    3 failed attempts at plugging my rear “pilot 5” with tar strip failed with loosing around 10 psi every 2 weeks…

    a small staple penetrated into the water Channel and just could keep it sealed… the tire only had 3000km on it…

    Replaced with pilot 6 $410 aud….

    Feels great

    I'm being pedantic but there's no such thing as a Pilot 5 or a Sport 6.  :001:

    Michelin dropped the Pilot name back in 2018, they are now simply Road 5 or Road 6.

    A bugger that it only did 3k but sorted now....  :028:
