Michelin Pilot Road 4 Trail 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

  • 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

Yes! What an excellent tire! Everything they said it is! I like them better than the '3s' and they were excellent too! February 17, 2015
Love these tires on my BMW R1200GSA Living in the NW I find these tires to be great in the rainy months . Good wear and grip. February 16, 2015
Best tires ever I commute 115miles a day. Rain or shine. Hauling butt and splitting lanes on a GS. Get these tire. Last about 14K with proper inflation. I run 37/41. Mitch sportbiker929 January 12, 2015
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!! December 29, 2014
Great street tires They stick like glue on the street. A lot less road noise then the A3's. I've only had them for about 2K miles, so I can't say much for the long term. December 22, 2014
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. December 9, 2014
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. November 6, 2014
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. October 20, 2014

Wesley N: Michelin PR4 trail reviews sound really good. The tires sound like they were engineered for my bike, which is a 2011 Suzuki V-Strom 650. Jan 26, 2014
A shopper asked: 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. May 12, 2014

Tedd G: As your screaming down NC 276 in a hairpin turn and you enter a little too hot and have to hold you line do you want the front and rear to have different tires? Also ask who do you want to have long life? You? or your tires? Put the same on the back and front.

These are amazing tires for road handling. Stabilize the bike in high cross winds. I have the Trails and just put 5000 miles on them and they still are very round. My Tourance next were cupped front and flat rear in 2500 miles.

I thought it was a law that GSA have to run 100% off road knobbiest ?????

Tom W: 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.

David s: Not sure the difference between the r and zr. But I have 1500 miles on my tires on my Triumph Explorer and I have no visible wear on them. They ride great and I'm getting a little better mileage than the stock tires that came with the bike. All in all I really like them May 13, 2014

Charles M: I am running 4 trail in front and 4road for rear. 4 trail rear is softer than road 4 rear. They have performed very well. I ride a GS and am a 80 road and 20% dirt rider. Handling much better than Metz. Ride safe and far. Cjm May 13, 2014

James M: 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.

Douglas L: I have Pilot Road 4 trail tires installed on my 2014 GS
I only do street riding on the GS and ride agressively.
The Pilot road 4 tires are excellent. They warm quickly, they stick when heeled over. The rear tire can be made to step out accelerating out of a curve but it is predictable and easy to control. Both tires are proving to be long lasting > 8K miles so far
Due to the characteristics of Telelever there is not much feedback from the front tire on any tire I have tried.
Thier performance in the wet is also great

James F: I have about 6000 miles on my PR4s. The grip is excellent on the street and in the rain. They handle nearly as well as a dedicated sport tire in corners too.

They are less inspiring in the dirt and gravel. If you're doing more than the occasional dirt road, I'd favor the Tourances. They lasted about 9k miles on my Tiger, so they wear well and they didn't make me pucker on dirt like the PR4s do.

Brian W: I've got quite a lot of experience on the PR3 and the GS (>60K miles). I was a little disappointed with the wear life of the PR4 though. With my normal riding I only got 10K out of the rear where I normally get 14~15K on a PR3. Of course YMWV.

I will say the PR4's instantly feel better than the PR3's and in the rain they were much more confidence inspiring than the Anakee 3's I tried last year.

Raymond H: I have these on my 2010 GSA and absolutely love them, for a street tire. I ride year round in western Washington and they are great in the rain, just realize the are not a "off-road tire", the name trail is only a designator for bikes that weigh as much as ours do. Hope this helps. Feb 23, 2015

john s: I like them over the stock Bridgestones on my V strom. The center is a harder compound and for commuting the tires have worn very evenly. Grip seems excellent even in cold weather. The Bridgestones had a flat center portion after only 4,000 miles. Feb 23, 2015

Chris E: For street riding the GS the Michelin PR 4 will trounce all the other tires in the list. Those tires turn your GS into a respectable twisty mount. Comfortable and noise free. Just get em you won't regret it. Feb 23, 2015

A shopper asked: 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 Jan 27, 2015

Kevin S: 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. Jan 27, 2015

David s: 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 Sep 2, 2014
