Amazing grip
This is the same review I wrote for the front M5. But let me say, this tire is absolutely fantastic. It really makes the M3 seem antique, and the M3 is a really good tire.

I have been a long time M3 lover on my RC51, but now that I do more track days and less commuting on it, I have gotten to the point that I needed more grip. The M5's are without a doubt the right choice. I ran them for the first time ever at two back to back track days at Infineon. I am an A group rider, and had no problem running very similar times to guys on slicks. There is always somebody faster out there, but these tires can take you deep into the fun zone. Outstanding tire, great wear, tremendously predictable, and tenacious grip. Just for info, I ran 28 PSI rear 31 PSI front at Infineon with ambient temp ~72 degrees.

Love These Tires!!
This is my second set of Metz M5's . I have always liked Metzeler tires for all my different bikes. I've had M3's in past, now I swear by M5's. I don't drag my knee around 24/7, but I do get pretty good aggressive angles with them. My deal is I mostly commute daily, although I hit the curves pretty hard, and twisties on weekends. The M5 rear gets awesome mileage for commuting without loss of traction. I currently ride an R-1, put 4,800 miles on my last M5 rear and only replaced b/c I got nail in it. Did have flat middle wear, but not as bad as other brands. M5 interact has very responsive feel and give me great confidence. Just took my new set in heavy rain for 1st time, and they rocked, I've never felt this good of traction on soaked roads!! I had these M5's in both 180/55 and 190/50 and like both. Metzeler does not get enough proper respect.... Awesome tires...will be buying again and again!!!
