Time for a new set of wheels

Post by Zapper » Mon Mar 24, 2014 5:46 pm

The rear tire is gone after 5000km so it's time for some new but i don't really know which to choose.

Pirelli angel gt. http://www.pirelli.com/tyre/gb/en/motor ... el_gt.html Touring tire that hopefully will last a bit longer.

Pirelli diablo rosso II. http://www.pirelli.com/tyre/gb/en/motor ... ype%3Droad Sport tyre with better grip.

Continental contisportattack 2. http://www.conti-online.com/www/motorcy ... _2_en.html Sport tyre with better grip.

Anyone tried any of this tires? which would be the best fit for the bike?

I have the Angel GTs on and they're good and I think will give good mileage but I still think the best tyre for the money are the dual compound michelins, Pr2/3/4...I had PR3's on before the GTs and the confidence in the wet was brilliant...the PR4s are supposed to have a harder center compound for more miles with softer stuff on the extreme edges...

I ve got a set of Rosso 2 on and the rear has lasted 2000 miles. Good fun while it lasted though.

Got a set of Angel GTs to go on next.

The michelin tire seems to be a solid tyre but how is it compared to the gt in the dry and the feel?

2000 miles and the rear tyre is gone, that's a bit to quick for me.

Tried the new tyre yet?

Yes, and to be honest, I don't need anything sticker. The angels seem good, warm up quick and I can get right over edge without issue. Only time will tell how much longer they last.

I cannot afford £200 every 2000 miles, so hopefully I get at least twice the mileage from the angels.
