Metzeler Roadtec Z8 Interact Motorcycle Tire

The Metzeler Roadtec Z8 Interact is one of Metzeler’s strongest tires when it comes to wet performance and mileage. The Roadtec Z8 will keep everything under control in the ever changing road conditions out there today. Metzeler designed the Z8 with the demands of modern sport riders in mind.

Features

  • MAW (Metzeler Advanced Winding) technology
  • The profile shape, inspired by the Greek letter "Pi", maximizes the flexibility of the profile, thus ensuring an optimum tire footprint under in all conditions
  • The 3-zone-tension Interact ™ Technology gives outstanding mileage and sporty cornering grip
  • Multi Zone Tension technology, new updated tread profiles and functional tread pattern place the Z8 Roadtec Interact at the top of the sport touring tire class
  • M-Spec and O-Spec tires feature a bi-compound design
  • 8% wider final footprint area than its predecessor due to the variation of steel belt tensions and a strategically placed tread pattern which optimizes pressures in the footprint area
  • FCM (Fine Carbon Mix) High Silica compound with Nano particles ensures performance and safety in all weather conditions
  • Innovative tread pattern, a widened and more elliptical footprint and a host of wear-resistant technologies not normally seen in motorcycle tires give the Roadtec Z8 Interact its best-in-segment mileage and optimal wet performance throughout the tires life
  • New patented tread pattern with strategically placed longitudinal central grooves provide ideal drainage for more than 3/4 of all lean angles in the wet. The remaining tread grooves work to add tread flexibility, extending the footprint for stability in the dry
  • Updated design improves wear regularity which gives riders the benefit of a consistent riding performance across the tires entire life

Shopped internet for Z8 interact tires. BikeBandit had the best price and their website is very user friendly compared to other M/C parts & accessory distributors. Saves me time and frustration when ordering matched tire sets.

I have had metzeler tires on this motorcycle since it was new. Metzeler makes tires in the size that fits the motorcycle.

These are some of just a few tires that will fit my 2000 RT1100RT.<br />Bike Bandit has been good to deal with. Hope they are “fresh” late model tires, not old dusty tires.

Metzeler tires have been great tires in the past and I am hoping (since the Roadtec 01 doesn't come in the sizes I need) these Roadtec Z8's aren't old inventory
Lloyd R on Mar 22, 2019

The Meltzer Z8 appears to be an ideal Sport Touring Tire for my older (1000 Concours) motorcycle.<br />Hoping to keep the good handling but get improved mileage over a std radial.
Ted A on Nov 19, 2018
Reasonable price and have used in the past

Multiple reviews based on my style of riding
Pierce B on Oct 10, 2018
I put in make and model which was 1988 suzuki gsxr 1100 and these were the tires that would fit.
Gerald P on Sep 27, 2018
Been riding on Metzlers for 16 years. Great traction wet or dry, high mileage, and very fair prices. For sport-touring, the Z8 Interact is an ideal tire.

Don S on Jun 16, 2020
Looking for the best tire options for my 2014 Street Triple and currently comparing the Conti Road Attack 3's and Metzler Z8/Interact. Most of my riding is mixed in town and 2-lane backroads with varied road quality with some occassional 4-lane/highway. Any thoughts/suggestions? Thanks!
James L on May 6, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I really like there tires and have used them on a 2007 Speed Triple, 2012 Tiger 1050, and currently on a 2016 Thruxton R. I mainly freeway commute 500 miles per week but also ride mountain roads on the weekend and do occasional track days. On my current bike I got 12k miles out of the front and 8k on the rear so are good for longevity and that included three track days (knee down aggressiveness) so have good grip. The only downside is that they square off toward the end of their life (the dual compound tires tend to do this) and so handling deteriorates.
I see where many of the few tires that fit my bike, (180 or 170/60 R17), come in "tubeless" offerings. Since I have a spoked rim that uses an inner-tube, I was wondering if it's ok to use a tubeless tire with a tube on a spoked rim.

Thanks,
Doug
Dugger on Oct 9, 2012

Exceptional Tires
These are the tires that were in my Ducati ST3S when I bought it and they are amazing. They never lost their grip antwhere, even when worn down almost to the belts. So naturally I bought them again as replacement tires.

Nice tire!
So far these tires are doing really well on my ST1300. My last Metzeler’s only lasted 6000 miles. These are a different model. I would like to get at least 12000.

The Z8 is great but was hoping the Roadtec 01 came in these sizes
Have ridden these previously and enjoyed them and they lasted a good long time, but was really wnating to get a set of the roadtec 01. They do not come in St1300 sizes sadly.....

Great tires
I had Dunlop tire on my stock Honda CB1100 for 7000 miles. They both became worn and cupped on the sides. There was still good tread on the tires' center, but I do not want to chance it. Replacing the rear tire and not the front, I believe this may effect the handling of the bike. So I decided to replace both.
I heard about the Metzeler tires are part of Perelli group.
The compounds they use on the crown are a denser rubber, thus the tires should last longer on the center tread.
I ran Metzelers on My Harley Ultraglide Classic, and they were very smooth and responsive.
I am hoping to get a better ride and tread wear out of the Metzlers.
Right now the bike runs smooth at all speeds and handles the coroners a little slower on the turns but over all they appear to be good.

The cost, availability of the tires, and the delivery were amazing.
Bike Bandit is the only company that I found that had a matching set of tires for my CB1100.
Thanks for being there for me!!!
