Metzeler Z8s anyone??
« on: November 15, 2013, 08:42:26 PM »
Had these on my previous bike and loved them.

They now do a specific 'O' rating rear for the Trophy, BMW K1600 etc.

Anyone running them??

I like Metzelers but they are too darned expensive. I went with the Michelin PR3 and find them to be excellent

I think my last wheel on my Speed was the Z8 interact. Is the same size of Trophy.
Mounted both 270€ complete.

When the time comes, I am going to try the Metzlers, had the 880's on my old Concours and loved them, got great mileage out of them and they handled well, would expect the same out of the Z-8's

Z8s are radials while the 880s were bias ply renowned for great tyre life.  I have only tried the Z6s on the ST1100 and they were a good tyre with average life and grip, which is pretty good these days.  They should be more like the PR3s than the 880s. And the Z8s are expensive here too and not stocked by many dealers.
