Every Pilot road I've ridden, 1,2,3,4 have started slipping on tar snakes at 4k miles...unnerving. Mileage ok, like 8-8500, not going to bite at the 5s, Michelin had their chance.
two favs are Pirelli Scorpion trail 2 s and Tourance Nexts. Scorpions were a bit of a smoother ride, Nexts handled dirt and gravel better. Both have excellent wet and dry traction, Both are giving me around 10k miles, IOW better than the Pilot Roads.
Mileage is a personal thing (YMMV), but relative to the Michelins the Pirellis and Tourances are giving me 20%, maybe <25% better mileage, a better ride and more confidence.
