    My Road 5s after about 2500 - 3000 miles. This is them right after doing 40-50 laps of Laguna Seca, running in the faster end of B group, lap times at 1:55. Note that these are already way beyond the mileage I got from the S21 and they look practically brand new. Still loads and loads of tread left.

    wow, that's impressive!
    no issues with straight line traction/braking?

    the massive sipes look weird but.. much better tyre than Angel GT2?

    Zero issues with traction. Well, unless you count the ABS.

    I've never used Angel GT/GT2 so I have no opinion. All I can say is that in my experience the Road 5 is a fantastic all-around tyre with striking longevity.
