Rear tire lasted 2600 miles and through the winter & spring grit season. I never got a flat, I just noticed a spot where the rubber was gone and the thread was showing. It could have been from a skid but I don't remember ever locking up the wheel I've really never been able to notice any difference on grip or ride quality of any of the tires I've used over the last 30 years of 5,000 miles of riding I do a year. Can't even say I noticed anything when I went to 25mm from 22mm. Miles per tire are about the only way I can judge really a tire. I've used them all Armadillo, Gaterback, hard shell, just about all of them. These tires lasted as long as any tire I've ever used. This is my second pair, I'm very pleased with them.
I installed the new pro4 Service tires purchased from B.T.D and took a few laps on Kissina velodrome in Queens N.Y , I found pro4 tires to be a solid and sturdy ride also smooth very good

I have been temped by other tires in the past including the tubeless ones, only to be extremely disappointed. I love my Michelin Pro tires -- I started with these at the recommendation of a friend for durable tires that were easy to change a flat with. They are long lasting and 15 years later I am still using them.
I first bought a pair of these tires a few years ago when my Continentals wore out. They were an immediate improvement in handling, speed, and rolling resistance. They lasted much longer than I expected, and I was commuting over 100 miles a week on them.
This, when the tires on my new bike died on a patch of broken glass, I decided to go back to the Pro4s. Since getting them, Ive found them to be durable and smooth as before, but this time they dont seem as fast, and theres actually more rolling resistance. I have think their formula has changed, so I wouldnt recommend these anymore if youre looking to go faster. They do wear well and hold the road nicely.
