Michelin Pilot Activ Rear Tire

The Michelin 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.

Features:

  • 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

Use it for the front trike tire
This is our third tire that we're using as the front tire, running it backwards on our Goldwing trike. After using other brands, we won't use any other as this tire is THE best. We have always gotten well over 20,000 miles on each tire.

Wonderful Tire
This tire performs very well in the dry and wet. I ride in the rain and have had no problem with traction. I have put about 5,000 miles on it so far and there is very little wear. I would purchase this tire again.

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.

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.

Good choice for a front tire
While Michelin states that this is a rear tire, it turns out to be the exact size I need for my front tire. And since it's only been on the bike for a few weeks and I can't comment on tread life or wet traction, I can say that the grip is very responsive and it comes out of the curves very nicely. The sipes look as though they can channel water away quickly. All in all, a great tire.

Michelin Pilot Activ Rear Tire - Great Tire
Put this tire on the front of a 2010 Gold Wing trike (reversed the tread), Have put 3,500 miles so far, really made the trike handle a lot better. Ran in some rain just after putting it on and the trike held the road very well, stuck like glue.

Would highly recommend this tire for a trike.

Excellent Tire
I am running this tire reversed on the front of a a GW1800
Roadsmith Trike ... This tire is absolutely awesome in this capacity and would recommend all trike owners to go this way for your front tire.

Great...so far
Usually get Pirelli Sport Daemons, but I go thru several a season. I wanted something with a bit more range. The jury's still out on longevity since I only have 600 miles on it, but it rides extremely smooth and it seems plenty sticky.

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)

The gear geek rep I spoke with yesterday was, I cannot exaggerate, INCREDIBLY helpful in guiding me through finding the right tire with more particular needs than normal. If you can look back up who that was, give him mad props.
Jeremy W on Nov 8, 2016
Great mileage and traction. I've used this tire since it first came out, very happy with it. This is my fifth.

For all of the tires on this site the reviews do not really show any objective kinds of feedback. So I turned to recommendations from FB page of K75/K100 owners group.

Right size for an R90S and since we don't run them so fast anymore, and only occasionally, no need for any higher speed rated tire.

Main reason is the price. Second, is that this tire lasted me over 12K miles. Great tire.

Are these tires ok for tubeless rims, ie 1995 BMW R100R?
A shopper on Apr 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have the tires on a R 100RT 1992. I like the tires very much, it will be interesting to see
how many miles they will go. Hope this helps.
