Metzeler Roadtec 01 - Long Life & Great Traction

Pleased to report amazing tire tread life with the new Metzeler Roadtec 01.

I suspect that a lot of this life has to do with the Mupo shock keeping the tire well connected to the road surface.

Anyway, this tire will last a very long time.

Attached is a giant photo for your close look.

2,200 with some of the mold lines still on there? That's pretty good.

Nice! How does the rear tire look? Constant twisty roads are great for even tire wear. But super slab is not so easy on rear tire unless you keep speeds low.
(under 65 mph)

To me the real attraction of the M-01 is the super sticky sporty front tire.
Does it warm up quick in cold weather? I know, hard to test this time of year, but I know race tires take a while to heat up.

The OEM tires heat up fast, but don't have the ultimate side grip STICK that the Metzelers do.

Metzeler side down!

That is the rear tire.

The Roadtec 01 is designed for cold and wet use. Warm-up isn't an issue.

OE tires at about 3,000 miles and the OE rear shock. Might have been 3,700 miles.

Might note the wear to the edge of the tread/sipes on the Metzeler, yet a safety margin left beyond. Very pleased with the grip on every surface other than leaned over on wet wide tar snakes. The tire instantly regained traction once off the wet tar.

I mis-read your first tire pic ... :roll eyes: For a rear that Metzeler looks good for 2200 miles. Gonna have to try out one of these in future!

Why I selected the Roadtec 01 tire.
