Tyre review: Michelin Pilot Road 3

Michelin Pilot Road 3 tyres, £235 (approx)Miles covered/time: 1000 miles/six months What’s good: I tried a set of these Michelins on a Honda CBF1000 that I was running over winter a while back and they were amazing. Sticking them on my old 1998 Honda CBR600F has transformed the braking, handling and wet grip. The bike is so much better than it was...

Great tyre

I've been using the Road 2 and they are the best road tyre I've ever had. Grip is well beyond what I need and the life is awesome. I ride a GSXR1000 and used to use Pirelli Diablo Corsa and also tried the Pilot power 2ct and TBH the road2 grip as well on road use and last at least twice as long. I can imagine the Road 3 is even better. A very impressve tyre.

Excellent tyer's

I currently use pilot road's which are only something like £146 to buy and i use them on my XJR1300 and i'm mighty impressed with the mile's i've had out of them, so if the pilot 2 & 3 are any better i'll be happy to try them one day.

i had these on my Gen2 hayabusa , used to get around 4,500 to 5,500 miles on rear and 8,000 on front and they were well and truly shot. even did 2 trackdays at cadwell in them, great in the wet torrential in scotland,but quite slow steering, compared to my current Dunlop sportsmax word of warning the deep treads and sipes make them fall apart on a dyno at 195 rwhp, i could pull huge chunks of rubber off with my fingers

See how it goes

I have a new Triumph Street Triple which came with Pirelli Diablo Corsas. I use the bike to commute and I couldn't feel confident when it was wet with those tyres (which are great in the dry summer months) as they couldn't get the heat into them. Given its now late October the weather is only going to get worse so I was recommended the Pilot 3s by other riders and I have just made the change so will see how we go...

I currently have them on my Suzuki B1250S. They are a good tyre, heaps of grip even when cold and work well in the rain. I have done about 12,000 km on them and they are nearly worn. They are a bit too soft for my liking. The front right is worn heavily. I might try Pirelli Angels next as I've heard they are harder.
