Very impressive tire I am very happy with my new set of Metzeler m5 tires. I wanted something that would last but also still give me the performance of a sport tire and I'm glad I went with the m5. August 17, 2015
Excellent tires I have been using M5 on my machine for the past 6 years. I never have any complaints about them. They warm up fast and always grip the road. July 27, 2015
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! July 21, 2015
Great grip at all angles, good tread life I have already put 2500 miles on these tires and a track day. Both on the track and on the road these tires show their worth! They work very well for dry grip and wet grip. I can't speak for the tread life yet but they seem to be lasting and have a few more thousand miles left on them. June 8, 2015

love them! I believe Metzler makes one of the best sport bike tire in the business. Tire feels wonderful on my gsxr 750. Very confident inspiring and lean angle gauge is a pretty cool feature! April 7, 2015
I'll be buying again My Triumph Speed Triple came with Metzeler K3's which lasted all of 2300 miles (2600 on the front). I wanted something that would last longer but performed nearly the same. I don't notice any difference and I'd say I'm a quite spirited rider around all the twisties in the San Francisco Bay Area. Warm up quick and I feel confident ripping it around the corners the same with these as the K3's. Didn't rate wet traction as I haven't ridden in the rain and don't know the tread life as I have only about 500 miles on so far. April 6, 2015
Great tire I can't tell the difference on the road between the K3's and the M5's. Perhaps on the track, but I can't see it getting any better than these for ripping it around the twisties in the mountains of NorCal. I'll be sticking with these for the foreseeable future. May 4, 2015

paul h: it was either this or the Dunlop Q3's. Mar 12, 2015

Eric A: I've been so pleased with the M3's, I figured I'd try the new and improved version. Dec 10, 2014

H O: 'cause it's a good tire and it's German. Just like my bike ('09 K1300S ) and my Schuberth. See a pattern here??? Sep 16, 2014
Marten M: Research concluded that this was the best type of tire for type of riding I am currently involved with. May 29, 2014
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

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
Jonathan F: 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. Aug 12, 2013
A shopper asked: Is they a big difference between the M5 D spec and non- D spec tire? Jun 18, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (3) No (0)
A s: 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 Jun 22, 2014

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
