I wore out 2 sets of original spec Dunlops on my FJ in very short order. Based on recommendations from my online friends, I bought a set of Pilot Road 4’s. I did notice that despite being the same size, the rear PR 4 was a bit narrower than the Dunlop. Despite this, I am VERY happy with my purchase. Very little break in time, excellent grip wet or dry, and very forgiving. They give a little warning when getting to the limit. If the mileage ends up being as good as others say, I will be a very happy customer! This is my first set of Michelin MC tires. Likely wont be the last. I gave them a 4 star review, may upgrade that to a five depending on just how long they last.

About a year ago I bought my first street bike. A 2009 Kawasaki Zx10r that had a new set of tires thanks to the new owner. They turned out to be Pilot Road 4s but I didn’t have a clue what that was. The longevity and durability of these tires, especially in wet weather, is unparralled. Living in Florida, we get a lot of heavy rain in the summertime. I got caught one day I a rainstorm and couldn’t see 6ft in front of me. Suddenly the car in front of me slammed on their brakes and immediately I did the same. To my surprise, i did not slide or lose traction one bit. At over 12 thousand long miles the Road 4 is now coming to its end. I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase anything by the brand Michelin, and I didn’t even pay for them haha. However, I already ordered my next tire. Went with something a little more sporty. The Michelin Power RS and I can’t wait! Trust your tires! Trust Michelin!

Got 12,000 miles on my first pair (Pilot Road 4 GTs) and I just put on my second pair. These are better that the original brand I had on the bike, better than the Pilot Road 3s I had on the bike previously, and better than two other brands I had on my previous bike.

“Better” is not just a reflection of wear. The wet tracking gives me confidence. They are smooth and quiet. And the look is great. I don’t think there’s a better tire out there for my bike.

I’ve run the PR3 then the PR4 on all my sport touring bikes. Formerly an St3 and currently my Multistrada. I’m averaging 8700 miles rear and between 11,000 and 12,000 front, most of my mileage is 2 up, loaded down. The rain performance is phenomenal on these and I have enough edge grip to occasionally nick the pegs as well. Realistically on this type of bike I can’t safely use more tire on the street. With the wear rates and all around performance this is my go to tire until it’s replaced with a PR5. Thanks Michelin for continuing the tradition of excellence in your company.

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.
