Michelin Pilot Road 5 in Front and 4 at the Rear
on: 08 June, 2021, 07:46:01 PM
Hello:
I currently have Road 4s front and back, but  have to replace the front as its worn to the "tire wear indicators".  The rear still has plenty of thread. 
My question is, should I replace the front with the newer generation Road 5, and eventually do the same with the rear when it's time, or stay with the Road 4 all around.
Is there a problem with mixing the two generations of the same brand/model of tire. 

I'd like to stay with the Michelins as I've had very good experience with them. 

Many thanks for your help.

Iím running a Dunlop Road Smart 3 on the front and a Michelin Pilot Road 2 on the rear. I donít have any issues at all. I canít see a problem using different generation tyres front and rear.

Thanks for your reply Bob.  I'll replace the front with  a road 5, and eventually do the same with the rear when its worn.  Happy trails. !!
