Michelin Road 5 - Rear Tire

The Michelin Road 5 is a tire you can get excited about. Building on the Michelin Pilot Road 4, the Road 5 maintains the mileage and other great characteristics of the Pilot Road 4 while improving the wet and dry grip. Great for communiting, these tires are W-Rated to handle your weekend riding and anything else you can throw at them.

Michelin Road 5 Wet and Dry Grip

Michelin® Road 5 tires combined Michelin 2CT and 2CT+ technologies with the latest generation of compounds and siped thread to offer an outstanding wet grip without compromising the dry grip.

Exceptional Wet Braking Longevity

A common critique of the PR4s was that they would lose some of their performance earlier than most would like. Michelin says the Road 5 tire will stop as well or better at 3,000 miles as a brand new PR4 due to the use of the patented XST Evo siping and ACT+ technology.

Ride with Confidence

Michelin's patented ACT+ casing technology provides improved stability and handling over the Pilot Road 4 tires providing a real confident feel through your turns.

Michelin Total Performance

When Michelin says total performance, they mean they aren't trading making sacrices or trade-offs. Safety, durability and the thrill of riding, the Michelin Road 5 offers you the best of them all.

Michelin Road 5 – Rear Tire

Michelin has become a household name in tires, so it's no surprise that their Michelin Pilot Road 5 rear tire is something to talk about. This international company invested over $800 million in 2017 alone for research and development. The Michelin Road 5 tires were debuted in 2018 and have become a popular choice among both casual and performance riders. If you find yourself riding in less than ideal weather conditions and need a rear motorcycle tire, wet & dry grip should be at the top of your shopping list of features.

Michelin Road 5 Tires

There aren't many tire options that incorporate as much modern technology as Michelin Road 5 tires. Michelin put their hefty Research & Development budget to good use when designing the update to the Pilot Road 4.

Their proprietary Two Rubber Compound technology, referred to as 2CT+ for the rear wheel, provides the best of both worlds when it comes to grip. Not only do you get exceptional grip and riding experience during dry conditions, but you also get it without sacrificing control and safety during wet weather.

ACT+, or Adaptive Casing Technology, is an innovative design for the shoulder of the tire. With varying levels of rigidity at each point in the tire's curvature, you'll experience both better stability and increased performance when cornering.

Rear Motorcycle Tire Wet & Dry Grip

When it comes to a rear motorcycle tire, wet & dry grip is essential. Whether you are a weekend rider or commute to the office every day, you need to know that your bike's tires offer safety and performance no matter the weather. One of the most important features of a wet and dry grip tire is siping.

Siping is not a new technology. However, Michelin's XST Evo technology is much improved over the features commonly seen in tires. With XST Evo, grip during wet conditions doesn't diminish over the life of the tire. This advanced spin on well-known technology is only possible with the use of new 3D metal printing.

Great tire so far
Feels a little stiffer in the sidewall than the PR4. Turns in quick and easy.

Questions 1 - 1 of 1
Have Honda 2005 VFR 800 Interceptor ABS. R the Michelin Road 5 good for not aggressive touring occa on not well paved, graveled or dirt paved (somewhat rough) roads? Thanks
Alan • Jul 19, 2019
Best Answer: I would say NO, The Road 5 is a Street tire/Sport tire. I would think something like the Shinko 705 would be a better choice for rough and gravel, I use them on my Dual Sport bike and they work very well. The kicker will be if they have the sizes for your bike.
