    Comment: Awesome touring tire, outstanding cornering wet or dry they don't list the 1500 Kawi on the fitment, go up one size from stock to 160/80HBx16 fits great looks awesome. 28K on the last one, always keep tire pressure up, these baby's last.

    Outstanding wear

    Comment: The ME 880s on my 600VLX Honda have over 12,000 miles on them and look to have about 50% tread left. Highly recommended.

    200 on a VTX1800?

    Comment: The 200x60x16 fits my VTX1800 C just great. I did have to trim the fender rails a bit because I lowered it 1". So the tire goes up in it more than usual causing it to rub on the outside edges of the tire.

    Jafrum is Best for Metzelers

    Comment: I've been running ME-880's on my 2000 FXSTS since the stock rubberer was replaced. get about 8K on the rears and 10-12K on the fronts. Excellent tires, and Jafrum is nearly 100% of the time best for price with free shippiing.

    Great Tire

    Comment: I just put on my second rear tire after about 17K miles on my 05 Harley Heritage Softail. I'm very satisfied with the feel and performance. Jafrum was great to deal with. They even physically confirmed it was in stock when they only showed one in the inventory.

    Great Tire

    Comment: Bought my first set in 2005 for my 04 1300 VTX C. Now in 2012 and 40,000 miles later, I have bought my second set. This brand of tire is fantastic. Great ride quality. Handles wonderful in the rain and I have had no problems with them. I alway keep the PSI at 40 front and back.

    Great tire, good price

    Comment: I put it on my 08 Electa Glide, and the handling so far is so much better than the stock tire I had on and had to keep replacing 2-3 times a year. I'm hoping this tire will last longer than the Dumlops I spent so much to keep a rear tire on this bike. I didn't give it a five because I don't know how it will handle in the rain or if it will last longer than Dunlops.

    Good tire.

    Comment: I've had a few Metz Marathon 880 rear tires on my old K bike. In over 150,000 miles I've had a few different brands and always got the best mileage with the Marathons. No complaints about traction or handling. Good choice in my opinion. Just ordered one for my new K bike.



    Back to the Marathons

    Comment: Just received mine today. Jafrum's price was the best I found for this tire. Tire said "Made in Brazil." Hope it's OK. I used to run Marathons made in Germany and they always gave me more miles with no complaints about traction or handling.
