    Great tires.

    I like these Metzeler tires. I tried the Michelins, but the tread life is less than the Metzeler. I'll be sticking with these for a while now.

    HOPEFUL FOR MORE MILES

    Replaced the ME880 Metzeler rear tire with the ME888 on my 2011 Triumph Speedmaster. Have to say I'm impressed with these tires. Got 15,000 miles on the rear one before the wear indicators finally showed up. Front tire still has some miles to go. They say the 888 will get higher mileage than the old 880. Hope that's true. Looking for even more miles out of this one.

    Dangerous Tire

    I bought a set of the 880's a year ago and installed them on my FLHTCI. It is now a year and 5,700 miles later. I am picky about tire inflation, and store the bike on a center lift. During spring mechanical prep we found cupping on the rear tire. Then found entire tread blocks separating from the core, Upon further examination basically the entire center strip of the tread was releasing from the center of the tire. I will never buy these tires again.

    Love Metzler

    I am changing from the ME880 to the ME888 on the rear of my Ultra Classic. I got 15,000 out of the ME880, so expecting maybe a little more from the 888. And I pull a trailer quite a bit. Put the ME888 on the front a while back and so far very satisfied. Does not follow the grooves in the road. Works great on wet rainy roads.

    Second one. Got 15K out of the last one. Handles great. Run 888 on the front and rear. Get them you won't regret it.

    Only had it for a month so the biggest thing I have noticed with this tire is the solid traction on corners and the smooth ride. Don't know about the wet traction and tread life yet but from the other reviews it seem it will be a good tire.

    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.
