Ranger’s Story

Tire Rating: 5 Stars 5 Stars
Tires: MICHELIN® Pilot® Road 4
Motorcycle: 2010 Yamaha FJR 1300
Annual Mileage: 5,000 – 10,000
Location: Scottsdale, AZ

On my 4th set of Pilot Road. First 2 were Road 3 and the last ones Road 4 GT which I got 9200 miles and still good tread, not to the wear bars, but front gets squared and affects cornering. This started at around 6500 miles on the PR3’s but with the GT I did not notice until 8000 miles. The FJR is known to be hard on front tires. Headed out on a 2000 mile ride and did not want to mess looking for a dealer on the road so had them changed today. $172 rear $152 front + $96 labor. Could have probably got another 1-2,000 miles based on tread, but no fun in the corners. Great tires.

    Tires: MICHELIN® Pilot® Activ
    Motorcycle: 1997 Yamaha XJ600 Seca II
    Annual Mileage: 1,000 – 3,000
    Location: Birmingham, AL

    I recently purchased Michelin Pilot Activ tires for my Yamaha Seca II. Today I ended up in flash flood conditions on the interstate. I have never been more impressed with the stability and responsiveness of a tire in my life, and it is my belief I was able to arrive home safely and without incident as a direct result of the clearly superior engineering that goes into the development of your products. I would like to thank your company and all those involved in the production of such fine tires. You have earned a lifetime customer today.

    19k miles on front tire not unusual with Michelin tires. Smooth ride and handling the best one could want.

    Tires: MICHELIN® Pilot® Road 4
    Motorcycle: 2015 BMW R1200GS Adventure
    Annual Mileage: 10,000+
    Location: Tampa, FL

    I have had these Pilot Road 4 Trail tires on my GS for the past 6k miles. I ride my bike daily to work, weekend travels, and long distance trips. Recently I took a trip up north to West Virginia, Ohio, Pennslyvania, Virginia, North Carolina, and Georgia. The Road 4 Trails handled well for the trip in the rain and typical hot day road conditions. I would recommend this tire for any GS rider or adventure touring rider. I normally would run a Anakee III tire which gets 12k for being able to off-road it as well which is what I would be jumping back to on my GSA as it was stock tires.
