wrolseth88 - November 22, 2021

Im in florida just got through rain season the tires hold up very well in the rain great grip. the problem im having is the front tire is cracking really bad inside the treads and i only have 3500 miles on them ive been daily driving motorcycles for over 5 years now and ive never had a tire do that and the michelin rep will not do anything about it.

Hi Rolseth, Cracks in the tread can have different causes depending on their location on the tire. If found on the crown, it might be due to product aging or exposure to ozone or UV. If on the sidewall, it might be due to overheating due to the carcass working too hard (used when underinflated), aging or exposure to ozone/ prolonged exposure to light. If found on the crown and splits are deep and reach the plies or carcass, we would advise you to replace the product. If found on the sidewall, please make sure you check your tire pressure every two weeks (especially now it's getting colder), check your DOT to verify age and store your bike away from sunlight.

PR5 On Triumph Sprint ST 1050 I'll be buying again

Horse - November 17, 2021

Hi all, I've had 4 sets of Pilot Roads on my Triumph Sprint ST1050 and about to buy my 3rd set of PR5's. Grip and stability is fantastic in both wet and dry conditions on the New Zealand roads. Durability is great too last 2 sets of PR5's lasting 16000kms and I'm very happy with that. If you haven't tried them and are looking for some great all rounders give them a go.
