    Pirelli Angel GT tires

    Just got the Pirelli Angle GT tires for the bike. I had the OEM Dunlops on before. What a difference! I can feel more bite in the ride and more confidence in turns. I have not rode in the rain, but I have heard good things. I only have a 100 or so mile on them, but they are really nice tires.

    They are realy nice tires, never let me down in the rain or on dry road. A lot of people say the Michelin Pilot Road 4 are the best for wet roads, but i'll still buy the Angel Gts again once mine are worn off.

    I once fitted angel ST ,they felt different to the bt023 but were grippy enough ..trouble was they only lasted 6000 miles . Have you noticed the mileage on the GT ? .. I am thinking of the anakee 3 for mileage reasons. (and the fact the roads have lots of farm mud and gravel where I live)

    +1, I really liked the Angel GTs except they wore out too quickly, IMO. Think I managed just under 7k miles on mine, whereas I get over 10k out of PR3s and PR4s.

    What kind of mileage are people getting out of the Anakee 3?

    I loved the GTs on my bike, and still have one on the front. I got about 8500 kilometers out of my rears, but based on my observations my tires don't seem to last as long as most others on the board....
    I switched out to a Battlax S20 on the rear mainly because of the price difference. If it doesn't last as long I'll likely be going back to the Angels. I really miss the nice, symmetrical tread pattern on the rear though with the S20......that kind of stuff gets my ocd up lol

    To answer my question, people are getting big miles out of the Anakee 3. This guy is at over 16k on the much bigger and heavier BMW R1200GS. That seems to be an exception, but most reports I ran across people are routinely getting 10k+ out of them, a la PR4.

    I ordered one up to replace my worn out Conti Motion. We'll see how it does....

    Correct, no 17" front sizes. I ended up going with a 170/60 rear, it was a little closer to the OEM 160/60 diameter vs. the 150/70, but I think either will work just fine.

    Keep us posted on how you like it, mine doesn't show up until this weekend.

    Also been happy with my Pirelli's. May put some dirt tires on it sometime just for fun and the look. But for now. I'm going to have fun with my Angels.

    The GTs are OEM fitment on the Motus.
