I've had two sets of Metzlers Z8's and a set of Dunlop RSII's, all less than 5000 miles. Then I swapped to the Perilli Angel GT's. I've had six sets and done more than 62,000 miles on them. Each set lasts longer and longer. Perilli are obviously improving as they go. My last pair had 15,000 miles. The current set were put on several weeks before doing a 6000 mile cross country trip. I spent several days riding on Alpine mountain roads before crossing the Australian desert centre on hundreds of miles of hot straight roads going home. I'm still on those same tyres a month after getting home and I won't look to replace them until after the monsoon season. Probably March? They'll have around 10,000-12,5000 miles by then. I have no issue with riding in rain periods that dump 26 inches in a week on them.
Stick your PR4's where the sun don't shine. I've been running 42/43 for most of those miles and I won't be changing in a hurry.
