    Handle great - wish they lasted longer

    I run Metzeler ME880 110/90HB-19 front and ME880 200/70B-15 rear. I have had 8 rear tires and 5 front tires in 70K miles. Get about 8K on the rear and 12-13K on the front. I ride state roads, not much interstate. Even with the short tread life I continue to buy them because they handle so well.

    880 metzeler

    Replaced my Dunlops with 880 Metz- have a '95 Ultra. Better ride and handling. Back tires are smaller '95 to 2003. I went to a 140/90-16 on the rear and everything is much better! This is as wide a tire I could install without major changes. Very pleased- more rubber on the road. Better stopping performance, and less drag on cornering.

    Tire review

    Got caught in one of those big rain storms last week in Oklahoma (Middle of May 2015). Tire held the road perfectly. Never a slip.

    Metzeler tires

    Bought a pair of Metzeler's and couldn't be more pleased. No surprise, they're quality. However, the service from Motorcycle Superstore was just as surprising! Rapid delivery, great prices and the tires have recent manufacture date. Real pleasure to do business with this company. I have another bike I'll be buying tires for soon. Superstore has earned my repeat business! Thanks! Honda vtx 1800f and 1300c.

    Tire rating

    So far I love these tires. I used them on other bikes with great results. Double the mileage of other tires. Since Metzeler does not make a 190/60/17 I moved up to a 200/55/17 for my Stratoliner. It is working out great. I've only had it on the bike for 1000 miles now, but love it- I do have a Metzeler on the front too. These tires are working out very good so far. We'll see if I get more than 6,000 miles on these.

    Wouldn't buy any other tire than a Metzeler!

    Have never given me a problem. Have gotten more wear than Dunlop s or Shinko's - won't buy anything else anymore!

    I always, always buy Metzeler tires for all my cycles

    I've gotten up to 20,000 miles on various bikes when I shoe them with Metzeler 880's! Just wish the 888's came in more sizes!

    No issues with this tire

    I've been running the Metzler ME 880s since 2005 after the Dunlop D404s I had been using lost chunks of tread while in the middle of the NV desert. The Metzlers provide good life and great traction. I don't do a lot of wet weather riding, but am confident to do so if it has to happen. Their pricing seems consistent with other similar tires and I have had no reason to choose another brand.

    Metzeler ME880

    This is the 2nd Metzeler front tire I have purchased for my VTX. The first one had an issue with shaking and vibration at low speeds. I replaced it with the same tire. This tire is doing well and I like the Metzeler tires. I just got one bad tire.
