Tire Rating: 5 Stars 5 Stars
Tires: MICHELIN® Scorcher®
Motorcycle: Harley-Davidson® FLHTK
Annual Mileage: 10,000+
Location: Milwaukee, Wisconsin

I always used Dunlaps tires, and decided to try out MICHELIN Scorchers, and I was impressed and convinced that I was getting more tire for the money spent. Not only do I have 16000 miles on the tires, the tread wear appears as if I can go another 10000 miles before replacement. I was at my local HD dealership who was interested in selling me a set set of tires, ended up asking me what did I do to keep the tires lasting so long. I maintain proper tire pressure on every vehicle I operate but never have I gotten this kind of miles out of a motorcycle tire. I found the tire to be very quiet, and handles very well during turns and fast braking.

What I am most impressed with is the handling in the rain. I have been caught in many rain falls from very light rain that makes the pavement more slippery to downpours that obscured my vision. Not once did these tire make me feel insecure. They really gripped the road. I have to friends who thought I was crazy for running 70mph during a downpour of rain but when I told them how the Michelin Scorcher felt as if they become glued to the road, stop very well, and allowed the same amount of torque to the rear end, they both purchased the same tires and are still thanking me. I will continue to pack miles on these tires and after the season is over, if the treads are still looking this good Daytona Beach here I come. These tires allowed me to increase my lean angle when going into curves, I completed The Tail of the Dragon in 20 on a full dresser, I impressed myself thanks to having solid tires. When I replace these tire, I will be getting the same make and model tires.

    Tires: MICHELIN® Anakee® III
    Motorcycle: Suzuki DL650
    Annual Mileage: 10,000+
    Location: Nampa, Idaho

    As someone that rides over 20,000 miles a year and changes his own tires, it’s important that they last (no one likes changing tires). The Anakee 3’s have proven to give ridiculous mileage, usually over 20,000 even for the rear. They grip well in nearly all conditions. Bottom line they’re fantastic tires.

    Tires: MICHELIN® Road 5
    Motorcycle: KTM 690 Duke
    Annual Mileage: 5,000-10,000
    Location: McConnelsville, Ohio

    Got the Michelin Road 5 rear tire, already have the Pilot Road 4 on the front still. And all I’ve got say is I’ve got about 1,000 miles on it this year and I am loving every bit. Cold, hot, raining weather it performs very well, to the fact of I no longer have any chicken strips on either side of the tire. Again great tire would recommend to anyone. I am only giving 4 stars as of now, since I dont know the mileage I can squeeze out of them yet.

    Tires: MICHELIN® StarCross 5
    Motorcycle: Honda CRF 250
    Annual Mileage: <1,000
    Location: Clermont, Florida

    Love this StarCross 5 superior traction and durability, on the different tracks that I go to from hard pack to sand. If my buddies ask me what tire they should run I tell em StarCross 5! I love to ride and race on a local level so I need a tire that can multi-task. If you’re gonna bring the ruckus you better be on a set of StarCross 5’s.

    Tires: MICHELIN® Pilot® Road 4
    Motorcycle: 2009 Kawasaki Zx10r
    Annual Mileage: 10,000+
    Location: Sanford Florida

    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!
