The back tire is a Metzeler ME 888 so I wanted the same tire on front.

Have had real good luck with the 888's Good handling and high mileage
Hal on Nov 22, 2019
I've used this tire before and have had great success. It lasts the number of miles they say, works great in the rain, and is just a great tire.
Jon S on Nov 15, 2019
Always had great luck with Metzeler tires. Hard in the middle for durability, sticky on the sides for handling.
daniel o on Nov 14, 2019
Seems to be the most durable tire. If you have a tire with better road life please let me know
V B on Nov 11, 2019
I wanted a 140/90-16 tire and decided to give the Metzeler ME 888 a try.
Mike N on Nov 4, 2019
The rear Bridgestone Exedra Max (OEM substitute) tire on my Kawasaki Vulcan Voyager only went 5500 miles. With the high levels of install effort, I'm experimenting, trying to get longer wear. I'm willing to pay more for a tire that last longer. This tire had good reviews.
Jim on Oct 28, 2019
previously had one with good results
Bruce M on Oct 27, 2019
I have used Metzeler ME 880 tires on a previous bike and had great results with them. I decided to give the new ME 888 a try, especially since I ride a touring bike now that weighs over 1000 pounds with me on it. Read a lot of good reviews as well
Kenneth V on Oct 24, 2019
checked reviews looking for better miles with performance
david e on Oct 22, 2019
I've had this tire on my bike for the past two years and it has been an excellent choice. I've put about 15000 miles on this tire and that way better than any other brand I've had on the bike!
Todd E on Oct 22, 2019
Heard good reviews on them wanted to try something else then OEM tires
Bradey W on Oct 17, 2019
I've used me 880's in the past with good success. Want to try the new 888's on my Goldwing.
Mark C on Oct 14, 2019
Because the ME880 was no longer available. Have been running an ME 880 because of recommendations from the M109.c0m Forum.
Richard B on Oct 12, 2019
I’ve had ME880 before so I wanted to try the longer wearing version
Ridin1 on Oct 7, 2019
high quality high milage tire
don b on Oct 6, 2019
Good reviews, and a friend has a set on his cruiser, so I thought I’d give them a try.
Gregory P on Oct 6, 2019
I ride a 06 Ultra Classic. I got tired of changing the rear Dunlop every 5000 miles. After a lot of research the Metzeler ME 888 Marathon was the hands down best tire for durability and performance. I'm gonna see 'bout that with the installation of this tire on my bike.
William Y on Sep 30, 2019
I am riding on one now. Would not willingly use anything else. You have to settle for what ever comes on a new bike, after that, it's metzeler.
John M on Sep 28, 2019
replacement is what's on it.
Tom O on Sep 27, 2019
Because i have a bike n the comander 2 is to soft
Juan A on Sep 26, 2019
price, durability.
brian s on Sep 26, 2019
i've ran these on my HEAVY BMW motorcycle the last 85,000 miles they wear and handle ok on a heavy K12 LT
Richard K on Sep 24, 2019
Good tire and price!
Rolf R on Sep 20, 2019
These tires have offer excellent treadwear and traction. I have been using these on multiple bikes for years. Much better than the factory HD tires.
Bill on Sep 19, 2019
Happy with the metzler tires I've had before.
Chris V on Sep 12, 2019
This tire is one of the best on the market. You can drive on a flat tire because of the reinforced side walls. It has saved me twice.
William S on Sep 10, 2019
These tires offer great handling and high mileage.
Mark M on Sep 9, 2019
Heard good things about them.
S W on Sep 8, 2019
great tire.
P E on Sep 3, 2019
Metzeler no longer makes the ME880 that I've been using for two decades. Hope these work just as well.
Jaime C on Sep 1, 2019
Metzeler tires are very good, I have had a couple different bikes and I always put these on
Larry P on Aug 31, 2019
I chose this tire because I'm looking for better wet traction. My bike is my daily driver so I ride in all conditions.
ERIC M on Aug 31, 2019
Same tire on bike, plus sale price
Kenneth L on Aug 29, 2019

Teresa G on Aug 19, 2019
good reviews, good price, rebate

Experience and Reviews
Stephan J on Aug 9, 2019
very popular tire for Harley Davidson Touring motorcycles. It gets good mileage with proper maintenance(not over inflated or under inflated)
James O on Aug 8, 2019
Reference for motorcycle friends.
Victor L on Aug 8, 2019
Metzeler tires have a long-standing reputation for performance and reliability, besides..., the Michelin tire set I wanted does not have the rear tire for my machine...so I went with the next best German-made tire!
Mark G on Aug 7, 2019
have always liked the way Metzeler tires performed, handled, and the held up to the road. Always a fan
Steve L on Aug 4, 2019
Look like a much better tire than the Metzeler 880. Better mileage to my understanding. Can't wait to try it, got nothing to loose.
Charles B on Aug 4, 2019
Quality
J C on Aug 4, 2019
Very good tires...ride two up always and put 10,000 miles on the back tire...the front is almost new. Will be buying more. They ride and handle great.
Wayne T on Aug 1, 2019
This is an alternate replacement front tire.
Steven A on Jul 28, 2019
RECOMMENDED BY A FELLOW SHOP OWNER
rick d on Jul 27, 2019
The back tire is a Metzeler ME 888 so I wanted the same tire on front.
Aubrey S on Jan 6, 2020
This is the best tire for motorcycles
ELI on Dec 2, 2019
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
Jeff Pava
Jeff - riding 46 years on Oct 15, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Can these tubeless tires be mounted on tubetype (with tubes) rims?
Sir David Hawkins on May 14, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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.
What is the max PSI? The only rating I found was do not exceed 40 PSI during installation. So 40 is the max working PSI??
David H on Jul 5, 2019
BEST ANSWER: David, thanks for the question. I couldn't find any info on the Metzeler website but I was checking out some forums online and depending on the tire size many people run 40 up front and 42-44 in the rear. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you by contacting us by email at [email protected], Live Chat or by phone toll-free at 1-888-339-3888.

Can I run a tube in this tire ?
A shopper on Sep 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I believe that you can run a tube in any tire but I would check with the manufacturer or a motorcycle tire specialist. A tubeless tire has a much beefier tire bead sine this is the sealing surface. You may experience some difficulty getting the tire on the rim due to this design, that is if you are mounting the tire yourself without a tire machine.

What does it mean speeding rating?
A shopper on Mar 20, 2019

Will this fit on a 2006 ultra?
A shopper on Aug 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for the question. According to our records, a 2006 Harley Electra Glide Ultra uses a MT90-16 front which converts to 130/90-16 or 5.00 to 5.10" and a MU85-16 rear which converts to 140/90-16 or 5.50 to 6.00". Looks like the front tire is available as a direct size replacement, as far as the rear goes you might be able to use a 150/80-16. Make sure that the load index and speed rating match up or exceed what Harley recommends before ordering.

Is it normal for a lot of black dust to come off tire with 3,500 miles on them?
Lisa W on Oct 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Lisa, thank you for the question. I wouldn't say it's normal. Do your tires look worn out? Are you giving it too much throttle? Are you maybe confusing it for brake dust? It could be a lot of things. Even the roads you are riding on... We would like to hear more about your situation.

will you send me the manufacture date of tire i am going to purchase? i do not want a one year old tire before it even gets placed on my bike...
Thomas M on Jul 31, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question! Unfortunately we are not able to guarantee that but we do know most if not all our tires are usually within a year of the manufacture date. We do not stock large amounts of tires at our location so most tires are shipped directly from the tire manufacturers closest warehouse to you. This would be the freshest stock they have on hand that is being shipped from these locations. We unfortunately do not have a way to verify which date you would get on your tire. All tires sold by BikeBandit.com are well within the manufacturers suggest shelf life for tires. Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with.

Rear tire cupping , or scalloping !
I kept close attention to the air pressure , but the rear tire still
cupped badly after 4000 miles ! Tire was made in Brazil . I don't
know if they have a problem there , but I won' t buy anything from
Metzler again !

It’s amazing how well the bike rides with these tires! I had put them on a previous ride like 20 years ago and was amazed; it was like riding a different bike, and today, I can still say the same! I’m lovin’ Metzlers!

Excellent product . I bought my bike used and had a Metzeler on the front . The front tire lasted two years before needing replacement due to tread depth . I have used Metzeler tires before front and rear best tire I've used . Avon , Dunlop , Kenda do not compare as for tread wear , traction and wet road traction .

ME 888 Ultra
I put these tires on a BMW K1200LT, a 900 lb bike. They wear like iron and still handle well. I get 10K from rears and 15K from fronts. Longer wear than any other tire I have tried on this bike.

Overall grip is great...mileage to be determined.
Lots of folks saying that they slip on wet and dry and are just too stiff or hard for aggressive riding styles. This is total B.S.! I put them on a 2004 Honda Shadow Spirit that's been customed a bit with pipes, jet kit, tracker bars, etc.and I pushed them right after a 40 mile scrub on and they hold the road in wet and dry pretty damn good. Now let's see the increased mileage!

ME 888 Marathon tires...front & rear aer.
I love my ME 888 Marathon tires. My Yamaha Royal Star rides like anew bike. Feel safe on her, and these tires take the curves like a race bike. That's the only tire I ride.

Great first impressions
Just mounted myself. Went on easier than the OEM tire and required less balance weight. Still breaking in - first commute this morning. Hopefully longer lived than the OEM tire. DOT code was nearly a year old, but these aren't going to age out with my mileage accumulation rate.
