    Greatest tire ever!, June 10, 2013

    I have a complete set of these to replace my bald front tire and squared, ancient rear tire on my 2007 Kawasaki ZZR600. I can’t review them as a pair, so each product page will get the same review. You should always replace tires as a matched set anyway. Amazon shipped these INCREDIBLY quickly, all the way out to Maui within just a few days after clicking “confirm”. It was by far the fastest shipment I’ve ever received, all at no extra cost thanks to Amazon Prime!

    The tires themselves arrived bundled together with straps and I was initially alarmed at the exposure they faced, but an extremely careful inspection yielded no evidence of hurt or flaws caused by either shipping or manufacturing. The sidewalls are extremely tough, yet supple enough to permit mounting without resorting to whatever thing farthest. They went on the bike without any surprises, and a quick check for static balance showed no sticky weights were required – spot-on!

    The tread design is nothing small of incredible, and every rider that catches a glimpse when you’re parked will find themselves drawn in for closer examine. The rear tire has this clean zig-zag pattern in the center, interrupted by circular wells at every apex to permit water evacuation. The front tire has these incredible lines cut laterally across the face of the tire, effectively turning the entire thing into dozens and dozens of have fun blocks. It looks odd in pictures and in person it’s unquestionably fascinating.

    Be extremely careful on the first test ride. When groundbreaking new, they went quite a lot under seat until scrubbed in. I had ridden for thousands of miles on my ancient tires, which were bald in the front and effectively a square block on the rear. The ancient tires started to lean, then stopped when up against the sharp square part. After pressing on the bars harder, it quickly dropped over without any feedback, making for a pretty uncomfortable cornering experience. When at the limit (which wasn’t even at a high speed), the front end would push very hard, without any feedback when it was getting close to breaking traction. In comparison, the first tight turn on the Pilot Road 3s was INCREDIBLE – the bike instantly flicked over with only the slightest input on the bars and just gripped and gripped forever. There was buckets of communication across every inch of lean throughout their entire array, and the increase in traction was nothing small of intoxicating.

    The Pilot Road 3s are a dual compound tire – they have a much harder compound in the center of the tread for longevity during commuting, and the remaining third on either edge is the same compound as the Michelin Pilot Power 2CT, which is a very sticky race-ready tire. You can really feel the transition between commute compound and 2CT sticky compound when you’re monument up the canyons, which is incredible when they’re nice and warmed up. When hot, you can really directly abide by the change in compound if you poke at various parts of the tread with a fingernail. Even with the blended part of 2CT on the edge, the Pilot Road 3 is not a substitution for a right super-sticky tire, so don’t get your hopes up. For me, the reduction in dry traction at farthest lean angles was more than worth it for the farthest increase in wet weather traction with the Pilot Road 3’s tread and compound design.

    In closing, the Pilot Road 3 is an unquestionably stunning tire and the exact choice for the rider that needs a tire that will go in any and all conditions, with no compromises for grip when some spirited riding beckons. When I was shopping, I had really narrowed down my selection between the Pilot Road 3 and a full 100% racing compound tire. I’m glad I went with these, because a few weeks after installing them I was caught in a rainstorm with a buddy that had racing tires on his bike. He was not having fun and had to slow way down, saying that he was breaking traction everywhere and eyeballing paint strips in the road, argumentative that rolling over them was like hitting ice. Meanwhile I was having a blast, digging deep into every corner and splashing puddles like a kid. I have no regrets about these, and when I wear these out I’m certainly ordering another set!

    I place these on my 2006 CBR600RR and I can’t say whatever thing here that hasn’t already been said. If you’re considering these tires and reading reviews like I did previous to Imade this buy then you’ve read all the incredible feedback from everyone else. All I can say is that “+1″ everything they all said. Go ahead and buy them … you won’t regret it. If I ever wear these out, I’ll replace them with exactly the same thing.

    Bought these tires after reading many, many reviews. Was a small uneasy after looking at them as they looked to be more of an ATV tire once received compared to the sport bike tires that I had on the R1. After installing them and breaking them in for the first 500 miles took them on a road trip and I reckon these are the tires that I’m going to stick with for the life of the bike. I’ve ridden on dunlaps, pirelli as well as a few others and for a highway ride these are what I prefer. They do make a small more noise, like a car tire would. And at first I looked back thinking there was a car right up on me a time or two. But they ride very well.

    Also if you lay on the throttle when it has been raining you can def tell when you go from the harder rubber to the softer. So be careful out there. It just might send you for a loop if your not careful.
