I have about 4000 miles on the GT2s with mix of slab, county roads with lots of twisties.
PRO: Easily longest lasting tire I've had. Including PR3, PR4GT, R5, RS3, Diablo ST.
        Looks like I'm likely to get 10000. Best before these was 7000.

CON: They don't like cold roads! I ride year-round. These stuck fine up until the temps dropped below 40 F.
        I can feel the front slipping on 'spirited'-paced curves (not a knee-dragger!). The front also steers
       heavier than all the others. Pressures are 36/42 at cold and peak at 40/45.

Bottom line: I'll go back to the Dunlop RS3 or Mich R5 next round.

My last tires were angel gt 2. They look good and riding is perfect, both in wet and dry. But they do not last any longer than the former gt1.
A tour back from Portugal to Holland of about 4.500 km. has worn them completely, specially the sides of the tires. In the middle the profile was still ok.
As the gt 1 's are about € 20,- cheaper each, my next ones will be the old type.
I asked Pirelli for some comment but from them there has not been any kind of reaction.
I love the Pirellis, otherwise I would think about a change of brand. On my Trophy 2013 now is the number ten on the back and the number eight on the front.
It has driven 60.000 km by now.

For those of us in the USA and near(ish) to a Cycle Gear store, I received a postcard showing a discount for President's Day Weekend Sale.

I have over 9000 miles on the factory Angel ST tires and figure I'd better be looking to replace at least the rear before the upcoming riding season is over.  Discount is $10 off $100 or more and $30 off $200.  I will need to have my local store order the tire as they show not carried in stock but for $221.99 less (hopefully) the coupon $30 and I can live with the $191.99 price plus tax of course.  Heck, I figure even paying them the $25 installation for tires purchased there it sort of evens out.  I'm hesitant to manually install a stiff rear tire with a TPMS installed.

Well, Not GT II's or even GT's but since I have over 9000+ miles on my factory ST's and I'm cheap (and proud of it) I went ahead and ordered a set of ST's using the Cycle Gear $30 of $200 code for $99.99 for each front and back.  The price was just too good since a rear GT2 alone would have been about the same price as the full set.  :038:

I would have considered doing that same deal.
The Angel ST tires are a good tire for that price.  :028:
