of these on a CBR1000rr and these have been a great investment. I like the feel and they have great turn in on corners and feel planted through the turns. February 16, 2015

Tyler J: Chose this tire because it had great reviews. Also many of my friends who have numerous years of riding experience recommended these for mainly street use and some track use. Dec 24, 2014
En H: The 2CT. Long lasting but nice cornering capability. Nov 29, 2014
Justin T: Currently I ride a '07 CBR 600RR, and I am looking for a tire that will meet my needs as a daily rider/commuter, but also holdup to the demands of riding through the mountains during my leisure time. Commute is about 20miles a day, mostly highway. Leisure riding is anywhere from 150-450miles a trip depending on day/time. I ride Michelins on my car, and have been very satisfied with their quality. I'll update in a few months with how these fair. Oct 25, 2014
Volkan T: Its a better tire for city riding than most others and its an exact replacement for my current front wheel's tire which just picked up a nail on the road. Sep 27, 2014
scott m: because I bought a pilot power 3 rear Sep 22, 2014
C A: Big fan of the MPP and MPR line of tires. The MPP2CTs were amazing in the dry, but greasy in the wet. I hear this new generation is a little better in the wet. The MPR3s were amazing everywhere. Sep 21, 2014
Tyler J: Recommended by friend Sep 19, 2014
Stefanie A: Recommended by friends who ride as well. Looking for replacement for my Dunlop Q2 and asked for feedback and this was their suggestion. After looking into it, seemed to fit the bill - better center wear for daily commute, while still sticky on the sides for the curves. Wasn't going to replace the front, but figured since the front tire is about 4 years old I should probably do the set. Sep 11, 2014
Johnny D: A lot of my biker friends have recommended this to me Sep 10, 2014
Jason T: They are the best sport bike street tires on the market. Sep 2, 2014
James H: I already ride the Pilot Power 3, and simply need to replace the front. (The rear was replaced 3 months ago.) Aug 27, 2014
Scott J: Best all around tire grip ver well in San Francisco weather changes rapidly so I need something that is not just a great sport tire but on wet surfaces as ell. Aug 17, 2014
Robert V: I like that they were for street riding and some track time also. Aug 12, 2014
William B: These are really the tires recommended by my manufacturer for my Triumph Speed Triple and most other riders in the forums seem to recommend it. I ride so much that I eventually moved to the Pilot Road 3, but the tire was great. It just didn't last long enough for my riding style. Recommended for those who only put a few thousand miles on their bikes a year, or need a performance tire for their aggressive riding style! Aug 11, 2014
Dennis D: The check out system allowed me to select the exact tire size. an advantage over your competitors. Jul 20, 2014
Thomas J: Good mix of performance and mileage for a toe Jul 8, 2014
Scott R: Wanted a great handling tire for my speed triple. Jul 8, 2014
Abdulla A: Noob rider and wanted grip over longevity, these seemed to have great reviews (over a 100 of those), Revzilla staff were helpful and confirmed that these are noob friendly, and it's not like they won't last quite a long range with the dual compound. Also, the tread pattern just looks cool! Jun 26, 2014
Joseph R: Recommended by my mechanic. Jun 25, 2014
Anthony E: I'm pleased with the Pilot Powers i currently have, so why not get the newer models? Jun 9, 2014
kevin f: price Jun 5, 2014
Isaac A: reviews sound good May 29, 2014
Gary H: Michelin tires are the best all around sportbike tire for the street. They are super sticky, get good mileage, and are very stable and predictable. The Pilot Power 2CT was a great tire, but the new Pilot Power 3 is even better. Love this tire. May 28, 2014
David R: Great tire daily rider. I have had this tire almost a year and still looks new May 22, 2014
Blake J: I was looking for a high quality sport tire with good tread life for the boring parts between fun Texas back roads. The PP3 seems to fit the bill. May 19, 2014
Earle B: "I live 30 minutes from The Deals Gap "Dragon" which I ride weekly during warm weather. I have these same tires on another twisty bike and they never slip or let me down even when leaned to the limit with the throttle poured-on. I don't know about (nor care about) wet performance or wear rates. I only care about maximum dry grip on the edges. These tires deliver that on a 140 HP bike. Get some now!" May 19, 2014
Keith P: Past Experience with Michelin; Performance & Wear May 18, 2014
Timothy R: I had the pilot power 2 before. these sounded better, and they are. May 5, 2014
adam g: Dame good price for a great tier May 1, 2014
EDWIN P: highly recommended tire by fellow riders. Apr 29, 2014
D A: Wanted something more sport-oriented than my Dunlop RoadSmarts. Installed these on my 2007 Ducati S2R1000 Monster and took them straight to the North Course at VIR. Full disclosure: My first time on a track, and VIR had just been resurfaced, so I have no basis to compare for country or mountainous road riding--yet. Initial impressions were good neutral feel in the straights and confidence-inspiring at the turn in point. Took them to within 3/8-inch (rear) for chicken strips and they always felt planted. Transitioned willingly. Looking forward to trying them on some of my favorite roads in the Blue Ridge and Shenandoah area. Apr 28, 2014
Cory G: Research. Best tire for price Apr 26, 2014
DAVID W: I have run many sets of Michelin PP & Pilot Power 2CT's on my R1. I ride this bike hard on canyon roads, and track days. As I used to do a lot of Road and Dirt Racing, I tend to slide my bikes around and spin the rear out of corners. Everything that Michelin promises they deliver in the Pilot Power 3. I am VERY happy with this tire, the grip is great, they feed back well when pushing the front and sliding the rear, AND LAST LONGER ! If you Liked the PP, PP 2CT & the PP Pure you will love it. Apr 15, 2014
Israel R: Based on reviews. Apr 1, 2014
Eric Y: Did my research on this tire and have come to the conclusion that this is the best tire out!" Mar 21, 2014
Calvin A: Heard nothing but GOOD things about them my buddies are riding these and they love them... Have yet to mount them because of this horrible Wisconsin winter but soon my friends soon! Mar 15, 2014
Terrace B: Replaced my stock Bridgestones and its like day and night the difference between the two. Mar 10, 2014
Earl K: Matched reason for the rears Mar 7, 2014
Jeffrey E: Great reviews. Feb 1, 2014
James M: research and revzilla vidios Jan 25, 2014
Andrew B: The POWER2's on the rear are still a great tire but the fronts are worn out so replacing the 2's with 3's makes good sense as they may not be as good as 4's but for the price they deliver great performance and value. Jan 18, 2014
jaime h: video reviews Dec 17, 2013

Jeremy W: I love the pilot powers and wanted to try the dual compound on the P3's Nov 9, 2013
Chadrick D: I like the aggressive tread pattern, and from what I've read, they give a lot of grip. Oct 27, 2013
russell d: Has 20% more longevity than the pilot power 2 tire plus it will be a good track day tire. Oct 16, 2013
Manuel C: hear that they were much better than the previous and they are. Love riding with them. Oct 14, 2013

Dirk K: Great traction and feels much more secure in the rain. Aug 29, 2013
Hao D: As a sportbike track rider, I wanted to ride my street bike "Versys 650" aggressively. These were a great all around choice for me. Aug 28, 2013
George P: R6 forums reccomended pilot power 2ct... pp3's are the upgraded version, at the same price! Aug 27, 2013
Ahren K: Cause its the best tire out right now! Aug 23, 2013
Duane M: These are the best tires I have ever ridden on! I got 9,000 miles out of my first set, 5,000 of which I had a passenger with me. STICKY!!!!!! Aug 22, 2013
Bartlomiej K asked: I have an 07 zx6 it recommends a 120/65/17. I would like to get pilot power 3. Should I get the 60 or 70 since they don't have a 65? Jul 17, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Andrew B: I'd go with the 70 as it will give you better stability and still good turn in. I used to run 60s on my Aprilia RSVR but it made the bike twitchy so you had to stay on top of things (Smaller diameter will act like increased head angle). If you're mostly ontrack or on twisty roads then the 60 will make left right transitions quicker. my 2cents. Cheers, Andrew Jul 18, 2014

Melvin D asked: I have a 2012 Ninja 650r and need new tires. The spec for the OEM tires are Front 120/70-17 Rear 160/60-17. Is there a benefit to getting larger replacement tires or should i stick with the spec size? Dec 9, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Justin N: Stick with your spec size. They give you that size for a reason and they probably made the bike according it so you should stick to it. People might say you get more grip with the tires but it doesnt really matter cause ur bike can only output a certain amount of power and engineers design the spec of the tires to use up every percentage of that power.

Krzysztof B asked: Hi, I have a Suzuki GSX650F, I do not go to track, just normal riding (city, highway). I was wondering if it is a safe and smart idea to put Michelin Pilot Power 3 in the front wheel and the Michelin Pilot Road 4 in the rear wheel? I know they have different compounds, so maybe it is better to keep both the same type of tires in the front and the back. Any ideas would be appreciated, thank you. Nov 6, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Craig W: Yep, it will work just fine. They are similar tires. The Road 4 will wear well. My Road 3 barely shows any wear after 2 years. Nov 6, 2014
