Michelin Road 5 Tires on Order

February 4, 2018

The Michelin Pilot Road 4 tires I’ve been running on the R1200R were fantastic while they lasted but are nearly done at 7k miles. There is still maybe a couple thousand miles of tread left if I baby them but they have fairly uneven wear and are not as grippy in the wet as they used to be. It’s time for new tires.

After doing some research I decided to go with the brand new Michelin Road 5 and ordered up a pair yesterday. I should be getting these mounted next weekend and after I put some miles on them I’ll write up a review.
