    Special Notes:

    • When selecting new motorcycle tires, be sure they meet the requirements of your motorcycle and its expected usage. Please use our vehicle drop down selector at the top of this page to assist you in choosing a tire for your vehicle.

      SAFETY

      Inspect and check tire pressure often. This is the most important tire-maintenance function you can perform. Refer to your machine's documentation for proper maintenance. Always give tires a gentle "run-in" period of 100 miles to get the feel of new tires--this means they should not be subjected to maximum power, abrupt lean-over, hard cornering, etc. Always match the front and rear tires for optimal handling, safety and performance. Mixing radials, or mixing radials with bias or belted-bias tires, may adversely affect handling and stability.

      WARNING

      The charts and information on this page do not imply interchangeability. Consult your machine's manual to determine correct replacements, clearances, compatibility and stability, load-bearing capacity, speed rating, radial vs. non-radial, pattern and tread compound requirements, inflation recommendations and front-to-rear tire matching. Wrong selection can result in tire failure or loss of control with serious injury or death.

      ROADTEC™ 01 is the latest evolution in Metzeler touring tires. With a focus on enhancing grip on wet and low friction surfaces, increased mileage, and a high degree of adaptability to different motorcycles, riding styles, and conditions, the ROADTEC™ 01 provides modern solutions to past and future needs. HWM front tire version has the same number of plies (2) as the standard version, and the target is achieved by employing stiffer carcass material and sidewall construction plus a slightly different compound recipe.
    • INCREASED GRIP ACROSS A WIDE RANGE OF RIDING ENVIRONMENTS
      The employment of completely new tread design, enhancing mechanical grip coupled with compounds evolved from those of tests-winner ROADTEC™ Z8, allows for increased confidence and feeling while riding in any condition.
    • EXTENDED MILEAGE & PERFORMANCE CONSISTENCY
      New profile (larger and shorter contact patch) in combination with improved compounds ensure extended performance and tire life.
      Tread design, superficially groove geometry and positioning, ensure long lasting performance.
    • ENHANCED PRECISION AND RIDING COMFORT
      Structural elements, the fine tuning and METZELER INTERACT™ technology, promote adaptive and predictable behavior across a wide range of motorcycles and riding situations.

    A winner!
    Metzler has been a tire I've used since the '80's. Keep coming back to it time and time again. The Roadtec 01 is one that leads the way right now with the HWM option for the FJR1300

    Good tire life
    I used this for 6000 miles. Best mileage of all I have used on my FJR. Still had another 2000 left I believe but bought and installed new set since I had a 2000 mile trip coming up in a few weeks and the rear was worn a bit more.
