This is a good tire at a moderate price. Time will tell on the performance and longevity aspects.


Great service on a great tire . Installed myself will see how the tire wears,this is my first Metz


Its hard to find matching tires for my bike. This is the second set like this that I have used. I got good milage out of them (15-18K). The front could have been left on for about another 5K at least. Decided to change out as a set. For the set about $120 cheaper than any bike shop.
