What I have found on my 1800 front tire is a wavy kinda line around the whole tire on both sides. It sort of reminds me of a recapped truck tire. I don't recall seeing it before. Is these normal on the Metzler tire. The tire looks good and has no out of run issues. Tread is over 50% good. It does have the famous cupping. I'm going to put on new stones this winter. Does anyone have a Metzler front tire to compare with. I'm just thinking safety as a priority. The dates on both tires is 0404 which is too old which is my understanding. Thanks Tony:waving:

Tony, I just looked at mine and there is no line. I know what you are describing, I've seen it on other tires. I have no desire to start a tire war but I really don't like the Metz. They grip well but cup easily and are noisy in turns.

Thanks Jack. I'm thinking on getting a new Bridgestone tomorrow just to be safe. Tony
