I JUST BOUGHT MY THIRD METZELER 880 FOR THE BACK OF MY 2006 HONDA VTX 1300C. I HAVE HAD GOOD LUCK WITH BOTH FRONT AND REAR TIRES, THEY HANDLE WELL AND HOLD THE ROAD. I TEND TO RIDE ON THE HARD SIDE MOST OF THE TIME, UNLESS RIDING 2 UP, AND I HAVE NEVER NOT HAD CONFIDENCE IN MY TIRES CORNERING. I HAVE GOTTEN BETWEEN 10,000 TO 12,000 OUT OF MY TIRES, AND WHEN THESE ARE GONE, I WILL BUY THEM AGAIN. LOOKED AT 4 OR 5 OTHER SITES, FOUND ABOUT THE SAME PRICE ON ANOTHER SITE, BUT WOULD HAVE HAD TO PAY FOR SLOWER SHIPPING, HERE I GOT FREE 3 DAY, EMAIL WITH A TRACKING NUMBER SENT TO ME, AND ON TIME ARRIVAL FROM UPS, MAKING THIS SITE THE BEST DEAL AROUND. ORDERED LATE ON THURSDAY NIGHT, TIRE SHOWED AS PROMISED ON WEDNESDAY OVER LABOR DAY WEEKEND.

Wife has 2002 Yamaha. Tires were as bald as an eagle. So I did some research on tire brands. Looking for gummy tires with the greatest traction. So I settled on the ME 880's . I am so happy with my choice. As it turns out, while my wife was practicing left & right turns,( just finish motorcycle training with no real street exp.) stops & goes. She made a left hand turn from a complete stop. The road has a rather deep dip. I thought she was going down with the bike. She counter steered like a mad man. The bike handle like a charm. I said in my mind, 'WOW the tires really work. Not one sign of slipping. had the tire slipped just once, the bike would have gone down. These tires are a great choice. So what if I loss a few MPG on the road. This was the best $300.00 I've spent on the bike. The safety of my wife is paramount number 1. As soon as my Michelin tires wear out if not sooner, on my Kawasaki Vulcan 750. They will be getting a new pair of ME 880's. I've heard great stories about these tires. Now I'm one of them. Seeing is believing. I'm a true believer now. P.S. I was behind her when all this happen.
2nd one off these tires I purchased definitely better wear than the dunlops that come stock with the hd's... Mostly ride with passenger with combined total weight of 450 lbs.
I ordered online on sunday and they told me before purchase it would be delivered in three days, but I received it on the second day and the delivery was free.
Look at review from the front tire, very good traction on rough, grooved roads. Wet weather minimal, yet stills gives confidence that it will perform. You won't go wrong purchasing a set of these tires.
I actually do not list any 200/75-17 Tires we sell. You may want to double check your tire size and make sure it isn't in fact a 200/55-17 like this tire is.
