Any thought out there on the Metz, 888? Replacing the tires on my FXDSE.

Run Forrest, run!  Pick something else!

  To put in my two pennies worth,....this is the first for me running Michelins and I've got to say at this point I'm liking them.
I find the bike feels and handles so much better. With the Dunlops it was like I was having to work the bike so much so that I would start getting a pain across the back of my shoulders and neck after a while, I thought it was due to the handlebars and was considering going for a change over.
Since I've had the Michelins on I haven't had any shoulder and neck pain problems don't know why but it's just an easier noticeable ride now. Just saying they work for me.
  I was thinking of the  Michelins myself , they sure make a big diff. on a car, what size ya go with  , I have a 2010 cvo S G , its got 18's on front and back think, like to stick to the same hieght :drummer:

When they stopped making the ME880's, I tried these and didn't care for them. They didn't seem to have the same grip and feel as the 880s.

However, I switched to the Cruisetec tires and have been pleased with those. They grip and feel much more like the 880s.

I don't think you'll be disappointed.  My old Road Glide has gone though several rears and a few fronts.  It's my go-to choice.  Don't give it even a second thought.  The only down-side to them is not in their use or handling but in their installation; and this only applies if you're installing your own.  The sidewalls are stiffer than others so they're a bit more hassle to get mounted.

Well after 3 of the Elites on the rear, I just mounted up my first try with the Commander. We will see how they compare on my bike with my riding. Only way I know how to make a decision on what works best for me.

Unless you are using the special Harley Davidson revision 72 square tire wheel.

Almost sounds like we are starting to describe the stock Harley Dunlop after 5000 miles.
