New shoes for my Gunner. Overall very pleased.
Did my research and went with the Metzelers over the Dunlop E4 and the Avon Cobra with the hopes of getting good mileage while improving ride and grip over the stock Dunlop 491’s. Got almost 15k on stock so hoping for similar results, time will tell. Heard good things about RockyMountain so after checking prices I have them a try. Tires arrived in two days! Date codes were within a year so pleased with that. Ran down to my dealer and got them mounted with no issues. Only gotten a few hundred miles as it is March in NE Ohio but very pleased so far. Will post follow up once I’m able to get a few thousand miles and push them in the turns and in the rain.

Very good handling.
I put this on the front of a HD Ultra Classic. I could feel the improved handling before I even left the driveway. I had other brands. I will not go back to them.

Metzler ME888 Marathon Ultra Front tire
I have been using this tire for a while now and have been very happy with it. I got a little more mileage out of it than the original dunlop tires.

What an upgrade!
I am riding a 1988 Honda Magna for the past 11 years. I have never given the tire replacement much thought and used the ones that came standard, the Dunlop. They have always been fine. This time around, I asked a trusted motorcycle guru friend about tires. I actually asked him if I should go with the cheaper ones or stay with the OEM. He suggested I get the newest versions available to take advantage of advancing technology. I bought the Metzeler even though they were quite a bit more. I am so happy I did. From the get go, the handling is dramatically better. The tires are not squirrely from groves on the highway and handle the turns and curves so much better. It is like I have a new motorcycle. Why did it take 25 years of riding to discover great tires? I will never go back.

I am buying again
I had previously bought these 5 years ago to replace some Avon's on my HD Sportster based on all of the positive wright ups. What a difference. I said then I would purchase these again when the time came. I now own a Fat boy Softail that is in need of tires. It has the Dunlop's and I am buying the Metzler 888s again. The only area I did not rate is the tread life. That is because my Sporty still had the Metzler's on it when I sold it so I do not know how long they lasted. They are probably still on it :)

Stable front tire
I just put these tires on my Bike four days ago and have had the chance to put them on a good trip from Colorado to Nevada and back. The weather was not a bikers dream. I had extreme winds both ways from head on to side to side. This front tire stayed glued to the road in rain wind sand storms. I won't ever put the stock Harley Dunlap tires on my bike again.

BEST ANSWER: Depends on load and speed you will be running, Riding single, double or pulling a trailer requires different pressure.
Can I use metzeler 888 on my front and on my rear metzeler 880??? I have a 2007 victory hammer.
Christian G on Aug 11, 2019
BEST ANSWER: You can use the Metzeler 888 on the front. However, I do not show we carry the correct size you would need for the Metzeler 880 for the rear.
