Michelin Pilot Activ Rear Tire

Pilot Activ tires set the standard for bias-ply replacement tires. No other tire at this price offers this level of performance and durability. Compared to earlier Michelin tires, Pilot Activ tires deliver an increase of 20% in tread life, giving Pilot®Activ tires an unbeatable price/performance ratio in this market segment.


  • 20% greater tread life than previous designs
  • Wide tread blocks equal more rubber to road contact
  • Longitudinal and lateral tread grooves for effective water evacuation
  • Significantly improved wet and dry grip compared to earlier MICHELIN® bias-ply tires
  • Wide range of sizes to fit popular bikes that use bias-ply tires
  • Optimum performance throughout the life of the tire with virtually no difference in wet grip between a new Pilot Activ and a worn Pilot Activ

Great choice for my '08 Bonneville. Great all around tire with neutral characteristics on the straights and nice turn in on the curves. Appear to be wearing minimally at 1500 miles - nubs are just going away. Don't ride this bike in the rain, so no real way to judge. November 11, 2014
Great tire choice for my '08 Bonneville These tires provide great handling and at 1500 miles the tire nubs are still there, so I anticipate getting some good miles out of them. They provide very neutral steering and the straights and very nice turn in when cornering. Overall, great choice. Can't rate the wet traction as this bikes is only for sunny days (I have other daily drivers). November 11, 2014
good tire So far so good on this tire, only got a couple hundred miles on it, but no complaints at the moment! September 15, 2014
Best wear and handling tire for my old bmw. This tire lives up to the manufacturer's claim. I switched from Dunlop tires. I like the handling better and haven't noticed much traction difference between wet and dry pavement. I even had to ride about ten miles on snowpacked roads and survived. The mileage is great the Dunlops lasted only about 9,000 miles on the rear wheel.. The two Michelins lasted the full 12,000 miles. August 25, 2014
So Far so Good I only have 300 miles on these tires. Installing was horrendous by myself. Super hard. It took two people for the rear tire for me. August 4, 2014
So Far So Good I only have around 300 miles on these tires. They feel good so far. If you are installing them yourself on a tubed rim. It is pretty hard though. August 4, 2014
Great tire Awesome tire at a amazing price,showed up fast no issues,fast shipping,a++ March 10, 2014
I will also purchase the front again! Remember people, this is a bias mount! Product was an experiment & test on 20 & a 30 year old BMW. I am really impressed…..esp. over "our usual favorite flavor" Metzler. (50% greater mileage, so far) December 16, 2013
