OEM Bridgestones 7500 miles toast, Angel GT A specs 14,000 finally coming off before National, still lots of tread just flat from slabbing on interstates. Rode the first set of Angels to Cotex from Illinois in '15 and then to Helen last year won't make trip from New York to Missouri 2000 miles round trip.   :motonoises:

Dunlop Q3 with 5100 hard miles. Suspension makes a huge difference in tire wear. Ohlins front and rear.

Angel GT's, 3000 miles and they are toast. Used them before and the last 3 sets were the Avon 3DXM's which lasted 6K miles at least on the front. Reason I went back to the GT's is I had some Jake Bucks and a 40 dollar rebate so they cost me 199 shipped.

Next set is going to be the Dunlop Road-smarts. If I don't like them I'll try the Metzlers

Must be my speeds were way less than yours as I got nearly 7000 out of them.  I ran them at 40PSI

I just replaced my set of Angels at 9000 miles with about another 1000 miles of tread on them. Heading away on a trip and didn't want to chance it. Another set of fresh Angels on there now.

Were they A Spec Front/rear?


My rear was A spec, front was not.  This time around I'm going A spec on both.

I ordered a set of Angels last month from Bike Bandit. Price was $245 for front and rear. After I placed the order, I noticed they were STs, not GTs. Oh well, the price was right so am now running these. Will update as they age.

Hi,
       I have the same, (Ohlin's) and... >:D

Started a thread on "tire savings", running better suspension... :-[

Sort of as a joke, but???? ;D

Everything helps I guess! :great:
