I have the Parelli Angel GT2. Great in the rain and gets me more than 10,000 miles on my CBR500R. This is my 2nd set and I also have the angel GT. They are just as good.
Thank you for the replies fellas.First of all it depends on what characteristic you want form your tire, meaning do you want more rounded profile or more V profile? Do you want to have a plush ride, or do you prefer some more feedback from the road (softer vs. harder construction)?
In general tires with more silica percentage in the rubber mix will have better wet weather and cold weather performance and for this look at the sport touring category of any good brand. But you have to know what you want and do some research.
If you just want model recommendation, from what I read in the past the Michelin Pilot Road will give you the most consistent performance in the wet because of the thread shape, but do your own research.
Personally I have Pirelli Diablo Rosso III, but that is more sport oriented tire.
I always replace tires well before they're worn out, so a more affordable tire allows me to do that without feeling like I'm throwing money away on a more expensive set or encouraging me to get maximum wear to justify the cost.Thank you for the replies fellas.
The bike will be a commuter with emphasis on MPG and wet weather traction.
It won't be ridden hard.
I would agree with this based on my own research. Mine came with these tires and I wanted to know if they were any good. I was happy to learn how well they are rated for rain and mileage.Michelin Pilot road 5s are at the top of the list among other's.
