Michelin Pilot Street Radial Rear Tires

The Michelin Pilot Street Radial brings the radial revolution to small and medium-size bikes!

Radial architecture that enables improved overall response and handling as well as unrivaled performance over the long term, compared with a same-size cross-ply tire. A 100% silica rubber compound that delivers the best wet grip in its category, for a safe, sporty ride. The Pilot Street Radial tires are derived directly from Michelin's radial Sport Touring ranges and features tread borrowed from the Michelin Pilot Road 2, giving the motorcycle an attractive, sporty appearance.

The Pilot Street Radial features a slightly sharper profile to ensure excellent driving precision under normal riding conditions and a steeper shoulder for steering accuracy when camber angle increases.

Features:

  • Optimized groove tread pattern
  • Tread pattern designed to minimize uneven wear and maximize mileage while enhancing wet weather performance
  • Variable groove width along the tread pattern
  • High silica content for increased wet grip without sacrificing tire life
  • Precision handling with high level of rider feedback
  • Superior longevity compared to a primary bias-ply competitor

The clear choice for cbr250r/ninja300
Finally the big companies are taking notice of the smaller bikes on the market and producing quality aftermarket parts for us.

This is the first tire available that is designed specifically for the cbr250r/ninja300 and it doesn't disappoint.

Even just a few minutes after putting them on I could tell the difference.
They are stickier than the stock IRC tires found on both bikes.
Before when aggressively downshifting into 2nd gear I would hear the rear wheel chirp and loose traction. Not anymore. The pilot street radial doesn't loose traction even when aggressively downshifting into a corner.

Also the braking performance has increased substantially. There is more feel and I can apply the brakes with quite a bit more pressure before the wheel starts to break loose.

The ride is smoother and bumps are less noticeable thanks to the radial design.

Also the wet performance is important to me as an all season commuter, and this tire is the best there is. Michelin released a press release where they tested the stopping distance in wet and dry and in the wet the stopping distance was only 3" longer than in the dry!

All thats left to see is how long they last. As long as I get decent mileage I would 100% recommend these to owners of small displacement sport bikes as the go to tire for any type of riding.

This is the one...
There are a few bikes now with this tire size....I ride supermoto and this was a major step up from stock. Keep in mind the old tire was aging and starting to crack so obviously it would be night and day....but major improvements with bumps and cracks in the road. Compliments the suspension nicely and keeps its shape even with 2 people aboard! Ive only been caught in the rain briefly (is it a sickness that I cant wait for rain so I can test the waters?) and the road was not a total washout but was damp and it was a chilly morning and these really grab a hold... the only time these will break free is when you are practicing the drift in the front yard! I waited for months for a review that would sort of pertain to what I wanted in this tire and I have to say I'm VERY satisfied. I even hit a few cinders at night on a bend that would have sent me sailing if I hadn't replaced and got these and for that I love them. I absolutely HAD to get a matching front which I have to say must compliment the back nicely as the stock was again worn in the centers and was misshapen for a brand new perfect rear. I would replace both as confidence is now at an all time high.

I would swear by this tire and after seeing how smooth it is no joke have actually changed to Michelin for my car and SUV as well.....Remember you get what you pay for...Michelin delivers! I paired the 140/70 rear with the front 110/70 ....and you'll notice the treads oppose each other. The only thing I can 100% guarantee is a smooth ride and a tire that doesn't break loose when you need it most. These will show you how fun it is to drag a knee! Ride on! hope to see these on more local small CC bikes!

great in the wet, even better in the dry
I bought this for my CBR250R and I am very glad I did, it provides great grip in the wet, even when the tire is not all that warm(compared to IRC Road Winners).

Modernize your small twin.
My wife's 2006 Ninja EX500R came with bias tires, and we had upgraded to one of the top of that range, the Pilot Activ. But Michelin doesn't make that tire in her sizes anymore, and their official recommendation is the radial Pilot Street. It is almost unheard of for a radial to be recommend for an bike that came with bias tires, but Michelin must have had the current and nearly nearly identical Ninja 250/300 in mind when they made this tire. And it's exactly the right tire for the bike. The first thing you notice is the smoother ride. Then the precise steering and stable handling. No rain experience yet, and there are only 2000 miles on the set, but we expect the best from PR2 experience. Buy the set, and don't mix bias and radial tires.

Great tire for wet roads
I bought these tires (front and back) after my old ones wore out and I was losing grip on the wet roads of Seattle. After the initial slickness from the top layer of tire, I have found these to be perfect tires for my riding style of commuting and day trips. They grip wet roads well, I feel safe leaning into turns, and they have yet to slip on any substance or road. I'm overall very satisfied with them.

Confidence inspiring!
I've put about 2k miles on a set of these tires so far (front & rear), and I have to say that they are excellent! Awesome grip in the twisties of the Washington mountains, and very confidence inspiring!

Even at or near maximum lean in wet or dry conditions the tires still feel planted and beg for more!

At 2k miles they haven't noticeably worn down at all, although I have not tried to measure with a wear gauge. Couldn't say as to whether or not they develop flat spots easily, as much of my riding is spirited and filled with turns :). Although I don't think they are a dual compound tire, I could be wrong.

Solid tire for a sumo
These tires have great grip, on and off road, and are comfortable for highway riding. Handling is fantastic, and they look good.

Great tire for a great price!
Got this tire off a recommendation of a co-worker as replacement for the stock tire on my CBR 250R. After only a few minutes of riding it seemed to ride better and the bike being more responsive. Maybe it was the placebo effect, but even after 300+ miles on it it still feels great and has gotten me through wet roads with no problems. I can't speak for taking it to the track or anything, but for everyday riding on the streets it's perfect. This will be my go-to tire for my CBR from now on.

Best long lasting tires
Couldn't be more happy. The grip is much improved over the stock tires. The tread hasn't started wearing after 2,500 miles but i expect the life to be just as long or more than the stock tires. This is a great tire for commuting and having fun. Its the best of both worlds.

How many miles can I expect out of these? I'm on a Ninja 300. I commute everyday 60+miles, so I eat up mileage very quickly. 99% of my riding is done on highways, and I'm not a knee-dragger, so I'm looking for a good tire for that purpose that is more inspiring than the stock IRCs.

Are these alright for my purposes, and how many miles should I expect?
Anthony C on Feb 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Can't speak for mileage, I have had them on my cbr250r for a year with about 4000km with little wear. They are much stickier than the irc's that came with the bike and are great when it is cold and wet which is often in Vancouver, Canada. If you are doing lots of highway and are not concerned about putting an over sized tire consider the pilot road 3 or 4, it will change how you bike will turn, or so I have heard but a dual compound tie will last longer if you are riding mostly highway, but you will be altering the dynamics of the bike by changing tie size, otherwise I have been happy as Larry with the pilot street. Get some advice on other forums as sellers will have to protect themselves from liability for a noon OEM tire size...
Hi!

I was deciding between the Michelin Pilot Street Radials and the Pirelli Sport Demon Sport Touring tires to replace the rear tire on my girlfriend's Ninja 250r, and I wanted to ask you guys for your opinion. She rides year round since we are in Southern California. She doesn't ride too aggressively, but we do go on the occasional group ride through the Palomar Mountains. Which tire would you guys recommend for a good balance between grip and durability?

Many Thanks,

Eddie
Eddie S on Mar 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I think the Michelin Pilot Street Radials are very grippy but never tried the Sport Demons. I considered them but some people reported 4k miles for the tires, which I would go through in 3 months.

I ride in northern CA year round and take curves fairly aggressively.

Unless she is dragging pegs the Street Radials should be fine.
