    I ride with a group of bike riders. As our tires wore out we bought all differnt brands of tires and keep track of total milage.This is the tire that we got the most miles out of it.Now all the new tires we get are the Metzeler 880.

      Comments about Metzeler ME 880 Marathon Motorcycle Tire:

      I drive a Suzuki C-90, and got 18,000 miles on my Metzeler ME 880 tires so I would not dare change brands. I live on the Gulf Coast but I drive my bike every direction, North-South-East-West. These tires corner well, grip well and last long. Better than Dunlop and Bridgestones

      Comments about Metzeler ME 880 Marathon Motorcycle Tire:

      I used the tire to improve Form factory 180. I remember my first ride after the installation, it was as if the bike would have driven it's self, if I only had cruise. The extra meat on the road was awesome. If I would stay out of the throttle, I would probably get more miles out of tire, but what's the point of having 1800cc if you're not going to use it. I would recommend this tire, and bike bandit has best price with quick shipping.

        As soon as the stock tires wear out, I put on the 880's. Best overall tire I have found for my cruisers. Iv'e had 3 other makes and none equal the mileage or performance. I promote this tire to all my club members and friends. I average over 20,000 K a yr. and depend on them.

          Does this tire have the proper load rating for a 2005 BMW k1200lt? Is this the oem tire?

            A:

            Thank you for your question. No the O.E.M. tire for the BMW K1200LT has to be a reinforced tire. The ME880 Marathon Reinforced motorcycle tire is required. The ME880 Reinforced tire has the load index specifications required by BMW. Below is a link to the correct tire:

        • Q:

          I have a custom made bike that currently has a ME880 Marathon 210/50-17 rear tire. I noticed the final drive belt is rubbing the edge of the tire. I cannot adjust this with shims. Will a 200/50-17 tire fit the same rim, or possibly a 190/x-17?

          Thanks,

            A:

            thank you for the question! when you re looking at the tire sizing, the first number will be the width (or footprint) of the rubber on the ground. What you have now will be 210= 210 mm. The 200= 200mm on the ground so this would be a skinnier tire

          Some tires are listed ex 180 etc. What does MU or MT reference to on a size. I have a 06 Road King.
          The rear can be either a MT90B-16
          or a MU85B-16. What is the difference between 90 and 85?

            Thanks for your question! The MT90b-16 is the equivalent of a 130/90-16 and the MU85b-16 is equivalent to a 140/80-16. The 90 and 85 represents how tall the tire is off the rim.
