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 Best Tire &40for Some People&41

Anyone who knows much about tires is aware of the fact that one can't have it all. Individual riders have to make choices about what characteristics they most value and which are less important. If, like me, you value traction and ride quality over longevity and puncture resistance, this may well be the tire for you. I definitely get more rear flats with this when compared to the GP4000sii. I'm willing to take that trade, as the ride is far superior to the Conti. I do a lot of VERY steep climbing and VERY fast descending on very smooth, clean roads. For me, this is the best tire for these purposes. I do sometimes run this tire up front and the Endurance version on the rear. It still feels nicer than the Conti and resists flats compared to the Service Course. I ran the GP for many years, switched to this for a couple years, and just recently tried the Schwalbe One and GP4000sii again to remind myself why I left it. I'm back to the Pro4sc in a 25mm (which is 28 on my slightly wide rims.) I also think it's one of the best looking tires out there, as it's very subtle. I hate the tread on the GP4000, which, in my opinion, serves only to collect dirt.

Excellent all round tire

Great tires for race and everyday riding. I now only use the black as I've found in the past that the color sidewalls sometimes get soft and gummy, and mess up the rims.

Great tires

Michelin tires accelerate nicely and have great adhesion! I like them a lot. I have been noticing recently that they seem to be on sale a lot. Maybe they are getting ready to come out with a 5 series tire. Michelins seem to be a little bigger than the average 23 mm tire, and actually ride more like a 25 profile tire. We can use less tire pressure yet get a smoother, more responsive ride.

M-Pro 4 Service Course sidewall flatted under 100 miles

I had just under 100 miles on a new set of M-Pro 4 Service Course 700x25mm that I purchase from Bike Tires Direct on 12/11/14 and the rear tire side wall blew out on a ride today. The side wall is paper thin! The tire pressure of 100 psi was in accordance with the manufacture. Either the tire is defective or Michelin's quality has gone downhill. I've used Michelin in the past and never sidewall flatted.

Best training tire ever.

Pro 4 Service Course tires handle great yet are rugged enough that I have actually worn out them without ever getting a flat. In Tucson, AZ with all the thorns and debris on the road, that's quite remarkable.

Excellent Ride, but wears quickly.

I've used the different series of the Michelin Pro for 9 years. The feel is great, it's a lightweight soft tire, corners well. However, I have had 5 flats this year on Michelin Pro4's, and am only getting about 2,500 miles on the rear wheel. I only weigh 165. Great tire, I'll buy more.

Not the best for a clydsdale

I really like the tire and give it good rates but if you are a clydsdale like me I would stay away. I started using these at the start of the season and with about 2,000 miles on them already seeing heavy wear and dealing with flats on the back.

I started rotating between the front and back to try and make them last longer and this has helped but I am now dealing with flatting issue on the back.

These just do not handle weight well and start wearing quickly if you are a clydsdale

Otherwise yes these are great tires, they handle and hold the road well.

I am riding city roads in Dallas which are the best but had tires last longer.

Soft Ride, Runs Big, Iffy Cut/Flat Resistance

I do like these tires, but may change to the Pro4 Endurance. They ride beautifully and have tons of grip. I am running 25mm both front and rear, but they actually measure closer to 28mm on some wide rims...so watch for tight frames. I also have a 23mm that measures closer to a 25. So I love the wider tires and the lower pressures for a great ride, but have had a few rear flats. All of them caused by bits of wire getting stuck in the soft tread. I also notice some deep cuts and gashes forming around the tire. So I would not specify they as a high mileage daily rider...but I still enjoy them anyway.

Great Tire, couple of thousand km's and no flats

A great tire. I only use the Michelin PRO tires on both my bike and my wifes bike, and a great deal when BikeTiresDirect has them on sale or daily special. I used my Pro3's Race for three years with no flats. They ride really comfortable, and deal with both rain and dry roads really well. I have descended down some mountain passes in the rain and the tires held the line through the corners and never slipped. They seem fairly light and insubstantial when I first tried them, but quickly became my favorite tire. My wife has about 1500km on her Pro4's and hasn't had any issues so far. I put over 3000km on my Pro3 Race before needing replacement.

Typical Michelin Tire!

Like most Michelin tires for some time now, they have good rolling feel, very good handling, but suffer too easily from punctures. At their price and in their respective category they are typically a good tire, but there are far better out there.

The tires hugged the road very well with no slips and with a smooth ride.

Active rider in the California wine country the rides are from 40 to 60 miles. The performance of the tires are smooth and comfortable. I have not noticed any slips. On the negative side of the tires. The areas I ride are mainly in the wine country and recently I have had flat tires? The reason for the flats are from thorns. While in the city areas I have not experienced any flats. I inflate my tires to 120 psi.

Great tires ... are wider than listed

Currently running the 23s on lightweight, time trial wheels, and 25s on year-round, road racetraining wheels. (The 25s are really about 28 wide.) Outstanding, supple, durable tires. Have run the Michelin Pro Service Course tires going back to the Pro2, Pro3, and now Pro4. Have not experienced a failure or even a (the f-word which must never be uttered.) I'm careful, also lucky. The 25s (actually 28s) are wonderfully comfortable over rough roads and seem to be fast and have low rolling resistance. I only perceive that the 23s might be faster for time trials, perhaps by next year I'll succumb to the current trend and switch over to the 25s for everything.

Good value and superior performance. A strong Tire

I ride a lot of heavily traveled road shoulders. People have a penchant for trashing the shoulders and glass and other hazardous items are common. The Michelin Pro 4 Service Course Tire provides great value and strength and, most importantly, I've experienced fewer flats.

These are very durable and have an excellent ride quality.

I train on mile after mile of very, very rough 'chip seal' pavement with little or no shoulder, subsequently I usually have lots of cuts, punctures, and flats. Not so with this tire. It also gives me as good a ride as I have ever experienced on these poor highways.

Has become my favorite tire

I can't say that I have tried all the tires out there, but I can say that these tires have worked well for me. Great looks, low rolling resistance, and not flats. What more can you ask for. The are a smooth tire so you have to be a little careful on wet pavement. But you need to be careful with any tire on wet pavement.

Best grip for the dough

I have used Michelin tires on my bicycles, cars and motorcycles since I sold them and installed them at a tire shop in the 70's. I have tried a number of tires on my many bicycles and have settled on the Michelin pro tire series for their grip and quality. My typical rides in my area include parts of the tour of California course including the KOM climbs. Yes the Michelins are soft but they are smooth and stable during the high speed descents that are our reward for the steep switchbacks we climb. If you are willing to give up some mileage for grip in corners this may be the tire for you. I'd say give them a try, I have been very happy with them.

These tires are great!!

I love these tires. I had switched to tubeless for about a year but ended up back with Michelin! They are easy to change if/when you have a flat but best of all they are strong enough to resist a lot of the common debris flats. They ride well on bike too.

I was very disappointed in the durability of these tires.

I purchased a set of these tires at the end of June 2013. Within 500 miles of riding, a sidewall in the front tire split and cause a blowout at speed. Upon examination of the front tire, I noticed small cracks or splits developing at different places along the sidewall. I then checked the read tire and noticed that it too was showing signs of splitting along the sidewall at various points. I removed both tires and do not intend to purchase these again. Disappointing, as these are fast and smooth rolling tires, but just not worth the cost, especially a blowout at speed.

not worth the money...

Rode on ride about 70 miles and then 35 miles the next day. At the end of the second ride the tire blew out on a smooth surface, no rocks... The pavement wasn't that hot, air temp was around 82 F. The tire was inflated to 100psi - well within the recommended range. I had a complete blowout with a 100 miles on the tire. I bought the tire and the recommended Michelin tube. Not sure what happened but it was not an economical experience. I've used different tires over the years and never had any problem with them. I usually get lots of miles out of my tires and great service. The miles I did get out of these were smooth and a great ride. I just need to get more than a hundred miles out of a set of tires... I normally change my own tires but wanted the bike shop to see it on the bike. Fortunately the blowout came within fifty feet of the end of the ride so I carried the bike to the end and had my shop look to see if they could determine the cause. They could not determine with any accuracy what happened but had an opinion. Let's just saw they prefer other tires.
