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.

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

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
Fast shipping Keep in mind that i am writing this in regards to shipping. I needed new tires asap on my kawasaki so i ordered these tires on a tuesday received them on thursday super fast shipping thanks revzilla. As the performance goes I'm pretty sure they will do awesome as i heard many great reviews on them but i will have to tell you my experiences a bit later. July 21, 2014
Incredible tires I have had these on my street triple for 90 days and right at 8000 miles. They replaced my worn out Diablo corsas. Here is my verdict: 1. These stick to varied road conditions like stink on a garbage pile. Super high heat stick and excellent wet weather traction Like all tires they don't do well with the tar road snakes. 2. Great mileage wear. I didn't expect to get this many miles and they are just now beginning to square off. I haven't noticed the square when I tip in for twisties but I may get another 3000 miles out of this tire. 3 Temperature ranges I used these in was from 111 degrees down to freezing. Never felt loose except after about 2 hours of serious canyon carving. 4. Price. Essentially I got the front and rear for the price of 1 tire thru Revzilla. Thanks! July 21, 2014
Seem good so far Required a lot of weight to balance. Feels great compared to the old squared off tires, but new ones always do. Grip on a damp road was very good, had to really try to get the rear to break loose. July 16, 2014
Best tire I have put on my bike. Replaced a set of Continental Road Attack 2's that wore out at 2400 miles. The Pilot Road 4's have better grip and it feels like the distance to stop has been reduced also. I highly recommend them. A big improvement on my F800GT. 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
good tired for the money Drive it everyday it's a good all-around tire wet or dry conditions June 30, 2014

Gary G: Heard nothing but good things about these tires. Apr 6, 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.

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.

Gail M: Hi I had read the reviews and all the information available at the time , I would consider the GT for your application.

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.

A shopper asked: I ride a 1993 CBR1000F and I am in need of tires. Which would be a better tire, the Pilot road 4 or the road 4 GT? My riding consists of a 100 mile round trip commute monday through friday. On the weekends I to get my lean on in the twisty Southern California Canyons. An example would be the Angeles crest Highway, Ortega, and the back side of Palomar mountain. I don't ride overtly fast but I do like to lean.
Since I do 2K a month just in commuter miles tire life is a priority.

Mike L: I've only had the PR4 on my 2011 Concours 14 a couple weeks. I commute and run long distances, dont ride fast or take lots of hard corners. If the 4 lasts like a Pilot Road 3, I got 14.5K and 15K out of my last two rear PR3 rear tires. That included fairly steady speed trips from Oregon to Florida, Oregon to Arizona, Oregon to Minnisota, etc. Regardless, 15,000 miles on the rear of a 140hp, 750 lbs motorclycle impressed me enough to try the next generation.

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.

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

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

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?

Jonathan S: I found that the Metzlers that came on my Explorer (12) were a damn good tire for that bike and will be going back to them once I've worn these Karoo 3s out. Jan 28, 2014

Robert G asked: the product detail talks about a GT version, but I do not see that offered. Is that something that will be offered in the future? Jan 13, 2014

A S: The GT version is on their site and if you buy both tires its only a 10 dollar difference between the regular ones. Jan 19, 2014

A shopper asked: Additional sizes in the works? 120/70 R19 & 180/55 R18 for an early VRod? Jan 6, 2014

Ian C: I wouldn't expect to see this tire in the 18-inch size for the early VRod rear wheel. However, the Pilot Road 4 Trail does come in the 120/70 R19 size. Jan 8, 2014
