Metzeler Roadtec Z8 Interact Rear Tires

The new Metzeler Roadtec Z8 Interact allows the rider to keep everything under control. The Road Tec Z8 follows the rider's instincts with a sublime blend of precise and effortless handing. The wet weather handling of motorcycle tires, and especially the braking performance in wet conditions, is becoming an increasingly important feature demanded by the sport-touring rider. This rider requirement occurs especially if it rains suddenly and a high level of security is needed. Metzeler designed the Z8 with the demands of modern sport riders in mind.


  • Multi Zone Tension technology, new updated tread profiles and functional tread pattern place the Z8 Roadtec Interact at the top of the sport touring tire class
  • M-Spec features a bi-compound design
  • O-Spec features a bi-compound design and a 2-ply carcass for heavy sport-touring bikes
  • 8% wider final footprint area than its predecessor due to the variation of steel belt tensions and a strategically placed tread pattern which optimizes pressures in the footprint area
  • 0° Steel Radial technology
  • MAW (Metzeler Advanced Winding) technology
  • The profile shape, inspired by the Greek letter "Pi", maximizes the flexibility of the profile, thus ensuring an optimum tire footprint under in all conditions
  • The 3-zone-tension Interact ™ Technology gives outstanding mileage and sporty cornering grip
  • FCM (Fine Carbon Mix) High Silica compound with Nano particles ensures performance and safety in all weather conditions
  • Innovative tread pattern, a widened and more elliptical footprint and a host of wear-resistant technologies not normally seen in motorcycle tires give the Roadtec Z8 Interact its best-in-segment mileage and optimal wet performance throughout the tires life
  • New patented tread pattern with strategically placed longitudinal central grooves provide ideal drainage for more than 3/4 of all lean angles in the wet. The remaining tread grooves work to add tread flexibility, extending the footprint for stability in the dry
  • Updated design improves wear regularity which gives riders the benefit of a consistent riding performance across the tires entire life
  • (W)-rated for speeds of 168+ mph

Metzeler Roadtec Z8 Interact Rear Tires 4.4 5 53 53
A great tire OEM tire on my ctx700 owned the bike now for 5 months and have put 7500 miles on these tires , great tire with great wet weather stability your mileage may vary but i would recommend this tire for anyone looking for a great all around tire. July 26, 2016
Good OEM tire, I think? These tires came stock on my 15' BMW R1200R. I loved the way the performed. However, I only got about 6100 miles on the rear tire and it's trashed. Front looks like it has some life left, but I want a new set of Michelin PR 4's so I'm replacing them both. I'm a fairly conservative rider but here in Arkansas we have a ton of twisty, fun roads to ride, and many of them are chip and seal pavement. I'm sure that combination contributed to the short life of these tires. It will be interesting to see how the next set compares. I can't say I strongly recommend the Z8's, but I had a blast with them while they lasted. If you have better pavement and straight roads it wouldn't surprise me if you were able to double the mileage I got. Hope this helps. FYI I think I road on wet roads one time and they did pretty well so my rating on wet traction is with little experience. April 25, 2016
Long lasting Came stock with my Honda CTX700 and got 11k on them. Had a some sort of rear blowout and the tires stayed on rim and allowed me to get off safety. Would by these tires again as I probably could have got a few more thousand on them if I did not catch something on the road. April 25, 2016
Fantastic tire. After mounting the tires on my 90 Katana I went for a 100 mile ride. Once the tires heated up they performed fantastic. My bike never handle so good. On my second ride with a passenger the bike was even better. Do your self a favor and get some for your bike. You won't regret it. June 8, 2016
This is a well engineered product I ordered this replacement tire for my BMW. This is a very well made safe and predictable tire. Three days after ordering it's at my door, great product fast shipping. May 31, 2016
Not good for my K1600GT This tire felt unstable and squirmy at highway speeds. I had to speed up to 80+ mph to get the planted feeling. Below that the front felt like it was unstable. I even had them re-balanced. I think their tread pattern causes them to track and I don't like that. I don't understand why they are raved about. I'm on my Beemer a lot so I switched them out to RoadSmart II's it's like being on a different motorcycle. March 9, 2016
Great street tire! This is a great street tire for a sport bike. It has great dry grip and wet also. I road these tires from Arkansas to Texas in poring rain and never skipped a beat. November 24, 2015
R1200RT Metzeler is the only brand of tires that have ever been on my BMWs for past 10 years. November 2, 2015
