    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.

    Tire grips very well, looks good and the price was nice. I had a Dunlop before but like this better.

    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.

    VTX 1800

    I received the tire ahead of the scheduled time. I've ridden about 300 miles on it and noticed the difference already compared to the previous tire. I'm hoping to get better mileage than the Dunlop. Seems to corner great, the traction seems great and it feels very stable. My only drawback is that it seems a little pricey.

    ME880 best tires ever

    I run the ME880 front and rear on my Magna. Excellent grip and almost triple mileage over any other brand I have tried. I'm done trying other brands. I ride hard straight and in the curves, and this is the tire.

    Learned something

    Like the Metzelers. Have them on both bikes. I have found that if the first miles you put on them are on a warm day they seem to work better and last longer. Must be the way the compounds find their happy place... I'll be buying more.

    Metzler ME 880 Front

    Very long lasting tire. Not as plush a ride as a soft compound tire would be but you can't beat it for tire life.

    Great Tire

    The always reliable Metzeler. Replaced dry-rotting tires that otherwise had plenty of life left. The 880s provide a smooth ride with plenty of grip. Noticed the difference as soon as I left the cycle shop.
