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,

  • Dry surface grip
  • Longevity
  • Maneuverability
  • Stability
  • Wet surface grip

Got the Michelin Road 5 rear tire, alrea ..."

Blackend13 - April 22, 2018

Got the Michelin Road 5 rear tire, already have the pilot road 4 on the front still. And all ive got say is ive got abot 1000 miles on it this year and i am loving everybit. Cold, hot, raining weather it performs very well, to the fact of i no longer have any chicken strips on either side of the tire. Again great tire would recommend to anyone. I am only giving 4 stars as of now, since i dont know the mileage i can squeeze out of them yet.
