I was not aware Road5's had stiff sidewalls... as stiff as a Bridgestone?  Interesting.... How was the ride with the T31's when you had them?
Fairly good smooth even on ruff roads gave better feed back than the r5 ,looked at all the r5 reviews looked good and being a premium tyre thought they would be good

I'm trying to decide between the Road 5 and the Pirelli Angel GT 2 for then my back tyre needs replacement.

I've used the GT 2 on another bike before and they are just great, both in dry and wet. Unline the T31, that make me think like I'm riding in butter when raining  :008:

My next set is the Angel GT's.... if Road5 feels a tad squirmy, then it's the softer sidewalls/low pressures.  PR4 same, I've had a few on various bikes, but I kept the pressures up.

Experience is a great teacher, she gives you the tests first and the lessons later.
