Back to Metzeler
When I purchased my R1100RSL a year ago, within twenty four hours I punctured the rear Z6 and had to get new tires. I went with the Michelin Pilot Road 3's and they were excellent tires. However after getting a drill bit in the fairly new rear tire, and finally needing to replace the front, I decided to go back to the Z6's. So far, I have found the Metzelers to be as good as the Michelins. I have yet to see how they will hold up life wise, but they should get me in the same ballpark as the Michelin line. I also own a 1200GS with Tourances on it and they are holding the road fantastically with good tread life. With the Metzelers running a little bit less cost wise, they are an excellent choice when you have budgetary concerns.

After a few thousand miles, Metzler Z6 good purchase
After putting a few thousands miles on my ST1100 with the Metzler Z6 tires I have been out in the cold, the heat, and the rain. Not once have I felt the bike lose traction unexpectedly. This was a solid purchase. Thanks Revzilla for putting this tire in your recommendation list for sport tourers like me.

Very good high speed stability
I used to fit the Z4 to my ST1100 for years until they were replaced by the Z6. I use my bike for daily commuting to work as well as road trips couple of times a year, and these tires give me confidence to go fast even during a downpour. However, I have encountered uneven wear for the rear tire which prompted pre-mature tire change. No such problem for the front. Otherwise would have rated it a 5 stars.

German technology and quality.
Picked up a mint condition, low mileage 1995 BMW R1100RSL. The rear tire was in good shape, the front was worn pretty good. After installing a new front tire the ride and handling was greatly improved. I'll be ordering a new rear tire this spring just for peace of mind. This is an excellent sport touring tire.

Toby B: In 1995 this was standard equipment on the BMW R1100RSL. Overall a really great handling tire. German technology, need I say more?Mar 29, 2014
Michael M: Its a fine tire for commuting. Predictable handling in wet or dry, and longer miles than I've gotten from other models. I buy the same kind over and over because I like knowing what to expect.Nov 14, 2013
Tod C P: Reviews and my matching front is new. Rear is great shape but 2006 manufacture date and too old for me to trust.Sep 8, 2013
A shopper asked:2010 k1300gt which tire ? not sure what the "K"or "C" meansMay 25, 2014
Glenn H:The "K" tire is what is recommended for your particular bike. The K vs C rating has to do with the stiffness of the sidewall. This affects how much load the tire can carry and how comfortable or sporty the ride is. I believe both tires will fit though. The C version is used on my R1100RT sport touring model.May 30, 2014
Toby B:The "K" or "C" prefix number is a BMW reference number as to what bike this tire was originally supplied as new. It has nothing to do with traction or compound. There is only one type of the Roadtech Z6, just make sure that you order the correct size and pay no attention to the letters. Hope this helps.May 30, 2014
