Slick, I assume you're talking about a ME880 rear tire,... what is the width, & load rating of the new 18" tire you're talking about? Perhaps a 150 with a higher load rating around 850 or 900? I just ordered some 18x3.5" Weld wheels from Hogpro (great folks to deal with BTW) with 140 Metzlers front and rear. I probably would've gone with a 150 rear had the load rating been at least what the 140 was (803 lb).SLICK02 said:Rocket, RDKING sent ya to the right place to get the answer to your question, and there is another piece of data that I have just learned about this weekend at Bikeweek as a result of my brother having words with Metzler about tire wear, METZLER will have a new touring 18" tire due out the rep said either the 23rd or 24th of this month, and Millers custom parts of DAYTONA will have 4 of them right of the bat, bro and I will have two of them and there will be two more to be had, George Miller said he will be stocking them though, so they can be obtained, they are suppose to yield 8-10 k miles and still have handeling that METZLER is known for, I do not have a p/n for the tire but if you call George I am sure he will know what you are talking about, hope this helps.
