Default New tires for cbr600f4i

My mitchelin pilot road 4 tires are worn out.

I don't do much mileage, so mostly want something grippy in the wet and dry.

Any thoughts on pilot road 5 / power, or should I be considering something else
thanks

If you liked the tyres you had on why change?

Michelins (PR4) last long and have good wet/dry weather performance

I had pilot road 4 and now pilot power, find the power really good.. have changed suspension since so cant do a back to back comparison but I do like the pilot power. Had a lot of moments on pilot road 4 but others like them so I'd say it was my suspension was the issue with the pr 4.

Iv the Pilot 5, find it to be an unreal tyre.
I had Pilot 3 on my old k1 600 and find this far superior.

See if you can find Avon Spirit ST

Avon are a brilliant brand for our climate/roads.

(or Pirelli Angel GT)

I bought a pair of PR 5 trails for my Explorer today in Cottor. They had a cash back offer which finished today from Michelin

I have a Michelin Road 5 on the rear of my Tiger 800. Have only put about 500 km's on it and no real problems other than I find it is quite a bit noisier than the scorpion trail 2 it replaced, that could be down to more tread as it's a new tyre. The pirelli squared off a lot so I wanted to try another brand.
