The new Pirelli Angel GT
« on: June 02, 2013, 09:42:33 AM »

I found this article on the GT. But what I was looking for and unable to find, was a review comparing the Michelin PR3 vs the Angel GT.

What I am personally looking for the best rain tire...regardless of longevity

Interesting review, thank you for the link.
Anyway, tomorrow I'm taking my Trophy to a garage to mount the Angel GT, it seems that Angel ST is no longer the "officially" recommended tyre

I've used both the Angel ST and Pilot Road 2s on my former bike.  They both work great in the wet.  I don't notice the difference between the two other than the PR2s did seem to last a bit longer because it's a dual compound tire.

I think the GT and PR3s should both be good tires.

Hello,

something that I don't like at the Angel ST is that he don't like iron or street markings. For years I'm riding Pilot Road 1 at my Tiger 709EN and haven't missed these little "side-steps" a little bit. Hope that the GT are better in this point.

Cheers,

Phew! I thought it was my riding style! The Road Pilots on my CB1300 never moved a muscle but like you, I have noticed the STs do not like white lines and damp roads with sharp bends in them.

Same for me, specially with white street/road markings together with rain! :110:
