Michelin Road 5 Tires

Building upon the success of the Pilot Road 4, the 5th generation of the popular Road series drops the "Pilot" prefix and takes on more of an all-purpose approach to an all weather sport and sport touring tire. In wet conditions, we change the way we ride. Wisdom dictates less aggressive lean angles when traction is questionable due to slick roads. In dry conditions, well, we're out having fun. The design of the Michelin Road 5 Tires takes these complimentary riding styles into account. The section of the tire that sees the most use during day in, day out, even spirited riding is outfitted with deep, water-evacuating sipes. The edges of the tire, those that are only called into action during aggressive riding on dry pavement, are uninterrupted expanses of a softer tread compound.

The biggest selling point of the Road 5 is wet-weather longevity. Michelin essentially reinvented the wheel when they engineered the water evacuation siping of the Road 5 tires. These channels actually flare outward towards the center of the tire as opposed to grooves getting narrower as they get deeper. Water needs to be displaced as a tire rolls over it. As a typical tire wears, the negative space between the tread gets progressively smaller and smaller. When the P5 wears, it maintains a more consistent volume of negative space where water can disperse. This translates into more confident wet-weather cornering and emergency braking throughout the life of the tire.  

Features:

  • Patented Michelin XST Evo siping design
  • Patented ACT+ casing technology
  • 2CT dual compound front tire composition
  • 2CT+ dual compound rear tire composition

Just put a set on my S1000R, and so far I likey!
I was tired of buying a set of B-stone S21's every 3000 miles and opted for the new Road 5 for improved mileage(money savings). I've put about 200 miles on them now, and they are as good as expected. They're definitely not the cheapest tire out there, but that is exactly why I bought them. I have never really disliked a Michelin tire on my bike, and with them I know that I am getting the latest and greatest in engineering and performance. I myself am a weekend canyon carver, but also run errands and rip around town on my bike just for fun.

PROS

- Mileage: Can't say as of yet, but great mileage is expected.

- Low speed handling is fantastic. I actually like them better than the S21's I was running previously. They are pretty neutral, yet fall into corners around town(at lower around town speeds) very nicely. They feel very stable.

- On the highway, again, they're absolutely fantastic. They do not walk/grab/chase pavement changes, cracks, etc... they hold a line and feel very stable. The ride is smooth and they definitely do a good job of providing a gentler ride over a hypersport tire.

- Spirited riding & Cornering: Okay, so I've had them up in the mountains/canyons here in SoCal twice now. They definitely work, provide plenty of grip, but don't handle as good as I was hoping for; but they do handle a bit better as expected for a sport-touring tire(defintely better than the Dunlop RSII which I have on another bike+ the Dunlop has a much rounder profile and is slow to turn in). The Road 5 is a neutral feeling tire as expected, but a little slower to turn-in than expected. I was thinking that the steeper profile of this tire would allow it to turn-in and flick side-to-side a little faster and/or similar to a hypersport tire.
However, once over on the edge of the tire they hold a line very nicely, and due to the steeper/more aggressive profile over the PR4 and RSIII, they feel like they have a larger contact patch( more grip). They are more than happy to make mid-corner line corrections/changes if needed.
Now take it, I do ride pretty aggressively at times and do lean bikes 90% over on the edge of the tire(no chicken strips here), but I don't ride at 100% dragging knee so to speak. I am very curious, but have yet to really push them and see how hot I can enter a corner and apex with them.

- Overall grip: I feel like they really grab the pavement well.I feel pretty confident over painted lines/crosswalks and tar snakes on dry road.
I did have the rear slide slightly and traction control kick-in(S1000R+Dynamic mode), in an uphill, very tight right-hand hair-pin that that had some dirt and small bits of gravel/rock on the inside of the corner. Thank god the front didn't slide...overall it was pretty minor though/not a pucker incident. I suppose you could say thats expected when hitting some dirt/gravel mid-corner though.
I do not ride in the rain/wet often. I have however ridden ACH here in SoCal on a set of PR4's in pouring rain. I was intrigued and wanted to see what they could handle at the time. I of course did not push them as hard as I would in the dry(I just don't have the balls) but did have a good time and was pleasantly surprised at the level of confidence they inspired. At the end of the day I rode home down the 405 just as I would have in the dry conditions, but in pouring rain and they felt great. I would imagine the Road 5 is as good, if not better than the PR4 as Michelin claims in the wet.

*Please note: I was out late last night and have only downed 1 cup of tea at this time. Please take this review for what it is ha ha ha.

Tar Snakes Bite Hard with this Tire!
I've got about 3500 US Miles on my Road 5's and over this long weekend I have come to the conclusion that they aren't for me.

They do most things very well. After 3500 Miles there is no change in tire shape from wear. They look like they are wearing well. Dry Grip has been great, and wet seems fine, but haven't seen much wet weather.

My Problem? Tar Snakes - aka: Asphalt Crack Sealant Stripes.

Tar Snakes cause instant and total loss of traction until they slip off and regain traction once back in contact with the road. I had four pucker moments within about 8 miles on my last ride!

I thought I could live with it with all the other good points, but a actually pulled a muscle on the last instance, as I thought I was going down in a round-a-bout.

There are enough road conditions that can cause temporary loss of traction without Tar Snakes being added to the list.

Now I'm second guessing my chosen line around every corner. I'm going to end up hitting a patch of gravel or sand because I have to plot my line around constant Tar Snakes.

This is the sixth set of tires on my 2015 Ninja 1000. I switched to the Road 5's after five sets of Angle GT's. The Angle GT's are almost completely immune to Tar Snakes, I didn't even know they could cause problems before I tried the Road 5's. I'm actually amazed that the different compounds used can cause such an extreme difference!

Now if you happen to live in an area (or continent) without Tar Snakes then I would be recommending them highly.

For me, I'll be going back to the Angel GT's

3000 miles on the Road 5's
Everyone here seems to have just bought, but hadn't updated their reviews yet. I figured since I've ridden these tires a decent amount and tried pushing them, I'd review. I am writing this review not because I bought from Revzilla but because I love these tires. I have a 2017 Multistrada 1200s with some mods for more oomph.

Tread Life: 3000 miles in is really starting to wear the edges. The compound on the edge has that beach tide look already. I've been riding on some hot days, so this might be a tire I don't square out and have to replace earlier then expected. The compound in the middle looks brand new still. Tire still feels absolutely impeccable.

Edge grip: This tire is deceivingly awesome. As many allude to, turn in is OK, very acceptable for a street bike. What they haven't said is the godlike grip you can get once you clear onto the solid patch. It's honestly incredible the confidence it inspires. I'm taking turns much faster then I would have on PR4. It just wants to hold!

Wet grip: I rode 2x in rain (ty pnw). Once from Seattle to Portland and once from Vancouver to Whistler on Sea to Sky. Both loaded up. Highway speeds feel good: holds great grip on heavy braking as well as over larger puddles of water. Twisty roads are surprisingly confidence inspiring, I almost felt like I was having fun. When going over tar-snakes or thick paint in the rain on twisties, it shifts much much less it feels like then usual, meaning it picks up traction very fast after slight loss.

Dirt performance: why not? I did it, kinda sucks, but when not on gravel or mud and just on dry dirt, it performs slightly better then some. I've done about 50 miles of dirt and it did just fine

Overall, I love these tires. I only worry about tire life. I am seeing early signs of wear on the edge already. Maybe I'm paranoid. Will update once I run them out by end of summer. Amazing confidence.

Amazing tires (so far)
I picked up these tires for my 16 GSX-S1000F to replace the worn stock tires. Almost immediately, i knew i had made the right decision in purchasing the roads. I had to wait the recommended 50 mile break in period to really put the hammer down and see just what they could do and i am happy to say that they deliver. Initial turn in is not sluggish but wasnt exactly the fastest either. I think the dealership that installed the tires made adjustments to my settings, so this may not evem be due to the tires. Either way, turn in is solid, and the grip... what can i say about it? The dual compound and stiffer sidewall provide a confidant feeling even when at a steep lean angle. I can feel what the bike is doing and i look forward to seeing just how far i can push myself and the bike. I have yet to try them in the rain, so i cant comment how they handle there. Same applies for the miles, i cant comment yet because i have only a few hundred miles on them. But based on the few miles i have to date, they have met my expectations and i hope to add further comments about wet weather handling and milage as they happen. Great job Michelin.

Wow. I didnt know what I was missing!
I replaced the original Bridgestones on my BMW R12R, and its amazing how much grip these new tires have. Night and day difference, confidence inspiring. The tracking through corners is so much more precise... looking forward to trying them in the rain, but as far as dry grip goes, these are fantastic!!

Way better!
I had a set of Dunlop 616s on my GSXR 750. My rear was getting close to the wear bars and I decided to replace it with a Road 5. Now, I know the 616s have more of a dirt-capable tread, so this is not an apples to apples comparison. When installing the tire, I noticed the tread compound was much softer. I'm not sure if my previous tire had hardened with age or if the difference is by design. Ride-wise, the improvement is night and day. The bike immediately felt like it wanted to lean into turns faster and further with absolute confidence. My rear tire no longer skids no matter how hard I brake. Wet weather traction is phenomenal as well. The Pacific Northwest gets lots of rain and I've yet to feel the slightest slip in downpours, fresh rain after long dry periods, crosswalk paint, or hard shifts. I'm impressed. Ordering the front tire now.

Very happy with the purchase
Intermediate soft tire therefore great grip, handles water perfectly. Had some second thoughts before buying it as I ride CBR600RR, cause it's not the typical sports bike tire, but after two months with them on I am very satisfied. I don't do track days so it suits me perfectly on an occasional rainy day on the road.

Best wet weather tires
These are the best wet weather tires money can buy. They also happen to have a ridiculously long tread life. The only negative is the rear tire gets a little squirrely during turns in the dry.

Way worse life than the PR4
I thought I would like this tire better than the PR4 due to the more obviously soft side compound and fewer cuts in the tread. The tire behaves more like a sport bike tire now. It slips when the tire is cold but is pretty grippy when it's warm.

I track my wear with tires, and these gave me about 2/3rds the wear of the PR4 for similar riding conditions and fairly diligent pressure monitoring. The front is almost toast at 5k when I could easily get 9k from a PR4.

I ride a lot so will try them once more but I don't think they're worth the higher cost.

Upgrade from PR2s
Put a set on last week and rolled 3200 miles of varied western US choice roads. My PR2s had 12000 miles and were quite shitty feeling on the 850 mile ride to LA. I put a set of the PR5s on and hit the Pacific Coast Highway that reopened the week before. Right out of the garage the felt great and proved worthy all the way up to Washington and back to Colorado via Montana. Mounted on a fully loaded FJR they felt solid in the corners and are showing only minimal amounts of cupping. I expect that I will get 10K plus out of them.
