Good and not so good

kpax - June 3, 2021

Good for PR4 is life and rain control. Bad is the fact that they begin to hum after 5 - 6000 miles. Cupping follows. Riding in the twisties is fair-not great. I typically ran about 10,000 mi. on the Michelins. I've purchased somewhere around 15 pairs of Michelin tires: PR 2, 3, 4 between 2008 and 2016 for BMW R1200 RTs Then I won a set of Dunlop Roadsmart 2. Much better overall. Roadsmart 3; even better. Now running a Roadsmart 4 rear and Roadsmart 3 on front due to offerings for BMW GS. Much better road feel from the Dunlops, especially in the twisties. Rain seems about equal. Life goes to Dunlop.

Hi Paxton, thank you for your review. Many factors can impact regular wear of a front tire starting with the proper air pressure, riding style (even braking, braking into corners, etc.), surface of the road, and condition of the components on your bike just to name a few. Once cupping begins, it is nearly impossible to correct so it is important to monitor and adjust subjective factors accordingly.

I have been riding Michelins since the pilot 2ct came out and although I know there are other good tyres out there I love the feel of The Michelin road 4. I do have to push them a little, but that is what I like about them, a Great wet grip and I never wear out the middle of the tyre. I get about 4K out of the rear and 6K from the front. A great tyre.
