2008 GSX-R750

Coming Soon: Michelin Pilot Road 4

Went to Stubbs 59 today for my GSXR recall and they had info for the new PR4. Supposed to last 20% longer than the PR3.

Too lazy to scan the brochure, and the only thing I can find online is this:

Should be coming out in January. Will most likely replace my rear with this one

Supposed to be 20% more wear and better rain weather traction than the 3.
Considering that the Pilot Road 3 gets awesome wear and great wet weather performance that's going to make the 4 an awesome tire choice for commuters, and supposedly with only a 10% increase in cost over the Pilot Road 3's.
What's interesting is that Michelin is NOT discontinuing the Pilot Road 3's, both tires will still be available.

Fwiw I have a 120/180 Pilot Road 4 set in stock right now.
Call or PM for the BEST PRICES in Houston for PARTS and ACCESSORIES.

I loved PR2's. I rode them fairly hard on the back roads and never ever had a problem. I got 11k miles out of my set on my 919.

I even ran them at the track on the VFR (see avatar) but they were getting squirmy at TWS (Texas World Speedway) this summer. I think I cooked them.

I have never had PR3's on my bike...i have stuck with the pr2's because they worked for my riding style..

I would love to try out the PR4 and see how it compares to the other PR's..

Hopefully Michelin will drop the price on PR3 like they did with PR2.

PR3 is the best all-around sport touring tire I've ridden so far, bar none. it is also the most expensive and least discounted, bar none.

I just spooned on a set of Bridgestone's latest sport touring tire, the T30. We'll see how well these stack up against the Michelins. I'm rooting for the underdog, cus they typically sell for quite a bit less than the reigning champ.

All about riders experience, control, and modulation. A commuter that only has a bike for transportation, will learn to deal with weather, cause they have to. There is no alternative to use another vehicle.

Not only possible, but very do-able.

power 3's have longer tread life than my 2ct's. that being said, I can easily go 7-8k on my 2ct's.
