First couple hundred were shaky

Excellent tires after the first 200 miles. Great traction on dry ground. Took the new tires right for a big ride in the rain and did excellent. Highly recommended. We shall see about tire life.

Metzler ME 880 GL1800 Radial

I am very disappointed in the tread life of this tire, it is the first set I installed on a GL1800, have replaced several sets of Dunlop E-3's on GL1500's and have gotten far better tread wear, all were bias ply. I bought the ME880's to replace a set of bias ply Dunlop E-3's that were on my 06 GL1800 when I bought it, I ran those for about 12,000 miles and don't know how many miles were on them when I bought the bike. I have about 9,000 miles on these ME880's and the handling went away 5-600 miles ago, most of my riding has been 2 lane highways with some mixed interstate as needed, riding solo and approximately 3500 miles pulling lighter weight tent trailer Have to replace tires next spring, the bike is already parked for winter, will not buy Metzler ME-880's again.

This is my 1st pair of Metzeler ME 880. I have just under 1000 miles on them. I haven't rode in wet condition enough to get a good opinion. I think they are a super good tire so far.

2 failures

This tire, while providing great tread life and and otherwise pleasant riding experience, has failed twice in the same manner. In size 90/90 21, I have had 2 tires develop very large bubbles in the tire. And not just to one side, but across the entire tire in about a 7-8" length. First one I figured was a fluke, the second one left me stranded in Ft Worth. Will never trust or buy any Metzler's after these failures. I'd post pictures here if I could.

Metzeler 880

Good tire. 2007 Honda VTX 1300 Metzeler 880 on the front. Metzeler 888 on the on the rear. Just rode 750 miles on highway 101 nothern California to Tacoma, Washington. Two up and loaded to the max. These tires are very good, never slipped once in a corner. I would recommend this tire combination.

Fourth front tire on my bike, first time for Metzler. Superior tire for me, increased stability and connering, just point the bike and that is where it is going, I really can tell a difference!

I love these tires. They hold the road really well and last longer than the original tires that came with the bike.

Good tire

I've found that over the past 20 yrs or so my customers have enjoyed the long wear and superior handling with this tire. While they can be a little pricey in some instances the benefits as stated earlier more than make up for it.

880 metzeler review

This is my second Metzeler 880 purchase for my Honda VTX1300 (front tire) and I am pleased with the handling and performance. The tread life is not the best, but the value, handling and safety are there. I have a new 888 Metzeler on the back and it is Great also....hope the tread life is better.

Great tire

I was running both front and rear on Metzelers 880 marathon and always lasted 5 to 6 years. Last tire change they didnt have the front tire , so I went with a Dunlop 404D I think. Only lasted 3 years , tire tread was fine but the side walls were dry rotted so I had to replace. My rear tire was a metzeler installed the same day three years ago and is fine, not one side wall crack and the tread is holding up very well. Handling is great.
