• The construction of the Metzler ME 888 incorporates a single ply of steel cords wrapped around a radial tire carcass, giving riders exceptional performance and stability at high speeds

• The tread of the ME 888 was redesigned to provide better water drainage, giving touring bike riders a motorcycle tire that handles well in wet weather conditions

rickdmob

Only had it for a week but this is a very smooth riding tire with a deep sidewall tread for tight turns. Best tire I have had.

Jerr_man

Great product great seller

carmenpirro

I have always liked metzler, but am having problem with balancing on a perfectly balanced solid rim, creating a wobble at 80 mph. The matching rear required no weights, but the front had 1 1/4 oz, and still wobbles. Won't buy again

bonercat30

So far so good. Stick well. fast shipping

rhardy1957

All around better than stock

mshansen41

I've run Metzeler tires on my bike since I got it, love them. Great Pricing and SUPER quick shipping, thanks!! I'll be coming back for the next set when these are gone.

HannonDV

Great tires, and they were delivered the next day. J&P makes it easy to order and shop online.

gthomaslee

Mwalla30

Great prices. Thanks

chartong

Great touring tire. Fit and look is great. Shipping was fast. I had a slight wobble at about 80 mph with the original tires. Now it's been smooth as can be up to 95mph. Don't know about wear yet.

thomasny69

These tires really grip the road. I am very happy with my purchase.

richard.graham5

The ME888 is the best tire I have ever put on my bike.

d236595

good price, fast shipping

tnt2007

This is my 2nd set Metzeler tires. I like the way they handle my FLHTCU. J&P had a good price. With install at a local cycle shop I was at about $365.00 for both tires.

tazpuz

drake_dog2

ranmar10

Nice tire, good grip on road

reillybp

J&P is easy to deal with and the tire was delivered before the promised delivery date. I have never had a problem with the products I have purchased and delivery is always fast.

will_112

I have one on the rear of my 02 Fatboy and i love it i have about 3500 miles on this tire so far still looks new grips like new and i took my bike for a ride today 12/26 in NW PA and i was not sliding all over on all the anti skid they put down on the road (small little rocks) I am ordering one for the front and will have it on before spring. I give these tires 4 out of 5 because i am sure somewhere there is a better tire but i have not found one but i leave one star open to improvements

lc

Tired tracks and handles great. Time will tell on tire wear.

mjwarriors2

J&P always wonderful service, best tire at the best price. Tires stick to the road like glue!!

Joe3bama

Price good, as usual. Tire matches the rear, tread wise and weight rating. Will have to see how it lasts.

trayiii

Have not installed tire yet but it looks good quality and service was fast.

CharlesHardy

Good wear life.

bebob

Great corning and a smooth ride. The $50 Metzeler visa card for buying a pair is great too!

ole188

Awesome tires. Massive improvement over the stock Dunlops on my Streetglide.

rchilly

Bob from Maryland..I need to put some miles on them first then I can judge, but so far they ride great.

mmazzone25

tire looks great, smooth ride and handles well

mmartin44

I ordered the new Metzler 888 front for my bagger on Wed. Thurs morning the UPS delivered it. WOW such great service. Tire is mounted and have 100 miles on it, smooth as silk.

cj8dave

Handle super. Even in heavy rain.

John Eric

Tire arrive quickly and in excellent condition

DDDeibler

Outstanding product with an outstanding price

pondo1

I got the tires from J&P cheaper than I could locally. They were delivered in 2 days and I had them installed in time for a ride we had planned that weekend. Great Job!

Bear56

So far so good. I hope they last as long as Metzeler claims.

markb55

888 is a great tire for A road king, Metzeler is top of the line, to me. J&P had a good price on it too. Shipped quick too.

tralfaze

great product and a good substitute for the Dunlop tires Harley recomends. Got 'em installed a I love the ride! What I really liked was the two day earlier than promised delivery!
