    Default Avon or Metzler

    Does anyone have Avon tires on your bike? Looking at running a 280 rear and 21 front. Shopping Metzlers however have a great offer on set of Avon’s.

    Avon front and rear, brilliant tyres, found Metzler gave very poor mileage.

    I’ve had experience with both brands on my 9s, and I have found the Avon tires to be equivalent to the Metzeler tires in every aspect...quality, performance, handling, grip, and mileage. In my opinion, it merely comes down to brand preference, because one brand is not superior to the other. You’re getting a top-notch, great-performing tire with both the Avon and Metzeler brands.

    I haven't run the new 888 Metz, but I have run the old 880 version. I was pleased with the tire and actually bought another one, but Metz had some issues with the tire sidewalls cracking and a lot of people got screwed with the tire becoming unusable and no help or assistance was offered from Metz. I returned it and went Avon cobra and have been on it for about 2 years. It's been a fantastic tire, I just picked up the new Avon cobra chrome and will be mounted it over the winter.
