Have put 4K on these tires and wear has been negligible, smooth quiet ride, excellent grip, superior tire vs the oem on my Aero. Lowest price in the area from J&P too. Would give 5 stars but waiting to see what the overall life of the tire will be

Great price, shipped fast. Only 500 miles on tire so far, but a great ride.

5 by

These are so well made and both my 1100 and 1500 ride is smoother and a much tighter steering feel. The cost is well worth the ride and craftsmanship of these tires

So far so good. I've driven about 1000 miles on this tire and it handles very well. Great grip on the road.

These Metzeler Me880 tires are the best tires you could find! They may be a few $'s more expensive than the others but they are definitely worth it! Highly recommend! I will suggest that when you look for tires for your bike, go with the tire size instead of the "Compatible" listing of tires that the parts finder suggests. I looked for weeks for a Metzeler tire for the rear of my 05 Suzuki Boulevard M50. The site did not show the tire to fit, but it was the exact same size as my stock tire. After I installed it, the bike rode like a dream! I highly highly recommend this tire!!

This is my second rear Metezler and I am totally satisfied with it's performance and durability.

Several friends I ride with recommended the Metzler 880 touring tire for its long tread wear life and overall performance. After several 100 mile round trips to work and a 300 mile Charity Poker Run on April 22, I am a firm believer in the Metler Tire series. The tire feels solid in cornering, acceleration and braking, The IRC tire, (Factory) wore out in Just over 9000 miles. During a poker run yesterday I met the person who intruduced me to Metzler Tires over a year ago, he is still running the 880 on his Softtail and after 6000 miles, still looks as good as new. Although a little more expensive, durability and safety make the Metzler 880 a great product at a fair price. As for JP Cycles, I cannot remember when I had so much pleasure ordering and recieving items from a catalog. I have passed my JP book around my friends who have ordered items and are requesting their own catalogs. Thanks JP Cycles, I am looking forward to my next order.
