Description for Metzeler ME888 Marathon Ultra 170/70B16 Rear Tire

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

Watch those mechanics – they are all pressured to "Up sell" ya. I told the mechanic salesman to k.m.a. after he told me there is no tire that will fit my '98 Honda Shadow for less than $350....and that's the $100 off 'deal' price that only he, my expert salesman, was able to get after typing into a deeper place into whatever website he was looking at. At JP - a phone rep confirmed the Metzeler ME888 170/70B16 will fit my bike – and that tire was in my front yard in less than two days. ....The only one who can complain about that is the salesman at the Honda dealership –– K.M.A.
