    Anyone usedMichelinPro Race 4 Endurance tire?

    If anyone used this tire, can you compare it to:
    krylion/optimum/continental gp4000s? (handling/grip/flat protection)
    how many miles do they last on the rear?

    I bought a set at performance last summer for some reason.. On sale.. I usually ride conti 4 seasons or 4000s. I much prefer the conti's. The ride is more comfortable, and grippier. I put the michys on my wifes bike after 200 miles. So far the set have about 2000 miles on them. Wife weights about 120 so ymmv. I also rotate every 500 miles. I'd say they are much more durable than the conti 4000s, but less than the 4 seasons. The PR4 endurance will last longer as far as mileage goes.

    HTH.

    Tire wear is due to power dissipation (scrubbing rubber off the tire as power is transmitted to the road surface) so mileage will depend totally on power output. A heavier rider or a faster rider will wear tires more quickly and the range of wear can be quite wide.

    I have 25's and it looks like they will last about twice as long as a PR3 racetire so I will probably get about 2500 -3000 miles on the rear, about the same as a Krylion. Front will go 5000 or more. I weigh 200
