Description for Metzeler ME888 Marathon Ultra 130/80-17 Front Tire

Metzeler Risk Free Guarantee

If you want a tire that can hold up to hard riding, look no further. Metzeler designed the ME888 Marathon Ultra motorcycle tire with American V-Twin bikes in mind, combining long mileage with great performance to ensure a safe, reliable ride. It's unlikely you'll find a longer-lasting tire for sale at such a great price.

• Constructed by wrapping a single ply of steel cords around a radial tire carcass to produce a Metzeler tire with exceptional performance and stability at high speeds

• Steel belt design provides uniform heat distribution, resulting in improved wear characteristics and higher mileage

• Redesigned tread provides better water drainage, providing great wet-weather handling

NOTE: When replacing front tires, check the wear on your rear tire. Worn rear tires paired with new front tires can cause instability and affect the handling of your motorcycle

Haven't mounted these yet got a few more miles on the tires on bike, The last set I put on lasted about 19000 miles, hope these get that many

DONNIE on 10/21/2019

I’ve been running these tires for years and have not had any issues.

JAMES on 10/14/2019

I've been a fan of Metzeler tires for over 30 years. I needed a reliable tire that gave decent mileage and outstanding performance on questionable road surfaces. Metzeler has always delivered, from the tires on my '85 Superglide to the many other HDs I've owned over the years. Lately my choice has been the 888 Marathon Ultra, for its hold on the pavement under load and speed. Living in Europe has benefits, but often the tradeoff is in wet roads, sand and other debris that seems to form out of nowhere. Then there's the occasional semi. Metzeler tires deliver, in that even under hard braking, the connection with the road never fades, remains predictable and wear on the tire exceeds any other tire I've ever run on a heavy, loaded bagger with a little extra in the HP/torque department. You'll never regret Metzelers. Period.

Long lasting tread

Put this on my 2011 FLHTK. First ride on the tire 300 miles. Ride is better than the Dunlop's. Tire does not seem to follow the road snakes. Thirty MPH cross wind's and seems to hold the road fine. Did not notice any more road noise than other tires. Will see how they wear and ride in the rain. Would buy again.
