Michelin Road 5's?

Was checking these out for when the Conti's wear out. Noticed a lot of you guys praising the road 4's and thought maybe these were the next step up in evolution. Watched several video's and Michelin claims they improved wet and dry grip. Any of you running these and what are your thoughts? thanks

I've ran Pilot Road 2's and 4's and have been very happy with them. When I need another set sometime this summer I'll likely go to the 5 unless I can get a deal on a set of 4's.

Right on moon. Yeah the 5's are actually cheaper than the 4's right now. I suspect they have them discounted to bring buyers over from the 4's. Then the prices will flip flop.

I'm running the 4's in raincouver (vancouver BC) and while I don't do as much rainy driving, the roads are quite slimy here very oftem and the 4's are quite impressive in the rain and in the dry.

I believe I am sold on pilot roads. Just too many sport standard people running them. I used to like the battleaxes back when I rode a lot. Seems they are still really cold natured and Im over slick tires in the morning lol.

I tell anyone that will listen, the Pilot Road series is the best tire for 98% of people on the road. Great wet weather grip, great longevity (I've never gotten less than 10k miles out of a rear and have gotten close to 15k) and can handle any sane street riding pace with ease. I even did my first two track days on a set and never had an issue with them.
