Awesome new Metzler 888!

Been using Metzlers for years now. I got a screw in my worn out Metzler rear tire, and found it holds its shape when flat! Wow. I went to order a new rear tire, and saw the new 888 Ultra High Mileage tire. Looks great, very deep tread, handles good so far. Looking forward to the best mileage on this rear tire, ever. Kudos to Metzler and Motorcycle Superstore! Fast shipping too ;-)

ME 880 marathon tire

Only purchasing my tires from Motorcycle Superstore because of the price and no hassle delivery, and only running the ME 880 on my flhstc because I ride a lot of miles and this tire really gets the job done. It's quiet, runs super smooth and gets me the most miles for the buck.

Only about 1000 miles so far and cannot tell about tread life. I have not been on wet pavement yet but expect traction to be excellent. Steel grid bridge decking stability is the best I have experienced. And with 75000 miles on this bike I have ridden over a lot of steel bridge decking. Very Fair pricing and Great customer service

Great tire!

Have been riding on Metzelers for many yrs and have always had good luck with tread life and stability. Just got the 888 a few thousand miles ago and so far like the grip and handling. Good wet traction also. I am usually hard on tires so I am curious to see what kind of mileage I get out of them.

Metzeler 888

My first Metzeler tire; so far no complaints. Rode to Red River, NM, Memorial weekend, and it ran great. Also my first purchase at Motorcycle Superstore, very happy with price and service and no shipping costs! You have a new customer.

Metzeler tires are awesome!

Just purchased this new ME 888 to replace my current rear ME 880 on my 09 FLHTC and got 20,660 miles on that rear tire. They just perform awesome and last a long, long time. I always get my Metzelers from Motorcycle-Superstore. They are the cheapest w/ delivery hands down.

Metzeler 888 Rear Tire-2012 Heritage Softail Classic

Great tire from a great retailer. Have bought other Metzelers in the past from the Superstore and was well pleased with both the customer service and the pricing. The 888 rides very well and I expect great mileage also. I've gotten over 10,000 miles from an 880 on my previous Sportster. Looking for the same or better with the 888.

Excellent tires! Just finished a 3 day ride after having them installed. Put on 1200 miles in both dry and rainy conditions in Montana, Idaho and Washington. I'm really impressed with the ride and handling in all weather conditions, and they ride extremely well.

This tire handles very well in rain as it seems like I get caught in the rain a lot this year. As far as wear it isn't as important to me as feeling safe on the bike. All in all Metzeler tires wear as good as any other quality tire & to me handle better. Great tire.

So far the tire is excellent. Can't really rate tread wear yet but handles great. No better prices than Motorcycle Superstore!

If I had known how much better these tires ride than the originals that came on my FLHTK I would have switched immediately, of course the 888s were not out back in 2010 but if they had been. Definitely the smoothest tires I have ever rode on.

Best Tire I've owned in 50 years

Now that I have about 4k miles on my 01 roadking, I can say this outlasts all the other metzlers, dunlops and avons I've tried. Holds great even on wet or dirt roads.
