Any more feedback on these tyres?  I ride all weather conditions throughout the year.  I'm a bit concerned looking at the tread pattern about them completely clogging up in snow.  Otherwise, goign by all the reviews they look like a good tyre, and sound better than my tourances...

I can confidently predict they won't be a good snow tyre

I think its time to take the plunge into the realm of a new tyre size with the Road 5. Heard a lot of great things about the PR4 and my Anakees are pretty much shot after last year.

I had Anakee 3's and they lasted fantastically well, also a pretty good tyre for the road............Not sure why I went for something different  :187:

Anyway I too switched to PR4's, they are a great tyre, however with the tread design I did notice a lot of small stones do get stuck in the tread  :151:

So will the PR5's be better than the 4's and are they in real terms that much better than the Anakee 3's  :261: After all I would suggest the Anakee 3's would last half as long again as the PR4's / 5's...............Makes me think I might switch back to the Anakee's  :017:

Only time will tell & a few reports on here when people have them fitted  :028:

I am powdercoating my wheels and removing my PR4's does anybody think I should fit PR5's at the same time? The originals have a few thousand left in them.
I am only asking for opinions.
If I do does anyone want my PR4's
Thanks

Keep it simple, wear the PR4's out first.

I'm running on a new set of PR5's at the moment. They don't feel much different to the 4's really. Have ridden in dry, wet and slightly slippery. Seem sure footed to me.

Couldnt have put it better myself. PR5 are good, not as said,. not remarkably better (unless squared off..... guilty as charged)

Decided to go the whole hog.
PR4's free to good home only need collecting.
Not squared off thousands of miles left in them.
