Has anyone had any experience with the Michelin Pro Race tires? How well do they wear? Are they prone to getting cuts in the outer casing like the Axil Pro's?

I have put approx 1500 miles on mine and so far, so good... They are wearing well with no flats. A few minor cuts,(sometimes you can't avoid those) other than that they are working & wearing great

I've got 1200 miles on mine & no flats, very little wear & NO cuts! Now that I've written this I am sure I'm in for a weekend of flats! :)
What's the difference b/w Pro Race and Axial Pro?Fez

The website basically says increased cut resistance. Anyone ridden both tires and have a preference?

Honestly, I cannot really tell the difference between the two tires, other than the fact that I seem to have less flats with the Pro Race tire. They also say that the Pro Race has less rolling resistance as well, but, again I cannot tell the difference. I will continue to purchase the Pro Races because of the seemingly increased sturdiness.

4800 miles and got my first flat monday. I probobly wore them down more than I should have. A new pro race is on the way.
Note: 1/4 of my miles are on rollers. I dont think rollers wear tires as fast. So it might be safe to say they really have 3600 miles.

or the Pro Races are really durable. I used to get about 2500 out of the old Axial Pros, so I wasn't expecting much more from the Pro Races. I weigh 170, so my mileage is probably less than a lighter rider's . . .

I weigh 145 and finally replaced my Pro Races with new Pro Races after 4500 miles. Not because I had to, but because I was freaked out by how much mileage I was getting out of them and couldn't believe they could still be reliable. I'm sure they were, but I do a lot of training races on them.
