Re: Long lasting tires?
According to the reviews I saw when recently purchasing a second set of Michelin Pilot Road 4s, people were averaging about 15k on them. So far I have about 20k, but they are bald. They are dual-compound tires meaning, soft on the sides, moderate hardness in the center. They are still good on cold roads. The siping gives them exceptional performance under wet conditions.
Note that the "Pilot Road 4" update is just called "Road 5"... they dropped the "Pilot"... and some of the siping of the 4s.
