Pirelli Angel GT Rear Tires

Pirelli débuted the new Angel GT Tires on Basque soil in Bilbao, Spain accompanying the newest edition of the Multistrada 1200 S Granturismo. The new Angel GT Sport Touring tire will be standard equipment on the latest version of the Borgo Panigale model.  

The Angel GT boasts 15 percent more mileage than the Pirelli Angel ST without sacrificing performance. Pirelli has labeled this as “Performance Mileage."  The primary design was to provide regular wear and excellent water drainage guaranteed by both the front tires and by the new groove design on the rear. Pirelli is using a dual blend compound that allows for high mileage in the center with a higher percentage of silica on the sides offering maximum performance, even in wet conditions. 

In the end, the Pirelli Angel GT is a great option for long distance riders with a fully loaded bike, or for those who are looking to optimize performance on their short daily getaways. From sport bikes to touring and everything in between the Angel GT will not disappoint.


  • (W)-rated for speeds of 168+ mph
  • Ideal for sport riders looking for increased mileage without sacrificing grip and traction
  • Extended Mileage Sport (EMS) tires provide best-in-class for mileage and grip
  • Rear tires feature new Bi-compound formula that improves cornering traction
  • "A Spec" rear tires feature a reinforced, 2-ply carcass
  • Improved wet grip
  • Tubeless

Amazing!! I bought this tire because a friend told me it was a good gripping tire and gets good mileage. I've had them on for almost a year and they are wearing great... March 21, 2015
tires are great, shipped/received fast I heard great things about the angels. I have been using pilot roads 3 and 4 but wanted something a lil stickier. I was told these were for me. Not many miles on them yet but they look good and they are stickier than the pilot roads. I guess my ratings above are based on what i have heard/read and what i am hoping to get out of them February 16, 2015
PIRELLI ANGEL GT tires I have purchased many different types of tires for my '05 Z 1000 Naked Ninja in the past. I could only get around 1100 to 1200 miles from the other brands, but the PIRELLI ANGEL GT lasted for about 3600 miles on my bike. That's just from pure torque, I do not spin or slide my tires. Thank you PIRELLI for making this gracious tire,and most of all THANK YOU REVZILLA for offering these wonderful pieces of rubber! January 27, 2015
Good replacement tire on a K1600 I replaced the stock Z8s with a pair of the Angel GTs. I went with the "A Spec" given the bike's weight. Turn-in is vastly improved over the Z8s, as is steady-state cornering. The big K-bike will never be a ballerina on a winding road, but the Angel GTs make it feel like it's lost a hundred pounds. I haven't been caught in a real frog-strangler yet, but in moderate rain the wet grip is again far superior to the Z8s. They get a little tricky on tar snakes and wet pavement marking paint, but most tires do. I've got a little over a thousand miles on them, and they seem to be wearing reasonably well, though they've picked up a bit of a harmonic just off the center of the tread. I've been vigilant about inflation, so that's a little troubling. Still and all, these are a great tire for one who tends to ride a bit aggressively on mountain roads. December 22, 2014
I guess I am tough on rear tires? I really liked the Scorpion Trails that came originally on my MTS1200 but was looking for something that would get me more tread life (I was only getting 3500 or so miles out of the Scorpion Trails). I put the non A-Spec version on my Multistrada 1200 about a 1000 miles before taking a 2500 mile trip to ride the incredible twisties in Arkansas expecting to have more than enough life in them for the return. Unfortunately I ran thru these during the trip and sweated riding to Duc shop in Dallas on almost all cords for the last hundred miles or so. Eek. But I am a bit throttle heavy and I am not a particularly small guy so I guess I just need to accept the fact that I won't get as many miles out of a rear tire as others claim. The grip on these is excellent and I wore these all the way out to the edge of the tire with complete confidence, much more than the PR3's I tried before the Angels. We haven't gotten a lot of rain in Texas so it is pretty tough to talk about the wet traction. At the Duc shop I put on another GT but this time the A-spec version and will see if it does a bit better for tread life. Also going to put the same tire on the back of the Tuono to see how it does on that bike. December 20, 2014
Nice tire for the money I've been running Michelin Pilot Road tires on my 2001 Suzuki Bandit 600, and the rears wear with a funny cupping pattern that makes me nervous. I thought I'd give the Angel GT a try. After 3000 miles, it looks about 1/2 worn out, but the wear pattern seems better. Seems to be grippier in the dry than the Pilot Roads. I don't ride in the rain much, mostly because it hardly ever rains in the Utah desert, so I can't provide much feedback on wet characteristics. So far, pleased with the smooth ride and the grip. December 11, 2014
great balance between performance and tread life I purchased these tires after my Diablo Corsa was showing cords. I commute on my bike 5 days a week the Diablo Corsa was incredibly sticky but very short lived. these tires are almost as good grip wise only feeling a little loose coming out of corners when hard on the throttle. If these Tires last as long as reviews indicate this is an amazing tire. December 1, 2014
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 October 21, 2014

Devin N: more longevity with the sportiness I need. Mar 26, 2015
Travis M: Gear Geek recommendation. Mar 24, 2015
Peter R: If I didn't buy new tires my local fellow riders may have lynched me. I had Angel GTs on my previous bike last summer before someone helpfully hit me and it was written off, and they were amazingly nice tires for the price. Mar 17, 2015

C S: positive reviews Feb 15, 2015
daniel z: great reviews. don't go to the track ever and only ride hard in the twisties about 10% of the time. try not to ride in the rain either but will prob get caught a couple times a year. these should be good for those situations. Feb 8, 2015
Raemone J: Best tires ever, last me a whole year and I ride everyday Jan 30, 2015
Donald Y: Riding a SV650k5, based on experience from BT-023, this tire should serve the purpose for 95% highway commute and 5% beginner trackday. I go to trackdays to get "speeding" out of my system and cornering without risk of cars or natural road debris - like they say, I'd rather spend $200 on a trackday than $350 on a speeding ticket.

aaron F: Talk about sticky :) enough said. Dec 12, 2014
Matthew N: Pirelli Angel GT tires have brought my Concours to life. I use the 55 series on the rear and it now turns in like a sport bike and holds the line with ease and confidence. On the road and on the track these tires wear very well and grip like crazy. After 3 rear tires now I have not had any uneven or odd wear patterns. I have had 2 fronts as well with even consistent wear through the entire life of the tread. I see no reason to consider using another brand or even model of tire on this bike. Nov 16, 2014
Italo D: I am an everyday rider, so I'm looking for performance, specially on wet conditions, and long lasting. I already have Michellin Pilot Road 3 installed and I didn't like the way the rubber went off, the tire shape is totally irregular and I don't trust it anymore Nov 13, 2014
Mike V: Ducati Monster 696 will only take Pirelli Angel tires according to MOM. Nov 12, 2014

A R: I have used Metzeler Z6, Dunlop Road Smart, Michelin PR3, and Pirelli Angel ST on my Sport Touring Motorcycle...the Pirelli Angel ST was by far the most consistent throughout its 6K Miles and always stable as the Rock of Gibraltar when hanging off in swervery. Based on my experience with the Pirelli Angel ST several of my Riding Buddies switched to Pirelli Angel GT and all were glad they did. Now it's my turn to ride on Pirelli Angel GT Tires!!!

Alfred L: Excellent tires! Great grip and great mileage Nov 20, 2013

Steven Y: I'm running the Pirelli Diablo's now and need a longer mileage tire since i do a lot of commuting during the week and hard canyon riding on the weekends. Sep 17, 2013
Pierce B: I have a mechanic friend who has given me priceless advice over the years, and has never steered me wrong. He recommended this tire above all others, for sport touring purposes. Also I have a friend with an R1 who had a Pirelli Angel ST for his rear tire, and he got nearly 10,000 miles out of it. If you want a combination of amazing grip and longevity, I'm convinced there is no better tire on the market. Aug 29, 2013

Marc H: I am not familiar with the term a spec tire, I can say the Angel GTs stick better than the Pilot Road 2 & 3. As I am still running my 1st set of Angel GTs I can not yet comment on their mileage life, but I am very satisfied with them. (I also do my own mounting on wheels, these were the stiffest sidewalls I have ever encountered in a bike tire, actually took 2 people to mount them on the wheel by hand Oct 4, 2013

Nathaniel K: From my understanding the A-spec has a stiffer sidewall for heavier bikes such at a R1200GS. I have a 2011 Multistrada with the standard tire. Just turned 6000 miles. Done everything from Deal's Gap to 30 some miles off pavement. Great sport tire, very good wet tire. I am also impressed with the mileage. I expect around 7000 miles. I will be replacing with another GT Oct 4, 2013

A shopper asked: Hi,

Looking to replace my stock Dunlop Roadsmart II on the Ninja ER6F. Confused between the Michelin Pilot Road 3 and the Angel GT.
I am more of a weekend canyon rider who also needs good mileage and grip from the tyres.
Which one is a better choice? Is there THAT big a difference between the GT and the PR3?

Erik O: Hello,

I was in the same place you are about 3 months ago before I purchased my Angel GTs. The Road 3s and Angel GTs are extremely similar and I was torn between which one was a better fit for me. Just like you, I pretty much only ride on the weekends up in the twisties. I've got a ZX-14, so I'm not leaning it down quite as far in the corners as my friends on 600-1000s, so I really didn't need a tire that was primary designed for cornering and track riding. Plus with the added weight of my ZX-14, I wanted a tire that would last longer than say the Q3 or Pilot Power 3s. Finally, I wanted something that if I did come across rain, would perform very well.

After doing copious amounts of research, I determined that the GTs were a better fit for me than the PR3s. Pirelli tested them not just on sport tourers, but also on super sports. The reviews from the super sport riders were incredibly positive. They all said they felt very confident with the GTs in all riding conditions. I also read some negative reviews about the PR3s' quality over the long term. I also didn't like the PR3's siping.

So, I got myself the GTs and could not be happier. I've ridden on dry and wet pavement. I've slabbed it just as much as I've tried to drag my knees in corners. These tires are simply amazing. They do everything and they do it well. I was both comfortable and confident in all riding conditions.

Now, that's not to say the PR3s are a bad tire. They are also great. However, they seem to be more geared towards the commuter and tourer only crowd. That said, I've got a friend who rides an R1 with PR3s. She loves them and both commutes on her R1 as well as takes it to the track.

Either way I think you will be happy. The PR3s and GTs are both great tires. I just think the GTs are geared more towards my style of riding and look a lot sexier than the PR3s. I've got to hand it to the Italians, everything they make is a work of art, even their tires, haha!

Benjamin D: I ride a 2001 FZ1 year around. I ride the canyon's hard in the summer and in the winter in temperatures down to the low 30's--rain or shine.

I have used Pilot Road 3's and Angel ST & GT's and find both very good. The Pilots may have a bit more mileage but are stiffer in the carcass (slightly harder ride). Grip and feel of the Pirelli's, however, are the best. Mileage is close to the Pilots depending on how I ride. Wet grip is unparalleled with the Angel's.

I have had good luck with Michelin's, Conti Road Attack's, and Avon Storm's,

However, I now use Pirelli's exclusively.

T. Mark K: Happy to respond. Bottom line up front: a really confidence inspiring tire, on a bike that eats tires. Revzilla' Mario took extra steps to make sure I got the brand new A specification, and had tires shipped quickly. I have a K1600 GT made by BMW. As such, I bought the A specification of the Angel GT for the rear. I have not used the PR3, but my friends who have tell me one critical complaint. Namely, the tire feels "like on a thin rail", and slightly unstable when moving at speed. For me, that would mean buying a tire that places unnecessary uncertainty on highway riding, especially when passing big vehicles. The tire is known for good milage and excellent wet traction. The K1600 came with Bridgestone Battlax 021, 190/55; OKAY, but a little scarey on tight radius . I am very price conscience, but the value is with the Angel. I rode 250 miles on the way back from dealer installation, in high cross wind and head wind weather. No lack of control was experienced. I even had to ride in 1/8 inch hail (although I did pull over eventually), and was able to control the bike to a safe location. Cornering and turn-in is where the tire really shines. My radius is really improved, and when I do slow practice sessions in parking lot, my minimum radius is twice as small while remaining in comfort zone, as compared with Bridgestones. My chicken strip should be much better(if you care about such things). I have not figured out the warm-up time for the tires; I've only had them one week. I love to throw the bike around now (in the most aggressive engine map), and I trust the tires. Obviously, I can not speak to mileage, so read other reviewers on Revzilla. Hope this helps you in your analysis. Oct 17, 2013

Cortney W: There is not a huge difference between the rp3 and the angel GT. I have had both and they are are my two favorite tires thus far. I am a pretty aggressive street rider on my fz6 2006 model. I ride every day year round in almost every weather condition. My personal opinion about the two tires that you are thinking about is to try the pirelli angel GT both of the listed tires grip about the same but I feel the pirelli turn in a little smoother and faster but not too fast like dunlops. I have found that the pirelli is the perfect mixture between Dunlop and Michelin as far as turn in goes. As far as as longevity goes I got right at 9000 miles on the set of Michelin with one hole that I plugged in rear. So far I have had the pirelli on for 2 months and over 2000 miles they have barely worn but beware the pirelli needs around 500 miles to really get grippy maybe even a 1000 whenever the gt on the tread disappears that's when the tire begins to grip well.... just to throw in the mileage of of the dunlop road smart 2 in case you consider it I got 7500 miles out of those ... all in all Michelin and and pirelli are great. I prefer either over the dunlops. My only only wreck was from the dunlops because of how they turn in you really have to learn the dunlops.. but I mainly wrecked because no one would carry my my tires to get them changed so I wore the new front around my waist up to the shop had it changed and the mix match in profiles where not a good mixture. I was going back up to do the same thing to the rear by caring it around my waist if I hadn't gotten hurt from the spill but oh well im better now and still ride Oct 17, 2013

James W: I going to answer as best I can. Have a o7 hayabusa I put almost 12 thousand miles on pilot power front and rear I ride aggressive but no burnouts I liked the pilot power for al condition riding especially heavy rain even heats up quick but I didn't like the funny wear pattern in the front tire called scalping I tried new front and rear tires both sets did same thing. bottom line rider ive had these tires since August 2013 about 4thousand mile still 3/4 tread fsmoot in turns and smooth at 185.

Randy B: I have both PR3 and Angel GT tires on different bikes. I like both of them just different on each bike. The PR3 are on a ST1300 and work great with about 8-9 K mileage. The Angel GT are on a Multistrada GT and are great! I get about 8 K on these. In my opinion the PR3 work better on a heavy bike. The Angel GT are great for knee dragging. Won't go wrong with either choice! Oct 18, 2013

A S: Not much difference. The Michelin PRoad 3 & 4, both are better suited for wet roads. I have 5,000+ miles on a set that are mounted on my Triumph Thruxton. Love them. Haven't ridden much in rain, but they gripped very well. The Angel GT's may have a slight advantage on fast curvy roads. Both are great tires. Sep 5, 2014

Dillon L: I would say the pirellis have better overall grip in the dry than the michelins. Michelin has the upper hand in the wet, both are good wearing tires and will last a while while maintaining their grip. So if youre more interested in canyon carving get the pirellis, if you need a true do it all get the michelins. Oct 18, 2013

Gerard G: The Angel GT is the best tire I have ever ridden on. Very grippy, good in the rain and I am getting "sport touring" mileage out of them (as good as PR3). The PR3 might have a slight advantage in heavy rain, but not in dry conditions. Either tire is a good choice, but I would go for the Pirelli. Oct 19, 2013

steve s: I don't have any info on the PR3, I have never tried them. The Angel GT's have worked good for me with my FJR 1300. They like to be ridden hard and I am getting good wear from them. I would consider both tyres very good with not really much difference between them IMO. Oct 17, 2013

Jason P: Not sure on the Pilot Road 3, had Pilot Powers before on the Triumph and wasn't impressed with the mileage. All I can say so far about the Angel GT's are that they're holding up well and the grip is pretty dang good for a Sport Tourer tire. Oct 17, 2013

BOB R: I have never ridden Michelin tires (riding since 1963). The tires I rode just prior to buying the Angel GT were Battlax 023. Compared to the 023 the Angel GT are much lighter in steering and have slightly more dry grip on my 2006 R1200RT. (I live in San diego and it rarely rains here, so don't have data on wet grip). I have just over 8000 miles on this set and am about ready to replace them. I will get another set of Angel GT. I like them better overall than the Battlax and the Dunlops I have ridden in the last 10 years. hope this helps Apr 16, 2014

A S: Ok thanks, pp3s are apparently great road tyres and good in the wet as well. Which one would have more grip on the road? Pp3s are meant to have 20% better durability to it's predecessor Apr 16, 2014
Jeremy O: I can't compare these to Michelin's Power 3s (never had them), but I can say these Angel GTs are fantastic tires -- loads of feedback at most temps without fading in the heat. They seem to wear slowly enough. And they're solid in in the rain. I ran them (pretty hard!) on a Ducati 900 SS and a Kawasaki Versys. I'll be buying them again for a Ninja 1000 once the stock buns are dead. I also happen to like angular look of the tread pattern ... happy shopping! Apr 16, 2014

A S: Watch the videos on both. Pilot Power tires will have a softer (Stickier) compound than the Pilot Road or Angel GT's. Angel's will have a slightly harder strip down the center, and soft sides. I have 5,000 miles on a set of Angel GT's, and they should well exceed 6,000 miles. Simply put... Pilot Power (more grip, shorter life). Angel GT's ( not as much grip, longer life). Sep 5, 2014

travis w asked: My bike recommended my old oem tires used a pressure of 36 front and 42 rear. Should I stick with these pressures for this tire as well? Jan 8, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Carlos V: Is up to you. I ran 39 lbs on my front tires with the OEM Dunlop's as well as the Pirelli Angel's and 42 lbs in the rear. My bike handles better with the over inflated tires. I commute 160 miles round trip and I don't bother to check my tire pressure every day but by adding a few pounds of pressure I never run under inflated. I usually check my tire pressure once every three weeks.

I got about 9,500 miles on my Dunlop's front tire and about 11,400 miles on my Pirelli Angel and I get my needs for speed met every time I jump on the saddle. On the rear I average about 11k but I ride with a passenger or a computer bag and I weight over 240 lbs.

Is a matter of preference, In my opinion I rather have a few additional pounds of air than viceversa.

I do the same thing with my car's tires and get the expected mileage every time. In addition to frequent tire rotation and balancing.

Let me know if additional information is needed.

Chris T: Tough question. I've always run 30 front, 30 rear on my bike, no matter which brand tire I'm running, based in the advice of my tech. My best advice is to call at least two dealerships in your state and ask the tech there what he thinks is best for your model bike. If you get conflicting advice call a few more til you have agreement along some lines. Tire pressure is super important, best to have the pros chime in if you can. I find most places are happy to tell you over the phone. Good luck! Jan 8, 2014

Robert A: I ride a 2011 Yamaha FJR. I have about 7500 miles on a set of Angel GTs.
I run 42 in the rear and it still looks pretty good. I ran 39 Psi in the front and it has started to cup so I went 40-411 Psi. Yamaha recommends 39/42

A shopper asked: Hi!!! I ride a 99 Gsxr750, I ride very often and now its time for tires. Im just beginning to turn sharply into turns and I need confidence inspiring tires. Now my question is should I go with a tire like this or should I go with Q3s or S20. I don't do track days just mostly highway and canyon runs? Apr 14, 2014

Erik O: The Q3s are very confidence inspiring, especially in corners. They are super sticky and will grip extremely well in warm/dry weather. However, if you ride often as you say, Q3s and other tires made for the track will wear very quickly, especially if you do a lot of highway riding. The reason for this is that these track tires are made out of a very soft material that has a lot of grip, but wears fast. Angel GTs on the other hand also have soft/grippy material, but it's located much further out on the edge of the tire. That way when you corner hard you have the grip that you need. The center of the Angel GT is made from a super durable compound that will give you much longer treadlife for your highway riding. Angel GTs also have outstanding performance in wet weather. So, if you don't go to the track often, ride a lot of miles, and most of those miles are on the highway, I think you will be very happy with the Angel GT. If you are going to corner hard in them, make sure to warm them up a bit first. They aren't as grippy when cold. I hear the new Michelin Road 4s are supposed to be pretty good to, but I don't know much about them. I hope that helps! Apr 14, 2014

Benjamin D: The Pirelli's should be fine if you are not doing track days. They are, of course, "sport touring" tires, good in the wet, great feedback, and forgiving. I have had some great canyon rides with nary a wiggle. You should have no problem getting 5-6k miles out of them, more if you are gentle.
If you are headed for the track, then a more appropriate tire will be important. you want grip if you are riding hard!

Karl J: Hi
The best answer I can give is to tell you how the tires have worked for me.
I really like these tires, they seem to warm up fast and have a lot of grip. I'm not sure about the other tires you mentioned. I have only run metzler m5 on my Moto Guzzi and the GT's are a better tire. Hope this helps. Ride safe Karl

Timothy D: I love the Pirellis on my GSX1250FA. I replaced a set of Bridgestones and I can really tell the difference. The Pirellis are stickier, seem to wear better, and I have more confidence when cornering. I have about 4000 miles on the Angel GTs, and when it's time to replace them I wouldn't hesitate to buy another set. Apr 14, 2014

Matthew F: Depends on your bike. I would recommend checking your owners manual. I know on my 600RR I run 42 in the rear and 36 in the front. Some may say it's high but I if the rear goes much lower it feels like the tires is flat when I lean into corners. Maybe that's just me but as I said. I'd start with your owners manual. Jun 16, 2014

Ian C: It's going to be different for different bikes. If you get in touch with Pirelli, they can give you a recommendation for your specific bike. Or, if your bike came with similar tires, use the bike manufacturer's recommendation as a starting point. Jun 16, 2014

A shopper asked: I have pilot road 3's on and am interested in the pirelli's but im trying to decide between pilot road 4's or the angel gt... anybody have some good advice to which is more preferable? My tires tend to get flat spots on the left side towards the end of there lives. i usually get around 4 to 5 thousand miles on the tires. I am very aggressive with my tires but do not do burnouts.

Joel S: I've never ridden Pilots so can't compare them with the Angels but I can say that I LOVE the Angel GT. I ride very aggressively and have complete confidence in the Angels in both wet and dry conditions. And they are fantastic in the wet! Very neutral handling, as expected based on the shape.

As to wear, I do commute so the harder center compound extends the mileage before "squaring off" due to highway time. Overall mileage on two sets I've gotten between 5K and 6K on a BMW R1100s with easily 2000 miles riding two up with my wife.

I know lots of people that love their Pilots and I'm curious but not enough to give up my Angels to find out.

Frank S: You will not get the mileage from the GT's that you did with the PR3's. The GT's stick like glue - much better than the PR3's, but you pay a premium for that stick. I used PR2's on my Multistrada and they were worn out at about the 5000 mile mark. I only get about 3500 miles out of the GT's. I have PR3's on my other bike (Sprint ST) and like the GT's better. I will not comment on how the PR3's stick in wet weather, as I try to avoid riding when it rains. My understanding is that the PR3's are best in that kind of weather.

And, by the way, I am also a very aggressive rider who is heavy, so no tires last that long for me!

A S: Not much difference. The Michelin PRoad 3 & 4, both are better suited for wet roads. I have 5,000+ miles on a set of Pirelli Angel GT's, that are mounted on my Triumph Thruxton. Love them. Tread wear is as advertised, and should exceed 6,000 miles. Haven't ridden much in rain, but when I did they gripped very well. The Angel GT's may have a slight advantage on dry, fast curvy roads. You couldn't go wrong with either one. Both are great tires. Sep 5, 2014

A shopper asked: I have a 2009 BMW K1300S, and haveing a hard time trying to decide if I need the (A) Spec version of this tire. The bike is not exactly light but neither is it a large bike. i've tried to find some some specs related to the (A) spec version from Pirelli but with no luck. All I know is the (A) spec version has stiffer side walls and is meant for "heavier bikes" but surprisingly they both have the same load index , there is no specific weight range recommend for either version. Has anyone bought this tire for the k1300s, and if so what version?. May 27, 2014

JOHN M: If you're not loaded up with sidebags and/or a passenger, stick with the regular version. If you're doing serious touring with a heavy load, get the A spec.
These tires are fantastic, by the way. I commute every day and get >8K miles out of a set and I just did a track day with them and they were great!

Ryan K asked: Now I think people have already kind of answered this question but just to make sure. I've got a Ducati 749. Now I don't do things like track days but I do ride a little aggressively on the road. My biggest problem is that I ride all the bloody time. Last year I clocked in at 6000 miles. Naturally my tires were smoked at the end of the season. What are your thoughts on putting Angel GT's on a bike like the 749? I'm sure i'll have enough grip for 99.999% of the time but not being an expert I'm wondering if anyone els has done it.

Thanks in advance.

Frank S: I use Angel GTs on my 13 Multistrada. They grip very well, but don't get the best tire life. I wear out the rear in about 3000 miles, but could probably do 1 front for every 2 rears. I prefer to replace tires as a pair....

If you are looking for mileage over stick, try the Michelin PR3 for PR4. They don't stick as well, but if you are outriding the PR's on the street, you are going way too fast.

By the way, I bought my Multi in May of 2013 and have over 10,000 miles on it and I put another 10,000 miles on my Sprint ST last year.. I spend more on tires than anything else....

Bob D: Well, I've used the Angels, and now the Angel GT's for a lot of years. On a Ducati S.S. and a Ducati ST3. Also on a ZX11. I use them front and back. One rear tire lasted 11,000 miles. I ride a lot and I ride hard. And I tour with my ST3 loaded down pretty heavy. This tire morphed from the Pirelli Strada's. Also a great tire. I've owned every brand of tire made. These are sticky and go the distance. When you own a lot of bikes at one time you need to use tires that do both. I think they're the best I've ever used in 40 years of riding. Bob from Michigan.

Charles F: I have a set of these on my KTM super duke. I feel they are more of a touring tire for bigger bikes. It significantly slowed down the steering of the bike due to the tire profile.
