Is this tire the "ZR" and what is the difference between one labelled only "R"
John Putt - May 8, 2018
Hello John, than you for your question. "R" just means radial. The Z in the size signifies a maximum speed capability in excess of 149 mph, 240 km/h. Check out this video, How to Read a Tire Sidewall: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3fFy0f1CAFs - Kyle & the Chap Moto Team

Best R1200GS Rear Tire
These are probably the very best road tire for the BMW R1200GS, at least from my experience and that of some friends. Wet traction is by far the best of any motorcycle tire I have used, they also do very well in the corners and pretty much excel at everything a good street tire needs. This is NOT an off-road tire by any means. I also got the most mileage from this set of any tire I have ever used. They are also extremely quiet tires although I use earplugs so tire noise is not an issue. I would definitely buy this tire again, running the GT on the rear and Trail version on the front of my BMW GSW.

Best Heavy Bike Tire
I ride a BMW K1600GTL. It is a heavy bike that requires excellent tires. I've been using the Michelin Pilot 4 GTs and absolutely love the tires. I've ridden from So.Cal to Iowa and experienced extreme hot and cold temperatures. The bike and the tires performed flawlessly. We had rain and hail heading into Denver and extreme heat in Utah. The Michelin Road Pilot 4 GTs gave me a confident and secure feedback under all conditions. Cost is the only downside of the Michelin tires. They are the priciest on the market, but I don't mind if they are the best. Since the K1600GTL is such a heavy bike I realize that I will not get much more than 10K out of the set.

Safe Reliable Tire
I found the Michelin Pilot Road 4 to be a safe reliable tire for my ST1300 Honda. I rode it through the mountains of Colorado, the plains of Nebraska and the twisties of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The wet traction was outstanding on most all surfaces. The dry traction was very good, but the combination of a heavy bike, aggressive braking, and heavy throttle used up the sides very quickly on the Tail of the Dragon. I ride with friends that use the PR4 for each replacement. I will try the Road 5 when it becomes available.

4th Set I Am Very Happy
Bike: BMW K1600GT. I was running Metzeler Z8 tires but was only getting about 5000 miles before running down to center wear bars on rear tires and sidewalls on front tires. Switched to Michelin Pilot Road 4 GT and I am getting close to 9000 miles per set. Riding style is spirited sport touring, backroads and even a long distance Los Angeles to Alaska round trip last summer. This is my 4th set of PR4's and I am very happy with the performance. Dry road traction is very good, wet road traction is exceptional as I have done plenty of wet road riding in Colorado, Canada and Alaska. I also have been on plenty of dirt and gravel roads and the tires did as well as can be expected for street tires on a 720 lb. touring bike. I install and balance my own tires and these tires are very consistent in requiring very minimal balance weights.
