Michelin PR4 v PR3

Anybody know for sure what the differences are between the Standard PR4 and the GT PR4;  is it just a slightly higher load index or is there some difference in the hard centre compound or its width.
 
Having just at the Mich site their claims as to increased longevity and wet grip (esp on white lines :064: ) between the PR3 and PR4 is incredible if we are to believe the marketing hype - this is a quantum leap forward.

There is a video on the revzilla site that explains the difference - you will have to search for it Andy - the internet police won't let me watch it at work

Thanks for that - and now for all to see:  http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/michelin-pilot-road-4-rear-tires   Hope there will be a little more tech info forthcoming from Mich soon also.
 
Looks as if the main difference between the standard and the GT is a stiffer casing for the GT (reflected in the load index) rather than any further changes in compound.   Could be good for those going two up (or chunky peeps) with an abundance of luggage and may help get around the abnormal centre wear patterns that some have suffered with both the PR2 and PR3 when going on a long tour.
 
And I thought the PR2's were good.  The one thing I am absolutely sure of is that the BT057's were made from Stone  :008: .

PR4s delivered yesterday - now realise how little tread is left on my current tyres !

Good service from TyreLeader.co.uk - thanks for the link Richard

You're welcome.  :002:
Who'll be fitting, at what cost and is that to loose wheels?

(For customer supplied tyres, companies near me want to charge around 15 per tyre for fitting to loose wheels or 25 per tyre including wheel removal/re-install)

Its due an MOT and the brake n clutch fluids need changing so rather than dick about I've booked it into a local garage to get a few odd jobs done altogether. Not negotiated a total price yet....
