Michelin Road 5 Tire Review: 6,000 Mile Update

November 4, 2018

I’ve had this set of Michelin Road 5 tires on the bike for over 6,000 miles now and, honestly, there’s not much to report. Wear has been incredibly even, no flat spotting or unevenness.

They still grip just like when they were new and there’s no real difference in handling, wet or dry. Right now I’m guessing another 3-4k miles is doable, if the wear stays this consistent.

My last set of Pilot Road 4’s were worn fairly flat in the middle at the same mileage and you could really feel it at low speeds. The Michelin Road 5 is a winner for both longevity and handling.

Here’s the previous posts from my long-term Michelin Road 5 review:
