Hi again

Just been advised by the suppier supplying both BridgeStone and Dunlop that there is no stock of the rear wheel tyre for my wing in South Africa. They can offer me a Metzler Tyre but I don't know this tyre.

Can anyone in the forum please let me know if this tyre is known and if it is, is it a good Brand to put on my wing as a rear tyre?

Thanks

Colin Wagner

You will hear both good and bad about Metzler.

I do know that the wing is more responsive in the cornerswith a Metzler.:action:

If they don't have the 180-60-16 for your Wing, You may want to try the 180-70 ZR 16, Bridgestone Exedra. It is just slightly taller and performs well. The Dunlot EIII 180-70 will work also but I like the performance of the Bridgestone. Have happily warn out several sets!
The 180-70 is listed for the HONDA VTX 1800. Tire choice is quite an opinion and choice.
