Great tire! Tire handles great in all weather! Tread life is great so far. Very impressed October 13, 2014
great tires, confidence inspiring I ride a 2005 Road King. I have used Dunlops, Michelin Comando II's, and the ME 888's. Michelins lasted but had 0 wet traction. Dunlops did not last. The 888 rear I have now has 19k miles on it. Traction, once the tires are warmed up, is almost as good in the wet as on dry pavement and they warm up quickly. September 16, 2014
Awesome tires Great tires! The handling and response was very precise. August 11, 2014
Have had 880 Waited for this tire for my 2011 Road Glide for a few weeks. Got e-mail Monday it was finaly available in the 130/70/18 size ordered it late Tuesday got it yesterday morning had it mounted and balanced and put on bike after midnight. Put 100 miles on it today and WOW better than expected. Cant wait to due some long distance on this one. Thanks Revzilla for Quality service and Metzler for another quality product. July 19, 2014
So Far, So Good I bought this tire for my 2012 HD Ultra to replace its Dunlop OEM.front tire. I got 21.5K from the Dunlop, and am hoping to at least get that much from the ME888. Haven't riden in the rain, so can't comment on grip Only have 1500 mi on tire so far, so can't comment on tread life. I installed the tire myself, using the Harbor Freight tire changer and balanced it using Ride-On balancer/sealer. The Ride-On works well, and the tire meets expectations in smoothness, and road grip. Now, how many miles will it last? We'll see.... April 21, 2014
Can't say enough good things Bought these for my 2012 Road King Standard. I can't believe how tires can make such a difference in ride and handling. Amazing. So much better than the stock dunlops. Have only about 300 miles, so can't comment on tread life. But I don't care. the ride is soooooo much better than my old tires, overall mileage doesn't matter. And the handling is as improved as the ride. Couldn't do more to recommend them. March 25, 2014
Great looking tire I have only a few thousand miles on this tire. No issues, has performed very well. Good tread wear, even wear markings, and has held pressures consistanty over temp change. Will buy another. January 6, 2014
Best F**KING TIRE I was riding all night with my old lady on the back. Were bar hopping. At 2am jumped on the freeway , something didnt feel right. But we kept going. I kept wondering why the handling felt wrong. I dropped my old lady off at her sisters and had a hour left to ride home. Stopped at gas station. The tire had zero air in it. But it held us both up and got her home with NO air. Couldnt even tell it was flat by looking at it. The walls are so thick its a run flat tire. We must have hit a nail in Hollywood and the tire held up. Didnt kill us at over 70MPH on the freeway. Amazing tire. Trust your life on it and always check your air pressure! November 24, 2013

Pete M: I think they are a great handling tire so far. After 1000 miles I still do not notice any wear. I have a 2013 Harley electric glide ultra limited. This is a heavy bike and having a tire that is dependable is important to me. I ride 15000 miles a year and long life out of a tire is the next priority ofthe tire I choose. The 888's have so far met every chalange I have thought of. I hope this helps you make a dedecision. Feb 21, 2014

Tom M: Short answer is yes. It is always best to run matching tires front and back because of balance and ride handling. I'm running the 888 on the back tire and a Dunlap on the front, not by choice, but because of a road trip tire replacement. There isn't much difference between the 880 and the 888 that affects handling. Great tire! Feb 22, 2014

Matt S: According to Revzilla's video breakdown on the M888 tires, you can run the 880 with an 888 tire. I have 888's front and rear and love them. They grab really well and with the softer compound on the edges, they hold in the turns like butter.
Highly recommend them!!

A shopper asked: Hi...I currently have a 140/80H-17 tire on the front of my 2001 Honda Aero 1100...the ME 888 listing shows a 130/80B-17 as available...I understand the width is 10mm less than original....I'm thinking it will fit but just be about a 1/4 inch less in width.....just need confirmation that it will fit w/o problem and perhaps be a better steering tire than the wider original..?
thanks...Roy

Jerry S: Yes I have the ME888 tires on my Kawasaki and they are great. My opinion is this the tire is all it says it is however there is no competing with rubber on the road. I would always buy the better tire ME 888 but more rubber is better ie: surface to grab the road. I would prefer Metzeler make the proper width for the application with the better tire. Feb 19, 2014

A shopper asked: Has anyone tried these on a Goldwing GL1800? I'm getting ready for a 6000 mile plus trip mostly in the twisties. I like to ride the Wing like a Sport Tourer so handling is my most important criteria. Any experience or thoughts out there? Jul 20, 2014

Stacy E: I purchased a rear one for my Road King last year and love it. Grip is much better than Dunlop and handling is awesome. I just installed a new front so I would have matching tires, but haven't had a chance to ride yet. Jul 24, 2014

Santford R F: Don't know about the Goldwing but I have these on a Roadking and they are great for a long trip. I don't see why these will not work very well on you Goldwing.
