Pirelli Angel GT

Hi: Getting ready for new tires and the local independent I trust is recommending the Pirellis for my K7 Vee. I don't see that tire mentioned in the tire threads here. Any particular reason why - price? My riding is almost 100% pavement sport riding. I have the tourance on there now which I am happy with. Any thoughts appreciated.

My guess as to why it is not listed is most of the tires listed are for dual duty both on and light off road use.

Great tires if they come in Strom sizes, I ran them on my C14 and loved them.

have a look here: Metzler Tourance Next | Adventure Rider

As per the German Motorrad Magazin test, the Pirelli was very good on dry, not so good on wet and had the least longevity.

They are amazing in the wet, and that was on my last almost 700lb 140 hp bike.

Thanks for the feedback. Will probably go with the Pirellis; always willing try something new and it really is going to be all pavement at this point.

Cool -- I had no idea these were available in "adventure bike" sizes.

Check back in a few weeks and let us know how you like 'em!

Then wear 'em out and let us know how long that took.

I would like some feedback on them also. They cost almost as much as the Michelin PR4's, and I assume that is one reason they are never posted about. The PR4's are not getting as good of reviews as they should be, imo, and the only reason I would pay a premium price for either is if they truly deliver 20-30% more mileage. I would like to try a set on the RT.

For the V Strom, if you like a pavement tire, it is hard to beat the Bridgestone T-30's or BT 023's. Under $220 to my door. Great in the wet, not twitchy in the turns like the PR3's, 7,500+ miles on the rears and fronts about twice that.
