New Pirelli tyre tread depth
« on: August 31, 2017, 09:49:53 AM »
Can anyone tell me what the tread depth of a new Pirelli Angel GT 120/70 front tyre is? From memory it was something like 4.5mm?

I've got 3mm left but have a trip of 3000 miles coming up.

I've had a reply from Pirelli UK, it's 4.9mm for the front Pirelli Angel GT 120/70 ZR17 (58W).

Weeel,

So I've used 1.9mm in 4070 miles. In theory (and from past history with changing them at 7500 miles when still legal at 1+mm) I could get ~8350 miles, which is comfortably over the total of 4400+~3000 I'll have done by the end of my trip.

But of course we all know how they square off and wear more rapidly to the end and there'll be more chance of a puncture........... :006:
