I have just completed a trip on Metzeler's new tires. The ME888 Ultra Marathon. In the wet, of which I had two days worth, they were fantastic. In the dry,fantastic! In the corners, double fantastic, very sticky! My last set of Dunlop's, the ones that came on the bike, were changed at 16,300 k.m.'s. The front was worn, to the wear bars, and the rear had about 25% left. I put a new set on. Seems to be the same pattern with this set as well. I'd say they are about 50% worn, front and rear. I really put them through their paces though. Rode an abundance of really twisty roads, at higher speeds, in very hot temperatures. Had no issues dragging the pegs at will. Tried raising rear preload, to no avail. I see that I'm not even close to the edge of the tread front or back. Will I buy another set? I'd say yes! Unless, I could try a set of the new Dunlop's for less money.
