Michelin Pilot Road 4 Rear 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

Sticky on the sides, long wear in the middle: what's not to like? I bought this tire for my son, who previously had a Pilot 2. He really liked the Pilot 4, and I had to work to keep up with him in the twisties. Unfortunately, he had to part with his ride before he got a lot of use out of the tire. April 14, 2014
Very new...not a lot of time on this one yet Excellent dry grip...havent seen rain yet..only 400 miles..feel confident in corners..handle very very well. over all like better than the 3's..have had many 3's and still have . these are installed on my 2010 Multistrada S touring April 10, 2014
Excellent tire for the touring/commuting/weekend rider I purchased the Michelin Pilot Road 4 front and rear tires to replace the Pirelli Phantom's on my Ducati GT1000, and so far, they have been excellent. We'll have to wait and see what happens with the mileage and the thread life, but there seemed to be an immediate impact in the area of feel and steering for the bike. Yes, it could be just psychological, but I feel more confident on the bike as a result of these tires. FYI, I'm not a track guy. I commute when I can on weekdays, and occasionally take the bike out on weekends to explore back roads and such. These tires seem like a perfect fit for this type of rider profile. A+ April 9, 2014
How do you improve on something great? I don't know but I think they did. My previous tire was the same model (2 years older), and when I put this guy on -- my bike felt reborn. The new ratio to hard/soft compounds is absolute perfection for my riding style. March 31, 2014
Sport bike handling on R1200GS This tire on bmw r1200gs is fantastic. Smooth running and excellent handling. If you have a gs and want to know what an rt rides Like. Try a set of these. February 23, 2014
Simply the Best! These are the best tires I have ever had on any of my motorcycles hands down. With the ajusted rear tire rubber I can tell they are going to last longer then the MPR3"s and have awesome traction! January 29, 2014
Great tire! Have about 200 miles on them so far and they're excellent! Expensive, but worth the price. I seem to wobble more on grooved highways, but I assume that's because of the better grip. January 27, 2014

Paul V: I had a set of P3s and really liked them, figured the P4's will be better Apr 17, 2014
L O: I'm a middle-aged married guy who commutes on my motorcycle rain or shine. I've been running Q2 Sportmax tires which are very sticky in nice weather but they are not the best tire in the rain. I hope that the Pilot 4 is as good in the rain as the write-ups suggest. Apr 14, 2014
Gary G: Heard nothing but good things about these tires. Apr 6, 2014
Geoffrey C: Good reviews and user feedback from the Michelin Road / Pilot line. Chose the Pilot 4 for a Speed Triple because it is reported to have a good balance between commute durability and sportiness. Apr 2, 2014
Michael H: Need rear upgrade for my 2007 Honda Interceptor 25 Anniversary Edition. Mar 25, 2014
Benjamin B: locked up the back brake and flat spotted my PR3 :( but $10 in Revzilla cash allowed me to get the newer tire for cheaper than the old one! :D Mar 13, 2014
Jacob M: Only reason I am ordering this tire was my PR3 I ordered in August that I had for a week blew out after I ran over a large piece of metal in my work parking lot. I'm hoping that they perform just as good if not better then the PR3s Feb 22, 2014
gary h: I have a set of these on my R1150RTP. Based on what I'm seeing I should get about 14K miles, They stick well when leaned over and in the wet. Feb 18, 2014
Sean H: I wanted an all around motorcycle tire for daily riding and supurb traction on wet and dry surfaces. Feb 15, 2014

Frederick N: After completing hours of research these are the best choice hands down!!! Jan 18, 2014
Rich S: Reviews on this tire indicate it is better than the Pilot 2 2CT that my son raved about. Jan 13, 2014
Dennis P: I have a hyper sport bike. An 1199S. I ride in Oregon and there is always a chance that I can get caught in heavy rain. I used the Road 3 on my 996 for years and had great wet and dry grip in all conditions. Also getting twice the mileage on these tires is an added plus.
I also know riders using these tires at track days who have matched their lap times compared to the Pirelli OEM tires.
Jan 11, 2014
JR P: I picked these tires because I had a good experience with the Pilot Road 3s and I will report back when I install these and put some miles on them. Jan 10, 2014
Johnnie B: Needed new tires for my motorcycle, these fit the bill. Jan 6, 2014

A shopper asked: Converting my dedicated Aprilia track bike over to do some street duty so I can get more enjoyment out of it and save on gas. Have slicks for track days, but looking to get a street tire for commuting around and day trips down to Phoenix from Flagstaff. Would you recommend the Road 4 or 3 for my sportbike considering that the 3 has medium/soft vs the hard/medium of the 4? Maybe run a 4 up front and 3 in rear or would I be better off with a pair of Pilot Power 2ct since there are some fun curvy roads around here? Thanks, and keep up the reviews they really help!

Kyle A: Definitely the Road4's. The hard compound middle is the key to avoiding flat spotting with daily road riding. You'll still be able to get aggressive in corners. I only got about 4500 miles out of my pilot power 2ct's due to excessive flat spotting in the middle, the edges are still good. Feb 1, 2014

A shopper asked: Hi guys..

I'm about to purchase a new bike (BMW k1300s)

Is the pr4 the one for me, or should it be the pr4 GT tyre? The bike are not that heavy, but it not light either. Around 250kg *ready for the road*

I'll be riding alone 50-70% of the time! the last 30% would be with a passenger and some time with full luggage. (3bags an tent etc)

The temp here in dk are from spring to fall 15-25-10 degrees Celsius.

My driving will be long trips with a passenger and full luggage (not every year) and then a lot of small roads speed cruising.

Cheers.

Gail M: Hi I had read the reviews and all the information available at the time , I would consider the GT for your application. As with any new model/series of tires the greater amount of direct feedback from the users will give you the best recommendations.

wagner s: Hello! Awesome I wish you luck with your new bike :) from what you said, the GT is a fit for you. They are meant for longevity and I believe that you will benefit from that. Unless you are planning to hit the curves hard then you'll have no problem with the GTs. Ride safe! Mar 22, 2014

mike m: Hello...I think the pr4 would be a great choice. I ride a Yamaha FJR1300 and could not be more happy with how the pr4 is performing. Amazing traction in all road condition. I have similar ridding requirements and am completely confident in the pr4. Mar 22, 2014

Michael J asked: I have a 2010 KTM 690 Duke with Pilot Power Tires. The bike only has 1600 miles on it and the rear tire is worn out in the center. The front tire is in great condition. Honestly, I'm not a wheelie king - I'm 59 y.o.! So, I'd like a replacement rear tire with more longevity. Can I mix the existing front Pilot Power with the Pilot Road 3 on the rear? Is there another tire that might offer more longevity? I've read the Continental Road Attack is a great tire. Should I consider it? Most of my riding is in town and country roads. Mar 3, 2014

joe g: I put road 3's on my r1200rt beemer, bike weighs 600lb with bags and im 250 so theres 850 lbs. i ride fast and love twisties. i bought a set of road 4's this winter because of the low price and to have a set ready when i need them, the 4's are supposed to get 20% better milage. when they came i compared them to the 3's and honestly the 3's are less than half gone. I've got 10,ooo miles on the 3's and am amazed. as far as mixing them i can't say for sure, but over the last fifty years i,'ve been riding i have mixed tires without any problems, always bias with bias or radial with radial. I ride 15,000 miles a year or more. these are the first michelins i've owned and they feel great. I will never have any other brand of tire, and trust me i've had every brand on many different bikes. I'm 66 y/o and ride them like i stole them. Mar 3, 2014

Benjy Y: Michael, It isn't safe to mix 2 dissimilar handling tires on the same bike. I mixed the PR4 on the front and PR3 on the rear of my ninja because the PR4 is just the next iteration of the same tire. You never want to mix 2 different handling tires on a bike or a car as you get different handling results. Personally I'd replace both tires with the PR4 (you said PR3) so one doesn't allow more aggressive handling that the other just can't- even if you aren't pushing it to the limit. Hope that helps.

Rich S: There is a two-part mold marking on the tire. The first part looks like it was in the original mold and it says "Made in". The second part looks like it was an additional sub mold or melted in later. It says "Spain". So my tire says it was made in Spain. Surprised me, too.

Sean H: The pilot 4 GT are made for a heavier sport touring bike for people riding two up. it has a hard center compound to accommodate the extra weight. The pilot 4 roads for me on my yzf600r are speed rated at 168mph which my bike only tops out at 150. Hopefully this answers your question as I only have about 200 miles on my pilot 4 roads and I'm loving the handling and the performance of them already in wet and dry conditions. Feb 27, 2014

Eric W asked: Question 1: I see the PR4s come in 150/70R17 for rear tires, but they don't come in 110/80R19 in the front? Isn't this a common pairing? Please confirm.

I ride a Triumph Explorer. I usually don't run strictly street tires, but will be riding the ALCAN this summer and will for that purpose. Many have great things to say about the PR3s (which come in 150/70R17 and 110/80R19), and I was planning on putting those on for the ride, then Michelin comes out with the PR4s.

Question 2: I see the PR4 Trails come in my size, but what is the benefit of those over the PR3? They have almost identical dual layering compared to the PR3s (and why call them "trail" tires if they are designed for street use only?)

Question 3: Besides durability increases with the new med/hard/med construction, do we expect performance increases/decreases of the new dual layering over the soft/med/soft of the PR3s?

Sorry for the long question. Thanks for you time.

Samuel K: Answer #1: You might just be able to run a 120 on your front rim. My Katana 600 calls for a 110/70 front and 140/70 rear from the factory but the 120/70 front and 150/70 rear work just fine. Google will tell you if this is possible for your bike.

Answer #2: The trail tires are made for "adventure" and dual-sport bikes that just *might* see some dirt. Not the same as a knobby off-road-only tire by any means. These are designed to be used primarily on paved roads with the occasional dirt or gravel path underfoot. Beyond this, I cannot say how they compare to the PR3.

Answer #3: From what I understand, the newer compound will not only improve longevity but also wet-weather grip at the cost of dry-weather performance. Expect significantly decreased stopping distance in wet conditions and slightly less stickiness at extreme lean angles on dry pavement. Most riders can not safely utilize the full extent of the tire's traction anyway so this seems a moot point to me. Even for a rider skilled enough to exceed the capabilities of these tires, pushing those limits on the street would be unwise to say the least.

Gordon W asked: I currently have Pilot Road 3's on my BMW R1200ST. Most of us wear out the rear tire before the front. When it comes time to change the rear tire, do you think it is a bad idea to have a Pilot Road 3 on the front, and a Pilot Road 4 on the rear? Jan 13, 2014

Robert F: I ALWAYS change my tires in pairs. I love the feeling of 2 new tires .... and since the front is the most important, I definitly do not hesitate paying to have it replaced slightly before it's time. Jan 16, 2014
Reply to Robert Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Eric W: Do add to this question, would be a technical, safety, or performance issue if we were to mount a new PR3 on the front and a new PR4 on the rear? This would be true for Gordon as well since it looks like they don't make 110/80R19 in the PR4, except the Trail version which is basically the same dual layering as the PR3. Jan 21, 2014

A shopper asked: Question 1: I find it odd that Michelin is supplying PR4 rear tires in 150/70R17, but no fronts in 110/80R19? Can you confirm this?

I ride a Triumph Explorer, and generally don't run strictly street tires, but I'm riding the ALCAN this summer and will be using streets for that ride. I see that the PR4s come in my size in the Trail version (why call it a trail tire if they are designed for street use only??) as well as the PR3s. I'm interested in extreme durability, street only, wet/dry surface.

Question 2: Can you explain the benefit, if any, of the new medium/hard/medium construction of the PR4s over the soft/med/soft of the PR3s? Is it just for durability? Is there an expected reduction or increase in performance over the PR3s?

Thanks
