I installed them on my 2013 RT. I've only got a few miles on them but I'll let everyone know what happens. So far so good. They feel good.

About to mount my third set of Roadsmart III's after years of PR2, PR3, and PR4's. I've been getting maybe 500-1000 miles more on the rear RS compared to the PR.(5500-6000mi vs 5000-5500mi) I usually change front and rear together, giving away some miles on the front. Milage aside, the greatest improvements I notice are a much smoother turn-in requiring less pressure on the bars, less loss of contour as the miles pile up, and much reduced cupping of the front. The front especially does not seem to flatten on the sides like the PR's would, which may be responsible for the more stable handling with increasing wear. Can't speak to the wet handling issue. For reference, I ride a K1300GT, trail brake a lot, and enjoy dipping into the throttle liberally. I'm not a little guy either...250 easy ATGATT. I see little reason to try anything else. Most of my sportbike riding buddies have switched as well, even HP4 and Panigale riders.

i'm on my second set of r3 and first set lasted 7000 miles, i ride mostly two up and loaded to the gils usually! in my mind you can't beat them for the price and mileage. long time michelin man,used all from pr2 thru the 4gt. like some one else said handling is as good or better less noise and virtually no scalloping of front, with the rebate going again i'm sure to buy another set or two for the shelf for this season....


09RT now gone replaced with the WETHEAD

I was going to pull the trigger on some PR4GT's to replace my Avon front tire and a Michelin tire I had emergently placed in Boone during START. Glad I came back to re-read the reviews on the RS III, and I cannot believe how much more reasonable they are compared to the PR4GT's. Even if they do not last as long as they advertise, the cost savings alone are almost worth giving them a try.
