Pirelli Angel GT Rear Tires
Used to replace old tire
I bought this tire to replace an older one. I consider myself a novice/relaxed rider and so far the tire is much better than the old one I had on there... since i just bought it i can't yet comment on service life

Shot at 4677 miles, 2003 Z1000
Bought these tires based on reviews of 9000 + miles. All I can figure is these guys ride like a 90 year old, coming back from church on Sunday. I was Pleased to get the 4677 miles that I got from them.My riding style is kind of in the middle, I commute, and run twisties. I usually only end up with about 2500 from a rear. They were great in the curves, hot or cold, great in the rain as well. The front is at the wear bars. I will be going to the Battlax T30 this round for no other reason, than to try a different pair of shoes

I can't say I have a lot of experiences with different tires but these seem to work well. I noticed a lot better grip in everyway with these over my old ones, riding in the rain felt the same as riding on dry pavement. I have found no fault with them and my bike seems a lot more capable since I switched over.

EPIC TIRE FOR YZF-R1 RAVEN
Hi, All. I ride a 2012 Yamaha YZF-R1 RAVEN.
I bought my bike with 0 miles. My first set of tires were the factory Qualifiers that lasted 4,300 miles. After that, I installed a set of Dunlop Q2's that lasted me 6,373 miles.That's a total mileage of 10,673. That mileage is when I installed the Pirelli Angel GTs. Today, my rear tire needs replaced. Guess what my mileage is... 19,882 miles. That REAR Pirelli Angel GT rear tire lasted me 9,209 miles!!
I've done long rides from TN to Kansas and back and from TN down to West Monroe, LA and back. I've had that bike since February 2013. Much of the riding has been done with my fiance on the back. She was on the back on that trip from TN to West Monroe.
I've had this tire in heavy rain at 100+ miles an hour, NEVER AN ISSUE. I've NEVER had a problem with this tire slipping. And it's got the highest mileage in any tire, I'd be wiling to bet. For as long as I ride sport bikes, this is the tire I will buy. hands down.
I think I can probably get another 1,000 miles out of the front before that one needs replaced. Usually I'll run the rubber flat but I'm doing a long ride to Kansas when I'm moving back here on the 20th of October. Right now, the wear bars are just flush with the rest of the tread which means the tire will no longer tread water. My big concern is getting caught in the rain now.
I've already placed my order for another rear. Thank you, Revzilla for supplying the best in equipment and having the very best customer service!!!

Most recommended tires on the market for a Monster, and for good reason. They give great life to an older bike.

Great sport upgrade from factory tires.
I recently put a set of these tires on my 2013 Triumph Thruxton. Replacing the original 100/18 fronts with 110/18, and the rear 130/17 with a 150/17. Currently I have 5,000 miles on them, and I must say that I'm very pleased. Performance is excellent, even with the wider rear on the factory 4.25" rim. Wear is as advertised. The original tires were done at about 5,600 miles. The Pirelli Angels should go 6,000+, no problem. When these wear out, I will replace them with another set of Angel GT's.

190/55ZR-17 A Spec on Triumph Trophy SE
The events that led up to needing a new tire on my Trophy SE would sound like a soap opera; but after some research I bought the Angel GT A Spec from Revzilla - and things started to turn around.
Before ordering, I called Motorcycle-Superstore and Revzilla. The MC-Superstore guy sounded like he wasn't sure what a motorcycle was, but he did tell me that they didn't have the Angel GT (regular or A Spec) in stock. The Revzilla guy sounded like he was a rider, and confirmed that they had several hundred in stock in several warehouses - including one in TX.
So, I purchased the tire online Monday morning, and the UPS guy dropped it off the next day around noon. I confirmed that it was the A spec, and was not damaged.
I've only been riding on this tire for a week; so I'm not sure what the wear-life will be. I can confirm, though, that the Angel GT is one STICKY tire. On my Trophy it feels better than the stock Angel ST; and I have caught myself digging in deeper when I go a round corners with confidence.
Overall, Revzilla helped make a bad situation better; and the Pirelli Angel GT A Spec is a great tire. Hopefully I won't need a new tire for a while; but if I do I'll buy from Revzilla and probably get another Angel GT.
