    This tire handles better than any I've ever bought for my Honda. I ride hard and only got 2,500 miles out of a Dunlop I had on back. I've got about 1,500 miles on it and it looks like I put it on today. We will have to see how long it lasts.

    Love the 888s!

    I've had 5 Harleys in 25 years and always went with Dunlops until Harley #5. I tried the Triple Eights on my 13 Road King and I'm not going back! Traction is great, I feel much more confident when I get caught in the rain and I am getting a lot more mileage out of these tires as well! The rear tire got me 12,500 plus miles and the front I ran up to about 18,500 and it still had tread. I replaced it early because it was getting a little thin and I was prepping for a 2,100 mile adventure.

    Great price for a tire that handles and wears so well. Sure wish they would produce more sizes.

    Excellentg Tires

    This is my first set of Metzlers on my FLHT, heard good things on the 888. I put them on just prior to a cross country trip that totaled 15k km start to finish. Still have 6mm of tread on the rear. Front looks brand new still. My bike will never see another tire other than these. Great handling all around, did not get enough rain to judge them on that but I'm assuming at some point I'll get a chance to assess in wet weather.

    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.
