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 45 45
High quality tire After just a few hundred miles, this tire shows zero signs of wear yet feels soft to the touch. It has a high shoulder and improved the turn-in on my BMW R1150RS dramatically. Great grip wet and dry. Looking forward to many more miles on this great tire. July 14, 2014
Better than the stock tires on a Yamaha FZ6R I have only put about 200 miles on these tires so far, but they show almost no signs of wear. The grip they have is quite good, and much better than the stock tires. I have not had a chance to test them in the rain yet, but I will update this review with any updates. July 14, 2014
extremely satisfied. Only had the new Pilot Road 4 tires installed for about a 3 weeks, but so far they have performed GREAT.I will be extremely well satisfied. July 8, 2014
GET THEM !! Same review as for rear tire. Michelin is simply making a superior product. You won't be disappointed. July 6, 2014
Outstanding All-Round Tire! I installed these tires (front & rear) on a 1998 Honda VFR 800 Interceptor. I use it for daily commuting as well as spirited back road twisties and weekend fun rides. I can't yet comment on their treadwear, but Michelin states it is 20% improved over the PR3s, which had exceptional tread life. I've ridden a few hundred miles on the PR4s so far on various tarmac services. They have been outstanding in both wet and dry conditions. Turn-in is crisp, they don't wander over changing surfaces, and grip was excellent from day one. One of the advantages touted in their improvements over the previous models was better ability to handle road paint, tar snakes, etc., and I can report this is true. I've ridden some fairly hairy back roads and these tires have given me NO REASON not to trust them implicitly. I have just over 5000 miles on these tires now; the front has worn very evenly & still have perhaps 1-2k left but the rear is ready for replacement NOW as it has worn the center 1/3 out (daily commuter). Take into account the fact that I ride pretty aggressively. I don't know HOW some folks are getting 10-12k miles out of these tires~ June 28, 2014
Hope they're as good as PR3 Feels like good grip with these. I loved the PR3's which lasted as long as any tire I've tried (mostly Michelin PR's). Those stuck like mad and I got 10K mi rear and 12K mi front with a little tread left. Not sure I love the tread design visually as much but that counts for squat. If I hate them I'll update my review. Ducati M620 June 24, 2014
Worth it Just finished the first 4K on these out west on superslab, country roads, and tons of rain. These are fantastic tires. They ain't cheap, but totally worth it IMHO. Haven't had them off road yet, so I can't judge that part. Also, too new to judge tread life. Upcoming trip will include some dirt and sand. July 21, 2014
Great tire. I've put about 1k miles on this set of tires. So far they ensure confidence and stability. These tires replaced a set of PR3s with 16K miles on them. I probably left them on about 1k or so too long but they were excellent tires. I expect these to be even better. I however, have not had them in any rain so far. The wet traction rating is based on my previous set of PR3s. Bottom line these are great tires so far, and I expect to get exceptional tread life out of them. These tires have been great for my commuting as well as some back road twisties. July 21, 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 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
