These Things are The Monkey's Pajamas!
I was just coming back from the shop where they fitted new Metzeler 880's to My Honda Shadow Aero 750.. And thought - "it's a nice day" .."let's put a quick 60 miles on these new tires - take her up into the mountain highway twisties.. Y'know.. Just to see"..

Well.. The OEM Recommended (and original) Tires on this bike were Dunlop 404's.. And now, having ridden both - I can say - with a hand on my heart.. Honda would sell a LOT More Bikes if they started putting Metzelers 880's on them!

The Difference is night and day..

How to explain the difference? Well.. My Aero always flowed down the road like a lady in ball gown.. You didn't tell the bike were to go - you kinda suggested - asked "nicely" - and "hoped she wasn't "in a mood"..

Compared to that..

Cornering on the Metzelers is like being on a train track, transit over gravel? I barely felt my bike shift, road pitting, grooves, and tar snakes? a good 85% - That's "Eighty-Five" Percent Less tracking and "feel" over those things compared to the Dunlop 404's.. Braking??!! Just ..OMG!!!!, I can stop on a dime with these things!! Slow, tight parking lot maneuvers are also so much more sure-footed..

Think cutting fresh bread with a butter knife compared to a razor-sharp bread knife kinda "difference"..

I was so impressed with the difference between these two tires that I simply had to Write a quick initial impressions review..

I'm blown away - It feels like a different bike, a BETTER Bike.. MY Better Bike - It's MINE and YOU Can't Have It! :o)..

Well Done Metzeler!

I only Rated these new tires moderate-to-high on wet, and tread life as I have no experience with these two things as yet but.. "I'm Assuming" they will so much better than the Dunlops :o)

I am Now Definitely a Metzeler Man.

So, Having Said ALL That, and if you Still NEED Somebody to tell you to "buy a thing"..

Well.. Okay..

If you ever find yourself in the position of having to choose between the Dunlop 404's, and the slightly more expensive Metzeler 880's.. Do Yourself a favor.. Do Your BIKE a favor.. Go with the Metzelers. You WON'T Regret it.

Take Care, and Ride Safe Ladies and Gents..

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.

One of the best for the money
This is my second Metzeler tire for my 2006 HD VRSCD. It had roughly 11k on it and was purchased and installed in 2008. A thin slither of metal caused it to deflate. A Stop n Go mushroom plug kept air in it (somewhat) until I could get the rear tire from RevZilla. Since my friend was going to help me remove and install the tire, the folks at RevZilla had the tire shipped to his home in NJ. I couldn't believe that tire was at his home in TWO days! My friend couldn't believe it either. RevZilla does a really cool thing which is to BOX the tire and ship. The tire got to his home in perfect condition and super fast! Oh yes, because of some discounts, I got the tire delivered at the LOWEST price on the Internet! Under closer inspection I need to order the front tire as well and I intend to order once again from RevZilla because again, they have the lowest price. I couldn't be happier with my decision, thanks RevZilla!

Would not run anything else
I have run the Metzler tires for 25 yrs and there is nothing that compares, I have these tires on both my 2003 Indian Spirit and 2012 Chief, I get about 7k out a rear and 14k out of front, I change my front with every other rear change, tire troubles are easy to avoid, these tires need a little care, check air often, they LOVE WET ROADS and take turn with confidence, my Chief road weight is 890, I would not buy any thing else, I go through 2-3 rear tires a year, run the BEST and be happy

A great tire for my HD Ultra Classic due to the heavy weight of the bike.
Tire works well in all conditions and last longer that other brands I have tried in the past. I highly recommend the Metzeler 880 to any cruiser.

No Shaky Middle Man
Just for a second, think of your tires as the negotiator between you and the road. The last thing you want is a shaky middle man. These tires grip well wet, pretty much elimate road snakes (tracking), that wiggle over railroad tracks, and deliver an all around better ride. I put 200/70/15 on the rear, and a 90/90/21 on the front of a VN 900. Fit is tight on both ends, but there is no problem with clearance. When it comes time for tires again, I will order these again.

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.

Love it. So far
Just have about 300 mi on it so far but it has been super grippie and the grooves are very deep which leads me to believe it will last a good while also(to be seen). I'm happy with the price and function so far. I would purchase again.

Great Tire
I have run all manufacturers Tires. My friends and family pressured me to try this one. Its ride and handling is unbelieveable. Sticks hard in the corners and smoothed out the overall ride. No more bouncing or trying to wash out on the dreaded highway ground up roads.
