Enter the 4th dimension with the Pro4 Service Course, Michelin's direct replacement to the popular Pro3 Race.

This race-ready tire beautifully balances speed with durability, using a supple 110 TPI casing and a completely redesigned tread. Knowing not to mess with a good thing, Michelin shifted their redesign focus from materials to shaping. They pulled from their MotoGP division to create a new tread profile which delivers enhanced grip over the Pro3, despite this tire's similar makeup. At the end of the day, the redesign also resulted in a slight increase in wear resistance, allowing riders to get a few extra miles out of their rubber.

The Pro4 Service Course is available in various 700c size (622 ISO) and colors. It features a folding bead and its actual weight is 205 grams (700c x 23mm).

The rest of the Pro4 lineup includes the Pro4 Endurance, a direct replacement to the puncture resistant Krylion, as well as the Pro4 Service Course Comp and the Pro4 Service Course Comp Limited, both of which are race-specific event tires.

The only tire I will use!!!

I use this as an everyday tire. I run it at 100 lbs and I find it very reliable in terms of punctures. I have used Continentals, Hutchinsons, Schwalbe and Vittoria's and they don't beat the reliability of this tire.

Supple, very low rolling resistance, but not the most durable.

I use this tire on my carbon road bike. I ran my first set together and recently had to replace the rear tire. I can say that the best feature of this tire was the way it felt on the road. It felt supple and fast. The feeling against the road made it seem like every pedal stroke wasn't being wasted from friction and being put into putting the bike forward. It was definitely an improvement over the Specialized Espoir and Continental Gatorskins that I have used before.

The only quip I had about the tire was its durability. I put on a pair of these tires at the same time and after about 900 miles, the rear tire started to have constant punctures and the tread was significantly flat. However, I'm still running the front tire and seems to have no wear on it.

Overall, I'd totally recommend these tires to anyone who wants a great feeling tire for a good price.

Once you switch you'll never go back

After reading several articles about 25mm tires vs. 23mm tires I ordered these and mounted them on my bike. I'll never go back to 23mm tires. This is a much more comfortable ride with no noticeable downside. I'm a 71 year old recreational rider who logs about 80 miles a week in 20 mile rides on a steel Independent Fabrication frame. No more harsh bumps from the 23mm tires.

Great race tire for the money!

I bought a pair of these for a recent foray back into road racing, and they're just as good as I remember from my collegiate days. Quick rolling, grippy (after a brief break-in period, maybe 50 miles or so), and nice and high volume. Would highly recommend for your racing needs!

Excellent tire at an incredible value!

I ran Michelin Pro 2 tires for years on both of my road bikes and loved them, but the Pro 3s were extra difficult to get on and off the rims and seemed to result in flats more often then I had with the Pro 2s, so I moved away from them for a few years. I went back to the Pro 4s as they were on sale and I decided to give them a go. I was pleasantly surprised, they grip as good as ever, are much easier to apply and remove from the rims and the 4s are very durable and I got a couple thousand miles, at the least from the tires. This is a significant improvement. I was so impressed with the Pro 4s that they are once again my go to tire and I run them exclusively on my road bikes. The tire is great value and well worth the price. I highly recommend it.

Nice Overall Clincher Tire

Quite a tight fit new out-of-the-box, had to use tire irons the fit onto the rims. 'Not really hard on my tires, but these seem to be wearing fairly well, with good traction and handling. Excellent value when on sale from Bike Tires Direct.

There are the only tires we currently use on our road bikes

Very grippy and excellent road tires. They wear out pretty fast but that is the trade off for good road tires that are light and grippy.

White color looks great, puncture resistant

I have a time trial bike with white accents, so I searched high and low for white-rimmed tires which were highly rated, light weight, and puncture resistant. I used to ride on Michelin Pro3 Race tires, and then switched to Continental Grand Prix Grand Prix 4000S. Now I'm back to Michelin Pro4 Service Course and I'm pleased with them so far.

Fast, fast, fast

Very fast tires, only a few Victtoria tires are faster. These tires are somewhat fragile however, and their longevity is not great. One of the best racing tires, but inspect them before every race. I personally would not buy these tires unless they are on sale.

Separation Issues

Have had some issues with separation of tread/sidewall. This has been a fairly recent issue and may have some relationship to movement of the manufacturing center. For the first few times it happened I took tires to Michelin dealer and the tire(s) were replaced. The most recent tires also have some separation (minor compared to others) issues. I have not had a lot of issues with flats and maybe it is because I tend to ride away from far right side (where all the trash is located).

600 miles and no problems.

I purchased a set of these a while back on sale. I usually ride conti 4000 S II. Got these only due to the sale price. After getting these I was reluctant to put them on my spare road bike because of all the bad reviews. After 600 miles I have yet to have any problems or flats. Perhaps I received a set from the good batch released? I was really expecting the worst but now I must say I'm happy I put them on and got a good sale price on them. I ride on well maintained roads for the most part.

Zero Durability - Not Worth It

Bought for road riding in city group rides. They handle ok BUT I had a flat in less than 15 miles. It was a tiny piece of shell fragment that was probably in some light gravel. I was able to break the fragment between my thumb and fingernail,so it obviously wasn't very formidable of a road hazard. These tires don't stand up to much at all. This is the second pair of Michelin tires I've had problems with. I think I'm done with that brand for good. I had a $XX pair of Mavik Aksion on my bike before these and went for 2 years without a flat. The little bit of weight advantage these tires have is NOT WORTH having to buy a whole new set after one ride. Just be warned.

Defective TireBatch Issue?

I will add to the small group of riders noting a big issue with this tire. I also had an issue of riding a new tire purchased from BTD and after about 500 miles seeing the bead beginning to separate from the sidewall and the tire surface turning gummy to the point I could rub it off with the surface of my thumb. I have ridden Michelin for quite a few years (riding 3,000 miles a season on average) and I wonder if they have distributed a bad batch of tires that are the result of a flawed process. Worst of all, tow communications to BTD (one email and another phone message) have gotten NO response. Shabby customer service from a company I thought was better than this.

Flats and a blowout.

I had about 300 miles on these tires before I took them on a weeklong 450 mile tour. Neither tire survived the tour. The bead on the front tire separated from the side wall, causing a blowout. The rear suffered two punctures, one from a tiny piece of radial tire wire and another from a small shard of glass. The glass left a gash big enough to render the tire unusable. This is the second time I've bought Michelins and I've yet to have one reach 1,000 miles.

DO NOT BUY Michelin Pro 4 tires!!

I have purchased a total of 3 sets of Pro4 tires with ivory sidewalls from BTD. First set, no problems, so bought two more sets. Second set, tread separationcracking ALL THE WAY AROUND BOTH SIDES OF BOTH TIRES at less than 500 miles. Gave Michelin the benefit of the doubt, possible manufacturing anomaly? Pulled them off and mounted the third set. Front sidewall turned gummy, (but not the rear!!) and blew out a sidewall with less than 500 miles. I see that the ivory sidewalls are no longer an available choice of this tire by BTD - possibly too many complaints?? I now note other reviews complaining of tread separation and gummy sidewalls. I would strongly suggest that you NOT BUY AT ANY PRICE!

you couldn't pay me to ride these tires

Every person I know riding these tires flatted frequently and often last year. Probably 10 times the flat frequency of Schwalbe One, Vittoria Corsa, and Conti Grand Prix on the same roads at the same time.

OK all-rounder that doesn't excel at anything

Out of the box they ride nicer than GP4000Ss, since that seems to be the main comparison point. But they're no better in that regard than Bontrager R3s or R4s let alone Vittoria Corsas. My set of Pro4s lasted 3500 miles before I lost confidence and relegated them to the indoor trainer, at which they're doing a fine job. They only flatted a couple times over their lifespan and that was towards the end. I won't be buying another set because they're just not fast enough. Their rolling resistance is high compared to similarly priced tires, both in numerous tests you can find online and what I felt on the roads. Gp4000Ss, GP Supersonics, Vittoria Corsa CX and SL, Veloflex Corsa, and Bontrager R3 and R4 are all noticeably faster tires that don't give up much, or anything, in flat prevention or handling to the Pro4s. If you can get them for a really good price and your intent is to use them as a training or bad weather tire then they could be useful. Otherwise there are better tires out there.

To many flats spoil your ride

I just bought a set and never had so many flats in one day, I had the PR04 Endurance and never had to worry about a flat. they roll fast but punctures spoil your ride, never buy them again. Lasted less that 200 miles
