Angel GT II

Need new tires for my 2016 K1600GT. Currently running Angel GT's. Have heard good and bad about the Angel GT II's. Trying to decided whether to give them a shot or try something else.

Many forum members, including me, are running the Dunlop Roadsmart IIIs and are quite happy with them.

Moshe Levy just posted a review of them, here on the forum, the other day: https://www.k1600forum.com/forum/bmw...vity-test.html

I am on my 3rd set of Angel GT A Specs. The most I got out of the front was 7500 miles when I got a flat, and said time for a new set of skins. I thought of trying the RS III's but every time I get into a ride with the A specs, it works very well for me.

I thought they stopped making the Angel GT A Specs.

Tried the GT II A spec and have about 6k on the set, very happy. They are better than the originals for sure which says a lot. I'll be using them again.

What about on the highway? Some said the front tires were unstable on the highway.

I also have a set of GT II A specs on my GA. I've put about 6.5k miles on them. Wear and handling are excellent. The only downside that I experience is that they are very noisy tires. Noisy to the point of thinking I had a bad wheel bearing.

I use to get that noise on my Roadglide too. It seems as the tires wear they make that noise. Mine would start making that noise as soon as I leaned off center. Every so often I will lift the front and see if there is any unusual dragging or roughness.
