Even after 3000 miles, a MICHELIN Road 5 tyre stops as short as a brand new MICHELIN Pilot Road 4 tyre* thanks to the evolutionary MICHELIN XST Evo sipes.

Wouldn't consider anything else.

The tortoise - February 20, 2020

I have completed 8000 miles on a set with tread to spare. I've toured France, Spain and Morocco on them. They are superb. I am a nervous wet weather rider but starting to enjoy it now! They are fitted to a Z900.

transformed my f800 gt from passe commuter to fun riding

graham - February 14, 2020

My BMW f800 gt is 6 months old. I bought it new. It came with Metzler Roadtec. The ride was underwhelming but the fact is that the bike did what I needed and was totally fit for purpose. I wore out the Metzler after 10000 miles, (I actually got a puncture on the front and the rear was completely worn out). So I looked around for long lasting tyres, the Pilot 5 came up as the best choice from a few review sites. I cant comment yet on the longevity of the tyre but for sheer transformation of ride the Pilot 5 has made my bike into a fun bike. I have got loads more confidence of the grip and positive feeling in regards grip. The bike dips beautifully into corners and is superb under heavy breaking. I have never bothered with writing reviews but have used them a lot. These tyres are so impressive I felt I had to leave a review. AMAZING I have only done a thousand miles on these tyres so my longevity score of 5* is unfounded by me and is just based on opinion of other reviews.

Best tyres I have had on my bike

Drock - January 20, 2020

I have had the Pilot Road 5’s on my Honda CB500x for one year and 12 000 km, used only for a daily commute. So far I have been confident in traction under all conditions. The wear appears even despite the fact that 90% of my riding is on straight roads with very frequent stops and swift acceleration, at this point the tread depth appears to have plenty more kms until approaching the wear strips. Extremely happy with thee tyres,
