I have just replaced my first set of PR3s with another set after 9,843 miles. I have never gotten more than 6K miles out of a set, so I am quite impressed with the new Michelin rubber. Having said that, I must admit that better than 70% of the mileage was on interstates at less than 75 mph (organized run). At this mileage and on so many straights, the tire was squared off down to the wear bars.
So far (225 miles) on the new set every thing works well, that is, except it gets squirelly in the snow. I had to ride up to Mount Laguna just to see about traction in the wet; water is good, snow is not. I am not expecting to get the same mileage as the previous set because most of my riding is in the mountains with very little straights, but I lick the tires.
Just chiming in for the what-its-worth category.
