That's a lot , congrats !

28k on my 2013.

Need to start shopping for front tire #4.

Which front tire do you recommend for longest wear life ?

Or, overall satisfaction ?

Thanks in advance.

Try a Shinko.. thats what i'm running now after my original front tire wore at 9k.. less expensive and handles just as good or better than stock.

I can't speak to longevity, but I like how the ME888's run.

The Shinko is looking pretty good and the price about 1/2. Positive reviews. Made in Korea.

The OEM Metzeler ME880 (not 888) should be monitored closely or replaced. More than 1 Fury rider including me at 4k miles developed sudden bubbles / separation. Made in Brazil.


My current Michelin Com 2 looked and rode good but is wearing way too quick and losing 2# pressure a week. Made in Thailand.

Replacing tires was one of the first things I did when I got my bike. Ended up going with the shinko 777 on the front and 005 (in 240) on the rear. Not uncommon for me to scrape pegs on a few corners on my way to and from work. I've also had to lock up the brakes due to dumb cagers, even though I was skidding a bit it still felt controlled.

I just crossed 30,000 miles on my 2015. I ride on Avon Cobras, like the way they handle, so I sacrafice mileage replacing them every ~10,000 miles. Got the 240 on the back.

Just replaced my ME888 240 on the rear with a Dunlop 200 after my shop gave me some BS story about the bead 'failing' on the rear. Since it didn't look all that much different I went for the 200 and it handles better. Let's see how long it lasts.

Count me among those who had tire delamination with a Metzeler. Felt like I had a flat with the front fwapping around while I was underway, pulled over, did a visual and checked pressure, both seemed fine. Turns out a hand-sized bubble had formed on the front and was hitting the fender - no more Metzelers for me.

I have just over 10,000 on mine. On my second set of Metzlers, the 880's and the old style, i bought the 888, rode great all summer/fall.
