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.

Reviews & Questions
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.
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)
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
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.
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.
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...
Knoxville Sherriff's Dept. uses them on their Beemers
(sometimes my wife rides with me as well)
Roughly 10k on my current set and plenty of life left in them. A little uneven wear on the front but my front brake is causing that.
The GT is intended for bikes heavier than the R1200RT (570lb without luggage), like the K1600GTL (770lb).
Prevailing wisdom says a solo RT rider would be OK with the regular PR4s.
I opted for GTs. I have an RT, with Pelican topcase and BMW side cases. Fully loaded with passenger that's probably 950lb.
If you, your girlfriend, and your saddlebags add up to 500lb or more, get the GTs. Otherwise, you're probably fine with the regular PR4s.
You could go standard PR4 on the front but you would potentially go through front tires faster than you already do. The GT has a slightly harder compound in the center and I have GTs front and rear on my R1150RT. I came off PR3s and I can't say that the 4s are a groundbreaking improvement over the 3s but I suspect they will last longer and I do like them. That being said, I have had no concerns about the harder compound and finished several rides in the rain with excellent performance. If your concern is that they front tire will lack grip because of the harder compound I would have no fear unless you are truly planning on riding to your and the bikes utmost potential. What I like most is that they don't have a release compound from the molding process like tires from several years ago. They are reasonably sticky right out of the box and are ready for action after a few miles and a few sharp corners.
That being said I have 2 FJR1300 riding buddies who both mounted PR4GTs and are very happy with them.
I'm looking at getting a set of the PR 4's for my 2005 BMW R1150 GSA. I ride almost exclusively on the road, without a pillion so my question is do I get the PR4 Trails or the GT ones?
If you are riding only on pavement i would suggest to buy a GT. because trail wersion of pr4 are softer and they will wear quicker on pavement.
I took my PR3 before on gravel roads and you just have to becareful and you will be fine.
I ride a BMW R 1200RT bike weight 571 lb without top box. the PR4 GT is the recommended tire for my bike. The GT is designed for heavier bikes there is no mention directled to rider passenger or loaded weight. I would recommend that you contact Michelin directly. I have asked questions of the Michelin representative at BMW rallies in the past and they were more than happy to field such questions.
I will say the PR4's for me out performed the PR3's especially in the rain.
Hope this helps.
