Been using this tire for both front and rear for 25 years. They handle great, fantastic on wet roads, and you get a fair amount of miles out of them (comparably speaking). Just make sure you get a fresh one and not a tire that's been sitting on the shelf for five years. I purchased two of these before this last one and they both dry rotted on the side wall within a year. Check the date codes which are available on the Metzeler web site. If they're old send them back.

The newest materials and compound technology combined with a classic tread pattern to enhance the performance of your bike.
- Compound with high Silica developed for outstanding grip both in dry and in wet enhancing riding performance.

- "Classic" tread pattern design ensuring effective water dispersal for safe wet riding and wear regularity with long-lasting mileage.
Multiple Radius Contour: Engineering technology for contour design dedicated to high performance riding. The contour curvature is differentiated between crown and shoulder area, in order to provide most intuitive and effective handling and grip characteristics. The crown and shoulder areas feature a sharper radius for faster and more precise handling (crown) and safer stability limit feedback (shoulder). A wider radius characterizes the side area, ensuring a larger contact patch for cornering stability.
Metzeler Belt System: "Metzeler Belt System" is the patented technology by Metzeler for the diagonal belt on cross-ply tires. This modular-like construction technology really allows tuning each single size to the specific needs of the bikes for superior stability. This means that weight and performance of the tires are specifically developed for the more traditionally styled yet powerful bikes, enhancing their dynamic performance.
