Metzeler ME888
« on: May 14, 2018, 05:29:24 am »
Throwing it out there for group to dicuss.
After reading about new version of ironclad tire ME880, I got curious. What about ME888.
Has anyone given a thought of running such tire on Connie?

Cheers...

I looked at the Metzler website and they do not offer a 190/50/17 in the ME888. I have always been told that the ME880 is a very "hard" tire and not for sporty  bikes. And as you can tell from the replies that not many people run them. Unless you live in Kansas (very few turns)  :??: I would not try them. Just my .02 cents.

Unless they have changed over the years HARD is why most don't run them.  Feel great till you hit a stripe or water or cold or...
