No Gripe On Grip
Only had these for a few hundred miles on my '08 VStrom, but almost 80% of that was rain. I couldn't get them to slip!
In short, these tires are far more capable then my riding ability.
I was at a toss between these and the Anakee 3's. My riding is 95% street so one of the Gear Geeks recommended having the best possible traction on the street and take it a little slower on gravel/dirt etc. Glad I listened!!

Tiger Explorer-best road tire I have ever experienced
My TEX was a good bike but it had some huge tire noise and wallowed all over the road at high speeds. It was those sucky OEM Metzler Tourance EXP tires.
They lasted a measly 2000 miles before the back was flat and the front was cupped. Yanked off those #####$%^ and slapped on these Michelins.
Wow-what great tires. Quiet and grip like mad. Just did a 3000 mile trip that came back via the NC mountain roads like 276 and Georgia 60. Grips like glue. I felt glued to the road. It's the most fun you can have out of the bedroom. These tires make the bike a super bike. They are however not great off road but that's the price you pay for on road tire perfection. I have 6000 miles on them now and they still look new. Rear is real round and front has no cupping at all. There may be other tires as good or better but I ain't found it yet and would get another set for sure.

Seriously great grip on a GSW
I ride 98% road on a 14 GSW and all the reviews about this tire are well founded. Both wet and dry these tires will offer more grip than you're used to having at big lean angles and you'll embarrass a lot of the super sport bike pilots. I dont commute - just ride twisty roads at weekends. At 5,200 miles the front is looking good - about 1/4 - 1/2 worn but still has the original profile and no cupping. The rear cupps up easily and is on the side wear marks now (but cupping never given any issue). Probably another 1,000 miles on the center if you were cruising/commuting. Long time since I've not had to buy a front and rear together. Excellent tire! Gravel roads... well take it very easy as these are a road tire and it's slippery - particularly in the front.

great in the rain
I have put six thousand miles on this set of tires and have one day of four hundred in the rain on the way to Florida in July.
They grip well in dry and wet and so far the wear is slight with no flat run down the middle. I ride a GS Adventure loaded with camping gear on trips and the weight does not effect the ride. Great set of tires Tires.

Great tires, can't go wrong with these!
I just put these on my '07 V Strom that still had its original equipment tires when I got it earlier this year. The old tires were hard and did not inspire confidence in the twisties, especially with bumps or uneven surfaces. These are like night and day! I feel so much more confident in deep leans and tight corners. I have only had them for 500 miles so I can't comment on the tread life. I haven't used them in the rain so I can't comment here as well. I highly recommend these for any V Strom owner that doesn't need Adventure type tires.

Great street tire
I have a Yamaha Super Tenere and switched from Heideneu K60s to these for a 3,000 mile week long trip in the Ozarks. The tires worked well in the dry or wet. I did not encounter heavy rain but some dew in the morning. I will keep the K60s for everyday riding and day trips for surprise dirt roads since there are no curvy roads nearby, but these pilot roads are fantastic for winding pavement.

They soften up road irregularities and are fairly quiet on the highway.

Great Tire for Heavy Bikes
Overall, I'm very happy with these tires on my BMW R1200GS (150/70R17), with loads between 720 and 900 pounds. The tires ARE NOT designed for trail riding, despite their name, but can survive low pressure, off road riding (personal experience?). Again, I would not recommend them for off road riding. The only time the tires let go was acceleration across an oil patch on asphalt- think six hour old oil dump from a car. I recovered but it was a close thing! Finally, the mileage for the weight is good- I got about 10,000 miles out of the rear and could probably double the distance on the front. Now for the details!:

Pros (10k miles on rear/ ~20k miles on front):
- High mileage tire for larger bikes
- Renowned for water and wet pavement handling
- Sturdy construction can handle low pressure riding

Cons:
- Not meant for dual purpose riding (STREET ONLY)
- Tire cupping and center wear at higher miles
- Noticeable noise at higher mileage

The bomb in rain!
My wife and did a 400 mile run to the NC coast and back on our '09 R1200GS. Took the back roads down and would you believe it, the weatherman was soooo wrong. A slight chance of showers turned into 1/16th of a mile visibility, lighting strikes all around and rain and wind like a hurricane. I believe we were the only bike plowing through. The cars ahead of us were shooting plumes of water but the bike just tracked tight and straight. Even though she was not having fun, my wife through the headset, uremarked on how well the new tires were doing. Gotta love her and Michelin!

I got 6,500 mostly twisty touring miles on my rear Michelin Pilot 3. The rain grip was incredible. Michelin says that the Pilot 4 gets 20% better mileage & has improved rain performance over the Pilot 3... a win, win situation.
Mark L on Nov 3, 2015
This is my second set of Pilot Road 4 Trail tires fro my 2012 BMW R1200GS Adventure. Prior to the 4 Trails I had Pilot Road 3 on the bike. For road use its hard to beat the confidence I get in dry and wet roads with the Pilot series tires. I have gotten a little over 8,000 miles from the first set of Trails. The rear is showing more wear than the front. I like the peace of mind of fresh front and rear tires.
Since I ride mostly pavement and occasional unpaved dirt roads these work well for me.
Tom W on Sep 8, 2015
I'm replacing the one I just put on 5000 miles ago because of a puncture. GREAT TIRE!
james b on Aug 9, 2015
One of the longest lasting tires I could find for the Triumph Tiger. I put a lot of miles on my machines and I needed something that wasn't so soft I would be changing it out in a month and still had the grip in the corners. This tire met all of the criteria.
Jeff M on Jun 21, 2015

I need new tires to replace my stock tires on my V-Strom that have good tread, but are rock hard (I bought the bike used as a second owner, it only had 1900 miles in 7 years). I have heard nothing but good things about the Pilot Road 4's and they have them in the weird sized front that V-Stroms need.

I have a R1200GSA whats the difference between the pilot 4 150-70R-17 AND THE 150-70ZR-17? LOOKING TO PUT THE PILOT 4 ON THE REAR AND THE PILOT 4 TRAIL ON THE FRONT. LIKE THE IDEA OF THE HARDER CENTER.
A shopper on May 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have the Trail versions on front and rear of my GSA. I have read of other riders doing what you are planning to get some added mileage out of the rear tire. My most recent tires were the PR3 Trails front and rear. I got about 8,000 from them. The front could have gone longer but I always swap tires in pairs. If I had a do-over I might have bought the harder rear as you are planning.

I have about 500 miles on the PR4 Trails and some of that was in significant rain. I like these tires.
Looking to replace Anakee 2's on my 2010 GSA. Looking for best tires for mostly street riding. Heedenau K60, Metzler Tourance Next, or Michelin Pilot Road 4.
What is your suggestion? Thank you.
A shopper on Feb 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The PR4 Trail was ideal for last summer's 8000 mile ride to the MOA rally in ST Paul. The PR4s performed admirably on the pavement through severe thunder storms in KS,MO and OH. Through CO they proved well up the task in spirited riding in the mountains. Wear was very good. Returning home they had about 2 K miles left of wear. By far the longest wearing tire I have found on my BMW 2013 R1200 GS. Good grip, long wear, quiet, smooth are some of the descriptions that come to mind when describing these tires.

I wouldn't recommend these tires if you are trying anything beyond dry packed dirt as in forestry roads. If you plan to ride more than a little off road there are better tires for that.
These are advertised as "specifically designed for larger adventure bikes". I have a Tiger 800 XRX low, which I would describe as a mid-size bike. No off-roading for me, and minimal gravel. Is this a better tire than my OEM-supplied Metzler Tourance NEXTs?
Carol T on Sep 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have Michelin Pilot 4's on my Suzuki V-Strom 650 ABS. My first trip with the Pilots included California Highway 36, 140 miles of twisties, between Red Bluff, CA & Fortuna on the NorCal Coast. We rode brand new pavement in torrential rain. I was very cautious at the outset, but gradually up my pace to near normal dry speed... what a tire, absolutely stable, never so much as a wiggle. Great in the dry too.
watched your video on the Michelin p4. interested in the trails was curious, is the trail rear with Med compound center and soft sides the same ratio as the gt with 20 center and 40 sides? thanks
A shopper on Jan 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I don't know about the ratios, but I wore out the rear Trail( medium compound) in 6000 miles while the from has plenty of tread left. I replaced it with a GT and have 1000 miles on it so far with no noticeable wear. I see no benefit to a medium compound on a BMW GSW.
The OEM tire on my bike is a 140/80HR-17. Will a 150/70R-17 fit my bike? Any issues with running a tire this size instead of the OEM tire size?
A shopper on Sep 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I'm not really sure. I do know that the trail 4 I have on my bike is wearing great. Over 3500 miles and the center looks great and the sides barely worn . If you give Michelin a quick call I'm sure that could give you a better answer. But I love my tires on my Tex
hiya,, ive been running Anakee 3 on my KLR650 for the last years and they have been nothing short of superb. just out of curiosity,,, is there point/advantage to go to ''even more'' road oriented tyre ? I mostly ride road with very little paved/cobbled and trail roads but no pure wild offroading. or shall I stick with what I'm 100% happy?
A shopper on Apr 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I went from the OEM more "trail" type tires on my V-Strom to the Pilot Road 4 Trails. I immediately got much better canyon carving capability. I have used my Strom only on a couple of camp ground dirt roads so my decision to go with the Michelin's was to be able to get excellent wet and dry weather traction while using my bike as a light sport touring machine to carve around southern and central California. If this is your desire then I would try a new tire. If you have a good tire and have no plans to change your ride style, why bother?
I have pilot 4 trail on my 2010 GS. Are the tire pressures remain the same as the stock (Michelin Anakee) recommended in the owners manual?
Thanks
Alex S
A shopper on Sep 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I run recommended tire pressures, maybe up a little and I'm getting what I consider to be fairly long wear for such great handling tires. For two up or loaded for trip I am using 36-38 front - 40-42 rear (2012 GSA). I think you're good to stay in the BMW recommended range and if you adjust do a little at a time and see how it for you your and your type of riding.
