    The article I read said 5% better mileage and better performance. WOW
    The Goldwing guys like it
    Unfortunatly the sale ended last night they sold 22 tires.
    With 79 veiws and 1 reply I’d say nobody’s tried it in our 9 family
    I will stick with metzler!

    I have the E3 250 and I love it .
    The thing I like more is that the tire has the entire tread surface touching against the pavement , so , traction is enormous , compared to my previous OEM E3 240 which was touching the pavement only at the middle center of the tire , consequently the traction was minimum and very poor at best and it wear very fast ... it last me only 4,500 miles and by then , the middle center of the tire was completely bold .
    Also it has very deep treads , i like that very much .

    I'm on my fourth E III and it will need to be replaced some time this year. I may consider the E IV. Especially if the IV is replacing the III. In any event, no more metzeler for me. Cost way more and don't last half as long. NO THANKS!

    Icing on the cake is that the Dunlop 250 is wider than the metzeler 260. LOL!

    My understanding is that they intend to replace the E3 with the E4 as they ramp up production of the E4 and start offering it in more sizes.

    My Magnum had E3's stock. I changed out the rear for the E4. It is a lot better tire than the E3 was. It has a more round profile, better wet and dry traction, and is supposed to last longer. The E4 has a tread pattern that I like better as well. So far I am getting more even wear out of it. I'm hoping they bring out a 21" for the front of my Magnum so I can get the E4 on the front too.

    I have E4's on my Victory, front and rear. Far far better then the stock E3's that it came with. Great traction, handles awesome in the rain and dry, and at 5k miles they look brand new. Put Avons on Mary's 109 as the E4 wasn't out yet in the 250. Once her Avons are done, may go back to the E4 if she doesn't get good miles out of them. However, the price on Denniskirk is 300+ for the tire and I am seeing elsewhere for 260. That is a lot more than the E3.

    Damn, I was paying about $326 for the front and rear in the E3's

    Or switch to the 280 at those prices

    Yep. The cobras are a lot cheaper and Mary absolutely loves them. Just curious to see how many miles we get out of them before seeing what to do but I am not playing those prices for the E4.

    Good find. I am sure that as the stock is up and everyone starts buying them the price will have to drop down to around that for most sellers.

    Well, after getting my B-King out for the first time yesterday, I can tell you it will need a new rear tire well before the M109R does. I'll be riding it more today, as it is already in the 70's before noon. May end up needing that new rear next weekend. Maybe there will be a E IV in the correct size?

    Yeah I wont be either. If she is getting close to what the E3 are getting in mileage I would make a change also. Im getting 12k ish out of the E3 so far.

    I did get the E4 at the sale price
    Im glad that Sean and Bigpapa like them
    I've used almost all the different tires s since Ive
    had my bike and a few others even Shinko
    I don't ride them till they are totally gone.
    I like fresh rubber back and front.
    Thanks for all who responded was just
    wondering about the E4. At 327 a tire now
    the E3 is a great way to go.Jerry

    I had a Avon cobra rear,it lasted quite a while,I could tell no difference in ride or handling of the Elite3s. Only drawback for the Avon,just not as meaty as the Dunny,I have Elite4 on the front,love it,better tread pattern,turns better too.

    I am giving my opinion on the E 4 tires for all that responded to my post!
    Took my good tires off put the E 4s on have gone at least 1000 miles.
    They turn great. They are better than the E 3s I was amazed in the difference turning wise
    and —— I got 75 dollar rebate. Got the 250r for 150.00 the front for 177.00
    and Dunlop sent me the 75.00 check . And still have a good set of tires!

    Hogan, is that $150 with the $75.00 rebate? So original price was $225.00? Where did you purchase? Is this rebate only available to US citizens? I can get 250/40/18 for $241.37 Canadian Funds at Fortnine.ca free shipping.

    Also, As the Elite 3 (250) had a flare of rubber on the outer edge of the tire, thus making it a bit chubby to get past the swing arm, but would pass with a bit of foot kicking assistance........ :)

    The Elite 4 does not have this flare out. Therefore the tire glides past the swing arm points easily, has anyone considered an Elite 4 (260) ? ? ?

    Would you be able to glide past the swing arm entry point or with a bit of foot assistance get it to fit?

    Thanks all.

    The company I bought the back tire from had a sale It was 150.00 $ I got lucky
    bought one .They sold out that night I guess they had 20 to sell
    Bought the front tire from RevZilla Then I went to Dunlop tires rebates
    turned my invoices in on line. They sent me 75.00 dollars
    Have not looked for tires since but. RevZilla. Or Chapperal motorsports had best deal
    back then. Could be Dennis Kirk today but not looking have plenty of tires!!

    Is the elite 4 as ‘wide’ as the elite 3? I Like the wider look of elite 3 250 in comparison to Metz 260...

    The Metzeler 260 has a more rounded profile. Dunlop has a flatter profile. With the Dunlop being flatter, it ends up being wider when mounted.

    Stitch, If you go to the manufacture web site and check the dimensions/specs on tires you will find that they all vary in size such as width & Height. All tire sizes have a range in which they can be manufactured. I posted the size difference between a E3 250 and a Metz 260 and in fact the E3 is made wider than the Metz260. I searched but could not find the post.

    Yes I have tis tyre on my 109. Not sure if it is the K&N air filters but now it lights up a lot more than the previous tyre I had on the rear, and tyre pressure is correct

    I have a 280 on a 10” wheel and the 2 piece swing arm. It is possible to
    run a 280 on an 10” wheel with the stock swing arm, but tire changes are
    a little more challenging. There are YouTube videos showing how to do it.
