    metzeler sportec m5 front tire

    This is the second one I bought. It is in my opinion the best all around sport tire. It gives excellent handling and it feels like it's gripping the road in a turn. Highly recommended!

    Metzeler M5.

    Unreal cornering ability. Warm up quickly and never any groove issues on freeway. Never been in the rain....this is SoCal. Excellent value!

    metzeler sportec m5 tires

    I put these tires on a ZRX1100 only put a few hundred miles dry weather riding. Good high speed stability, comfortable on twisty mountain roads at a decent clip. No track days yet. I'm very happy with these tires so far and would recommend them. Only rated them a 3 for wet traction & tread life because I haven't ridden in the wet or logged that many miles yet.

    Excellent tires

    I bought the M5 for my 2001 R1 to replace my Pirelli Diablo Rosas. These tires are the best I have ever sliced curves on. I ride Hwy #199 from the OR border to work in Crescent City-35 miles of bike killing rocks and curves. These tires WANT to lean into the turn and instill a level of confidence I have not known before. As an added plus, Grooved pavement is minimized. So far the wear is better than I expected due to the stickiness. I'll be buying another set when this set goes.

    Unreal Tires...

    I put two of these on my CBR125R because the stock tires nearly killed me 3 times in the rain. These tires are unbelievable. Wet weather traction is, literally, the same as dry. I can now ride in rainstorms with no concern about my safety - they are that good. Dry weather performance? There’s no need to slow for corners anymore. All of this adds up to incredible safety. It's not just that these tires turned my bike into a corner eating machine, it's that they are safe at under any conditions.

    Great tires

    It was my second day of breaking them in. I decided to do this in the Dolomites in Italy with a friend. It cornered awesome, I felt more than comfortable with these tires and it even thunder stormed and I was still able to do over 100mph in the rain and going through corners.

    M5 Front-S1000RR

    Good feedback, good feel when setting the front end. Mileage unknown, never get much with 51 miles of daily twisties on chip sealed roadway. I wear out sides with 50% center tread life remaining. I am lucky to get 2.5K on a set. Got 1974 miles on the last set of 016's. I have a back-up set of 016's but they will remain bagged, will certainly get another set of the M5's!

    I use the tire on a 2002 K1200 BMW trike. The tire doesn't last that long because it uses only the top of the tire for wear since you don't lean for steering.

    Very sticky

    Nice and sticky. I don't expect them to last a long time, but I'll trade sticky for longevity anytime. A slippery tire can get you killed.

    Best tires I've owned

    I went from riding Pilots to these and it’s a world of a difference. I don't think I'll be riding with any other tires. Great on corners wet or dry. No slip and slide shenanigans. In FL it rains while the sun shines so having great traction in the rain is a huge plus.

    Best tires I've had yet

    placed my order online it was very easy to do. Delivery was quick too. As far as the tires go I love them very light feel on my bike and very predictable, I was very confident I'm the corners. I ride a ZX-14 and my last tires were the shinkos 005 and they were nice to but these M5s are on a whole different level a real night and day difference. Like the saying goes you get what you pay for, and I couldn't be more happy.

    Review... The tires I bought Metezler M5 Sporttrack are an awesome tire. It sticks really well on cornering and wet pavement. I know I will not get the mileage out of it that you would with a hard compound tire but I know my "safety" comes first and being able to corner without worrying you may go down is great.
