Good Sport Touring Tires
After a 5,500 mile trip on a laden R1100RS, I've come to really appreciate these PR3s. I rode on a mix of slab and back roads, in hot weather and some rain, and they performed well. Looks like they still have a few thousand miles left on them. They are getting squared off ( the profile actually looks more like half a decagon ), so cornering transitions aren't as smooth as when new, but that's to be expected. They've held air well; I had to top them up 3 times in 3 weeks of travel between 8,000ft, sea level, and back. While I was happy with my previous PR2s, I think these are a step up all in all.

I THINK the pr3 wears better than the pr4 with similar performance on the front. So I'm running 4s on the rear and 3s on the front

26,000 miles of reliable excellence on a BMW.
This is the 3rd Mich R.P.3 front tire purchase for my F650CS (a 50hp single cylinder touring bike for me).
1st rolled 21,000 miles and 2nd rolled 26,000 miles.
Never short of traction in rain or shine; 99% pavement use.
I pair this front with a MPR4 rear tire for excellent feel/handling.
I plan to use this combination as long as they are available.

Michelin pr3 are great bikebandit not-so-great
I've used Michelin pr3 for quite a few years I love them they work great. Bikebandit however did not communicate very well after the purchase, like most vendors they did not send me information about when I would receive my purchase. Bike Bandit could stand to do more work around customer service.

I've used the Michelin Pilots on several bikes over the years and love them. Now if they could just figure out how to prevent nails and screws from puncturing.

I owned Michelin pilot pilot road 2 on my other bike, and i trust Michelins in new york weather
robert m on Mar 3, 2018
Direct replacement for existing tires. Good performer.
Don H on Sep 11, 2017
These are the best tires I've ever had. Performance in wet and dry is excellent and the wear characteristics are outstanding. I got 18K miles on my last front and 14K from the rear (on a CB1100). It's a shame Michelin is discontinuing this model. I don't need tires yet, but I'm ordering them while I still can.
JohnAZ on Sep 2, 2017
Quality, price and strong user reviews.
David W on Jul 16, 2017
I owned a set of Michelin PR2 prior to this and was completely satisfied. I thought since this was the next improvement, I couldn't go wrong with this tire. I ride a Yamaha FJR
Montec on Jul 5, 2017
Good wet weather tires for the NW but prefer the PR2 in the summer for the feel.
RC51 Still Rocks! on Jun 30, 2017
My boyfriend has them and highly recommended them.
Mikal H on May 26, 2017

Had the Pilot Road 2's got great traction, mileage, it changed my handling for the better. Want to upgrade to 3's based on great reviews I have read.
John G on Feb 19, 2017
This is my second set of these tires. I got good wear performance and they track the road well. I never had any issue with hydroplaning and braking did not disappoint.

BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! Yes this would be a good option for your machine. Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with.
Is this tire a hard or soft rubber. Will this tire be compatable with a Bridgestone 130/70-18 excedra max. I have a Yamaha 1900 Stratoliner 2009.
Bob on Jan 22, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! This is a dual compound tire, harder in the midddle for longevity and softer on the shoulders for grip. Normally it is recommended to stick with the same styel and brand tire for front and rear. Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with.
