Michelin Pilot Road 3 Front Tires Building on the tremendous reputation Michelin has built over the years, the Michelin Pilot Road 3 Tire is the successor to the award winning Pilot Road 2. With the Michelin Pilot Road 3 Motorcycle Tire you are really getting 2 tires in 1, by integrating a soft rubber compound on the tread shoulders with a wear-resistant compound down the middle, Michelin gives you the best of both worlds. The Pilot Road 3 is a dual compound sport-touring radial tire. Revolutionary X-Sipes technology maximizes wet traction Michelins newest technology delivers all-weather performance without compromising tread life or handling Patented innovation resulting from years of research and development Sipes increase the tread's drainage capacity Sipes generate pressure at the edges of the sipe blade, which helps to break through water film Two compound technology combines tread life and cornering grip 2CT incorporated into all tire sizes, front and rear Wider soft-compound shoulders on the front tire, compared to its predecessor High performance and environmentally sound 100 non-aromatic-oil rubber compound

I studied the reviews and videos prior to getting this tire. After placing my order it shipped to me in three business days. Once installed I was so impressed with how much more nimble and comfortable my fz6r had become compared to the factory installed tires. I got the Road Pilot 3's primarily for touring and needed long tread life with excellent wet control and handling. When riding in wet conditions I was truly impressed. Very good grip keeps my confidence high and riding in even wet conditions is a joy. Price is worth it because the tire is worth it, just check the reviews.

These tires surprised me right off the bat. My order came in 3 business days with free shipping! Got em installed and the traction is a tremendous difference from my stock Dunlop roadsmarts. My fz6r feels nimbler and I have more confidence making aggressive turns. Riding in the wet is much safer as I am more confident which is quite nice and is actually what drew me to these tires along with tread life. The price is worth it. Research reviews of the tire online and from everyday folks on youtube.
