These tires came and were DOT stamped 2015 and 2016. Doesn't get newer than that! Great tires, the best prices, and the best customer service. Can't beat motosport!
Michelin Pilot Power Front Tire

You don't have to be world champion to get your hands on Michelin racing tire technology. Pilot Power tires use a rubber mix that was originally developed for MotoGP racing, and a tread pattern that covers less than 12% of the tire's surface. The result is a maximum lean angle of 50.6 degrees on dry pavement and 41.9 degrees in the wet, achieved with a stock sportbike.
- Rubber compound reaches operating temperature quickly.
- Incredible cornering grip.
- Impressive durability for a high-performance tire.
- Designed for high-performance sportbikes.
- Suitable for street or track use.
- MotoGP-derived rubber mix.
- Tread pattern covers less than 12% of the tire surface, for phenomenal cornering adhesion.
- Synthetic rubber mix derived from MotoGP tire technology, formulated to maintain consistent performance even at advanced stages of tire wear.
- 50.6 maximum lean angle in the dry, as measured at the Michelin test track.
Have not been able to ride to much. Mounted easy very little weight to balance . Durability we will see .Mounted on a 98 Honda Magna. Good fast shipping & filling of my order.

I put this tire on the bike. I really enjoy the feedback from the road that I get since installation. I have about 2000 miles on the bike now. Still impressed for the price I paid. I would buy it again.
I have been using the Pilot Powers for a while now and they are the best all around tire. Mileage isn't the greatest but I would rather pay a little bit more in the long run than risk the tires not performing.
These are great tires lots of grip and a low warmup time. I bought this as part of a combo and was able to purchase both a front and back for the price of just the back at my local mega store. Shipping was fast and free, will definitely get these from here again.
sticks really well. got deployed for a year and the bike sat in the elements for a year. Came back tire held up. no problems
This is a decently priced tire that grips the road pretty well and won't wear out in 2 months. I hate paying people to do something I'm capable of doing myself, so I mounted the tire myself and must say this is the easiest tire I've ever done!! It slid onto the rim with ease and the bead sealed tight without having to wrestle with it. I wouldn't try racing with it, but definitely a good road tire.
This is the only tire that I will use on my '02 CBR 954. I have installed 3 sets of these tires and they are excellent in all conditions. I live in the northeast and ride into November and the tires still have grip even in the cold.
I will most likely not switch to different tires. I have 25000 miles on my bike and about 20000 of those are on Pilot Powers.
this front runner is awsome on the not so smooth roads, its holds its ground when there isnt any. would recomend this tire matched with a michi rear anyday for curvy enthusiast
This Michelin Pilot Power front tire is a great tire for the street and will work on the track, as well. It ran mid 1:30's at Jennings GP race track (14 turns in one lap) for two full days on my ZX-6R. I still have a lot of life in the tire and have saved it to put back on the street. Great for the street and doable on the track, especially if you are just getting into track riding. Good bargain.
Although I don't have a lot of experience with street bike tires, these seem to do the job quite well. Quick warm up and good grip through all lean angles that I've got enough guts to put them through.
THESE TIRES ARE GREAT FOR THE STREET AND TRACK DAYS. YOU WOULD HAVE A VERY HARD TIME REACHING THERE LIMIT ON THE STREET.
This front tire was an amazing improvement over the stock dunlop I had on my bike. It tracks better through corners, has a more stable ride, better all around. I paired it with a 160/60-17 rear pilot and the whole experience riding my bike got that much better. The bike rode smoother and handled much better. Great price for great tires.
The second best you can do for carving the canyons in most weather conditions. I am partial to Perelli Diablos but most of my riding mates prefer the Michelin. It is a bit soft, takes a fair ways to warm up and wears quickly. But they never "grease" out or go hard on you and can be used on the occasional light rain day.
