PR4's or Angel GTs
From my experience PR4's are better in the wet and Angel GTs last longer.
I'm gonna try those new Michelin road 5 tyres, I'll let you know what they are like but it'll be a few months yet.
People here are loving the PR5's, personally the tread pattern looks a bit too big for me but everyone raves about them
I'm thinking about trying the PR5s when it's time for a change but I can get Roadtec 01s cheapish so may end up giving those a try.
My rear roadtec 01 is going well, it's only a couple of hundred miles old but I've not had any slides or movement, seems very good in the wet.
Oooo didn’t know the 5s we’re out. Going to have to check them out.
I'm tempted as well as I have about 1mm from wear bar on the rear on my PR4
I've used several sets of pilot road 2s in the past, fantastic tyres. 8k miles and 2 novice track days on a rear on my old 7r. (They were showing white through the rubber though)
When my current 7r and Deauville need new tyres they will getting some more roads, likely 4 or 5s.
GT's stick well in the dry, not as good as something softer like the 2CT's. But for an average rider they should be plenty.
Road 5's fitted - actually turned out not that much more expensive then the pilot road 4's.
I've ridden all of about 1 mile them so far, so not yet in a position to comment, will update this thread again when I get some more miles under my belt.
Was gonna go PR5's for my next tyre change but today I got a nail in my rear a 4 days before pay day so going with the cheaper Bridgestone bt023 option.
I've done about 50 miles on these road 5's so far, damn they are nice, bike feels so planted, especially on the slower stuff, bike just feels so much more balanced.
I used to like the BT-023's but would never go back after using these, be interesting to see how they wear.
Trust me they will grip better than the current Dunlop D214 Sportmax. I had 021's on my previous bike and they were excellent.
My mate uses them on his trackbike, he loves them.
I'm sure that's the ones by just looking at the tread pattern. Could be D212 though, I'm not sure about that last digit.
Perfect for fast road riding in the dry or trackdays but utterly useless for commuting year round. My go to year round tyres are either Bridgestone bt023's or PR4 but I couldn't afford the pr4/5 this time so went for 23's front and rear fitted £190.
These Michelin Roads 5's are great. As the weather is nice and the road temperatures are up I got a chance to really push them today.
