Michelin street tires!!!!!

I've had a lot of people ask if Michelin is getting rid of the pure, they are not. They are however getting rid of the pilot power and the pilot power 2ct for a new power3. Don't expect to see this tire until after the first of the year. I'm waiting on all the info to hit myself but did have a chance to see the new stuff coming out for the next year.

Re: Michelin street tires!!!!!

Thanks for the heads up Tommy!

Keep me posted on em man. I would like to know if it will be a better intermediate/wet tire for me than the pure. I love the profile, but almost wish the sipes went a liiiitle closer to the edge. A little wiggle never hurt nobody tho! In the meantime, they are my goto for a partially wet track since nobody could get me pirelli wets this year.

Re: Michelin street tires!!!!!

Interesting, Id be willing to try new tries when the time comes, but I'm very pro Dunlop.
