    overall excellent

    After about 2,000 miles the tire seems to be wearing very little, has good grip, and doesn't "track" like the Dunlop that it replaced.

    Metzeler 888 rear

    I have just under 1K on this rear 888 on my E Glide. Having been spoiled on Shinko's stickies on wet streets, this tire has dismal wet traction. I mean it's pucker time in the rain! It does handle well on dry streets however, and I anticipate a much longer tread life than the 4,500 miles I was getting from my Shinko's.

    Awesome Tire!

    I got a set of these 888's for my '01 Roadstar and immediately it felt like a different bike. The ride is smooth, the bike no longer drifts in cracks in the street and it corners amazingly at slow speeds/intersections; which had been an issue with the old tires on such a big bike. The price is right, and they are amazing tires, I highly recommend these!

    Metzeler 888

    I now have the 888's on the front and rear of my Road Glide. Got them because of high mileage ratings. Way too early to tell yet. Have not been on rain soaked roads yet either. So far, in dry weather they are nice and sticky. Motorcycle Superstore is GREAT! I emailed my order in late on a Sunday night. UPS delivered the tire Wednesday morning, awesome!

    Metzeler ME 880

    Outstanding tire, have been using Metzelers on my bikes since I made the switch in the late 80's. I will not even ride on the OEM tires off the showroom floor. My bikes leave on Metzelers, and stay on them for life. PERIOD!

    Best tire

    This tire is the best I've ever bought for my Harley. I ride hard and was only getting about 6k out of other tires. These go at least 10k.

    888 metz.

    This is a real loser. I have 460,000 miles on my bike, that's right...four hundred and sixty thousand miles on a Dyna. This tire is an 8,500 mile tire at best and its not even hot where I ride. There are better options out there.

    Metzler 888 LOW Mileage Tire

    2011 Voyager I previously had the Marathon 880 on the rear, pushed 8,600 out of it. Great tire, so-so mileage. Thought I would give the 888 a try so far I put 2,200 miles on it. Started with 8mm tread, now after a trip to TN I am down to 6mm, looks like they will not get any better mileage then the 880. Not overly excited about it. Front tire is a Metzler 880 I have 11,500 on it and should get 14,000. Disappointed.

    Great tire all the way around, have used several of these myself and also own a small bike repair shop and install on customers bikes as well. Motorcycle Superstore has the lowest prices online and the fastest shipping.

    metzeler 880 back, have the front

    This tire is traction for me. I ride all year, the only conditions that stop my commute is ice. I have rode my Honda Shadow, 2006 750 Aero, in any rain, any levels of frost, no problem. Even rode off the Ferry in Seattle, and rode on two inches of virgin road snow. I always buy these tires. Ordered this back tire from Motorcycle Superstore, on a Friday evening, had the tire at my front door Tuesday morning, came home from work, and had it on the bike by 8 o'clock.

    Great so far

    Tracks well, great turn initiation and cornering stability. Not enough miles to voice anything on mileage. I don't ride in rain so no word on wet handling either.

    Great price, quick delivery and rides well !

    I just bought my Honda VTX1300c a month ago, and it needed a new back tire before I could hit the road. My mechanic said it had to match the front tire! I needed it to be delivered to his shop on Monday, since I was riding to Daytona, from Atlanta on Wednesday! It arrived in time! I rode it 1400 miles and it handled great on the highway and back roads. Also, hit 2 days of rain on way home, and the traction was great! So far...very happy!!!
