The pr5s are easily as good as the 3, probably better, and last longer, never noticed any lunge for the imperfections in fact they seem to just roll over most features of our modern road surfaces. Very sensitive to tyre pressure though on both bikes, more than I recall with the 3s, with the steering starting to feel like porridge if a couple of psi out.

I never got on with the PR4s Martin they used to make a lunge for any imperfections in the road, I haven't used Michelins since.

Neither did I hence why I used Dunlop’s for years,but was then and this is now....
