Metzeler Sportec M5 Interact Tires 4.8 5 35 35
ordered my 2nd set *that great* I ordered fronts and rear in april 2013, I just ordered my 2nd set with just at 4000miles on them. The rear began showing threads, but I did notice my air pressure was down to 25. If it weren't for the low pressure I would still be riding the first set. Front looks in great shape. Theses tires are great rain or shine. yamaha r6.... February 18, 2014
Awesome tire for the money Used this tire to replace the awesome (if you do track days) tires that came from the factory on my RSV4. Needless to say, I could see noticable treadwear within about a month on the OEM Metzler tires and after about 3-4 months I was able to start seeing wires. So far this downgrade Metzler tire has been great and I'll be using them from now on. October 28, 2013
Great grip and ride. I put 900 miles on a new set of there tires last week in the Texas Hill Country. Awesome grip and handling. Haven't had them in the rain yet but they do instill confidence in the corners. October 21, 2013
Great tires I did ride Deal's Gap with this tire loved great grip dry and wet October 21, 2013
High quality product. Ride safe in all conditions. High quality product. Ride safe in all conditions. September 9, 2013
Sweeet donut! First the shipping was fast, fast, fast. The tire breaks in fast and has tremendous grip. Really inspires confidence at extreme lean angles. Have not experienced rain yet, and can't yet speak to tread life as I only have a couple hundred miles on the tire and the mold seams haven't worn. The only thing that would improve things would be if Revzilla had a list of preferred installers. August 24, 2013
Great price on a great tire I have yet to really push this tire in the corners but I did put about 1000 miles on it in 2 days during a road trip from Atlanta to Indiana and back. The center section looks brand new still so this is great for those you daily your sport bike. I plan on breaking this in shortly in the mountains but so far I would buy this model again. June 3, 2013
Confidence inspiring! I love these tires. This is my second rear after 10,000 km on the first and the front looks like it has another 10K to go yet. These tires totally transfomred my bike from the stock dunlops. Wet traction is great, conering grip and stability are excellent, and the whole chicken-strip guage thing is pretty cool too. Highly recommended!! May 23, 2013

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Chris H: Aprilia RSV4 - used the K3 prior to this and didn't use them enough on the track. I'm switching to the M5. Apr 1, 2014
renaldo g: These tires had great reviews and let me tell you, they were spot on! Absolutely the best tire I have ever purchased. They warm up quickly and are still warm 10-15 minutes after riding. Worth every penny. Mar 2, 2014
A F: ordered last year was great tire at great price. Feb 18, 2014
Robert S: Wanted to have it ready when my rear wears out in the middle of the summer. Jan 14, 2014
Aaron H: Product reviews for this tire are very good, and I got a deal on a free front with the purchase of the rear. Dec 30, 2013
Daniel R: Best street tires with great cornering grip for the money. I've put 2000 hard miles on them and they have not flattened in the center or overly worn out. Great grip for a street tire. Nov 5, 2013
Joseph S: needed new tires and I like what other people had to say about the Metzeler m5. Sep 23, 2013

Aris V asked: Hi, I own a Honda CBR919RR (1999 model), so sizes are 130/70-16 & 180/55-17.
I have been looking at the Metzeler range for this bike and the only thing available is the M3 for the front and the M5 for the rear.
So my question here now is, how does this Metzeler combination stack up against the Bridgestone Battlax S20 in forms of ride feel and maximaum grip quality?
I don't commute, I ride the twisties on weekends and do 2-4 track days per year.

I currently have Pirelli Diablos on it (just plain Diablo, not rosso etc) and the compound is way too hard for good grip on the track, as the last couple of times on the track it actually got quite scary as the rear was stepping out under power out of the corners.

So, Metzeler M3/M5 combo or Bridgestone S20??

Jason D: The P Diablos are garbage. Use them for drawing lines on the road and smoke in the sky. Burn them up. My cousin had the same problem. I love my Metzelers, but unfortunately I don't ride that hard. They've been really great for my casual riding style. I had to tone down the take off because the difference in grip between them and my old tires was so big. I like to keep my front tire on the ground. My opinion is that the M3 and the M5 are great tires. I've had both, but never as a combo. Good luck man. Oct 20, 2013

JOSEPH L: Hi, I cannot speak for Bridgestones, but for Metzeler M3 Sportec I can. These tires are all I have ridden since I have owned my Honda VFR. They are excellent an choice, whether you are a commuter or weekend warrior. The materials used for the tire are designed to provide suberb grip and wear durability. As for the track, again I cannot speak for its performance. Your choice for tire type would obviously be governed by a tire designed specifically for the track, such as a softer tire. As for which brand, you can't go wrong with either. But, I know some riders who swear by Bridgestones for track use. Hope that helps. Oct 21, 2013

Maura M: I have not used the met let's on the track but they are very sticky and grip the road very well. Oct 20, 2013

A shopper asked: Additionally, all motorcycle tires are normally marked with three or four digit code on their sidewalls, which represent the date of manufacture (the first two digits are the week of the year, the last digit is the year of the decade it was manufacturered in).
Can you post thet too.
Thank you Revzilla Team

AliB: Thank you for your suggestion. We are currently looking into how we can provide more technical information on tires. It's very difficult for us to post all the information found on the side of each tire, since many ship directly from manufacturer and that specific information is not provided for each tire in an automated format.

jmoretti13: The J at the end denotes that it is an overseas sizing (sometimes found with BMW and others)...only order this tire size if your bike calls out for it, otherwise order the standard 120/70zr17. Mar 25, 2013

A shopper asked: My TZR uses a 17 inch front with OEM spec at 110 70 R17 and the rear at 140 60 R18. Is there a M5 available for both of these wheels?
Aug 12, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The Metzeler M5 are a sport oriented tire, and are not available in an 18 inch size. The only tire we currently offer in a 140/60-18 is the Shinko 006 Podium tire, and there is a matching front available in the 110/70-17 size as well. Aug 15, 2012
