It's a tire!

August 14, 2013

Just put the thing on my Honda VTX1300R, no idea what mileage I will get. Better handling than than the totally bald Dunlop I took off. Is it a better tire? of corse it has tread on it! :-) I got 9000 front and 10,000 back on the original Dunlops that came with the bike. I will will tell you what I get on the Metzlers when I swap them out. Wish motorcycle tire's would last longer, two changes a year gets a bet expensive for someone on a fixed income! Of course Dennis Kirk rocks!

Got over 16K and more life left

May 8, 2013

This tire not only has lasted twice the miles of the stock Dunlap or the Conti I put on after the stock tire wore out, the bike handles better. It is more predictable, doesn't track the grooves as much and is more comfortable leaned over hard. I should get about 22~24K miles out of this one. Go to the Metlzer site and get the recommend tire pressure and you will get the life from the tire. My VStar1100 uses 40PSI front and 46 PSI on the rear

Metzeler ME 880

May 26, 2012

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.

Excellent

May 15, 2012

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!

great tire

August 31, 2011

This is a great tire. Its somewhat higher than some others, but I'm getting over 8K miles on my '05 V-max. Performance is great, it stops very well handles hard acceleration very well, corners great and performs adequately if you get caught in the rain. Considering how well it lasts one of the better tire values out there.
