    Re: Pirelli Angel Gt or Michelin PR4??

    Had pr3s and now on angels. Found the pr3 fell into corners better and more enjoyable in general, though the GT had amazing grip. Still newish on the angels, great mileage from the pr3. Next Tyres will probably be pr3s again.

    Re: Pirelli Angel Gt or Michelin PR4??

    I've forgotten how many sets of the various Pilot Road series I've gone through (I want to say two sets of PR2's, one set PR3's, and one PR3 front/PR rear). They've all been fantastic with the exception of the Pilot Road 1 that came on the back of my FZ1, words can't describe how scary that tire was, but it was also five years old by the time I got the bike. My one niggle was tread life on the PR3's, the back wore out about 4k km before the previous PR2's and other sport touring tires. Apparently the PR4 fixed the tread life issue, so should be a solid tire.

    I have the Angel GT's on my FZ1 now, it's a great tire, can't comment about tire life as I only have 6k km on them. Also ran through a set of Metzeler Z8's, equally a great tire, and gave me the mileage I expect from a set of tires.

    Bottom line? They're all solid tires, you're not going to go wrong with either one. My vote would be for the Michelin for no valid reason other than I've always had good luck with them. Oh and the tread looks cool, can't forget that.
    '06 FZ6 - 115k km, sold but not forgotten
    '07 FZ1 - 60k km, just not the same as the '6

    Doesn't matter! Just get new rubber before spring! Those are 8 year old tires!
    Put my bike out on the highway
    feel that wind all in my face
    breathe some air that tastes like freedom
    let that be my saving grace
    I believe it's time for me to ride...

    There's no better feeling than having new tires. Congrats! I think you made a good decision with the PR4's

    Re: Pirelli Angel Gt or Michelin PR4??

    Ok need some insight on this.. After the motorcycle show today went to Cycle Gear and saw my 2 choices in tires next to each other.. I was surprised how much narrower the PR4 is than the Angel! Can anyone provide feedback on this?? Why is there such a dramatic difference in these 2 tires?? (BTW the Angel tread looks awesome in person) Also I already own the PR4's and are sitting in my office right now..

    Re: Pirelli Angel Gt or Michelin PR4??

    I live here in Missori to. Down on these river bottom twist my Michelin PR4's are amazing. I definitely suggest them. Love the grip in the corners with the added bonus of long life on the interstate.

    Thumbs up Re: Pirelli Angel Gt or Michelin PR4??

    after reading this thread, the temptation to go with PR4 GT overwhelming! I planned to get another Battlax. The current Battlax I have 12K miles on it. I could feel it little slippery while riding on that tire.

    I will get it change to PR4 $189.99 + tax + $55 labor = $261.xxxx for total cost of new tire

    I hope I can do 20K on the PR4 ....

    Re: Pirelli Angel Gt or Michelin PR4??

    I used PR2s front and rear once my stock tyres wore out and they were amazing. I used up two PR2s on my rear and I bought a PR3 as a replacement for my PR2 rear and it wasn't as good. Now my front and rears have both worn down again I've now got PR4 front and rear and IMHO there is not a better sport touring tyre for grip and longevity. I do a lot of motorway (read highway) riding and it's lasted well (it does eventually flatten off but that's cos nearly all my riding is in a straight line at 75mph). It's amazing! Better than the PR2 and definitely better than the PR3. You usually get the best deal for buying them online and taking them to a local tyre place for fitting.
    My fully modded 2008 FZ6 S2 Fazer with ABS is now for sale. Check the for sale section for an Ebay link.
