    Comments about Metzeler ME 888 Marathon Ultra Motorcycle Tire:

    I put on 10,000 miles yes thats right 10k. It does get a little loose at the end of the tire life. When new it grips great. I feel like I have a V rated tire on. This is on my 05 VTX1300C

    Metzeler ME 888 OUTSTANDING !

    By Bradford

    Comments about Metzeler ME 888 Marathon Ultra Motorcycle Tire:

    I love the Metzeler ME 888 on my 2004 Honda 1300VTX. I have 76K on the bike now so I would say I do a fair amount of riding. Crossing from one lane to another when there is "That edge" the 888 rides over the hump VERY WELL. Handling at lower speeds is a breeze with the 888. I don't have to use the force I had to use with the Metzeler 880. I now ride 125 miles a day and still loving the 888. They are worth every penny spent.

    • Q:

      This tire is a "high Mileage" tire. What kind of mileage should they last? My Dunlop D402 - MU85B16 are only lasting about 5,000 miles. (2007 FLHTCUSE2). Previously on my 1984 and 1991 Electra Glides Ultra Classics I got 10,000 miles on the rear tires. I don't beat my bikes but I don't baby them either. I do push them (cornering, high speeds on the highways, - no burnouts!).
      What should I expect out of this metzeler tire?
      Thank you

        A:

        Thank you for your question! Unfortunately there is no set mileage for any motorcycle tire but we do know we have had customers as well as employees that have used this tire tell us they are getting mileage ranging from 8,000-up words of 15,000 miles out of these tires (Rear). Many factors can vary the life of motorcycles so there is no guarantee on mileage unfortunately. After many uses though we find the Metzeler ME880 to be a pretty consistant tire when it comes to extended mileage. Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with.

    • Q:

      Can these tubeless tires be mounted on tubetype (with tubes) rims?

        A:

        Thanks for your question! Yes they sure can. Tubeless only means the tire will hold air without a tube as well. Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with.
