Replaced new Mich commander II with ME888
08 Street Glide. With Mich commander 2 I never felt comfortable with everyday riding. Harder compounds made it terrible in rain and slipped in corners even after warmed up. May be last longer for long haul riders but I have way more confidence with the ME888.

Metezler ME888
Have been using Metzeler tires for several years on my 2006 Honda VTX1800/R. Usually last about 1 year (6-7K miles), given the large/heavier bike. Even with the somewhat shorter lifespan for the tires, overall, really pleased with the brand

Great tire and a good price. Fast shipping as always. Can't rate it yet but if it's like the set I put on my Ultra it will do great!

Top of the line
One of the best tires you can buy for your bike in my opinion. I own a bike shop and I put alot of tires on and I also ride alot. I have tried almost every other brand of tire but always come back to the 888.

Best tires for the price
I’ve been putting these tires on for years. They have good grip without given up mileage.

Not just a great touring tire, its a great tire!
I have run through a couple sets of 888 marathons, they are a great tire for a big cruiser/touring bike. I have been thoroughly impressed with the wet handling and grip they have, even better the commander 2 tires I had. The rear tires have been giving me over 10K miles on my HD Road King, which I have been really happy with. (Heavy bike, heavy rider, heavy throttle hand)
