Michelin Pilot Road 3 Rear Tires

Building on the tremendous reputation Michelin has built over the years, the Michelin Pilot Road 3 Tire is the successor to the award winning Pilot Road 2.  With the Michelin Pilot Road 3 Motorcycle Tire you are really getting 2 tires in 1, by integrating a soft rubber compound on the tread shoulders with a wear-resistant compound down the middle, Michelin gives you the best of both worlds.  The Pilot Road 3 is a dual compound sport-touring radial tire.

Revolutionary X-Sipes technology maximizes wet traction

  • Michelin’s newest technology delivers all-weather performance without compromising tread life or handling
  • Patented innovation resulting from years of research and development 
  • Sipes increase the tread's drainage capacity
  • Sipes generate pressure at the edges of the sipe blade, which helps to break through water film

Two compound technology combines tread life and cornering grip

  • 2CT incorporated into all tire sizes, front and rear
  • Wider soft-compound shoulders on the front tire, compared to its predecessor

High performance and environmentally sound

  • 100% non-aromatic-oil rubber compound

Note: Sizes denoted by "B" are designed specifically for loaded sport touring bikes, or for riding two-up.

Michelin Pilot Road 3 Rear Tires 4.9 5 344 344
Better than Dunlop d-222 that was stock on my FJ-09 I was lucky enough to get into motorcycles as the 2015 Yamaha fz-07 became avalible in September 2014. It came with the pilot 3 and I cut my teeth with this (bike) tire. As 2015 March came around I bought the 2015 Yamaha FJ-09, it HAD a dunlop d 222 on the rear. I replaced it with the pilot 3 after I got a flat on the dunlop with 12,500 km. I have 12,700 km on the Fz-07 and it performed better in all areas, wear, wet & dry, hot & cold, it has not even a flat spot on it wear as the dunlop did. More importantly I had even more confidence on the 07...that is untill I put on the p-3 on my FJ-09..awesome rubber. November 24, 2015
A better tire for the price is impossible to find! So stock tires that came with my bike were horrible... Replaced with this bad boy and I will never ever go elsewhere. Dry grip is awesome and wet is even more impressive. I was apprehensive the first time riding in rain with them but before I knew it I was growing in confidence and almost riding like it was dry outside!! Treadlife I can't comment on too much I've already put 1500 miles on them and they look brand new still. I highly recommend this tire and considering the number of reviews on this tire already you can't go wrong with this baby! November 3, 2015
No real need to break in unless going straight to wet riding. Awesome grip on dry pavement. Slips a bit on turns in wet weather... No real need to break in unless going straight to wet riding. Awesome grip on dry pavement. Slips a bit on turns in wet weather...I try to avoid wet riding anyhow but it's comes up on you sometimes... October 19, 2015
Wonderful ties for playing in the curves around the house. Grip is good. Helps you feel planted. When the back steps out from the power of the bike they help you control it and bring the bike back into submission. October 12, 2015
Great wet or dry I ran the PR3 for a 4k mile trip from DC to Newfoundland. I got rained on every day, and rode in temps ranging from 34-100F. No issues at all from these tires, even in cold rain in the mountains of the Cabot Trail in Nova Scotia. Plenty of slab and back roads along the way, and they wore well, even with an improperly aligned rear wheel on my '01 V-Max. With all those miles, the rear was beginning to show a little flattening in the middle, but my bike weighs 570, and I weigh 230...Add luggage and an extra fuel cell, and the tires had their work cut out for them. They were great. There's not much else to say. September 20, 2015
No complaints After two sets of PR2s, I decided to try the PR3s for a little more peace of mind in the rain on my BMW R1100RS. Have about 4000 miles on them, including a 3000 mile 7 day trip circumnavigating Lake Superior. Miles are mostly straight, with more interstate than i'd like to admit. Can only feel a tiny bit of flat spot. Can't see it yet. Went through several rain storms with no issues. Completely confident in the twisties with them, all the way to the edges. September 9, 2015
wow Great tire !!!! Have run thru a handful of these tires both front and rears and they are a Great , What else can you say. October 5, 2015
9,000 and counting Put this tire on my 2009 Ninja 650 last year at the tail of the dragon. I was able to drag foot beg with no problem! This bike is mostly for commuting to work and it's been doing that with ease. I have over 9,000 miles on it and I am just about to hit the wear marks on the tire. Can't beat that! July 14, 2015

If you're looking for a great sport or sport touring tire & plan on commuting and/or riding regularly, these are the perfect tires. Aug 13, 2014

Jacob D: I need new tires. May 15, 2014

Susana R: Because it is the best tire for my bike. May 12, 2014
Daniel D: These tires could save your life!! AMAZING in the rain NEVER had a slip. I have ridden in very unsafe conditions where you cant see anymore then 15feet infront of you on the higheway in the pouring rain. These suckers hold up in hurricane like weather conditions.

Andre M: Best tire for longevity
Apr 25, 2014
E A: I already have Pilot Road 3's on my BMW to begin with. My rear was nearing the end of it's life so I ordered another. That being said, the front still looks like it is brand new. I didn't get the miles out of the rear that I was hoping for, but I do run alot of Texas rock roads and that tends to eat up tires on anything. Apr 19, 2014
Paul C: I Purchased this tire last season based on customer reviews and the Revzilla video. The videos are fantastic and much appreciated. I am purchasing the same tire again because I loved the first one. Apr 19, 2014
Philip S: Couldn't find a PR2 in the size I needed. Apr 11, 2014
Shawn G: It matches the front one, duh!!! Apr 6, 2014
A R: I have used Metzeler Z6, Dunlop Road Smart, Michelin PR3, and Pirelli Angel ST on my Sport Touring Motorcycle...the Pirelli Angel ST was by far the most consistent throughout its 6K Miles and always stable as the Rock of Gibraltar when hanging off in swervery. I'll never go back to the Michelin PR3 because they were always squirming around when I needed them to be solid! Mar 27, 2014
Charlie M: Great Tires Mar 26, 2014
Mark C: Love the tire Mar 18, 2014
Lorena G: Same as previous Michelin review. Mar 18, 2014
Benjamin B: good reviews Mar 13, 2014
Paul A: I chose these tires for longer tread life and better traction. Mar 8, 2014

Dylan Y: Great tire lasted for a long time! Mar 6, 2014
Jacob M: Previous tire I had on the bike and it was awesome. Long life and handled well in the corners. Feb 22, 2014
Michael L: I chose this to replace the reinforced OE tire on my 2010 BMW R1200RT. Feb 11, 2014
Michael B: It was paired up with the front tire. Jan 25, 2014
robert r: They round and supposed o work good wet and dry. So much rain Jan 25, 2014
Joe P: I ran this tire on my 2012 BMW K1600GT. I got about 7,500 miles out of this rear tire. It is very good on dry pavement and in the rain. If the PR4 doesn't work out, I'll definitely be reverting back to this tire. Jan 21, 2014
Johnny G: mileage and performance Jan 18, 2014
Thomas V: I Picked These tires Because They We're The Best Rain Tires I Could Find At An Affordable Price. I Have Ridden Over 5,000 Miles On them Including Severe Raining Conditions At Freeway Speed And Never Lost Grip Unless I Full Throttled It. These Tires Also Have Great Longevity And Grip With The Dual Compound. I Not Only Recommend This Product But I Will Be Purchasing A New Set When Mine Wear Out. I Rate This Product 5 Out Of 5.

Ken S: Great reviews. Recommended by friend with tires. Jan 16, 2014
Marvin H: Recommended best for my commute and my spirited riding. "They" were spot on! Best decision I made! Jan 10, 2014
Keith E: Just Put on my 5th one, they go about 10,000 good miles. They only get a nail slow leak when very near the end of their life (thin). I think its the best rear tire for me and my 85 BMW K100RS with wide rear rim. Dec 18, 2013
John B: These are THE best road tires ever - superb feel and reasonable wear rate on an MTR1200 Dec 9, 2013
Lawrence Z: These are great tires, especially in the wet. Super grip and I like to run sets of the same tiers on my bike. Dec 3, 2013
CLINT T: I live in the pacific northwest and needed a good wet weather tire. These tires work great. I've ridden in absolute downpours and never felt concerned about the tire's ability to hold the road. On dry pavement they are sticky enough that they can be pushed through faster corners with the same confidence of almost any tire I've used. As a commuter I like them a lot and unless Michelin comes out with something better before the next time I need tires I'll buy another pair. Cheap insurance. Nov 14, 2013
George W: I was looking for the best all weather tire set for my 2012 Multistrada Touring. I looked at the new Angel GT's, but in the end I went with what appears to have the best wearing life, and all weather tractions for the Sport Touring bike. Nov 12, 2013
RENEE S: AWESOME!! Nov 8, 2013
Rodrigo A: Very good tire and price. Nov 4, 2013
Johnnie B: Very good product. Nov 3, 2013

Mark P: Great tire. I got 11K miles out of the last set. Nov 1, 2013
A s: This will be my third set of PR3's and I will never ride on anything else. Sticky in the dry, sticky in the wet, and I get between10,000 and 11,000 miles out of a pair (BMW R1200RT). I ride a good amount of slab but also spend many weekends in the NC Mountains seeking out the twisty roads. Oct 31, 2013
Jose D: Mileage and wet performance plus dual compound Oct 29, 2013
D E: I have enjoyed the great performance of this tire and the mileage is outstanding.I will continue using this tire until the market offers something better. Great sport touring tire! Oct 29, 2013
Jesse L: Good tire life, soft edges for more aggressive riding, better wet surface traction.. Oct 26, 2013
brett b: Best tire on the market for my riding needs Oct 24, 2013
Kenneth D: Have used this tire before, got great mileage, and sticks like glue in corners..price is right from Revzilla Oct 21, 2013
Richard M: price performance and tire life Oct 18, 2013
marc v: Moved to Tampa, FL...mostly straight roads and it rains a lot...nuff said... Oct 17, 2013
Wade T: I have the Piliot 2's on my ST with 7500 mi on it and not showing any significant wear. Handl great. I am replacing the Perelli's on my Multistrada 1200 with the Piliot 3's Oct 16, 2013
Duane B: This will be my 3rd set of PR3's
Lots of riding means you never know what the road conditions will be and these are a great wet and dry tire. Handling is terrific all around, even after over 10,000 miles.
Oct 14, 2013
Jeremy A: got a flat and the reviews on this were great Oct 12, 2013
Brian R: Have used Michelin Pilot Sport tires in the past with great results. A friend has these on his BMW sport/tourer and loves them. You can't beat the other user reviews on these either! Oct 5, 2013
jr m: needed new rubber....awesome ire btw Oct 2, 2013
Jacob W. L: The Z8 only lasted 4030 miles before the steel was showing. Hoping to get more mileage out of this dual compound. The K-1600 GT is a tire eating machine! Oct 1, 2013
Richard K: Good prices and reveiw Sep 30, 2013
Jeff B: I want my bride to be safe as well as have fun riding with me. Michelin is the best, hands down. Sep 30, 2013
Huey W: I've put about 5500 hard miles on this tire and it has held up very well. Great traction in the corners at high speeds. The tires feel stable at high speeds too. Sep 28, 2013
Paul H: 2 reasons, on our last trip we were caught in 600 miles of rain and wind of a 2,000 mile ride, my riding buddy was running the Pilot Road 3, 1 â?? great handling and stability (dual compound), 2 â?? wear, after that trip and the 3,000 on the sneakers very little signs of wear and only now starting to show a flat spot in the middle of the rear. He rides a â??05 SV 1000 and I plan on putting these on my â??07 1250 Bandit. Sep 23, 2013

Phillip R: Used before Sep 13, 2013
Manouel T: This is my second set. I love the ride with these tires plus they have lasted over 8000 miles on my Honda Blackbird. I will say that I am not a weekend ride warrior and use my bike quite often for my daily commute, plus I am also a aggressive rider at times and these tires have always done an outstanding job for me. Sep 13, 2013

bluespecv03: I have gotten 10k miles out of my past two Pilot Road tires. I live in FL, so it's mostly straight roads, with a yearly trip to Deal's Gap, which is 500 miles each way of straights before we hit the twisty stuff. Excellent life and grip both wet and dry. The center area is harder for better mileage but the sides are softer for better cornering grip. Definitely recommend the Pilot Road 3. May 24, 2013

jf954: With the Pilot Power 3 I think you will get around 10,000 miles out of them, if you are not racing or doing track days. I would pick the Pilot Power 3 for your bike, I have them on my CBR and they are awesome. The Pilot Roads are more for touring bikes and would be more likely to lose grip under hard riding.

Nicolas S: The Pilot 3 is a perfect sport touring tire. I use them on my 06 Multistrada, and I think they are wonderful and recommend them wholeheartedly for every day riding, especially in the rain. Even when the riding gets a little more enthusiastic, they still deliver a secure ride. The R1 makes a lot more power than the multi, so your experience may vary. I've never used the Dunlop Q3 tires, so cannot give you an opinion about them.

Good luck

Margaret P: I had a set of Pilot Road 3 on my VFR and they have excellent grip in dry and wet conditions. I don't believe they compare with the Q3. If you want better grip but sacrifice tire mileage the Pilot Power 3 is closer in comparison with the Dunlop Q3.

Brandon T: I don't normally ride that fast but these were on my bike during a track day and they handled extremely well. The deeper the corner, the faster you go, and the more you lean the bike, you can really feel the tires grip and hold a line.

Every other set of tires I've tried have flat spotted really bad after a thousand miles. I have about 4 thousand on these and they still look new.

Only thing I did not like was how long they took to scrub in. Every turn or corner I took it felt like the bike was going to just fall over and low side. Once scrubbed in however, they've been excellent

A shopper asked: For a lighter bike like a gsxr 750, which is by no means a big touring bike. Would you recommend the Pilot Road 3 tires or the Pilot road 4 tires? I ride hard, and I like to have grip. Which one is grippier? Jul 22, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
naran r: Both will provide plenty of grip. The 4 is better if you'll be riding in the wet. However, with a GSXR 750 the only reason I would consider a Pilot Road at all is for milage considerations. There are plenty of better choices for a sport bike, including from Michelin, if grip is your priority since you "ride hard." Check out the Pilot Power if you are a diehard Michelin rider, but by all means take a look at the Dunlop Q3 also. Jul 22, 2014

I am caught between sport and sport touring, but I don't go to the track and ride only 2k miles per year (90% is mostly all weather commuting and the remaining 10% is occasional weekend twisty trips).

John T: I have a 2012 Kawasaki Z1000 that came with Dunlop OEM tires that were supposed to be for street riding. I hated them. I had no confidence that the would hold the road in less than perfect conditions. Whenever it rained or I had to lean the bike excessively an overwhelming feeling of fear took over me. Since I only got about 6k miles out of these I had to replace them after about 9 months. I purchesed the Pilot Road 3 tires and was amazed at the difference. The traction in the dry is confidence inspiring and in the wet I have yet to notice them slip. Obviously I watch my speed and lean angles in the wet which helps but doing the same with the Dunlops didn't keep them from occasionally slipping. The other factor that bothered me about the Dunlop was the fact that they developed a flat area quickly. I commute 125 miles round trip a day with a lot of straight line riding. I've put over 10k miles on the Pilot Road 3s and they only show the slightest bit of flatening. Feb 1, 2014

Fred N: Tires in good condition are the key - summer or winter - I ride year around (I'm on target to ride 300 days this year here in Missouri) - the "grippy" tires do not get hard - realize after a few minutes even at 10f your tires warm up to their operating temperatures - I have been very pleased with the PR3's and will actually be ordering a new set shortly for my BMW R1200RT. Finally - "grippy" tires or not - they won't help up with ice or snow - you just have to keep the bike vertical and hope for the best. Nov 15, 2013

Jim c: I own a CBR929rr. I mounted my pilot 3 rear tire in April and used it this summer…. hard. I rode on the track. I rode on the steet easy, and getting busy. I live in Fort Collins Co. So I ocationaly will hit a dirt road for a bit. I have the road 3 rear tire and the Road 2 front tire(front went two seasons(10k). As far as I can tell the rear might have another full two seasons left and the front will need changing this winter. I will go with the pilot three on the front for two reasons. The tread will match (O.C.D.) More so, I am completely impressed with the performance of the read tire and front for that matter. Never once did my tires slip or waver in a corner that could not be explained by debris on the road. (Just slips, no crashes)
I would recommend this tire to the agressive rider. For the more tame… you can sertainly save monie and get a lesser tire. > You will most likely not push your self nor your bike to the point that this tires' abilities kick in. But… if you get on your bike and want to have the confidence and self assurance that you are on a performance proven tire; this is the tire for you. Well… it has won my loyalty.

Streven M: The B prefix tires have a slightly different compound that is for heavier bikes; like your Concours. It will wear better and last longer than the non-B tires. It is slightly less grippy, but unless you take it to the track you're not going to notice... and if your going to the track you should really be buying Pilot Powers not Pilot Roads.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
DariusCD: The Angel ST has the highest weight rating already. The B Spec is a little extra peace of mind for those who want it just because, or a heavier bike, or riding two up. It just has a bit more support on the side wall which translates to more uniform cornering and also should you have a fast blow out or loss of pressure your tire won't ride so flat. Dec 26, 2011
