This tire was gone quick, the performance is great but not good for a cruiser or daily rider what a waste of money.

Poor choice for touring

July 12, 2012

I get between 7000 and 8000 miles out of Dunlop. Put 4600 miles on this tire and the tread pattern in center of tire is gone. Don't look like i"ll get much over 5000 miles. This was suppose to be a high mileage tire but it isn't. Maybe be good for cornering.

I wouldn't recommend this item to a friend.

Great tire for touring and cornering!

June 8, 2011

This is my 3rd tire in the last 10 years (1 regular wear, 1 to Sturgis and back, and one now for my new wheels). I always by Metz for the bike and always will. You just feel really glued to the road with these things! They're great!

Great Tires

January 22, 2011

I love the ME880s over the factory Dunlop choice on the Harley's. Mileage MAY not be as good, but the grip is far superior and worth any loss of mileage you may experience.

I would recommend this item to a friend.
