I would assume the tire will probably wear about the same as Pilot Powers which for me tended to wear out in the middle. My search has shown most places selling the 180 rear for about $150-155. If anyone has better or more accurate information I would like to hear it before I make my choice.
I think you might be talking about about the Pilot Power 2CT.

This thread's about the Pilot Road 2CT.

I think we all are, but on the page linked to for the cheaper tyres, there are no Road 2s (/ Road 2CTs, depending on the market one is in). There are Power 2CTs, and there are the original Roads, but no Road 2s. Which is where the confusion comes in.

This thread is about the Road 2CTs, which imho and as I said before, are an excellent compromise for those of us who have to commute or otherwise slab it up and wear the guts out of a tyre.

Re: Michelin Pilot Road 2ct

You are right, my mistake, I was talking about the Pilot Power, sorry about the non-pert accidental thread-jack.

Re: Michelin Pilot Road 2ct

Its Michelins fault - could they have made it more confusing?

They bring out two tyres (four actually if you consider front/rear) in the space of a maybe two years and they name the things virtually the same!

Re: Michelin Pilot Road 2ct

Alright you guys have me all confused...

Per Michlens webpage:

Pilot Roadē : The best balance tire
The ideal balance Independent tests confirm the Pilot Road 2 offers better wet grip and longer tread life than any of its competitors. How did Michelin incorporate these two contradictory traits in one tyre? MotoGP-derived 2CT technology makes it possible, using two distinct rubber compounds to achieve what was once thought impossible.

There is no mention of a Pilot Road 2ct tire just the PR2 tire (with 2ct technology).

I just got a road2 installed on my front tire to replace a road torn pilot power. I must say that the confidence that it provides is at lease on par with the pp front. I had it installed last week so I have not has much time to test it out, it has also not rained yet (will on Thursday and Friday). So I can't comment on the wet grip yet. All I can say is it's great to have a tire that is not worn down in the middle, makes all the difference in the world.

Let's keep the posting to opinions of the title.

It&#039;s better to look like a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.
