Sorry I'm being really thick here.

So when looking for PR4's the sizes I need for my 2015 Xrx are:

Front: 110/80/19
Rear: 150/70 R17 69V

AND I need to choose the trail version which are actually 100% for road use?

I know I am being slow but I just want to be 100% before I buy them online.

Yes, right sizes. You can only get the front 110/80R-19" (59V) in the 'Trail' version. The rear is available in either 'Trail' or 'Road' version (69V) I had the 'Trail' as it was the one they had on the shelf and I would assume the carcass is slightly stiffer for the adventure bike weight? In theory the 'road' should last slightly longer as it only uses med/hard compound and the 'trail' version uses soft/med as shown in the chart a few posts back.  :028:

:084: It must be old stock PR4's as even Michelin could not supply my Michelin dealer tyre shop (Protyre) PR4's any more back last August when I needed a new rear. I had to pay a bit more and settle for a PR5 (trail) and will likely put a matching PR5 on the front early May for the forum Megameet and Lake District twisties as the PR4 front, while still having a couple of mm of tread, is starting to cup and form lumpy centre tread. When I had the rear fitted the front looked good and I had hoped it would last through half the rear PR5 life making it a convenient 3 rear/2 front but it seemed to hit a point where is rapidly goes off.  :003:
Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!

Thanks for the reply mate.

I know I was being a bit dense but wanted to be certain.

Thanks again.  :031:
