Cupping!
5
New Metzeler ME 880 Marathon front tire 13070 B18 on my 2011 Harley road glide starting miles 62458 on 82113. I now have 65736 miles. (3305 miles on this tire) It is already showing signs of cupping! I should have stayed with the Dunlop elites! Now to see if there is any monetary value I can recoup. I really don't want a replacement. I will say that so far the Metzeler 888 on the rear looks ok... Oh and yes I ALWAYS check my pressure I have over 30 years riding experience and am a MSF riding coach.

The only thing better than the product is the customer service. I ordered the tire on line for Will Call and picked up the tire two days later. I had Chaparral Service department install it on my bike and the cost was very reasonable. They even checked the brakes in the process and gave me a verbal report when the work was complete. I buy from Chaparral anytime I need something for my bike.

Worse tires ever made .Here's why; Got front and back met 880 got only 6000 rear and 10front on my Yamaha 1100 v star Silverado. Handled ok but poor wear. Normal wear is 14000 rear and 30000 front. Also the sidewalls cracked on front tire. When I got then they had a newer date stamp on it. I will buy Sinko or Kenda for half the price and better ratings. Maybe why they cost so much if they know you will only waste your money one time on them.

Amazing Tire!
5
I put this tire on my Vulcan 900 to replace the original stock Dunlop d404 and what a difference it makes. The ride is way smoother cornering on winding mountain passes is nearly effortless. I never thought there could be such a huge difference in brand of tires until i tried these. Definitely worth a little extra cash for these tires.
