    Special Notes:

      SAFETY

      Inspect and check tire pressure often. This is the most important tire-maintenance function you can perform. Refer to your machine's documentation for proper maintenance. Always give tires a gentle "run-in" period of 100 miles to get the feel of new tires--this means they should not be subjected to maximum power, abrupt lean-over, hard cornering, etc. Always match the front and rear tires for optimal handling, safety and performance. Mixing radials, or mixing radials with bias or belted-bias tires, may adversely affect handling and stability.

      WARNING

      The charts and information on this page do not imply interchangeability. Consult your machine's manual to determine correct replacements, clearances, compatibility and stability, load-bearing capacity, speed rating, radial vs. non-radial, pattern and tread compound requirements, inflation recommendations and front-to-rear tire matching. Wrong selection can result in tire failure or loss of control with serious injury or death.

      When one of the best gets better, you'll ride with more confidence - rain or shine, hot or cold, city or highway. With its new XST Evo sipes, which widen as the tire wears, MICHELIN Road 5 tires offer effective water evacuation throughout the life of the tire. The new compounds are specially formulated to provide excellent grip on a wide range of road surfaces, including painted lines and pedestrian crossings, making it easier for you to ride with confidence in virtually all conditions.
    • A USED Road 5 tire with more than 3,000 miles of wear stops as short as a BRAND NEW Pilot Road 4 tire on a water soaked road thanks to the revolutionary patented MICHELIN XST Evo water drop sipes, which grow wider mile after mile.
