    Michelin Pilot Road 4 Rear Tire

    Aimed directly at the sport touring rider, the Michelin Pilot Road 4 Rear Tire looks to build upon the legacy of the Pilot Road 3 and create something that can be ridden hard and through every kind of weather condition. A dual compound tire, Michelin has worked hard to improve grip in the wet and drastically cut down on stopping distance. And if that isn’t enough, Michelin claims a 20% increase in mileage compared to the Pilot Road 3.
    • Superior wet-weather performance: Stops 17% shorter than the leading sport-touring tire competitors on wet pavement and 24% shorter on slippery wet surfaces**
    • Last longer: Up to 20% longer tread life than Michelin Pilot Road 3 tires****
    • Dependable grip, even in challenging conditions: 2 Compound Technology with all-new silica-charged rubber compounds for excellent grip from 23 degrees F to 113 degrees F. New XST+ siping and enhanced tread patterns for optimum grip at all lean angles
    **Note: Based on third-party commissioned tests conducted in 2013 by Dekra Test Center in Ladoux, France for braking on wet and wet slippery surfaces; tires included the Michelin Pilot Road 4, Dunlop Sportmax Roadsmart II, Metzeler Roadtec Z8 Interact, Pirelli Angel GT and Bridgestone Battlax Sport Touring T30 in dimensions 120/70ZR/17 and 180/55ZR/17. Results may vary depending on motorcycle type and operating conditions.

    ****Note: Based on 2013 internal wear and wet tests at the Ladoux Technology Center. Results may vary depending on motorcycle type and operating conditions.

    Great Tire

    The 4 has what feels to me a little different profile than the 2. It seems a little more round and narrow than my old 2. The 4's center section seems to be a harder rubber compound than the 2 also. It slides a little on aggressive downshifts, but this also means it should last longer too.

    Michelin PR4

    By far the best tire I have used on my BMW 1200RT. Got 12k out of it, with some tread left: no more than 8k on any other tire I have used. Exceptional performance in every category. Easy to mount too. Superb!

    Michelin PR4 GT.

    I just replaced my OEM Bridgestone tires with PR4's. Like any new tires they feel much better and it seems like the ride became much smoother. It also made the cornering of my R1200RT feel easier. Motorcycle Superstore service was quick and painless.

    Pilot Road 4

    Great tire! Replaced the Pilot Road 3 that didn't seem to last as long as it should but since it was on a Multstrada 1200S that I ride hard especially double up on the Dragon I understand why it didn't last. I put over 1500 miles on it in just a couple days on a trip to Kansas City in the rain and sun and it worked perfectly in both conditions. I don't know about the tread life yet.

    Great tires! Can't judge the tread life yet. Been on my Multistrada for two weeks and have just under 2000 miles. Rides great and is a huge improvement over the stock Pirelli. Have seen NO difference whether riding on dry road or during pouring rain. Always stable and responsive.

    Great Tire

    I've ridden Tourance's and Pilot 3's and this feels like the stickiest tire I've leaned over on. I have a big, heavy BMW R1150GS and I did an aggressive canyon carving ride with friends on faster bikes...but the performance of these tires gave me the confidence to tip it in and lean it over. The only thing that prevented me from more lean angle was my crash bars or pegs scraping first. :)

    Michelin Pilot Road 4

    Shortly after mounting new RP 4's on my BMW I did a 4700 mile trip that included dry road, some gravel, heavy tar snakes, heavy rain and 40 miles of snow and the tires performed extremely well. They are wearing consistently and have lots of wear left. Michelin has found a huge fan with this tire. I'll reorder this tire again.

    Superb Tires!

    I'm sold! Been two weeks now and over 250 miles. Smooth as silk. Big improvement over Battlax 023's that are stock on FJR 1300. I used Dynabeads, and they're a great improvement over weights. Dynabeads provide dynamic balancing at all speeds. These tires are perfect in all weather conditions. I'll buy a new pair someday. I bet it won't be in 5,600 miles like I did the Bridgestone Battlax 023's. They were hard as rock. One doesn't know what one doesn't know. I now know and see the light.

    Good Tires

    I ride in pretty much any condition as long as there isn't ice on the ground. I never care if there's rain or how cold it is. I recently replaced my old tires with a pair PR4 series. I can tell you one thing, the traction is amazing. Normally in colder weathers you tend to lose some, but apparently these babies don't care about the temperature much.

    Beat tire I've ever driven

    Had pilot 3 and got 10,000 miles out of it. Now with the pilot 4 am expecting to get even more mileage. Am driving Yamaha FjR1300 best tire I have ever run by far. I won't be running anything but this tire on both my motorcycles. My other bike is a triumph t-100 bonneville. Happy riding.

    Replaced the PR3 series on my Concours with the PR4 series front and rear and they seem to stick well and the ride is great! Will buy again.

    A fantastic tire!

    I upgraded to the PR4's from PR2's. I could not be happier with the performance of these tires. The week I had them installed, Jacksonville had every type of weather you could think of pass through, so I was able to experience hot, cold, and wet within a week. Not once did this tire falter. During regular weather, these tires can perform up there with some of the best sport tires. Wet weather performance is even better than what I experienced with PR2's and traffic paint lines are MUCH less noticeable with the new rubber compound. As always, the pilot roads are extremely stable at speed and cornering is very confidence inspiring. I was able to get 16,000 miles out of my PR2's on my SV650, so I'm sure the mileage for these will not disappoint. An extremely good tire for the money that will outlast the best sport tire 2, 3, maybe 4 times over!
