About Road Race Tyres
These tyres are for racing style bikes that use clincher/hooked rims, these are the most common fitment and hook onto the rim and require an inner tube. There is a wide choice of tyres within this category and the right choice is important. Lighter tyres will accelerate quickly, but will be more prone to punctures so getting a balance is extremely important. If you require a tyre for all round use look for something with puncture protection, an average TPI(Threads Per Inch) and average weight. If you require a fast tyre and speed is the only thing that matters look for a low weight folding tyre with high TPI. If durability is your priority and speed is not so important look towards the puncture resistant tyres and consider going for a wider tyre, these will be less prone to punctures and offer a bit more comfort. For wet road conditions a triple compound or winter tyre is a good choice, these use a softer compound on the cornering surface to maximise grip.
About the Michelin brand
The Michelin tyres saga begins 1891, with the invention of the first demountable tyre for bicycles. Over the ensuing years, Michelin has never stopped technological innovations for bicycles, such as the first flexible-bead clincher in 1978, the first tyre with a high-density carcass in 1983, and the first tyre with a high-performance silica rubber compound in 1995. In 2000, Michelin introduced the first tubeless tyre for mountain bikes, and has been testing tubeless road tyres in competition since 2003. Riding with total confidence in your tyres means that grip and safety must be optimal under any conditions, in extreme weather or at high speeds. It’s why year after year Michelin introduces technological innovations and develops products with ever-higher performance. Nowadays, the development of bicycle tyres benefits from the same research methods used in designing tyres for Formula 1 and even the space shuttle. Michelin is the only manufacturer developing tyres for such diverse R&D environments. At Michelin they are more than just a tyre manufacturer. They are a community of men and women committed to social responsibility. Below are examples of how they strive to reduce our impact on the environment while delivering greater value, riding pleasure and security.

Magazine reviews for Michelin Pro3 Race Folding Road Tyre
Review from Bikeradar
The succesor to the well-regarded Pro 2 Race, the Pro 3 is a full-blown race tyre rather than dedicated winter rubber.
However, it throws down a gauntlet by claiming to be 'virtually puncture proof' and 'extremely durable'.
It's certainly fast, the best rolling tyre of our 'tough tyres' group by a clear margin, and puncture resistance is reasonable.
It's not as tough as the other race tyres and the grippy tread can pick up surface cuts more easily - without failing. Use it for your best bike rather than a trainer and you can't go wrong.
Tough enough, grippy and very, very fast. It's pricy, so save it for best.

Hope that helps
Tends to make the tyre lighter... Less rotating weight means the wheels are easier to accelerate...
And you can fold the tyre up if you want to pack them anywhere (if you need to!)
Good points are their light weight, supple nature and smooth tread.
I've found on the road they tend to wear too quick to be of any use doing training miles as they are a pure race tyre IMO. Perfect for indoor or outdoor tracks though if you're running clinchers. Go for it!
the manufacturer recommends 8bar for up to 100kg rider I believe
I weigh 90kg and I always have them at 10bar
They fly at 10bar and don't see any punctures plus the rolling resistance is minimal even on low cornering
good luck and enjoy
Personally I run mine at 105-110 psi (pumped) since I weigh 14.5stone, I don't want them too solid!
