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

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

Fantastic all-around service Always great to do business with Revzilla. My initial impression with the tires is GREAT. Have not ridden them enough to rate tire wear, nor have I ridden in the rain. Sure made my bike handle like a dream. Thanks Revzilla November 3, 2015
Not good tread life I put a set of these on my Triumph Tiger Explorer and I am going to need to change out the rear tire again. It is a softer compound than the standard PR4s. (When I bought the tire the trail was the only one I could get.) I am not even going to get the life that the stock tires got. I got 14K out of the stock tires which are known for being soft. I am at 11K right now and just starting to hit the wear bars. Maybe they would work better on a lighter bike with less horse power. Most all of my riding is pavement but I don't ride aggressive, I am a commuter and like to take road trips. September 4, 2015
R1200GS Pilot 4 upgrade from Pilot 3 The new model is very similar to the prior Pilot 3. The main difference appears to be the trend pattern and in my opinion a bit better looking for what that matters. After the initial break-in period (150 miles), which by the way can be squirrelly, especially in the rain, the tires are every bit as good as the Pilot 3. Maybe a slight bit gripper. I would recommend them for the R1200GS especially in rainy climates and geared up. Prior Conti's were terrible in the rain. The review on trend life is premature and based on the Pilot 3s which gave me 9,000 miles. August 31, 2015
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 August 1, 2015
I don't understand the high ratings these get So last summer after reading all of the rave reviews I decided to stick a new pair of PR4 Trails on my Explorer 1200 for a trip from Colorado to Alaska then back by way of Seattle. This was a 2-up trip with bags, mostly on road (some construction zones with rock chips and gravel), with 7300 miles of pavement. These tires were shot after only 3500 miles, and I mean shot. They Trail version is not the same material as the standard PR4s. They are much softer. Their grip was so-so, and I even lost traction completely on a oily wet pavement spot up in Anchorage on one occasion. I put K60 on the bike in Seattle and was much happier with those across the board (except they are slightly noisier). Even the K60s were pretty poor on hard pack dirt, so beware of those too. July 3, 2015
Great performance, but ... Obviously these are great road tires for big bikes like my GSA. Unfortunately I had a couple of issues which I would like to point out. First the front tire is a real bear when it comes to setting the bead. Even a seasoned pro (who did initial installation) had a very hard time. Almost impossible at home by yourself. Secondly after about 6,000 miles the front started to cup and as a result became a little noisy at lower speeds. Rear tread was almost gone at 6,800 miles so I swapped them out this time for Pirelli Scopion Trail II. These look to be what I want and I had no trouble mounting them myself. Hope they work out better. June 23, 2015
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. June 8, 2015
Perfect for what they are designed for I wanted my F800 GS to handle as best as possible, for all weather road conditions, and 5% offroad. 4th gen Trail tire did just that. I cannot get the rear to break free on dry, even wet roads. While riding fully loaded 2 up on wet, packed dirt, the rear would not break free. What do I buy for the front tire? They don't make a 21" so I need to find the best compared. " Now that I have this on the rear, what front tire do I get for my F800 GS? They don't make a 21" Pilot 4. I need something that can handle road in the wet. My options seem limited. May 26, 2015

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Mark L: 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. Nov 3, 2015
Tom W: 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.

james b: I'm replacing the one I just put on 5000 miles ago because of a puncture. GREAT TIRE! Aug 9, 2015
Jeff M: 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. Jun 21, 2015
Jeff F: Moved to the PNW, needed a tire that did better in the wet. Great tire so far and dual compound too. Jun 12, 2015

William L: Great tires Jan 1, 2015
Mathew W: 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. Nov 17, 2014
Mitchell V: Got 13000 out of my R3 Trails on a GS that gets abused 130 miles daily, these must be even better! Oct 16, 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

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

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 ?????

What is your suggestion? Thank you.

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
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
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

Tom W: 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. Sep 19, 2015
