Default New Tire - Metzeler ME880

Put on a new Metzeler ME880 170/60-17 to replace the bald Dunlop 160/70-17.

The new tire feels great. like I'm riding a much sportier, sure-footed bike. I also think it looks better than the Dunlop with a lower looking profile and wider.

The front tire was replaced with a ME880 a couple months ago, so this fresh rubber is nice!

I have the stock dunlops that came with my 08 FXDC, and was wondering if a different set of tires would cure the road snake thing!

Switched to Metzs as well and it was a big improvement over the Dunlops in handling.
