Michelin Pilot Power 3 Rear Tires

The Pilot Power 3 is the much-anticipated replacement for the Michelin Power Pure tire. The Michelin Pilot Power 3 is an all new high-performance, dual-compound sportbike tire designed for the street or the track.


  • New 2CT+ compound on rear tire enhances tread rigidity and cornering stability by extending the harder compound underneath the softer shoulder compound for added cornering stability – especially when accelerating out of turns
  • Casing profile optimized for excellent feedback and handling
  • All-new compounds for maximum wet grip: up to 4.5 seconds per lap faster on a wet track than Michelin Pilot Power 2CT tires
  • Semi slick tread design maximizes contact patch for excellent dry grip - more than 4 seconds faster on a dry track than Michelin Pilot Power 2CT tires
  • Excellent longevity - 20% more tread life versus Michelin Pilot Power 2CT tires

GREAT FOR ROAD & TRACK (Even in the rain!)
I have been running the pilot power 3 (front and rear) on my 2006 Yamaha R6 on the track and on the road. I have gone through a few pairs in the past couple years - especially due to the track time spent on them. However, the tread life is excellent. I can get through several track weekends on fresh ones. I even ran a full day at the track in the rain on them and the treads provided surprising grip in the wet conditions at their limit. Though, DO NOT mistake these for rain tires at the track. They aren't quite that grippy in the wet conditions, but are very good! Dry conditions make it evident at how soft and grippy the outter edge of these tires really are. Highly recommend. Hope this helps!

Amazing tire for the price you pay!
I have had 2 sets of these tires already. First set went to 8500 miles and second set went to 6500 miles. Why the difference? With the first set, I was getting comfortable with them and also doing alot of communting to work. On the second set I was hitting US 129 3 times a month, making sure i find the best roads around the house, and hitting the twisties every chance I got! Between set one and two, the gain in confidence I had in these tires was amazing. I ride a 2006 GSXR 600 and drag peg on The Dragon! Superb grip, heat up very quickly, and the turn in is quick and smooth! Please try these out if you are needing new tires!

My favorite tire
I ride a 2012 FZ8. I commute mostly, with the odd spirited joyride or 800+ mile round-trip trip. I ride rain or shine, all seasons, and I have gone through 3 tire sets so far. I don't drag any knees on the street (just pegs), don't do trackdays, and I don't abuse the speed limit too badly, most days. 70% highway, 5% city 25% backroad riding.
Bike came with a bridgestone sport touring tire, not sure which. I wore those to the cords in under 6,000 miles. Average tire. Wore out quickly, lost neutrality very quickly, squared off quickly, slippery when wet (heh).
Next tires were the S20. Better, but not right for my style of riding, half done and squared off slightly in 2000 miles. I didn't wear those out, just 2000 miles and a bolt ended my relationship with the rear, the front was thrown away after that.
Last set (and current set) were these, Pilot Power 3's. There may be a better tire, there may be a longer wearing tire, there may be a [insert trait here] tire, but I don't care, I love this tire.
LONGEVITY: I got over 12,300 miles from my last set before the front and rear were down to the wear bars, not slicks, not cords, just wear bars. AWESOME. Probably could have pushed another thousand or more until slicks if I had to. They wear evenly too, at least for me and my bike and riding style. Front and rear were wearing evenly, not like my other tires were I could have gone through 2 rear tires for every 1 front. The dramatic "new round tire" feeling was not as great when I swapped these out for new sets of PP3's, probably because they didn't wear badly and square off as much as the other tires i've had.
GRIP: I love the grip from first day to last. Rain or shine. Very confident tire, never pushed it crazy hard, but also never lost grip except for the odd sand or gravel patch where it got a little squirmy. I also ride 1 mile of dirt/gravel to my house where the road ends every day, and even with crazy sport bike on dirt speeds I feel pretty confident. When leaned over very stable, even in wet. When practicing wheelies very stable, when being a hooligan on the freeway very stable, I love this tire.
COST: I don't even care. But they are cheap.

Best tires I have ever purchased!!!
I recently purchased these tires for my 2002 Honda cbr954rr and let me tell you. They were worth every dime. The grip of the tires were awesome even in inclement weather. Now I bought these tires for longevity and they took me over 10,000 miles and I was simply amazed. The only tire for me.

Mostly used on the street and some track
I am a pretty aggressive rider on the weekends and commute daily to work. Around 50 miles a day, these tires are great, very sticky, very predictable. Been very very happy with them.

Great tire for the way I ride.
Love this tire.
My bike had a set of Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa from the factory and I never really liked them. They felt slick the whole time and never gave me any confidence. When I got a puncture in the carcass of my rear tire I took the recommendation of my local shop and put a set of these Power 3's on my Street Triple. Once "scrubbed" in I was immediately more comfortable and confident in all conditions. The tires heat up quickly and feel sticky once hot. The grip is so good I even did a track day on these tires! I have about 3500 miles on the tires (including that track day) and the tread is in great shape still. I imagine these tires will last through next summer, no problem.

tl;dr: Great sport tire. Would buy again.

Perfect progression from Pilot Power 2ct
I've been riding on the Pilot Power 2ct's for several years, naturally when it came time to replace i moved onto the Pilot Power 3.

Tire has been great so far, immense amount of grip all the way to the shoulders, actually feels like it has a little better profile than the older ones. Loves to turn, and the wet weather traction has been amazing also. I was caught off guard by a storm and the tire held the road perfectly, way better than my old 2ct's would do in the rain.

Anyone looking for some great tires look no further, I've had Pirelli's, Conti's, and Bridgestone's and none have had the life and grip of the pilot powers. The added lean angle has always been appreciated.

great sport bike tire
This is a great sport bike tire. It is my second one. Last time I replaced both front and back but this time only needed to replace the rear. I have had other michelins before this including pilot power and pilot power 2ct. I got a little more than 3,000 miles on my last rear with hard street riding. Not as much as the 2cts ( more sport touring) I have had but a lot stickier and worth the trade off for a true sport bike.

Best tire I've ridden yet
I bought one of these to replace the squared-off Shinko on my Speed Triple 955i. I live in Seattle, so a good bit of my riding involves hills and wet streets. I've been thoroughly impressed with the grip and performance I get out of this tire. The back feels significantly more planted now, especially in the corners. I'm pretty sold on this as a regular tire, and I'll most likely buy another one to replace it.

A+++, great tire, would buy again.

So far so good
Getting close to 700 miles and I like them so far. I ride street commuting to work and spirited rides on the weekend but they feel planted going into turns. Haven't gotten caught in the rain so can't comment on that yet. Will update the review when I've put more miles on them about the tread life but so far so good.

I have been running this model tires since they came out. I have been able to push them to their limits in the turns and they haven't let me down yet. I get about 5-8k miles per rear tire just depends on how hard and what type of riding I do during that time. I have also gotten as low as 200 miles out of one tire before.....burn out got it good.

I've never like Michelin tires because they push in corners when riding hard. I tried these PP3's for spring riding and found them to handle very well. They drop in nice and don't get that greasy sliding issue when pushed hard.
Tim H on Mar 18, 2017
A friend of mine had these tires on his 2008 GSX-R 750. He went from a Pilot Power 2CT and upgraded to a Pilot Power 3. He was able to corner so much better the grip was improved dramatically. The tire warmed up much faster and lasted most of the riding season.

Keith C on Aug 24, 2017
The Power Pure's claim to fame was their lightness. Are the Power 3s lighter, heavier, or the same weight as the Power Pures?
A shopper on Jan 28, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The light technology in the Power Pure was derived from racing tech and Michelin has decided to retain that for dedicated racing tires rather than for street applications. The Power 3 that replaces the Pure does not have the light tire technology and will be a heavier tire, but has a newly refined dual-compound construction that still provides softer shoulders for cornering, but increases tire stability.
What is the estimated longevity of the PP3 in miles?
A shopper on Apr 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Of course mileage depends on your driving style mostly but since this tire uses a soft rubber compound you can expect 10,000 miles tops.
I have Pilot Powers on my 04 GSXR 750. The rear would need replacement pretty soon but front is pretty good. I am interested in PP3. Can I just change the rear or both front and back have to be changed? I ride almost all the time on street but this year might go to the track once. Thanks.
A shopper on May 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I just changed both front and rear even though the front was still decent (I kept the front just as spare). I'd change both simply to keep wear pattern and wear rate the same, especially if going to the track. Also would be good to keep the same generation tire and not mix and match. If I can remember correctly the ones you have, have different tread to the PP3. Plus it helps to check tire pressure every now and then, because low tire pressure can cause increased wear and low gas mileage.
What is the estimated longevity of the PP3 in miles?
Edgarc711 on Apr 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It depends on how you ride. It is a soft tire which is great BUT that means much more wear. If you need a 'commuter' tire, it may not be the best option. It wears differently on the sides than the middle. One set usually lasts me 1.5-2 track weekends (3-4 days) in Intermediate. I also can get a 4-day trip to Arkansas from Saint Louis on twisty roads. I would say 1000-2500 miles depending on your style.
Whats the difference between the 73w and 75w?
derrick c on Apr 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: They are a code for absolute weight limits. 73w is about 800 lbs limit where 75w is about 850 lbs
I have about 2800 miles with P3's on my CBR1000rr. My question: Is my air pressure why i'm seeing some cupping at 38lbs
and seems to be heading towards being flat in the middle. its not too bad but I do ride the whole tire and is this just fronm too much commuting time? Should they be kept with lower or higher pressure. Thanks
Bama on Jul 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have these tires and they have performed great. Getting flat in the center is from commuting. These are soft sticky tires, and the trade off is mileage. I have a minor lip forming at the edge of the tread. Even that suggests something about my bike. If you're talking about more excessive cupping, then you should maybe look at you suspension. If you've never adjusted the sag to suit your weight, that could be part of the issue. It can also be caused by improper dampening settings on the shock.
Hi, I'm trying to make a decision about which tire to buy. I mostly commute in the city but accelerate hard when available, and twisty mountain roads once every month. Not much rainy days here. I make about 500miles every month.
Alternatives are:
This PP3,
Pilot Road 4,
Pirelli MT60 RS Corsa
Avon Distanzia SM
I know the last 2 alternatives are very soft and low milage but they look fantastic!
All of them are about 460$ in my country... So what do you recommend?
Arrigan H on Oct 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Good street tire, i used them at the track and are pretty good, the super sports with the 3 compounds will handle the twisties better.
I have a 2002 Honda Intercepter. I'm looking for a street tire with excellent great and good wear and ride characteristics. Which Michelin tire best fits my needs?
A shopper on Jun 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Michelin is a perfect balance between durability and performance for me. I do ride on city streets everyday and I corner quite bit. The pilot is not only sticky but also super predictable.
what tire is best for my 2008 Honda cbr , I ride pretty hard and want the gripiest tire possible?
A shopper on Mar 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Depends on what you consider riding hard. It's a good tire over all and the Sipes will help in the wet. I used it for the track, because the supersports were out of stock, it didn't have the total grip i needed for track riding ( and I did crash) and changed back to the supersports once they were in. I will keep these tires for the street tho. In general when its very hot out they tend to get a bit "slippery" when pushed ( thru corners) so again it depends on what kind of Hard riding your planning on.
s there a really big difference between the pilot 3 and the q3 from Dunlop?
miles average?
Moises M on Mar 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure about about the Q3's but I ran the Q2's and after 4500 miles on my ZX 10 the rear was shot. I've got about 3000 miles on the PP3's and I haven't seen any noticeable wear yet.
