Looks like the Michelin Road 5 GT won’t be released until much later in the year...

This is too bad, any links to this info?

I ran the Michelins under contract in the CCS midwest series and have been a fan ever since, from bikes to car tires.

A PR5 GT sounds like a good fit for the heavier STs we enjoy.

So just got a set of Road 5s.  Non GT, of course.  The Michelin labels on the tires:
Front 236kgs - 519 lbs
Rear 387kgs - 851lbs

I'm 200 lbs, my wife 115.   When we are together, no side bags and some overnight supplies in the top box.  When I tour with side bags and lots of gear, it is 1 up. 

Both 167mph top speed for those riding down a steep hill.....

BTW - according to one source I found, the Angel GT A spec front is 520 lbs

I have a modded C10 with 17" wheels.
I was pricing a new set of 17" PR4GTs when I ran across the PR5, I am tempted to give the 5s a go at a lower price than the 4GTs maybe worth a try. I believe all the load capacities are on the conservative side and could be used as a comparison between tires when considering weight capacity.
I know the GTs have a very stiff sidewall by the force to get the last one on the rim.
