I'm going on my 3rd set. 1st set took a razor blade to the rear after about 1500 miles. Put another 1500 on it after that. Second rear I got a little over 5000 miles. They stick like glue on my concours 14. So sad they quit making this tire.

dont have enough miles to test out the longevity claims or performance in rain. I did however ride on supercorsas for the past decade and for over 26,000 miles in all weather types except on snow. I prefer the supercorsas still at this point because the handling wiht the angels feels sluggish and slow to react in comparison. The grip of the angels does feel secure and i see the tire being able to perform well where i live now. The supercorsas were unmatched on smooth pavement. but the bumpy, pot hole infested, and gravel dusted roads that inhabit the area i live now made them a liability. Review update pending several thousand miles and 2-3 years from now. 8/20/2019
Been riding on them about a month. So far so good. Feel better about riding on this tire due to its tougher build made for heavy bikes like mine. Fairly priced, look great.
Bought a 180/55r17 for the five and a half inch 1990-93 vfr 8 spoke wheel, so far so good
Nice tire: I bought this a month ago and am so happy that I did...
I came from two different Mich.Pilots type tires , even after warmed up when I would pull on second the front Tire would get about 2ft. Off the road and my back Tire would break loose and start walking my bike to the right. And with the Angel GT's ,when you put power to the ground their grabbing , longest I ever had a tires on my bike and they still look almost new. I'm buying them again.
I had a set of the Angle ST and they were great, 14000K and still going when I sold the bike, and they handled good.
I am riding a Kawasaki 650 Ninja now and replaced the stock tires with the Angle GT, big mistake, ruined the handling - with tire pressure at recommend 32 and 36 the rear tire felt flat and tame, with 32 and 40 it improved the lackluster tracking of the rear tire coming out of a turn but the lively switching of the stock tire is still gone. Might get you good mileage, but not worth the loss of handling on a sport bike. All the pro reviews are only interested in getting to do another review down the road.
I currently have a set of the angel 12th tires on my 2012 ZX-10R.
I've done one burn out and one full track day with them and they held up for 2 good years. Actually a little bit longer. I'm using my 10R more for traveling than anything else with a little bit of street racing. Rear tire haven't shown any wire yet but it's close to that. I'd say in about another 100 miles I should be able to see wire. I've gotten over 12 thousand miles on the rear. Front still looks pretty good but I'll change it out next year.
Most of the other tires I've had in her lasted about 15 months. I will say this though, it takes a little effort when you want to toss the bike in curve. Not a whole lot but more rider involvement is needed with them. Buying a set of the gt will save you cash on tires for sure. If you just ride normal, I bet you could get bout 3 in a half years out of them. I ride long distances all the time and they hold up nicely. Seems like it performs better though when the tire is wet.
Put the Angel GTs on my bike, and I swear to god I will never alter tires. They last, they stick, warm, cold, or wet asphalt doesn't matter. These tires will last you a long time and still give you excellent performance. I ride extremely hard and fast and have seen much better results from these than most other tire brands I have used in the past. Note the picture shows the Angel ST
i dont no what this other guy does but i've been to the tail of the dragon with these tires they do not warm up like the Q3 and the diablo supercorse SP V2 would i understand these tires are for long lasting but they will not get warm for ya when i stopped after a strong ride at the gap i grabbed my buddys Q3 and then mine i quickly started shopping again and next riding season i am getting Q3 or supercorse SP V2
