Power RS
« on: May 14, 2018, 08:37:45 AM »
Anyone fitted Michelin Power RS tyres? I was talking to my local tyre dealer and he was raving about them. Was wondering what they are like in the wet?

I rode a tricked up Street Triple with them on at the weekend and they felt very very good.

It was either the tyres or the K-tech, nitron and Carbon wheels :-)

Had them on my XR, sticky as.....Now have an RS on the front and Road 5 on the rear due to an unfortunately bad rear puncture and my mostly motorway work commute.

The RS isn't as good in the wet as the Road 5, but it wasn't designed to be.

Can you let me know what they are like in the wet? I always found the M7 RR’s excellent so interested in your comparison.

Interested as well.

Currently have M7RRs on with just over 5k kms on the set and they are fantastic. barely look used since new, even after the track day.

How can you have done over 3000miles and a track day on a set of M7RRs and them not be worn out :-D

I only got 2200miles out of a rear S22 and I assume they are a similar level of sporty softness.
