My question to you would be, if you have something you know and trust, why change? Kind of an expensive test ride, when you know what you have with the AE IIs.
My choice has always been the American Elite. I got them when they first came out and i have put over 130,000 miles on my bike with them on. I get around 20k miles per set, always replace both at the same time, and keep on riding. The only tire issues I have run in to were due to nails.
I do not pay that much attention to cost, but I do look for the best price when I buy, usually online. Cost is secondary, getting the best tire is more important. I trust these tires because I have a long (mileage wise) history with them.
In theory, Theory and Reality are the same. In reality, they are different.
