Default Re: Michelin Road 5 Announced Jan 2018

I loved my PR4's had 3 sets. Tried a set of PR3's as I hadn't before and peeps on here loved them.
They were cheaper too.
However I'm regretting it. My worn out bike got on well with the 4's. Hates the 3's.
Rear wheel slips out at the slightest bump/corner. Still getting plenty of practise when it does.
Hoping they perform better in the summer.
I might give these a go in 6 months time. Toooldtodie - looking forward to your review.

33/36, admittedly it's not been checked since I fitted them. Good shout, I'll do that later today.

Yeah, well at the moment the roads are covered in mud from tractors (bike looks like a muck spreading trailer) and any rain seems to freeze a car driver's brain, so I haven't been giving them much stick, but they seem pretty competent in the wet and ploughed through standing water. Will give a more balanced review when I've ridden in conditions other than cold and wet when hopefully it will be more useful. That said, they do seem to work well when cold too. So far, bloody good!
