Michelin Pilot Road 4 GT Tires

The Michelin Pilot Road 4 tires represent the latest iteration and next generation of Pilot Road evolution. Designed to deliver maximum safety in most conditions especially on wet roads and in particular when braking, Michelin's goal is to cover all riders in all conditions. Touting both enhanced safety and extended tire life, the Pilot Road 4 tires are a tangible illustration of Michelin’s Total Performance strategy of constantly and simultaneously improving tire performance characteristics across the range. The Pilot Road 4 GT tires are for heavier, touring bikes and has a stiffer casing with a patented new technology for motorcycle tires that delivers the stability you need for heavier GT-class bikes while riding solo, two-up or with luggage, and the comfort you desire. The Pilot Road 4 GT tires are already the OEM choice for the new BMW R1200RT.

Superior wet-weather performance

  • Michelin Pilot Road 4 tires stop shorter in the wet vs. the leading competitive sport touring tires and Michelin Pilot Road 3

Longest tread life in its class

Dependable grip even in challenging conditions

  • 2 Compound Technology with all new silica-charged rubber compounds for excellent grip from 23°F to 113°F

Best set of street tires I've ever used
On February 15, 2014 I had a front and rear Michelin Pilot Road 4 GT installed. Today, 06 December 2014, I had them replaced. The front tire needed to be replaced while the back tire had 500 to 1000 miles left on it (estimated). I rode 17,346 miles on those tires. As recently as this week I took sweeper transition ramps from one highway to another at 80+ mph in the rain. I trust these tires because I entered into a hairpin curve with water running across it way too fast while ascending Pike's Peak. (Visibility was somewhat poor due to the rain, hail, and fog—the curve snuck up on me.) I expected to crash, but the tires stuck to the road like glue. Since my wife was on the back, this was a good thing.

Of the 17,346 miles traveled on those tires, over 2700 of them were two-up, and of those 2491 included full saddlebags and a full Corbin trunk (highly recommended, by the way). Most of the 17,346 miles were on highways, generally at higher speeds, putting the vast majority of the wear on the center of the tire—where I usually wear them out as a highway commuter. I have also tested them in the twisties (two up), enjoying their excellent cornering traction.

I have never had tires with such a great combination of traction and longevity. I don't think I have even exceeded 10,000 miles with any other tire (on bikes that weighed less). I highly recommend the Michelin Pilot Road 4 GT tires.

Inspires Confidence
PR4 - Buy it.

HONDA ST1300 '07. I went through a couple sets of Bridgestone Batlax variants and they were very squirrely when crossing the metal bridges found all over Florida causeways. When initiating slow, to mid speed corners, they also tended to "Fall" vs "Carve"

After upgrading to Michelin PR4's I was blown away with the new road feel. Steady as a Rock at any lean angle. 1800 miles in 4 days from Washington DC to Tampa, FL as a twisties torture test on Skyline Drive, Blue Ridge Parkway, Cherahola Skyway, Tail of the Dragon, then Super Slab all the way home. Mountain Top - Sleet, to Sea Level - Heat within 24 hours and I was SO Impressed. Bought a new BMWK1600GTL and will be strapping PR4's on it as soon as I can consume the Factory Metz Z8's. (which I've heard happens quickly)

Grip in the twisties. Smooth as silk on the freeway.
These are perfect for my large, sporty tourer. I ride an FJR1300. I've chased friends on sport bikes through the twisties around Northern California. The tires inspire confidence when flicking into turns and scraping pegs. Afterward, it's smooth sailing at any speed on the freeway. I've noticed low speed maneuvering is easier on these as well, which is important to me as I'm only 5'6" (female), making it easier to park, etc.. So far the tread looks really good. I'm not inclined to try any other brand after having these.

Best sport touring tires on the market
Simply put, these are the best sport touring tires on the market! I ride a BMW K1600GT and these tires have great grip, traction, and inspire great confidence. My previous two sets were PR3's and they lasted 10,000 miles front and back. Michelin claims these tires last even longer.

quiet, awesome in the wet, longevity....Application for a Kawasaki Concours 14 2012
I had the GT form of this tire as my second set of tires. It replaced the OE Battleaxe from Bridgestone at 7200 miles. I now have 19000 miles and expect to replace it before the summer. I drive in every type of weather as I commute to work 20 miles(40 round trip). Temperature ranges from 29 to 105F(Texas).
I have never had a surprise with this tire, breaking hard in rainy weather doesn't faze it. Never seen so far the ABS light come on.
I wear the lateral thread on weekends and very pleased with cornering.
I would say that for a 700 lbs bike, it is very well adapted.
I will definetely buy again

great rain tire
I put a set of these (12/70 front and 190/55 rear) on my FJR just before leaving for Alaska. 8900 miles later there is still tread left although the rear is a little flat-spotted and the front is nearing the end of its life. This tire worked extremely well in the rain and I felt I could go as fast on wet roads as I normally do on dry (I'm about a 7/10ths rider). We rode though miles of road construction, loose gravel, mud and even over dirt roads in the rain. These tires are very confidence inspiring and well worth the money. It's a shame I didn't get to use more of the sides of the tires but there weren't many twisty roads on this trip.

excellent tire
Haven't ridden in the wet yet or to the end of their tread life. I just switched from the pilot 3 gt on my bmw gt1200 which I got a little over 11k miles. The 3s were excellent very predictable handling. My mistake that I made with them was to keep the tire pressure @39 lbs instead of 42 psi which is the manufacturers recommendation. The front tire showed cupping due to the lower pressure. With the 4s I hope to get 12k miles on them and I'll pay attention to the pressure. Tires showed up in 2days great to deal with" the rev"

Incredibly Long Life, Good Performance Sport Touring Tire
I've used Pilot Road 3's on my sport touring bikes in the past, and the Pilot Road 4's are just as good with slightly longer life.

Wet traction is awesome, dry traction is good too. It's the perfect tire for a big sport tourer. On my K1300S, I get almost 10k miles out of a rear.

Awesome tires!
I put the new Pilot Road 4 on my '03 K1200 GT after spending last season on a very grippy sport bike tire. After 3000 miles so far I have been very pleased.
The Michelins are nearly as grippy, great in the wet, and are not yet showing signs of wear.
When I first put them on I felt like they were a bit squirrelly, mainly under braking. I think that was caused by the large cross sipes allowing the tread to squirm. That feeling went away, and I am really pleased with this tire. I would buy another set without hesitation.

Best Pilot Road so far
This is my first Pilot Road 4. I got the GT for use on my 600lb R1200RT. I'm a big fan of Michelin tires having previously used PR2s and 3s. As far as front tires go, this may be the best so far. For me, it's quieter than the 2, and wears better than the 3. I tend to be hard on the sides of my tires and in this respect, the 3 disappointed... Only have about 5,000 miles on this one so far, but it looks like I'll get in the neighborhood of 10k.
As far as wet traction... Someone who lives where it rains would have better info on that. I live in Southern California. I think it might have rained here 20 years or so ago, but my memory is a bit foggy...
