Michelin Pilot Power 3 Rear Tires
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.

Last Michelin I'll ever buy.
I used to was a big fan of Michelin tires. I run 2ct's, Pure's on my bikes and I liked them. PP3 didn't really impressed me. Slides and slips a lot. I tried every pressure nothing seemed to work. Also cupping occurred and a weird wear pattern where the two compound meet it's created a ridge on side of the tire. Michelin rep says it's due to low tire pressure. Funny thing is I always have run the same pressure on other tires and never had any issues. My suspension is set up for my weight, riding style and is a pretty decent unit. (Ohlins) As far as wear it's ok most likely won't find out how long will last. I'll will chuck them to the trash bin before that. I wont even give them away I'm afraid someone will get hurt.

I love this tire!
This tire is fantastic, if it slips from anything on the road, they bike back down and grip like a fiend. I love these tires, they are 10 fold better than the tires my bike came with from the factory.

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.

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.

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.

Extremely happy with my selection
Installed these tires about 3 weeks ago and I love them! I feel like I'm riding a completely different bike.

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.
