Metzeler M7RR
« on: May 09, 2018, 02:15:54 pm »
This tire is absolutely amazing. I've flogged this set harder than I know how to describe, all kinds of surface, all kinds of weather and conditions--and they simply refuse to budge. 200/55 rear, matched set, can't go wrong.  100 percent recommend.  Its better than the Angels, better than the PR4s, better than the Q3s.  Its even better than the S21s I ran for giggles.

Anyone here running a set?

What kind of mileage do you expect to get out of those?  What's your opinion about running a 200 instead of the 190?

I got 7k, which for a sportier tire is amazing imho.  The 200 feels great, speedo is dead accurate, and its planted when leaned.  Plus it looks fat.

OKC, any miles in Arkansas?
I don't get but about 5k out of the tires I've tried.
Seems like Ark. eats the rubber more than other area's.

Ride safe, Ted

Instead of starting a new thread, Figured I would bump this to see if there was any updates? From people I have talked to they seem to be getting around 6-7K out of a set...

No Ted but I did do Oklahoma to California and back on this last set.

I think this note highlights the biggest difference in peoples mileages... {How/where they ride}
I've gotten 5000 miles {mostly less} on all the tires I've tried.
Disclosure;  I'm a sinner.
                     I trailer to events, so all my miles are at rallies. {Not across vast miles of roads}.

 My current set of Avon Sprits have 2000 miles on them. (1200 of which are in Arkansas, the rest at other COG Rallies}.
    It is very doubtful that I'll get 3000 miles out of them.
 
 NOTE: Thinking I would save $$, I tried Shinko's.
              Surprisingly, they felt pretty good.
                Lasted about 1800 miles..  :truce:

Ride safe, Ted
