Running Angel ST's. No problems to report.
Third set of PR2's on my C14. The least I've gotten out of PR2 rears is about 15,000 miles. The fronts go about 20,000.
All conditions riding.
The next set will probably be Michelin PR3.
The Angel ST performed great on a ride through WV. Tail of the Dragon is next. Very solid in the corners. Bike- VFR800.
Not to hijack the thread, but did you use the PR2's before going to the 3's?
If so how do they compare in your opinion. I currently have the PR2's on my FJR and really like them but at some point this summer I will need to replace them.
Road attacks are my goto tire for sport touring I got about 16K miles out of a rear tire when i had my Triumph TT600.
9k out of a 180/55 BT-023. loved this tire. did not flatten in the center. excellent grip at the edge.
4k so far from pirelli angels. rear is developing a flat stripe in the middle. lots of highway? skip this one.
I agree i have used Road Attacks and have gotten 6000 miles and still going, held up great and no problems once so ever on a FZ1.
My bike is Honda CBR1000F. Lots of different results from the same tires. The best I can decifer from the comments is that the Pilot Road 2's or the BT-023 for long life and little center flattening on mostly interstate travel. I wonder what the Wingers do for tires? No twisties going there.
Yes I went thru 2 sets of them. Get the 3 they arer better. I got 11000. Miles out of each set of 2 s
Go with Michelin Pilot Road 3.
I had PR2 and they were fine (10500 km with lot of highway ride).
Then I tried Pirelli Angel ST, no good in rain, they lasted only 6000 km.
Now I have PR3, very happy, rode 2000 km in every condition (snow, rain, highway, sun up to 30°C). Fine tyres.
Thanks for the feedback on the PR3's. I like the PR2's and was hoping Michelin didn't screw up a good thing with the 3's.
I'm currently running PR3's on my Aprilia, but with less than 200 miles, I can't say too much about them. Handling at this stage feels about like the PR2's,
but I'll need a few hundred more miles before I make up my mind. I can't say they perform any better at this point however.
I've run 2 sets of PR2's on my Sprint and one set on the Falco. I ride all twisties and get less than 5k miles from the rear, but this has been true of any
tire I run. Rough road surface, my riding style, and 34f / 36r tire pressures are contributing factors. I get less miles with PP2CT's.
The first day of scrubbing in the tires ... A thankless task, but someone's got to do it ...... Unique "siping" to be sure.
I am on my 3rd set of PR2's on my ST1300. We average about 8500-9500 miles on the back before I changed both the front and back. The front could go another 1000-2000 miles, just not worth the hassle of making two trips to have them changed.
This is riding 99% two-up and fully loaded miles. It used for touring, so a lot of hightway miles on them. No complaints on any of them.
I have PR2's on my bandit 1250 and like them pretty well too.
I'm a little leery of the PR3's because I haven't seen any high temp reviews yet. With all those sipes, the tread blocks kind of have to move around a bit when it's hot. I've read that they're the cat's ass in the rain though.
I'm trying to decide between PR2's and PP2CT's for my Guzzi 1200 Sport.
PP2CT's have same center as PP's but the PP2CT's have a softer edge
Angel ST on the Tuono
PR2 on the C14
Pilot Power 2CT's have the same center as Pilot Power's? I thought the center was harder on the PP2CT's?
Many people make that mistake.
They think the dual compound on the PP 2CT is for tire life.
Nope. Its for enhanced traction at max lean.
The centre is the same as regular PP, and the rubber at the edges is 20% softer. Same deal for Pilot Pure, but much larger area with the softer compound.....and lighter carcass.
What bike? How much of a load? What sort of temp ranges? Wet? All makes a big diff on what's best for you.
For my uses I like the Avons a lot. They definitely stick better in the cold and wet than PR2s and seem to wear a bit longer as well.
Exactly. The PR and PR2 are the tires that use dual compounds for longer tire life without sacrificing traction at lean angles.
