I just had Road 5's installed (had Pilot Road 3's that had done their job, time to go, though) and I've been giving them hell for the last month with a working trip in Albuquerque. Heat, cold, rain, these tires are pretty much what they're billed to be - an amazing set of rubber. Lean angles are fantastic, I feel fully confident to take the them to the edges, and have. I hope they last as long as the company claims, 'cuz they weren't cheap, but after the first thousand miles, they are stellar and show no worse for wear. And that's after some serious abuse, including rough back roads and gravel from work sites in the middle of nowhere.
