Indiana doesn't have much in the way of twisties, but even down south you should be able to get more than 4k miles out of them if you keep the pressures right.  I cupped a front Angel GT on my '07 but I am heavy on the front brakes and its heavier than my 5th gens.

that's what I am running right now. roughly 2000 miles and they are starting to flatten off from commuting on the highway with them. next week I should be able to test them in some good corners.

 I've got right around 4K on this set,  they will easily make it to 8k,  most of the time they last 10-11k where the rear goes first,  the front last a bit longer,  but I'll swap them all out at the same time.

Did I mention I like the tread design?  LOL I wonder how many get a tire because it looks good?

I didn't know tires could look good......

Rode with the brand new Angel GT's yesterday and they do ride softer than any Bstone I've had on.  They don't pick up every tiny micro-bump but do have good feedback.  Other than that, they handle like any other ST tire I've had.  They remind me of PR2's as far as handling.  Maybe very slightly better.  We shall see as to longevity.  New shoes always feel better anyway.

I put on a set of Bridgestone T30 Evos during the 2nd day of the NC trip and WOW.  I don't say that often.  Just Wow.

Never had so much confidence during hard riding.  Anything I could through at them was absorbed without complaints in perfectly predictable manner.

I cannot speak to the longevity, but they held up very well to 3 days of hard riding and look like they can carry me through another NC trip with ease.

 

Previous B-stone S21s melted away in 2-3 fun days on me.

T30 EVO's are being replaced by a new T31 tire starting early 2018

Glad you like them.  Stones have always gripped well for me and worn OK but, my gawd, they ride hard.  That has applied to any kind of Bstone for me to the point I'm finished with them.  I'm tired of being beaten up and am only going to adjust my suspension so much because of a hard riding tire.  NC is a great place to tire test and have fun.
