Metzeler Tourance Rear Tire
Having had this tire previously, I knew I'd like it. However, this was my first order with Revzilla, and I am sold! Their site is excellent, product mix is great, and their product review videos are actually worthwhile! Thank you.

Revzilla to the Rescue with a Great Set of Tires
This summer just before leaving on my 2013 Yamaha Super Tenere for a 9300+ mile solo bike trip, I checked in with the cycle shop where I intended to get service on my bike and learned they did not stock the tires I wanted. Not wanting to take a risk, I called Revzilla and ordered front and rear Metzeler Tourance tires to be sent to a friend in Nevada. Three days into my trip, my friend calls - the tires arrived. One week, 14 states, and six national parks later I pull into the cycle shop in NV; 15 mins later my friend delivers the tires to the shop and I put my gear in his car. The next day the cycle shop finishes the service, mounts the tires and I'm off for the great Southwest. On the remainder of the trip, I road fully loaded with my gear through hail and rain, and gravel roads and dirt trails in NV, UT, & CO on my trip back home to TN with no tire or grip issues. I've put 5000 miles on the Metzeler Tourance tires and they look nearly new...I should get close to 10,000 miles. Just road the Dragon near my home in TN...still great grip and ready to go find more on-off road riding. Thanks Revzilla for responding so fast and the Metzeler Tourance tires are great.

NOISY BUT, RELIABLE
Just purchased a set of Tourance tires and mounted same. They are replacing a set of Metzler NEXT tires. The Tourances are noisy, but the tread life is better. I got 9K out of two sets of NEXT's. Usually get around 12K from Tourances. Good all-around tire for GSA.

Made in China. No more!
Made in China. No more! I realized after they were mounted, expected a German made tire that was made in China. Will do more research and shop else where.

longer lasting tyre with decent grip
I purchased a set of these tyres on-the-road at the end of last Summer.
I had been running Distanzia and been very happy with the grip but fully loaded on heated roads I was getting 6,500 miles out of them.
I'm at 5,000 miles with the Tourance and it looks like I have over half the tyre tread left BUT I have been running as a solo rider (no luggage) on Winter temperature roads.
I have a cross-country route planned for this Summer CA to NY via the MOA rally in St Paul and around Thunder Bay. I didn't want to have to think about tyres until I reached the East coast - thus this purchase...

Great mileage, good overall
I got over 9K miles out of the rear and 10K from the front. about 90% was on-road. Good traction on-road, dry and wet; off-road good for dry dirt roads but any mud or grass and it's like riding a pure road tire, sand also blows. I would rate the grip higher if the tire was softer but that would decrease mileage.

Great looking tire, lots of grip.
Have received many compliments on the aggressive tread pattern of the tire. Looks good on my Triumph Scrambler. Doesn't give up any off road capability and adds to the styling, I have no trouble going down gravel roads @ 60mph. Much quieter on road than the stock tire that came off. Tread wearing well @ 1k miles.

Metzeler tires are choice
Great tires for on and off. Altough they are primarily street tires they handle abd grip off road like a dream.
