Metzeler ME880 Marathon Front Tires 4.7 5 65 65
This tire has had a short life with me... I ride a Triumph Rocket III Roadster.. there aren't a lot of manufacturers out there that make a tire for this bike.. So the bike came new with Metz 880's on it.. I have gone through 7 rear tires since I bought it. Averaging 3100 - 4500 miles per rear tire.. I get less when I'm riding around town, due to the simple fact of starting and stopping so often. I don't do burn outs nor do I pull wheelies on this bike. But, This bike is a torque monster, As mine dyno'd out at over 168hp and 164ftlbs of torque (I did make a few improvements). I have spoken with other TR3R owners and they tell me that they get a few more miles per tire out of it than I do, but they ride more conservative.. To each his own.. I just know that there needs to be a tire out there that gets better mileage without sacrificing fun, cornering ability and having to ride like a granny. April 26, 2016
Grips the road This tire grips the road like its bleeding adhesive. Great traction but because of that, there is reduced tread life. I always use Metzler because I prefer staying on the road no matter the RPM's. Great tire - great performance. March 22, 2016
Have not had chance to test in wet and not long enough to comment on tread life Bought this tire because I replaced my rear tire with Pirelli dragon. There was no dragon that was sized for my front wheel (130 x 70 x 17). Gave it a week to wear in and it sticks great now. Lay the bike down into bends, scrape the pegs with ease and total confidence. Vulcan Meanstreak. The combo of the tires works great and extremely satisfied with the Metzeler. Price is the only negative comment. December 14, 2015
Good tire. Ordered this on a Monday after 12:00 got it on Tuesday. Awesome service. Put it on and the bike rides like a different machine. Can't speak to tread life yet, but I've been impressed so far. January 19, 2016
Great tire Time will tell if it holds up to the initial impression it gives but a truly outstanding tire over the first 1,000 miles or so. August 17, 2015
My cruiser is a bullet bike Hugs the corners, grinding pipes and pegs with confidence. I ride all year in Idaho, so i will review again in winter. June 23, 2015
Mearly Average I installed these on my Victory Cross Country Tour. I got about 10,000 miles out of the rear tire and it is worn flat with lots of good tread left on the sides. The OEM Dunlops got about the same mileage. I am going to try the Shinko on the rear next. If I get 10K out of them then I will be happy as the price is great. December 28, 2014
I could not be happier with these tires I bought my 2000 Vulcan Nomad in 2013 with only 8500 miles on it but it had been previously owned by a tire dealer who had a stable of bikes and maintained it extremely well. Despite that, it inexplicably came to me with a pair of pretty inadequate tires. I suspect he had put better tires on it when new then put the original Bridgestone back on the front when he sold it. The tire had plenty of tread but was clearly far from new. It was extremely noisy on turns and in no way inspired confidence in its handling. I forget what the back tire was but it didn't match and even though it had some tread it was prone to breaking away on turns at low speed under acceleration and it locked up on me more than a couple of times under moderately hard braking. When I put these Metzler Marathons on the Vulcan the transformation was nothing short of astonishing. It was like the bike lost 200 pounds. Everything about the way it handled became sportier and more comfortable and it has allowed me to ride with much more confidence than I ever thought I'd have after the first couple months struggling with those old tires. I was able to find another online dealer who offered a better price on them but there were other items I wanted from Revzilla at the same time so I inquired about their price matching policy and just a half hour after my inquiry it was approved. The local shop who installed them was impressed enough with that price that they now get their tires through Revzilla. I should mention one of the other items I bought at the same time was a pair of riding pants that didn't fit, and the return process was super easy. I'm out the $11 return shipping but you pays your money you takes your chances. Still cheaper compared to rip off prices at local stores with way more options available. September 2, 2014
