Some of the best level of grip on both wet and dry conditions I ever felt'
Metzeler Sportec M5 Interact was perfect feeling soon as I put them on. High steel tension/low compound flexibility in the crown center area, was very impressive. feels like you are on a steel rail. Five tension zones I could lean it all the way over on my first ride and felt no sliding at all. Very high level of confidence and control while leaning with the best progressive feedback I have ever felt. From what I have read not much different from the M3, you get more millage that could save you some money. One thing I am very smooth with inputs, so I cant tell you if you like to tear tires up and test for over heating. No answer here. I can tell you after over 1 million miles, these tires are some of the best I ever felt on a superbike. Mine is a 2006 GSXR750 with 2200 miles on it.

STICKY.
Right out the box, the tire just looks good. Being an artist I appreciated the tiny illustrations on the tire, I thought it looked very cool. During the first couple of miles, during the break-in period I leaned into a quick sharp corner (accidentally forgetting about the break-in period) and the tire did not slip! These tires are very sticky. I've only ridden about 420miles on them so I can't really comment about the tread life. Rain or shine this tire has not slipped on me once so far, I would definitely consider these tires again when the time comes for replacing.

Metzeler Sportec M5 Interact Tires
I have @ 500 miles on these tires. Previously I was running on Metzeler Z6 and now I can say that I am much confident in riding my bike; Good grip in wet condition and they perform excellent on NYC's roads. My cornering speed improved since I have this tires on...I already passed the corny no.5 lean indicator and now I'm going after the elephant(don’t laugh at my chicken strips, I'm waiting for the dry season to take down the elephant) :D<br>Also they warm up pretty fast; and hold up good while breaking hard (w ABS).<br>I'm really happy with my purchase.<br>Thank you Revzilla for your excellent customer service.

excellent combination for grip and mileage.
These tires replaced a set of Dunlop Q3s. The M5 is grippy enough for my riding style on my Yamaha FZ1 and is very very good in the rain. I live and ride in the northwest and there are very twisty roads along with tons of rain. I love the feel of these tires when its wet. The wet weather performance is remarkable and gives a lot of confidence. The dry weather performance is also very good and a lot of fun when using the 5 grades of cornering marked on the tread, then chase the elephant on the edge. When compared to the Q3s the M5s feel a little slower side to side when transitioning thru a fast S curve(s) of road or track and lacks the Q3s ultimate grip.The tires are an excellent compromise for mileage and grip. So far I have 3000 miles on them and there is still have life left! I'm guessing a few thousand more miles. Highly recommended!

One of the Best!
This is one of the best tires I have ever had! After owning a Metzeler Sportec M3 and loving it (aside from the horrible tread life), i decided to try the Metzeler M5. The compound has an amazing feel on both the side tread and center tread. Although the center tread is a harder compound (for longer tread life), it provides excellent traction! The side compound is another story, which is why i am writing this review!<br><br>Earlier today i was doing some canyon riding and the tire felt amazing. I get all the way over on my tires so it is very important I get a tire with good grip. As I was taking some very tight curves (going 40-45mph) I accidentally got too low and hit my foot peg. As soon as i hit the peg, my foot popped off and i thought i was for sure going down (as i was still in the curve). All i felt was this amazing tire holding me to the ground with its amazingly grippy compounds! The side tread feels great to touch, very sticky and soft, yet durable. Quick warm up time.<br><br>If you are considering buying this tire, take my word for it, it is the best tire you may ever own! (for street use anyway) Very Similar to the Michelin Pilot Power 3!<br><br>Metzeler, I thank you for making such a great tire!<br><br>-Donny<br>Bike: 2006 Yamaha R1<br>Tire Size: OEM Spec 190/50ZR17

Probably my new favorite tire
Haven't had any issues with these tires at all. The grip is amazing - I've only gone down on them once where I flicked the bike over too fast in a turn on a cold morning (100% my fault, but luckily no damage). I use my bike every day for commuting with the occasional trip up to the twisties, and I got about 8000 miles from them.

Bonneville front tire replacement
Chose the Sportec M5 over the OEM that came on the Bonneville (ME Z4). After 30,000 miles on the bike, I was getting abnormal wear on the Z4s, though mileage was 10-15,000. The M5 was $30 less at Revzilla and a higher speed rating. Only a few hundred miles on the M5 and the tire feels great; but will have to rate these later on after more miles.

Now my first choice.
I switched over from Michelin because I just wasn't getting enough traction from them. A friend suggested Metzeler to me so I thought why not give it a try. Needless to say, as soon as I received them and put them on, I noticed the difference. The tires are very sticky, like a good set of Dunlop summer tires on a performance car. I will definitely keep buying the M5's.

Traction is great
Ayitirider on May 2, 2016
I have tried all the most popular brands of tires and for street, these are the best. You are going to get traction in the rain and they don't not take long to heat up either. The best part about these tires is the longevity. I put my first pair on at 3200 miles and they lasted me until 10k with tread still left. Moderate cornering with many many highway runs.

it was either this or the Dunlop Q3's.
paul h on Mar 12, 2015
My bike came with the racetec k3 (great tires), 2600 miles later they are toasted, the sportec M5 are the next sensible choice, great performance and a little more miles or so they say!
Alberto O on Jan 19, 2015
I've been so pleased with the M3's, I figured I'd try the new and improved version.

'cause it's a good tire and it's German. Just like my bike ('09 K1300S ) and my Schuberth. See a pattern here???
Andrew H on Sep 16, 2014
Research concluded that this was the best type of tire for type of riding I am currently involved with.
Marten M on May 29, 2014
Aprilia RSV4 - used the K3 prior to this and didn't use them enough on the track. I'm switching to the M5.
Chris H on Apr 1, 2014
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.

Wanted to have it ready when my rear wears out in the middle of the summer.

Product reviews for this tire are very good, and I got a deal on a free front with the purchase of the rear.
Aaron H on Dec 30, 2013
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.
Daniel R on Nov 5, 2013
needed new tires and I like what other people had to say about the Metzeler m5.

Wanted to test out a different tire. Wanted decent mileage without sacrificing performance. Went out of the ordinary suggestions of people to branch out and try more of whats out there and see what it has to offer.

Is they a big difference between the M5 D spec and non- D spec tire?
A shopper on Jun 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The d-spec has a harder compound in the center to give extended tread life. I ride a 08 vfr800 that weighs 525 plus my 220lbs & I've ridden about 3k miles, mostly highway commuting & there is still plenty of tread. I believe I'll most likely were them out t the same time. There're a great tire in the dry & wet. Very predicable, smooth & quite
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??
Aris V on Oct 20, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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.
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
A shopper on Oct 4, 2011
BEST ANSWER: 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.
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?
Thanks,
Paul
A shopper on Aug 12, 2012
BEST ANSWER: 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.
