Michelin Pilot Road 4 Front Tires

The Michelin Pilot Road 4 tires represent the latest iteration and next generation of Pilot Road evolution. Designed to deliver maximum safety in most conditions especially on wet roads and in particular when braking, Michelin's goal is to cover all riders in all conditions. Touting both enhanced safety and extended tire life, the Pilot Road 4 tires are a tangible illustration of Michelin’s Total Performance strategy of constantly and simultaneously improving tire performance characteristics across the range.

The Pilot Road 4 tires will be available in three versions, the standard PR4, PR4 Trail for enduro and ADV bikes that are primarily ridden on-road and the PR4 GT for heavier, touring bikes. The Pilot Road 4 GT tires are already the OEM choice for the new BMW R1200RT.

Superior wet-weather performance

  • Michelin Pilot Road 4 tires stop shorter in the wet vs. the leading competitive sport touring tires and Michelin Pilot Road 3

Longest tread life in its class

  • Up to 20% longer tread life than Michelin Pilot Road 3 tires

Dependable grip even in challenging conditions

  • 2 Compound Technology with all new silica-charged rubber compounds for excellent grip from 23°F to 113°F
  • New XST+ siping and enhanced tread patterns for optimum grip at all lean angles

Three separate versions available

  • Pilot Road 4 for all-around sport touring use
  • Pilot Road 4 GT has a stiffer casing with a patented new technology for motorcycle tires that delivers the stability you need for heavier GT-class bikes while riding solo, two-up or with luggage, and the comfort you desire
  • Pilot Road 4 Trail for adventure touring bikes ridden exclusively on the road

Michelin Pilot Road 4 Front Tires 4.8 5 157 157
Only 3 rides but very happy. The Michelin Pilot Road 4 replaced a Bridgestone Battlax BT011 which was the OEM front tire on a new to me 2008 Suzuki GSX650F I found in a garage this past Spring in pristine condition with less than 300 miles. I got 2,500 miles out of the BT011 which seemed to be a pretty sticky soft sport tire with fine grip but a pretty short life. The Pilot Road 4 instills just as much grip confidence as the BT011. I road the Pilot Road 4 on wet roads and still had a very secure, high level of grip confidence. The Pilot Road 4 has an excellent smooth ride quality. I am completely satisfied and delighted with it's performance. Time will tell regarding mileage. November 23, 2015
Great Tire Exactly as reviewed by REVZILLA. Bought the tire and received it the next day! November 2, 2015
Excellent tire in the wet or dry My last PR3 from tire lasted over 10,000 miles, and I think this PR4 will do as well if not better. Great traction in both the wet and dry for a confidence inspiring ride. I love this tire! October 26, 2015
Excellent Tire, Best of both worlds This tire is very confidence inspiring in both dry and wet conditions due to its excellent grip in either of the two weather scenarios. The mileage is just a plus, I currently am at 50% tread life (measured to the top of the wear bars, some will push it even further than that and go until reaching the bottom of the tread itself) with 7000 miles on the set and that's with a few high wear canyon carving days rather than just straight hwy commuting. Think dry traction of Q2's (after warming them up) but with 3X the tread life. Word of caution for those who plan to do some aggressive riding with these at some point would be to please get them warm before getting ridiculous with the leans. Since these are harder rubber than performance tires they take a little extra time to get to the same temps. November 23, 2015
This tire well worth the price Had them for about 1 season. Used them in all types of road conditions. Grip is good. Used them on a heavy rain had a couple fish tail riding back home. But for 90 percent of that ride gripped very well. November 22, 2015
Phenomenal tire I just replaced my PR 4 with a new one, after putting over 22k miles on it in every kind of condition you imagine. They grip well in dry, wet, high speed, cold, and any combination thereof. I also ride in gravel WAY more than I should on my Versys, and these tires have held up very well. They do act like street tires off road though :). I couldn't be happier with it. October 7, 2015
Great grip, long lasting Everything I've heard about the PR4's has been true for my own riding. They grip well, seem to do alright in the rain (although I haven't been able to test them in heavy rain), and are apparently long-lasting. November 2, 2015

A shopper asked: What are the recommended tyre pressures for front and back Pilot Road 4? Jun 25, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Reid W: Check what the manufacture recommends. My Triumph was 36 front and 42 rear. Some people like different pressures for their riding style. Also if you are riding 2 up, consider adding 2-3 psi in the rear.
But note, tire pressures are a personal choice and a balance between ride comfort, handling, turn in and grip. It also depends on your weather conditions, load, and road surface.

William J: Unfortunately due to some health issues and an injury to my wrist, I haven't put enough miles on the front PR4 tire to determine how it is wearing. But I do know that the front PR4 tire has a vibration just as the PR3 tire I replaced. The PR3 tire wore-out quickly and it had bumps all over the tread area by the time it had only a couple thousand miles. I suspect the new front PR4 is going to wear similarly due to vibration I feel. The rear Road Pilot 3 tire has about 3k miles and it still looks and rides fine... But I will never install Michelin tires on my motorcycles again.. Aug 20, 2015

A shopper asked: I just purchased a set of Pilot Road 4 Trails for my 2013 BMW R1200GS...the first ride on them the rear seemed a bit sloshy under hard breaking...and the front seemed like it vibrated quite a bit more that I'm used to. The front pressure was about 40 and the rear 42. Anyone out there with any feedback on these tires? Aug 29, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Dennis P: Vibration is a balance problem. Don't know what sloshy is. Normal pressure is
33-34 front and 34-36 rear.
I have them on a Ducati 1199. No negative issues. I attained speeds up to 155 with no problems.

George L: Hi, I've been using the Pilot Road tires for the last 4 or 5 years. I've never experienced what you have. As an example I'm on my third set on my 2012 Ducati Multistrada. For every day back road riding my pressures are 34 upfront and 38 in the rear. No problems with wear....last set went 6500 miles.

My only thoughts regarding your experience.....too much pressure and/or not balanced properly,

William J: This will probably be the last time I buy Michelin motorcycle tires. Last year I told the local shop to install Pilot Road 3 tires on my Kawasaki ZZR600. When I picked up the bike I was told that Michelin didn't make a Pilot Road 3 in my size for the front so they installed a Michelin Pilot Power and a Pilot Road 3 on the back. The rear tire now has almost 3k miles and it has been great. However, the front tire, a Pilot Power, was horrible from day one. I complained of a vibration and the shop checked the balance. The vibration didn't go away and only got worse. Eventually small bumps appeared.... So when the new Pilot Road 4 came out in my size I immediately ordered one for the front... Much to my disappointment, I can feel the same type vibration that the Pilot Power had.. I've only put a few miles on the Michelin Road 4 and I have a feeling that it isn't going to get any better with age. I did get about 12k miles from a set of Bridgestone Battlax tires but they weren't good in rain. My second set of tires were Pirelli Diablo Strada. I got about 12K from those also and they were better in the rain. I don't know what my next set of tires will be but I'm sure that front tire wont be a Michelin. Feb 3, 2014

Devon S: I'm pretty sure your problem is with the shop, not the tires. No reputable shop I know would install non-matching tires without you yourself demanding it, and even then most wouldn't. That also probably means they don't know how to balance well, leading to your front's problems. Vibration is a problem of balance and suspension, not tire.
Find a reputable shop and give them another go. Nov 1, 2014
William J: Hi Devon. The shop balanced the tires twice and I watched them do it the second time. It was a small shop and I agree with you that they should not have installed mismatched tires... However, I later took my ZZR to a Kawasaki dealership to have the first tire checked and they confirmed that it was balanced properly. When I received the new Road Pilot 4 tire from Revzilla for the front I had the Kawasaki dealership mount it for me... And again,, I can feel that very faint vibration in the front. Unfortunately I have yet to put enough miles on the bike to see bumps visible on the new tire. But I know they are coming.. And BTW,,, that shop where I bought the first front tire,,, they went out of business. It's easier at this point for me to just write-off the bad Michelin front tires as a learning experience and move on to something else.

Bill Nov 2, 2014
wagner s: I ha the same thought in mind when purchasing these on for my gixxer took a chance and I love these tires! The grab onto the asphalt like there's no tomorrow. I've only had them for a week so I can't tell you about the mileage I'll get with them. But I'll tell you there is not one ounce of regret from buying these. Feb 3, 2014

Walter G asked: Why only two sizes available in road 4? Where the road 3 has five sizes. What gives?
Very limiting selection.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
William J: You are lucky Michelin doesn't make the Pilot Road 4 in your size. Otherwise you might buy them and have to deal with a bad tire. My front tire has less than 2000 miles and I feel the same subtle vibration that the last Michelin tire had. I replaced the last tire at 3000 miles because it had bumps all over it. Michelin makes a great automotive tire... However, in my opinion, Michelin motorcycle tires are of substandard quality... I will never buy another Michelin motorcycle tire.... May 23, 2015

A S asked: I have a 2006 Kawasaki ZZR600, I believe the factory spec for the front tire is 120/65, but this tire and several others are only available in 120/60 and 120/70. I am interested in a set of the PR4, but not sure of which aspect ratio to select. My instinct would be to go with the lower profile 120/60, but my concern would be experiencing something similar to William J. from a previous answer. Which aspect ratio is the better bet?

chris d: A profile angle of 65 will give a rounder touring style shape to the tire. A profile of 70 will give more contact on the sidewalls during lean angles. I ride fairly aggressively so i always get the 70 for the front. ,) Apr 12, 2014

Scott C: 90% of tire choice depends on where and how you ride. What may be a great tire for your buddy may not perform to your expectations. I pick a tire for surface conditions and the average weather conditions for where I ride. Stopping power is a primary factor for me as well. Bottom line choose a tire that is designed for your riding style and the conditions you ride in. Mar 3, 2014
