Metzeler Roadtec Z8 Interact Sport Touring Rear Tire

One of Metzeler’s strongest tires when it comes to wet performance and mileage, the Roadtec Z8 Interact excels when it comes to long miles over ever changing road conditions. And because sport touring still demands some sportiness, the Roadtec Z8 Interact is comfortable and responsive in the corners.
  • Multi Zone Tension technology, new updated tread profiles and functional tread pattern place the Z8 Roadtec Interact at the top of the sport touring tire class
  • 8% wider final footprint area than its predecessor due to the variation of steel belt tensions and a strategically placed tread pattern which optimizes pressures in the footprint area
  • Innovative tread pattern, a widened and more elliptical footprint and a host of wear-resistant technologies not normally seen in motorcycle tires give the Roadtec Z8 Interact its best-in-segment mileage and optimal wet performance throughout the tires life
  • New patented tread pattern with strategically placed longitudinal central grooves provide ideal drainage for more than 3/4 of all lean angles in the wet. The remaining tread grooves work to add tread flexibility, extending the footprint for stability in the dry
  • Giving the best wet performance in the sport touring segment, Metzeler has pioneered Interact technology using M/O specifications to allow for variable tensions in the tire carcass. A higher tension in the center increases rolling resistance and mileage, while softer tension on either side allows for superb cornering grip in both wet and dry conditions
  • Updated design improves wear regularity which gives riders the benefit of a consistent riding performance across the tires entire life
  • (W)-rated for speeds of 168+ mph
  • Tubeless
  • Blackwall

    It works for me

    I ride a BMW R1200R. This is my second Z8. Even when the tire is worn, it performs well. My last one went for 8K. Great in rain and good feedback on technical roads.

    OK Tire BMW RT1200

    Tire is good, however, I got about 6K on the rear tire. I don't think it's worth the money for the mileage. It does have great performance though when it had tread.

    Very impressed

    Great tire in the Wet and dry. I commute on my BMW F800GT. I just got a service on my bike today and thought I might need new tires. I have had these on since new. I now have 16k on my bike and the dealer said I am at 60% tread. Im good for a bit. They are worth the money.

    Rt1200

    I've switched from Z6 to Z8 and love the tire in the Blue Ridge twisties in Georgia & NC. I get 11,000 consistently, but I keep a constant check on the air psi 38f & 42r single up no luggage. I ride moderately aggressive, not crotch rocket style. The tires do like to pick up bolts, screws and yes rode kill bones. With consistent inflation, the tires handle unbelievable and wear well. I have no reason to try any other tire. On my second set of Z8. Check your tire inflation every week regardless of the brand of tire before you ride.

    Best tire ever

    z6 on front z8 on the rear of a 1990 Honda CBR 1000F Hurricane. Love the Metzeler tires over Bridgestones.

    Sticky

    I ride my FZ1 here in Michigans UP as early and late in the year as I can these tires are pretty amazing in well below freezing temps and they even do alright on my gravel road. If I had any complaint it's that I only seem to get about 5 or 6 thousand miles out of the rear.

    I've been a Metzeler fan for many years, great tread life and superb handling qualities. You can't go wrong with a Metzeler tire.

    z8 rear

    I ride an FJR 1300 and have tried Metzeler Z6s and Z8s. The Z6s lasted 2,000 more miles than the Z8s. I'm a pretty aggressive rider so probably some extra wear but in my opinion the Z6s are still a much better tire than the Z8s. Would not buy another set of Z8s, went back to Z6s.

    Z8

    This is my second Z8 on a BMW R1150RT. It's one of the best overall tires I've ever used on the bike.

    Great tire

    I have used Metzeler Tires on a number of heavy touring motorcycles. Though the market has caught up in many ways...Metzeler leads the way in this segment. The Z8 Roadtec is not a universal tire you will find in every motorcycle store. Motorcycle Superstore always seems to have the size I need both front or rear for my K16000GTL. The tires inspire confidence in any riding situation and ESPECIALLY when I have the bike loaded to Max GVWR.

    fun tire

    I have a BMW K1600GTL, this bike is rough on tires because of its weight, but the handling is AWESOME with the Z8s, rolls through the corners like its whispering to me "next corner, let's get after it."

    I am back for more

    This will be my second Z8 rear tire and I am still working on the first Z8 front tire after 11,000 + miles of daily riding. I had switched from Dunlops on my SV6650 and took the Z8s for a nice, twisty ride. The feel of stability in curves was pronounced and they hug the road quite nicely. I will continue to enhance my bike with Metzeler.

    So far better than the Z6

    I always liked the feel of the Z6 on my R1200RT. The Z8 is better. I had stopped putting on the Metzelers because they would go from good to bald with little notice. The new tread pattern should be better. Only have 2K miles so can not rate for tread life. Good in the wet and Dry. Better feedback than the PR3.
