Tire Rating: 5 Stars 5 Stars
Tires: MICHELIN® Pilot® Road 4
Motorcycle: BMW K1600GT
Annual Mileage: 5,000 – 10,000
Location: Elkhart, Indiana

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.

Annual Mileage: 5,000 – 10,000
Location: Artesia, New Mexico

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.

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.

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.
