Changed last 2 sets of PR4s at 9k. Still had plenty of tread but the fronts were quite squirmy by then. 5s still feel very good at around 7k so may actually get more out of these.

I highly recommend the Conti Road Attack 3s. Phenomenal grip in all conditions, precise and positive feedback.

Am looking forward to getting Devon Sunset on the road with her new hoops fitted..!

My PR4 were a fine tire just squared off from a lot of commuting, I bought the bike with 47k on the clock and replaced them at 54k. The PR5 were supposed to last considerably longer but they havent. Im not terribly disappointed but for what they advertise I feel like I should have got more miles than I did out of it. Its to the wear bars on some of the sipes. Here is a quick photo earlier

Hi,

personally,I think the PR5's are great tire, in dry and wet conditions (the very best in wet conditions). The right PSI seems to have quite an influence on the way they behave and wear.
I'll check, but I think mine are at a higher PSI than recommended in our beloved TS manual.
Maybe some other users can chime in with their PSI for the Road 5's and their experiences.

All the best,

RM

Im at 59k and some change now so 5k and some Change. When i bought these they were touted as more mileage than the PR4, sadly they were not. I am stringent about my air pressures and check every time before I ride. They were great tires until they got to the wear bars then they wore down quite quickly.

Tyre reviews eh. performance on snow ffs, who writes this stuff. The RA3 has the R5 beat on all except snow. Ha. The only tyre that works on snow is a full blown knobbly.

Well the Conti's have it, the Conti's have it. As Bercow would say.

Maybe they do in Spain and nice warm roads and weather. I note the PR5 wasn't far behind. Like you say, who writes this stuff?

I want to see tests of tyres in the UK, or Germany, or northern France or Belgium. And in February or March, on cold, wet roads. That's the kind of report that might influence my buying behaviour .
