    For this time of year I don’t think you can beat the Road 5’s, they’d be my pick of the bunch. Though be aware that Michelin have launched the Road 6 now, so might be worth waiting for that depending when they’re available and how much tread you have left.
    Got loads of tread left, just not sure how much luck I have remaining! Set off yesterday in torrential rain and then got salt-blasted on the way home! Doesn't bode well for the current boots...

    I didn't notice much difference. Tread pattern and wet performance is similar, but Michelins slightly steeper profile on front, so would steer quicker.
