Metzler M880 Rear Tire
These are the best tires ever! I'm on my 3rd set and wouldn't buy any other brand. With these tires on my VTX1300R, my ride is very smooth I can't even detect uneven pavement when riding over it. Will buy these tires again and Dennis Kirk had the best price so far that I've seen. The tires arrived at my door, each, in a box of their own.

Excellent
This is my second set of Metzeler 880. The first set is still on my VTX 1300 S and have 8800 miles on them, and still have 1/3 tread left! I expect to get at least 10,000 miles before I have to replace them this fall. The tires on the bike from the factory only lasted around 7,000 miles. I would highly recomend the Metzeler!

Very Fast Delivery
The Metzeler Rear ME 880 170/80HB-15 Blackwall Tire was purchased for my 2007 Silverado 1100 V-Star. The price, quality and delivery was exceptional. I will be purchasing other items in the future and I do recommend Dennis Kirk to all my friends.

Very satisfied
Had this tire mounted on My Honda VTX. Longer wear than the factory-stock tire. I liked the handling and the ride, despite it being a harder rubber than the Dunlop.

Metzeler ME 880
I purchased a set of Metzeler tires for my VTX 1300R at the recomendation of my friend. I have not regreted the purchase. The tires handled great in turns, I have experienced no slips, even in the heavy rains we get here in the deep south. I am ordering a new set today. The set I'm replacing has 15,220 miles on the front and rear tires. No complaints.

good upgrade
Four thousand miles and more than half the tread left.
Only got about six thousand out of my O.E.M. tires on my 2007 Shadow Spirit. Never have I felt insecure cornering and in fact run 5-15 m.p.h. faster through same corners vs. O.E.M. tires. Minimal experience in wet living in the southwest but will definately buy Metzlers again.
