Great Tires!
Bought these tires for my bike and have been very happy with them. I bought them just before I took a 2000 mile ride. During the ride I hit water, snow, and dry pavement and was very happy with the performance. They grip great and still look brand new. I would recommend them!

Like the feel on the road
I have used Metzeler tires on my Harley's for more years than I care to remember. The last several years have been on the 888's. The feel of these tires on the road wet or dry is why I like them so much. I mount all my tires myself as well as tires for friends and friends of friends. When asked I recommend Metzeler. Just as a side note, I use Dyna Beads to balance my tires because I believe they add longevity and reduce cupping. I do wish I could get more mileage out of them especially on the rear. 7000 -7500 rear, 15,000 - 18,000 front

Durable & Trustworthy!
This tire has proven itself to be a quality 3-season tire in all conditions and road types. I'm running it on a 2015 Indian Roadmaster; neither a light nor nimble machine, yet this tire makes handling a breeze in all conditions and every reasonable riding condition. I've experienced this tire on everything from gravel to the superhighway, potholes to fresh asphalt, and sub-freezing temps to sweltering desert heat. As a basis of comparison, this is the third tire I've used this year on this bike, as I ride in excess of 15K miles annually and my first change-out was early in the season.

Definitely worth the investment, and reliable tires are ALWAYS a solid investment. I'll keep a replacement on hand to avoid interrupting a riding season due to a worn tire!

Good value.
Tires have good deep tread and we're soft and easy enough to mount myself. And they look good on my bike.

Amazing
These metzeler ME888 marathon ultra white walls are amazing on my 2006 Harley Davidson Road Glide FLTR/I

They are a night and day difference from the factory Dunlop’s that where on it. The ME888 handle so much better it feels like the entire suspension was adjusted and replaced. And in the rain they handled amazingly! I was on the highway and it started down pouring to the point I couldn’t see nor could the truck in front of me, so the truck started to slow down as expected.but these tires never allowed me to loose confidence at all there was zero concern! And there was a significant amount of water on the highway. I would highly recommended these tires to any Harley Davidson touring/Bagger owner. And they look great too being whitewalls and all.

If my rear tire now says Dunlop D402F 150/80 B16 71H what size is that in a metzeler 888?
Melissa O on Mar 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi there. Good question! For a rear Metzeler 888 that is appropriate for your question, I would suggest the 150/80-16 - Bias Ply - 77 - H - Reinforced. The 888 Metzeler comes in a front tire in that size that has the same load index rating of 71H that your Dunlop carries, but it looks like you're wanting a rear tire. The most important numbers to look for in a replacement from any manufacturer is the first three numbers in the sequence--in your case that is 150/80 16. 150 indicates the width of the inflated tire in millimeters, the 80 represents the height of the sidewall in relation to the tire's width (80% of 150 millimeters is the sidewall height), and 16 is the number of inches that the rim is in diameter, that the tire must seal up to in order to fit the rim. Thank you for the question, and good riding!!!
