To try the new Michelin Pilot Road tire I absolutly loved my Macadems 100X on my Blackbird got 8,065 miles on the rear, the front has another 4-6 grand to go and no CUPPING So naturally the dicontinued the tire The "Road" is the replacement, stickier yet the same mileage as the 100X I wll beleive it when I see it.
A bit off topic but about a month ago I picked up a nail in my Pilot Road rear. The tyre didn't deflate and I took it off and took it to my local dealer for an opinion. I thought I might have to replace it but he patched it.
Seems rather than plug it they apply a (approx.) 3inch x 3 inch patch to the inside. Says Michelins are okay to patch as the inside of the tyre doesn't tend to disintergrate like some others ( he mentioned Pirelli).
After 2000 km's I am finding the Pilot sport to be running out he center quick on my Bandit. Tire is fantasic but I think its life span is a trade off. Thinking I should get about 6000 to 7000 if the wear continues...
