Default Michelin Pilot Road 3

Looking to switch tyres at the start of next season.

I'm on a striple, not a very aggressive rider, no track days... Mostly commuting some country road blasts nothing crazy.

Has anyone used the pilot road 3s on a striple?
Useful feedback?
Other good options?

I have read lots of great things on them I have not personally ran them but I do have the Pilot Road 2's and really like them. I came from 2 sets of Pilot Power 2 Ct's and it took some time getting used to the Pilot Road 2's due to the face that tire profile is different. The Road 2 and the Road 3 are nice and sticky and you have zero issues with traction. I have ran the Road 2's in the pouring rain and they stuck.

The Road 3's have better syphoning in the tire for the rain. If you plan on running in the rain a lot then get the Road 3's if you have occasional rain then go for the Road 2's. The Roads all have really great mileage for tire life.

I got over 10,000 miles on the Pilot Power 2 ct's! My pilot Roads are at 3,000 and look brand new. I have zero chicken strip on the rear. I run them hard

No, no one has ever ran these tires.

Do a search, tons of people that ride like you seem to love the tire, plenty of grip in dry and wet from what I have read.

I recently put them on my D675. For the first 100 or so miles they'll feel strange. (The bike will be resistant to turning at first, then it'll will drop rapidly on its side.) And from experience, they are AMAZING in the rain and in standing water. They warm up VERY quickly and have plenty of grip. I'm hoping to get 10k out of them as I am pretty easy on tyres.

After seeing the percentage of tire with groves in it. I went with the Pilot Road 2. Great tire. If you did a ton of rain riding the 3s are great.

PRII should be good for 10,000 miles but the last few go very quick. (not mine in the picture)
I have 7500 on my PRIII and they still look nearly new.

That tire in the picture is mine, has just over 10,200 miles on it. In the morning, there was zero sign of cords showing - that all happened near the end of the day. Others that have had the Pilot Road 2 tires have confirmed as well, that when your rubber is flush with the wear bar, the tire is DONE.

I don't think you can go wrong either way, with the PR2 or 3, get the one that has the best price at the time and run with it.

I have ran and loved the road 2's on the rear with usually a softer tire up front. They last forever. Might have to try the 3's
