    Default Michelin Road 5's fronts available soon!

    I got confirmation from Michelin USA that the 120/70ZR-18" tire that fit's stock XR front wheels, is in production & available soon! Great news, as I have a brand new rear PR5 ready to install. The part # for that tire is: #38133. I've heard/read many good things about the PR 5's, and I''ve ran 3's on my XR for over 5 years & love them.

    Is that the 18" version, Geno?? The 18's haven't been available for awhile, as I called on them a few months back & they said it was on back order. Everywhere I've looked for them online, only lists 17"s. Maybe the had a batch early in the year & they all sold out...

    Yep it is an 18". I probably was lucky to get it before they were back-ordered. I assumed from your original post, that you may have been under the impression that they were not yet available:

    The successor of the Michelin PR4 (Pilot Road 4) is the "Road 5".

    The 18" isn't listed.
