Pirelli ST 6000 MI Report


RC79NC001

Recommended Posts

I just finished a 300 mi ride and the Pirelli STs that went on April 21,2020 now are over 6000 miles.

See that attached photos of the front and rear.

The front has wear bars visible but, it still feels pretty good.

The back...we’ll there are steel belts visible so that pretty much means they are done.

Note: The steel belts weren’t showing before I started that last ride.I’m not that crazy.

I’d rate these tires an A for performance and feel. An A+ for value...$215 for the set on Amazon .

Whoever mixed the compound for this set was spot on.

I know everyone raves about Angle GT and the Angel ST is the older generation.

I had previously enjoyed two consecutive sets of Metzeler Roadtec 1s. Also great but, about

$325 for a set.

Would I buy more Angle STs? Heck Yes. Especially at $215.

Mileage breakdown.

2.5% Gonzo 100+ mph foolishness

2.5% Slab/Interstate

25% Agressive Mountain/Technical Rides

70% Riding through the countryside at a 60-85% pace.

Air Pressure: Always checked before each ride for factory 36/42 cold psi.

I’ll take the bike in Tuesday to the shop and next some Metzeler Z6s are going on.

The VFR can do it all.

Interesting evaluation. The front looks good for that mileage.  Thanks for sharing.    Am I getting it correct, you rode 6,000 miles in 6 weeks?

I'd say the front was awesome all the way to the end. The rear might have started feeling a bit loose in some situations but, honestly

 

I knew the rear was closed to finished on the last two rides so I really didn't push it. This front/rear combo was awesome up

 

to 5000 mi.
