Michelin Pilot Road 4 GT 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 GT tires are for heavier, touring bikes and 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. 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

Best set of street tires I've ever used
On February 15, 2014 I had a front and rear Michelin Pilot Road 4 GT installed. Today, 06 December 2014, I had them replaced. The front tire needed to be replaced while the back tire had 500 to 1000 miles left on it (estimated). I rode 17,346 miles on those tires. As recently as this week I took sweeper transition ramps from one highway to another at 80+ mph in the rain. I trust these tires because I entered into a hairpin curve with water running across it way too fast while ascending Pike's Peak. (Visibility was somewhat poor due to the rain, hail, and fog—the curve snuck up on me.) I expected to crash, but the tires stuck to the road like glue. Since my wife was on the back, this was a good thing.

Of the 17,346 miles traveled on those tires, over 2700 of them were two-up, and of those 2491 included full saddlebags and a full Corbin trunk (highly recommended, by the way). Most of the 17,346 miles were on highways, generally at higher speeds, putting the vast majority of the wear on the center of the tire—where I usually wear them out as a highway commuter. I have also tested them in the twisties (two up), enjoying their excellent cornering traction.

I have never had tires with such a great combination of traction and longevity. I don't think I have even exceeded 10,000 miles with any other tire (on bikes that weighed less). I highly recommend the Michelin Pilot Road 4 GT tires.

Inspires Confidence
PR4 - Buy it.

HONDA ST1300 '07. I went through a couple sets of Bridgestone Batlax variants and they were very squirrely when crossing the metal bridges found all over Florida causeways. When initiating slow, to mid speed corners, they also tended to "Fall" vs "Carve"

After upgrading to Michelin PR4's I was blown away with the new road feel. Steady as a Rock at any lean angle. 1800 miles in 4 days from Washington DC to Tampa, FL as a twisties torture test on Skyline Drive, Blue Ridge Parkway, Cherahola Skyway, Tail of the Dragon, then Super Slab all the way home. Mountain Top - Sleet, to Sea Level - Heat within 24 hours and I was SO Impressed. Bought a new BMWK1600GTL and will be strapping PR4's on it as soon as I can consume the Factory Metz Z8's. (which I've heard happens quickly)

Grip in the twisties. Smooth as silk on the freeway.
These are perfect for my large, sporty tourer. I ride an FJR1300. I've chased friends on sport bikes through the twisties around Northern California. The tires inspire confidence when flicking into turns and scraping pegs. Afterward, it's smooth sailing at any speed on the freeway. I've noticed low speed maneuvering is easier on these as well, which is important to me as I'm only 5'6" (female), making it easier to park, etc.. So far the tread looks really good. I'm not inclined to try any other brand after having these.

Best sport touring tires on the market
Simply put, these are the best sport touring tires on the market! I ride a BMW K1600GT and these tires have great grip, traction, and inspire great confidence. My previous two sets were PR3's and they lasted 10,000 miles front and back. Michelin claims these tires last even longer.

quiet, awesome in the wet, longevity....Application for a Kawasaki Concours 14 2012
I had the GT form of this tire as my second set of tires. It replaced the OE Battleaxe from Bridgestone at 7200 miles. I now have 19000 miles and expect to replace it before the summer. I drive in every type of weather as I commute to work 20 miles(40 round trip). Temperature ranges from 29 to 105F(Texas).
I have never had a surprise with this tire, breaking hard in rainy weather doesn't faze it. Never seen so far the ABS light come on.
I wear the lateral thread on weekends and very pleased with cornering.
I would say that for a 700 lbs bike, it is very well adapted.
I will definetely buy again

Too soon for accurate fare evaluation of product.
This is my first set of the Pilot Road 4 GTs.
I ride a BMW R1200RT so I need the GT rating due to weight.
I have been using the 3s and have had good luck with them.
The dry traction does seem to be improved with the PR 4s over the PR 3s.
If the wear is better than the PR3s I'll be happy.
I did get good wear out of the PR 3s, First set a little under 18K and just over 12K out of the last set (too much straight line riding on the second set) Very good traction in the rain and I did go through some serious rain.
I'll post additional reviews after I return in August I should have some worthwhile input after taking the long way around to the BMW MOA Rally the end of July.
P.S. I have finally retired so it is time for some serious touring I put 33K on this bike in the first 11 months and I was working.

Tread life did not match product advertisements.
I did not get the tread life I expected after hearing the Mfr. claims. After a 16 day trip in June, 2014, from Washington State to SF, to Las Vegas, to St. George, to Page, to Siver City, NM, to Great Falls, Mt. and Home, 6,000 miles I had to remove for a small 2800 trip to Lake Tahoe the following week. I figured the tire good for another 1500 miles. Why buy 4's when I'm getting over 9000 from PR-3's. I have had 29 sets of tires, most with multiple tries. The 3's have been excellent on all accounts.

excellent tire
Haven't ridden in the wet yet or to the end of their tread life. I just switched from the pilot 3 gt on my bmw gt1200 which I got a little over 11k miles. The 3s were excellent very predictable handling. My mistake that I made with them was to keep the tire pressure @39 lbs instead of 42 psi which is the manufacturers recommendation. The front tire showed cupping due to the lower pressure. With the 4s I hope to get 12k miles on them and I'll pay attention to the pressure. Tires showed up in 2days great to deal with" the rev"

Nice Grippy Touring tire
Just put on a new set of Michelin Pilot Road 4 GT Tires on my K1600GT. Have not had the chance to ride in the rain and have only put about 600 miles on them so far so I can't rate them on tread life or wet traction. Very smooth riding tires with plenty of grip.(Way better then the stock tires) Handle the weight of the GT very well.

Incredibly Long Life, Good Performance Sport Touring Tire
I've used Pilot Road 3's on my sport touring bikes in the past, and the Pilot Road 4's are just as good with slightly longer life.

Wet traction is awesome, dry traction is good too. It's the perfect tire for a big sport tourer. On my K1300S, I get almost 10k miles out of a rear.

Have used Michelin Pilot 3 and enjoyed the performance enhancements over the Bridgestone tire. After 9K miles and getting ready for a 6K mile cross country trip time for new tires. Initially torn between Metzler longer wearing performance tires for my FJR1300 but the Road Pilot 4 with 20% increase tire life performance for me made it a clear winner. Time and miles will see???? But I have always had good luck with both Metzler and Michelin tires on my R1100RT and FJR1300.

I have an '06 SV1000S. The majority of the riding I do involves loaded saddlebags and my girlfriend as a passenger. Should I go with the PR4 or PR4GT?
A shopper on Sep 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Your bike weighs about 460-470lb wet.

The GT is intended for bikes heavier than the R1200RT (570lb without luggage), like the K1600GTL (770lb).

Prevailing wisdom says a solo RT rider would be OK with the regular PR4s.

I opted for GTs. I have an RT, with Pelican topcase and BMW side cases. Fully loaded with passenger that's probably 950lb.

If you, your girlfriend, and your saddlebags add up to 500lb or more, get the GTs. Otherwise, you're probably fine with the regular PR4s.
I ride a 2013 R1200RT. The video suggests the GT tire because of the weight of the bike. Do I need GT's on the front and rear or can I get the GT for just the read and the regular PR4 for the front????
Thanks
Sickticket on May 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hi Peter,

You could go standard PR4 on the front but you would potentially go through front tires faster than you already do. The GT has a slightly harder compound in the center and I have GTs front and rear on my R1150RT. I came off PR3s and I can't say that the 4s are a groundbreaking improvement over the 3s but I suspect they will last longer and I do like them. That being said, I have had no concerns about the harder compound and finished several rides in the rain with excellent performance. If your concern is that they front tire will lack grip because of the harder compound I would have no fear unless you are truly planning on riding to your and the bikes utmost potential. What I like most is that they don't have a release compound from the molding process like tires from several years ago. They are reasonably sticky right out of the box and are ready for action after a few miles and a few sharp corners.
I ride a FJR 1300 and currently have a PR3 on the front and a PR on the rear that needs replacement. I weigh in with gear around 250lbs and rarely ride two up or carry much of a load, do I need a PR4 GT or standard? Is there another tire you would recommend over the PR_?
Thank you,
JC
A shopper on Aug 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I ride a K1600GT, so fitted the PR4GT. It has a stiffer sidewall and works better if you have a flat. I was pleased with them, but I have fitted 2 sets of Pirelli Angel GTs since the PR4. I took the PR4 off at 5000 miles because I had a 5000 mile trip coming up and they looked about half worn. PR4 GTs were out of stock everywhere at the time, so I mounted the Pirellis, which I much prefer, but will remount the PR4 GTs to use up the rest of rubber.
That being said I have 2 FJR1300 riding buddies who both mounted PR4GTs and are very happy with them.
Hi Folks,
I'm looking at getting a set of the PR 4's for my 2005 BMW R1150 GSA. I ride almost exclusively on the road, without a pillion so my question is do I get the PR4 Trails or the GT ones?
Thanks
A shopper on Apr 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have a Yamaha FJR and I had before PR3 and they where great on road i got 17,000 miles and probably would still done another 2,000 but i put new PR4 GT allready So far i got over a 1,000 miles on them and they are great
If you are riding only on pavement i would suggest to buy a GT. because trail wersion of pr4 are softer and they will wear quicker on pavement.
I took my PR3 before on gravel roads and you just have to becareful and you will be fine.
I have a buell xb9sx. the current curb weight is 375 plus me. i was wondering if i need the gt versions or not. I never have luggage or ride 2 up?

Thanks
A shopper on Feb 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No you don't need the GT version. The stiffer side wall was designed for the BMW K1600 and it weighs 830 lbs! It a great tire that handles really great in the twistys.

GT
I have a Yamaha FJ-09 Sport touring bike. Need rear tire. I ride 2 up often. Wondering if I need the Pilot Rd4 or Pilot Rd 4 GT's. THe bike is only 460 lbs, but with me ( 270# and the wife, 120#) add another 390 lbs plus 25 # top box and some light gear. Any suggestions?
Timothy H on Oct 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Timothy
I ride a BMW R 1200RT bike weight 571 lb without top box. the PR4 GT is the recommended tire for my bike. The GT is designed for heavier bikes there is no mention directled to rider passenger or loaded weight. I would recommend that you contact Michelin directly. I have asked questions of the Michelin representative at BMW rallies in the past and they were more than happy to field such questions.
I will say the PR4's for me out performed the PR3's especially in the rain.
Hope this helps.
Bob
GT vs standard. Different tread compound, or just carcass (stiffness) or both?
Thanks
Minipepper on Jul 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: one extra belt, just stiffer. ok for the rear though.
I ride a CBR250r which is relatively very light compare to those sport touring motorbike. Will this PilotRoad 4 performs well in a much lighter bike? I really am considering this tire since its wet traction performance is one of the key difference compare with other tires in the market.
A shopper on Jul 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I would not put the "GT" on a light bike as it is made specifically for heavier Sport Tourers. The standard Pilot Road 4 (as well as the standard Pilot Road 3 should work well on your CBR250. I put the Pilot Road 4 on a BMW R1200ST. The previous tire was a Pilot Road 3 and I got 14,000 miles on the front tire and over 9,000 on the rear. Traction, both wet and dry was far superior to the Dunlop and Continental tires I had used previously.
I am going to purchase a set of these in the near future for my 2014 BMW R1200RT. For the front I know I need a 120/70...but the 58W/59W is throwing me off. Which on fits my bike or is there not a difference? Thanks.
Scott B on Nov 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 58W is what you want. Really there is no choice (per Michelin web site). The 59W is for the 18 inch tire. Your RT runs 17 inch.
I ride an 04 gsxr 750. I ride it all the time rain or shine, for commuting and for fun. I noticed that revzilla put the PR4 tires in the "touring tire" section and left it out of the "sport tire section" where as the PR3's are in both sections.. Does this mean that the PR4's are primarily for touring bikes? Because I would still like to have the grip and agility of a sportbike tire but I also want to be safe for riding in the rain. What tire would you recommend? The PR4's or the PR3's?
A shopper on Jul 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I bought and mounted a road 4 GT on the rear my 08 Concours 14. I bought it for the extended tread life and rain rating as I was about to run a 48-10 and was concerned my tires would not make it thru the trip. They did; 8400 miles in 9 days and plenty of tread left on them. Much of this trip was pounding pavement straight up... but not all, That said, I am definitely a sport touring fanatic and the tire corners and grips well. I will finish this season out on this tire and probably ride into next spring. This tire has a harder center section for the extra mileage combined with a softer compound on the sides. My understanding is the rubber on the sides is the same compound as the road 3's on the side. The GT has extra sidewall rigidity for heavy bikes that get thrown around a lot or ride 2 up frequently. I debated the extra few dollars for the GT, I'm glad I did as I ran loaded with gear, luggage and lots of extra tools just in case. I have no traction control features on my bike and rely only on the skill of my wrists to aid me when I lay her over in a turn. Only once did the tire break loose as I laid into it way leaned over. I'm pretty sure it was the twitch in my wrist that caused it more the tires inability to hold me and the bike in a turn.
