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.

A truly excellent tire for most riders! This PR4 does it all: it is well suited and comes in sizes for almost any late model motorcycle, handles and grips stupendously well in the wet and even more in the dry. And tread wear? I put on almost 300 miles before the chicken strips wore off and have 3k miles on them and they still look like new! For anyone that does street-only riding, these tires are for you! Overall, an excellent tire, especially for the price. September 2, 2014
Great Tire On my ride, I came from a Dunlop sport touring tire that was stock on my bike and even though this is my second set of tires, I feel as a beginner riders that theses tires are great for beginners. After putting the PR4 set on, I immediately noticed how much softer the tire and the ride was but didnt compromise my ability to still feel the road. After putting 1K off dry weather on the tires with flawless traction, even after riding like a nut case, I had zero problems. Have yet to have a problem with wet traction as long as they are warmed up. My only problem is after 4K on my rear, it is beginning to show a lot of wear even though I never do burnouts or such. I hope it will last more than 7k though. August 20, 2014
WOW I LOVE this tire, I have put 6 thousand hard miles on it in the 3 months I have owned it. Rain and all and it has not slowed me down or let me down one bit, best of all tires still looks brand new. August 18, 2014
Poor ride... Great grip in wet On my Kawasaki ZZR I've tried Bridgestone and Pirelli before buying Michelin. This is my second Michelin front tire. The first tire cupped badly by 2k miles and the bumpy ride was noticeable from mile one. I removed and discarded that tire at less than 2k miles and I was hoping for better luck with this second tire. But that was not to be. The ride is horrible but it has great grip in the rain. The back tire, a Michelin Pilot Road 3, has about 5k miles and it is wearing well. It rides much smoother than the front tire and has not given any issue thus far. However, this will probably be the last set of Michelin tires I put on my motorcycle due to the two bad front tires.. August 15, 2014
Long lasting all-weather tire I bought this tire to replace my PR3 front which lasted 15k miles of spirited riding and the occasional track day. I would not recommend this tire for track days unless you live in a cooler climate and dont plan on pushing too hard. This tire is great if you commute and want something that will last a loooong time as well as giving you great wet grip. Hands down the best tire for a rainy climate like the PNW. August 7, 2014
Awesome tires! My stock Versys tires seemed fine until someone else at work bought a new Versys. Seeing the tread comparison made me realize that I'd been playing Russian Roulette by riding on mine. OEM tires were shot after 6K miles. I needed something high mileage, and the Pilot Road 4s got the best reviews. These tires, thus far, are AMAZING. They're smooth on the highway, they grip the turns like velcro, and give much more road feel than the OEM tires. I'm a commuter, and the sense of stability from these tires makes me feel a lot safer on the LA streets and highways. HIghly recommend! I will try to report back in when they finally run down (hopefully at 10K+, fingers crossed!) August 6, 2014
Good wet and dry traction This has been a great riding tire handling cracks tar strips and rough road in the wet as well as when it is dry August 4, 2014
Amazing Probably the best tire you can get in this class bar-none ! You will love yourself for buying it ! a August 4, 2014

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: 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

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

harry g p: I live in Pa. and it is snowing here and no riding for me. 2/3/2014
i have been using Michelin PR2s,Pr3s, and have had very good use out of them I have been averaging 7 K miles from them and they handle great. All the people I ride with use them and are happy.
We ride all back roads at a reasonable ( fast ) pace.

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

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,
Aug 29, 2014
Reply to George Good answer? 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.

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
