Once again, Metzeler shows its commitment to the V-twin market by
introducing the ME880 in alphanumeric sizes. With the same light
handling, smooth, quiet rolling characteristics and wet performance of
the ME880, these mileage-proven sizes are perfectly matched, original
replacement equipment for your Harley-Davidson.

For many years, Metzeler has been supporting its dealers and interacting
with consumers at events across North America. All of this experience
of working with thousands of Metzeler users has brought one major point to
the surface: Metzeler users need to understand the importance of the tire
pressures suggested by the company to reap all of the benefits engineered
into the ME880 lineup. We have found that many consumers are running
their tires under inflated and below our suggested minimums.
The fitment data in this brochure not only helps you find the ME880’s for
your particular motorcycle, it also give  you the miniumum and maximum air pressures suggested by Metzeler based on hundreds of hours of testing.

Finally, running air pressures near the maximum as listed on the sidewall of  the tires will reward the consumer with higher mileage and increased overall satisfaction with our product.
