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

    Fantastic Tires

    I had a new set of these tires put on in Las Vegas. The Metzeler is far more confidence inspiring both in dry and wet situations. Great price, fast shipping as long as you are only in the states! I would definitely purchase another set of these Z 8's again.

    Z8 Rear Tires

    I put a set of Z8's on my R1200RT a couple months ago and have been very impressed with the tire. The Z8 inspires confidence, provides excellent stability and feedback, wet or dry. Have a little over 3000 miles on them so far and the wear seems good. We will see how long they last in the next few months. I have always preferred the predictability of Metzler tires over some other brands. No surprises EVER!

    Should Have Given 5 * on the Fronts, Too

    Although this may not be helpful to others, I like 'em. They are actually too new to comment intelligently, but so far, so good. Ride with matched pair front and rear at 40 pounds each. I am ancient enough not to push the bike over to 45 degrees when cornering; my reflexes won't handle although the R1150RA will handily. Will probably replace with the same when I need new ones. Until then it's into the wind!

    Metzeler Roadtec Z8 Interact Sport Touring

    Purchased the set Front & Rear. Motorcycle Superstore shipped to my Canton Michigan BMW dealer for installation appointment. Great tires all around so far.. I rated them at all 5's but really don't know about tread life or wet traction yet. Cornering is great. All reviews I've seen are positive.

    Great Tire

    They give a soft yet responsive and stable feel to the bike. The tread design itself minimizes cupping, usually something that makes me want to buy tires prematurely. I have over 7k miles on my front tire, and no sign of premature wear. They give me the confidence to take corners with greater glee. I really like the Z8's.

    Love these tires

    I put a pair of theses tires on my Aprilia Shiver. The original tire's were Dunlop's and they only lasted 3500 miles. I got almost 11,000 on the bike now with Metzeler tires , you do the math. I also had them on my Yamaha 700 and they lasted forever not to mention the grip on the road. Now I'm getting ready to put some on my FZ1. They are expensive but are worth 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.

    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.

    Superb Sport-Touring Performance Tire

    I have replaced the set of Dunlop OEM tires on my '06 Ninja 650R with Metzeler Z8's and the difference is quite noticeable. Stability has been improved greatly; great traction too. I've heard / read exceptional reviews about wet performance of this tire. As for the tread life, I have put just about 700 miles during last month and I can notice expected / optimal wear. I really do hope to get at least 6K out of these puppies.

    3rd set of Z8s

    Last month, I had the dealer tell me I easily had 2000 miles left on the rear tread, and within 1100 miles it was showing steel. I had to limp home, and cut a few hundred miles of riding off my trip. I learned my lesson - and will reshod my 1200RT every time I think it's close, but overall I think they're the best tire on the market, and they tolerate some fairly spirited mountain riding.

    Front and Rear 190/50 &120/70

    I wore out the OEM pilot road in 6015. I have 7100 on the Z8s, I'm about to the wear indicators, I'll probably see close to 8K. Both are wearing almost equaly, fine with me, since I like to mount matched sets. 99% of my miles are commuting, if I did more twistys (using more of the side tread instead of the center) I probably get over 10K miles. I like to get sporty occassionally on the weekends and I have had no issues of any kind from these tires. Pricey, but worth it if money is no issue

    Confidence inspiring

    Replaced an aging Metzler in preparation for a long road trip over all types of roads. The smoother ride was immediately noticeable. Great traction when dry or wet on asphalt, concrete, and dirt. Very confidence inspiring. A very very good tire that I would readily purchase again without hesitation. Great price - fast delivery!

    Yamaha R1

    Installed a set of Z8 early last summer, l'm not an aggressive driver so, for my style of driving, very satified. Put 15000km on the rear before changing for a new one(another Z8), still have the front tire on the bike, close to 20000km on it. I experience all kind of road surface, always stable, very pleased. Will install new one in the front as well!!!

    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."
