    Comments about Michelin Pro Race 3 Road Tire:

    A well made resilient tire. The Michelin Pro3 mimics the feel of a tubular tire (glue-on) while simultaneously combining it with the durability of a clincher. Those complaining of its puncture resistance or wear are usually getting pinch flats installing them or are underinflating. Good buy, stock up.

    Good tires in terms of performance and a great value now that the Pro 4's are out, but they don't last long. Side walls puncture easily. I'm on my 3rd front tire in two months.

    Comments about Michelin Pro Race 3 Road Tire:

    Very smooth ride an improved my mph average. Tires turn well too but I think these will wear down quicker than my old hard case bontrager tires. Definitely a cheaper purchase on nashbar than anywhere else.

    Only issues, you might need better brakes because these tires take longer to slow down and they are pretty slick on wet roads. Other than that very happy with my purchase.

        Decent tires. They roll faster than my previous 23mm Bontragers and mounted up fairly easily. Gotten one flat from a goat head thorn but they can penetrate almost anything, so that's to be expected. Very pleased overall.

          The price can be high unless on sale. 3000 miles on the rear has been my average, no punctures first 2000 miles. I ride between 4000 and 5000 miles per year.

            Comments about Michelin Pro Race 3 Road Tire:

            These felt GREAT for the first 300 or so miles. Then I flatted on a small but sharp rock. My fault. OK. Two rides later, again. Hmm. Then it seemed like every other ride I flatted. Two in the front, five in the rear tire. During the last repair, I noticed three seperate spots on the rear tire where the rubber was worn through to the plies. 500ish miles.

            Still riding on the front one, an old Hutch Fusion on the rear. The bike feels slower, but my average speeds aren't much different.

            These might be great race tires, but they're not for a recreational rider like me who wanted to try a "fast" set of tires.

                I am new in this sport and I just have 4 weeks riding. I replaced my tires after a week of riding and even when I have no knowledge of what good tires are I can certainly feel a dramatic difference between the tires that came with my 200 dollar bike and the Michelin Pro 3. I highly recommend these tires to those who start with a low budget bike as myself.

                  These are great tires, I have been getting them for years now, light weight and decent prices. They get about 200 miles before I start seeing cords so they aren't the longest lasting tires. I live in an area with goat head thorns and can't say these get more flats then other kevlar tires I have used.

                    on my 3rd set and have gotten pretty close to advertised 2100 miles on each set. Not sure why there's been an issue with some people here with 3-500 miles. I can only think they were underinflated & or people were relatively big.

                      I use PRO3's for clubrides and racing/training. They hold up as well as one can expect and feel great underfoot, lively and fast. Nashbar is selling out their remaining stock sine the PRO4 is now the flagship..grab a pair!
