Thanks Matt, I think I be picking people’s brains on the wrinkles about doing this, I do have super abilities to cause things to go into meltdown where technology is concerned 😁

After two sets of Metzeller Sportec ME7 RR I decided to try the Angel GT2's. Well I have to say that they are the most confidence inspiring tyres I have ever used. The bike feels so right. It will be interesting to see what mileage I get from them.

I love the Angel Gts I have yet to try the 2s. I'll keep buying the originals until they are no longer available, there are some deals to be had on the originals. Glad you like the 2s.

Angel GT II As fitted today, at short notice - I didn't realise I was looking at only some of the Metz depth markers. Whoops.  :o

The outgoing Metzeler Roadtec 01s managed a creditable 7.7k miles with my delicate gorilla grip. They weren't as good as the older Angel GT A, but not much worse - probably just personal preference. They lasted an extra 500-1000 miles compared to the old Angels. However, the tread starting lifting a little on the front right side, which I've seen before on other tyres, but maybe not as pronounced as this:

I'll let you know how I get on with the GT IIs in a month or so.

Come back when it rains and tell us how you are getting on... :)

Ah, good reminder, Brian - thanks.
Taking into account Covid-19, I've only managed 4k miles on the Angel GT IIs since September.

Wear at 4k:
- front has 3mm
- rear has 2.7mm

Not sure what the depth was at the start (oops - should have measured the fresh tyre depth - maybe someone else could measue their fresh one?).
I reckon they're more than half used now, but maybe not that much. I'll be happy with 6k or more.

In terms of dry riding, they're wonderfully neutral - you roll into a conrer, the tyre does exactly what you expect.
And wet riding, of which I did a lot in Dec-> Mar whilst training, I've had no nasty surprises, and no whitelining (although it's a bit early to confirm that at 4k miles).

Basically, they're v good, as good as the original GTs. I'd be happy to buy either again.

Someone is even more bored than me and asked Pirelli.

4.9mm for a front.

Ah, excellent Matt, thanks.
I'll guess the rear is similar, then.

With my laser display calculator I estimate maximum life (of my particular tortured tyres) to be:
Front: 4k more = 8k overall
Rear: 3k more = 7k overall

Realistically, they'll get changed a little earlier, so we're looking at around 6.5 - 7k for the pair.

In the meantime I'll be breaking much harder, in order to get my money's worth from the front.  :o


My workings (for extra marks):

FRONT:
---------
4.9-3.0 = 1.9mm spent in 4k
So that's 2100 miles per mm

I have 2mm left to legal limit = another 4200 miles left on the front

REAR:
-------
4.9-2.7 = 2.2mm spent in 4k
So that's 1800 miles per mm

I have 1.7mm left to the legal limit = 3090 miles

I get through two rears for one front, roughly. I don't get anywhere near 4000 miles from a rear GT2. I made a note this time, so I'll know for sure.
