    Pirelli Angel GT II

    I suspect, based on remaining tread, I'll be looking to replace the factory tires this season.  Factory installed Angel ST's so decided to look for GT's to replace them.  Visited Pirelli site and see they released the Angel GT II now.  Has anyone seen these "in the wild" yet?  I've checked a few of my favorite mail order places and see the GT but not this new version yet.  Haven't contacted Pirelli yet to see if they have actually been released but wonder if I should hold off as long as safe.

    Hey Rick505,
    I was just checking for a replacement rear tire yesterday after I picked up a hitchhiking ten penny nail, and did not see an Angel GT II on any of my go-to Vendors websites. I figured something might be up though, when I saw the OEM Angel ST at a heavily discounted $130, vs the GT's $190. I ordered the ST, as I doubt that the GT can provide the almost 50% additional tread life to justify the cost difference.

    Good to know.  I'll check the ST's for price.  I'm waiting on Pirelli to let me know if the GT II's are even being shipped in teh USA.

    I think this will replace the Michelins I've got on the trophy right now when they've done their job.

    Interesting, when I clicked on "Rear" it said not available.  Perhaps it was using the front size for the rear or something since I had been pricing that size first.
