    Has anyone run on PR5s

    Its almost time for new tires. I got 10k miles on my set of PR4s but the front is showing its age. I have probably until the end of the riding season here which is october. I took a look and noone has PR4s in the FZ6 size. Has anyone run the PR5s yet and can tell me how they felt? I loved my PR4s.

    Re: Has anyone run on PR5s

    If you mean pilot road 5, I consider them the best road/touring tire at this moment. Especially on poor road surfaces (gravel, sand, etc), they are very good.

    Dry grip on perfect roads isn't THE best out of the sport touring segment (conti road attack 3 are a bit better when hot), but overall I have more confidence on the pilot road 5. And maybe not relevant, but these are the first street tires where it felt safe to go up to 50km/h on hard pack dirt.

    Can't say how they compare to the pilot road 4, but they are much much better than the pilot power 2ct (hated those overrated crap).

    Yes Pilot Road 5s....

    I loved my PR4s so I am hoping the PR5s would be even better.
