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

Michelin Pilot Road 4 Rear Tires 4.8 5 158 158
Currently The Best Tire Money Can Buy I commute daily and tour from state to state as well. The PR4 is hands down the best tire I've ever found. Cornering, turn-in, smooth ride, exceptional wear. They do it all. I use them on a 2001 Bonneville cafe racer, where they stick and corner like they're on rails. I also use them on my Harley FLD for touring and camping. The GT-series on the rear handles the additional weight and load perfectly. After going through dozens of different tires, brands and combinations, this is the winner. Buy with confidence... November 25, 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
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
Great Tire Exactly as reviewed by REVZILLA. Bought the tire and received it the next day! November 2, 2015
Awesome tire, even better service Bought these to replace the set I already had. 14,000 miles, and the rear is ready to change, just doing the front because I like it to be even. Not one bad thing to say about them. Ordered on a Tuesday at 1pm, and they were at my door Wednesday by 2pm. Amazing. October 29, 2015
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 I got a nail in my stock Dunlop tire so I read up some reviews on what the best tire for my 2014 Yamaha FZ09 was. I ordered this tire and was absolutely blown away. It is a night and day difference and I have so much more confidence while riding through curves. I would recommend this tire to anyone, it is great. October 5, 2015

I am now in need to replace the rear tire, which has netted me about twice the miles as what I used to get with a regular tire. Due to the multi compound tire, I have gained miles and haven't noticed any loss of traction in the corners. Awesome set of tires. I am now a multi compound tire convert!

Katherine S: Want too see how good this tie is stove everyone writers a good review all the time Mar 15, 2015
Mark B: I cover 500+ miles per week on SoCal freeways. Need something that will give longer mileage thru the center of the tire, but will still hang in the canyons once a month. Expensive tire tho! Mar 14, 2015
steven p: was camping in nc and bumped into a guy who swore he got close to 10,000 miles on a pilot 3. so I can imagine that a pilot 4 naturally would be better. he was from ohio. I didn't believe him so I went to your site and did some research. I was impressed with the stats. I have a TL1000s Suzuki, and I'm not afraid to say its got the most head snapping torque I've ever had on two wheels. Tires don't stand a chance, but we'll give this one a burn through the valley. Mar 9, 2015

George R: I had the PR1, PR2, and have the PR3's. Every pair was better than the last. So I figure the PR4's are going to be an improvement because they keep getting better. I've never been disappointed and they've never let me down. I have a K1200R BMW. The PR2 & PR3's gave me 10,000-12,000 so I can see 12-13,000 with the PR4's Oct 2, 2014
John M: PR 4's have good reviews and my bike needed new tires. Oct 2, 2014
Carlos S: Previous experience with Pilot Road 3. High mileage (7,500!) and excellent grip on my K1300S. Sep 28, 2014

the front still has the road 3 from last Oct 2013.
the rear road 3 tire is still great on the sides...but the center seems worn down...been doing a lot more freeway driving recently. Like 4k mi in the last 3 months.

bike is a 2012 CBR600 RR

buying this tire ahead of the rainy season cause I want to make sure I have the tire before I need it =)

will prob swap the rear road 3 @ 20k miles
Aug 9, 2014

derek s: i went to a buell forum and found out that most were using Michelin, dunlop, metzeler, and bridgestone, after finding the most info about price and performance i could i ran some numbers and decided the michelin pr4's should be the best all around with performancel, reliabitly and overall value with all things considered

Jul 6, 2014

S A: I was looking for a tire that would last driving to work and capable of sharper angles around corners. Jul 2, 2014

Steven K: Awesome Tire!! Jun 11, 2014
Richard R: I have been using the PR3's for over 3 years and 60K miles on my Honda NT700VA. The tires were incredible in all handling conditions and tire life was exceptional. Finally wore out my rear PR3 and have seen only great reviews about the PR4's, so I'm moving up to them too. Jun 10, 2014
Piper C: Purchased Michelin Pilot Road 3 tires last year. I have been very pleased with them. I got 16K on my first set, and I expect to get 18k out of my current set. Can't go wrong with PR4's. Jun 9, 2014
Ray L: I have 5K miles on these so far. The rear on my K1600GTL is nearing the wear bars so...I am ordering a second set. They sure do inspire confidence in the twistys! Wear could be better but....They are better than the Metzler Z8's that came on the bike Jun 6, 2014
Deborah L: I've had very good success with Pilot Road 3 on my 2013 F800 GT BMW getting over 21,000 miles on it. Looking to get 20% more running the Pilot Road 4. Jun 3, 2014
ty T: Life span May 30, 2014
Jason C: These tires give amazing grip. They warm up super quick and really feel good when you push them. I had Diablo's on my triumph from the dealer and they already wore out after 5,000 miles. Kind of a small life but these have lasted me closer to 10,000 easier on my previous bike. May 27, 2014
Gregory V: No better tire! May 13, 2014
Nelson S: Recommended for M696 my daily commute ride. May 13, 2014

Thomas H: looking for a sport touring tire that might last more that one season...! May 1, 2014
Fernando B: Reviews set this as one of the best, id rather buy once and get a long lasting tire than buy multiple tires that will weara often Apr 23, 2014
Robert M: Michelins are the best rubber out there!! Apr 21, 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
Gary M: Listened to your video on the internet . Jan 31, 2014
Carlos C: ok Jan 28, 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
Robert F: Reccomendation of friend that has Pilot Road 3s. Jan 4, 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! Jan 23, 2014

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: I just got an 06' GSXR 750. I am a year round rider in the Portland, OR area.
There is a ton of rain here and was wondering if I should go with the Pilot Road 3 or 4, and since I am looking for a new tire, should I go with a 190/55 while I am at it? Or just stick with the stock size?

Gail M: Hi Brad I have two parts to this answer 1) I am a firm believer that the manufacturer has spent a fair amount of a gazillion dollars on R&D on your GSXR and think that if the design and suspension called for a larger tire to maximize handling... they would have done so! 2) as for the Mich. product I would go for the PR 4 I think they have worked the bugs out of the last design. I have run both on my FJR 1300 and am very happy with the 4 the traction with the 4 is MUCH improved. The 3 I ran had surprisingly had started to cup on me (partly my fault due to lack of PSI) Now run 42 F&R the wet traction is great (my opinion) but any wet traction claims are a personal confidence level more than anything (jus my 2 cents) I don't think you will be disappointed with the PR 4s and get some extra miles too!

Samuel K: I live in SW Florida, ride year-round and I would recommend the Road 4 any day of the week for wet weather riding. The Road 3 will give you better grip in the dry, less good (not bad) in the wet, and will last about 1/2 to 2/3 as long as a set of Road 4's. Road 4's were designed to balance tire life with performance and still beat the road 3 in wet conditions. Stick with your stock size if at all possible as exceeding your rim size can change the tire profile and accelerate wear. I own a Kahana 600 with Road 4 tires and a VFR800 with pilot powers. Even though the VFR is a sweeter ride I'm on the Kat in rainy weather cause of the confidence those tires inspire. Oct 19, 2014

George L: I would definitely go with the P4. It has better wear characteristics with no discernible loss of "stickiness" through the twisties. I ride a Multistrada with similar HP as your bike...you'll be fine with this tire. And, obviously, it's great in the wet....a primary focus for this tire. As an aside, I just came back from a scorching (speed) 4600 mile tour with miles to spare. Oct 19, 2014

Dennis P: I use the fours on my Panigale S. I live on the Oregon coast. They are a great value given the potential mileage they get, Great on wet roads andwhen I bought mine they were cheaper than the threes. I ride them hard in the corners. No chicken strip. I used the threes on my 996 Ducati. Cant say anything negative about them. Stay with your stock size. Oct 20, 2014

A shopper asked: What should one expect when operating these tires over the cited 113°F? Would it merely reduce life? Would it hinder performance, specifically by loss of traction? Would degradation be predictable? Would it fail catastrophically? This is relevant, as Southern Arizona sees 110°F most every year. Sep 23, 2015

Jesse B: Ha! But on the bright side, one can ride all year with a little planning or perseverence.
I'm struggling to find information on how tires start to fail at high ambient temp; this multiple-hardness-composite-materials thing for this tire in particular that has me worried.
I might just try this tire and hope for the best, but am hopeful for information on this problem first.

Christian H: No catastrophic failure. I think you'd probably just get a lot of good traction and wear would be greater, but I live in a hot climate and ride all summer, I haven't seen any issues, in fact, the wear is slower than the PR3, Dunlops and Conti's I've had before. Oct 24, 2015

John W: My dealer was perfectly happy to mount tires I got from Revzilla. I liked that they did professional balancing as well -- but it turns out that recommended inflation pressure varies by bike, and they didn't bother to dial in to the bike specific specs from the bike manufacturer, so I had to tweak that myself. So bottom line is, find a shop with a great attitude, make sure they do balancing also, and check the pressure for front and back versus what the bike maker recommends. Nov 11, 2014

The mixed road/dirt tires that came on my machine are spent at 3K Mi and completely flat in the middle.

Joseph A. M: I installed these tires on my Yamaha FZ6R in June 2014 & have only ridden in dry conditions so I don't know what they are like in wet weather. We had a cool summer here in Michigan so all I can tell you is this, after I installed these tires there was a 100% improvement in the handling of my bike & I would definitely buy these tires again. If they can improve the handling on my beginner bike that much I can't imagine how much they will improve the performance on your BMW. As for long tire wear I only put on 1600 miles on my bike last summer & I don't see any wear at all yet. As far as I can see these are great tires & should serve well in all conditions. Feb 20, 2015

Richard G: It's a great tire period. I cannot say about how it handles in snow because we just have not had any in Southwest Florida in a very long time. Michelin puts a lot of silica in their compound so it really handles well in turns on wet roads. I'm on a 2015 K1300S and I put 2,000 miles a month on the tires and I lean them right to the edge all the time. I commute the half mile (each way) work every day, ride 100 miles Tuesday evenings and 350 to 400 miles on Saturdays doing the back roads. The tire is extremely stable and will make your bike feel like a whole new ride. I average about 10,000 miles on a set of tires and don't sacrifice and performance. Feb 22, 2015

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.

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.

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.

Richard G: The PR4's are an excellent tire for what you are doing. The center is very hard and will give you great wear. The sides are soft enough that you will not have any trouble going to a track day either. The new compound that Michelin is using will give you a whole new feeling on your bike. It is like they flicked a switch and all of a sudden the bike is more stable then it has ever been before the new tires. Dec 24, 2014

Arrigan H asked: Hi, I'm trying to make a decision about which tire to buy. I mostly commute in the city but accelerate hard when available, and twisty mountain roads once every month. Not much rainy days here. I make about 500miles every month.
Alternatives are:
This PR4,
Pilot Power 3,
Pirelli MT60 RS Corsa
Avon Distanzia SM
I know the last 2 are very soft and low milage but they look fantastic!
All of them are about 460$ in my country...At this price level last 2 alternative seems luxury but I want them! =)
So what do you recommend?

Alan G: I have the PR4 tires, and coming from the Battlax tires I had on before, I have to say these are incredible. I put about 500 miles a week commuting on highway and spur-of-the-moment road trips. Since these are dual compound, they stay hard in the center so they won't square off and soft on the edges so you have plenty of grip in the corners. With tires as expensive as they are where you're from, you want something that will last you a long time! I think these may be your best bet. Also, function over form. Tires may look nice, but you don't see them when you're on the bike ;) Oct 21, 2014

lance m: i have experience with the pr3 and pr4. the pr3 are excellent tires that lasted me 7k before replacing with the pr4's.
i drive mostly back twisty roads. the pr3's were very good and i felt very confident with the holding power. the tires made me feel like i was on a gyroscope. as they wore, less so.
i replaced them with the updated pr4's and feel very confident that these tires are as good or better than the pr3's. other interests have reduced my overall mileage this year, so i can't confirm the longevity of the tire wear.
i would recommend the pr4's as being a quality all around tire for my sport touring bike. i especially like the holding power in turns, the confidence i feel riding with them and the relative durability of wear.

Joseph L: Based on what other riders claim, and also my experience, having the PR4 on the front and the PR3 on the back is the best combination for this model/brand of tire. The PR3 rear is a little grippier for that spirited riding but both tires will last quite a while on the bike, and are excellent rain tires. I believe this is the best choice as you're mainly commuting.

If you wanted a second set of tires for spirited riding, the Corsa is perfect. But not if you're commuting most of the time.

Robert M: They offer 3 TYPE Pilot 4's The trail that u won't need seeing u will not be trail riding. The Gt which is a tire set up more for a heavier bike/ cruiser. With Ur bike I feel that the pilot 4 standard will be the right tire for Ur type of riding. I own a 09 Yamaha FZ1 and bought these same ones and I absolutely love these tires. I do all road riding and these tires by far are the best in the industry for sport touring. Great tire u will be happy with these. Sep 22, 2014

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.

A shopper asked: Rember C.
I have a 2014 ZX-10r ABS, I commute a lot. I recently bought my bike March 1, 2015 and i am at 7,500 miles today. I want to try the pilot road 4 or pilot power 3. I am leaning more toward a commuting tire. Just wanted an idea. I already rode on the Pilot Power 3 on my 2013 ZX-6r, and love the feel of the tires. A huge difference from the tires that came with the bike?

George S: I commute 130 miles a day rain or shine on my 2012 ZX14R. The Pilot Road 4 GTs have been flawless. No slips in the rain and plenty of grip in the dry. Bike turn in and response and overall comfort is better than with the stock tires. The stock tires lasted 2100 miles. I have 1500 on the PR4 GTs and they are not showing any signs of wear yet.

Michelle W: A better question is what sizes are compatible with your bike's rear rim. I know my bike can take a 180 or a 190, I stick with 180 because that is what came on it and best fits my riding style. Jul 20, 2014

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

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: I need a front tire on my BMW R1100RT. I've ridden on various Pilot Road tires for years. I would like to get the new Pilot Road 4 for the front, but they don't make a 4 for the rear (18" rim), and Michelin doesn't recommend mixing tires on a motorcycle. Does anyone have experience riding with a 4 on the front and a 3 on the rear? Otherwise, I'll have to stay with 3's on both ends. I have mixed earlier generations with no difficulties. Jun 11, 2015

George L: J

The best advice....use matching tires but it's my guess you raise the question because Michelin doesn't make a P4 in the appropriate size for your bike. I have mismatched tires on occasion when I couldn't get the right size (in a matching set) at the time of tire change. When that happens I'm very careful to ride with the recognition that the adhesion properties of the mismatched tires need to included in the calculus of appropriate corner speed, traction conditions, etc. In summary don't do it unless it's the only way to get you home.

A shopper asked: I know this question has been asked for similar situations/bikes., but my main question regards to cornering..Im currently running
Pirelli Angel GT front and rear, on my Ducati Multistrada 1200s GT..there nearing the end of there life, as Ive racked up nearly 10,000 on them.
The rear is squared in the middle, and the front, has a small amount of cupping, either side of center, but a fair bit of tread left.
im very happy with the handling of these tires, and am very aggressive in on/off ramps, and twistys .
How do you think the Pilot 4s compare in cornering with the Pirellis?

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?
