    When one of the best gets better, you'll ride with more confidence - rain or shine, hot or cold, city or highway. With its new XST Evo sipes, which widen as the tire wears, MICHELIN Road 5 tires offer effective water evacuation throughout the life of the tire. The new compounds are specially formulated to provide excellent grip on a wide range of road surfaces, including painted lines and pedestrian crossings, making it easier for you to ride with confidence in virtually all conditions.
  • A USED Road 5 tire with more than 3,000 miles of wear stops as short as a BRAND NEW Pilot Road 4 tire on a water soaked road thanks to the revolutionary patented MICHELIN XST Evo water drop sipes, which grow wider mile after mile.
    - Based on internal wet braking testing comparing new MICHELIN® Pilot® Road 4 tires and worn (3,502 miles) MICHELIN Road 5 tires in tire sizes 120/70 ZR 17 (front) and 180/55 ZR17 (rear) on a 2013 Suzuki® Bandit 1250S, conducted in 2016 in Ladoux, France. Actual results may vary.
  • Improved dry grip, stability and handling compared to MICHELIN Pilot Road 4 tires thanks to Michelin’s patented ACT+ casing technology and the 2CT+ dual compound technology.
    - Based on third party commissioned tests comparing MICHELIN® Road 5 tires with MICHELIN Pilot® Road 4 tires in tire sizes 120/70 ZR 17 (front) and 180/55 ZR17 (rear) using a 2017 Kawasaki® Z900 conducted by MTE Test Center in Stuttgart, Germany. Actual results may vary.

Yes please! Thank you!
Just YES! Roadtec 4 gt on rhoids. I have had many sport tour tires on my blackbird and ride hard. This is now my favorite tire of all time. Its not just the new tire syndrom. This tire has the soft rubber sidewall line in just the right place. Leaned over confidence is super high. Feel is excellent. Awaiting endurance but looking good. Wet is excellent. No paint stripe wiggle like I have only ever experienced in the Roadtec 4 gt. This tire. Yes. So far just, really, incredible. Then again, I write this after an idyllic rip up route 1 on the Cali coast..

Goes really well with the Road 5 Front Tire (and my review of that tire is really of both F and R).

Did Michelin indicate if the 5 is expected to last longer than the 4s? It's amazing how they continue to improve wet weather performance and I'm hoping the changes "to all the above" in the design also provides a dividend in longer expected/potential tire life in apples to apples use.

My Dunlop RS3s I ordered from you have been great so far, but I'm always looking for the next set of tires.

Cheers

BEST ANSWER: Longevity of a tire is based on many different aspects. The PSI of your tires , the weight that is on the machine. Road conditions etc..
