I've tried to tell y'all how tuf those Metzelers are! That's a Metzeler Sahara, like on my dual sport.

I had the Metzeler ME 880 turn a nail crossways in the tread. That's what I'm looking for in a tire!

I honestly believe it would've turned it. I was looking my (Metzeler) tires over a year or so ago, and I saw what looked like a wire crossways in one of the tread grooves. I took the needlenose and started pulling at it, and it turned out to be a nail about 2 inches long. It had gone staight in, hit the belts, and turned crossways through the tread.

I pulled it out and ran the tire til it was time to replace it.

We all have to be comfortable with our tires, so I understand other peoples'preferences fortheir brand. I won't run anything else now. I did a lot of research before I started running Metzelers, and I chose them for the traction and construction. Being fairly bulletproof is something I discovered afterwards.

Of all the things I wish for in life, a flat tire on a motorcycle AIN'T one of 'em! :dude:
