Tires are always an interesting thread, because we all have personal opinions regarding what works best. I have not a clue what is "best", but continue to experiment with each new offering.
My previous experience with PR2s lasted just over 5,800 miles, then, after using Dunlop, Conti and Metz I went back to Michelin and the PR3s due to an upcoming cross country trip. That set lasted 9,843 miles! I was astounded.
I, needless to say, put on another set of the PR3s expecting similar mileage and handling performance. However, this set was used only around locally in the mountains about San Diego and its surrounds and lasted 4,104 miles. Another set of PR3s have now been installed and will track this set, but I am still looking for that "best" fit.
Good luck on your decision. Ride safe.
