Pirelli Angle GT
« on: February 14, 2017, 04:47:27 pm »
Hello
       Will be needing new tyres soon and fancy giving these a go, I have a k13r and I like hooning around on twisty A and B roads I don't go much for motorways and do go away on her but I'm not a committed touring type I also come in at 11 stone with my riding kit on (wet) so..... will the standard GT's be ok or do I need the one's for heavy bikes? I'm a bit bewildered by the choices if I m being honest or if anyone can point me in the right direction of someone who works for Pirelli etc who can advise I would appreciate it,


Thanks.......Ady

I'd say you will be best suited to the standard tyre as opposed to the (A) rated tyre which has stiffer side walls.

I was told that I needed type A for my K1300S. I'm on my second set.

I previously used PR3s but found that Pirelli Angel GTs kept their profile better and lasted longer.
As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everybody is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.

Correct. It's 'A' you need.
It's the bike that's heavy, not the rider.

You'll find Angels are pretty good. Far better <than> this rider.

It's tyre time shortly and after 2 sets of Metzeler Roadtec thingies I'm going to try these Angels this time I reckon.  Before those I was on PR3 and PR4 for however long. Fun!

Oooo - good value, even if you added £20 per tyre for fitting. (I'm assuming they're not fitted, right?)
Where from, Tom?
