WoW!! Metzler RoadTec Z6 Tires ROCK!!

I have been researching the latest "ST" tires to replace my old Dunlop SportMax. I chose the Metzlers over the Pilot Road and Avons for no real reason since I found no conclusive reviews of any of the latest "sport-touring" tires for grip.

I am glad I got the Z6s! They have great feedback! Stick like glue, steer quicker and hopefully will last 6000miles+. more comfortable too.

The Z6s are softer and gummier when given the stick-your-fingernail-in- them test. Softer than Dunlop 207, 208, 208GP, Pilot Sport and whater is on the 04 R1.

Re: WoW!!

i just put a Z6 on the front, replacing a worn Z4 that got punctured. the back is still a Z4, as it only has a little over 1k miles on it. steering is faster with no deteriation in stability and braking is much improved. of course some of the difference is because the tire is new, but, as memory serves, the Z4 steered slower when new.
