    20170813_152053 (2).jpg Also a new rear tire
    The Metzeler Roadtec 01
    The Metzeler Roadtec Z8 was worn after 6500 km (4000 miles) :(:confused::eek:
    Just got back from a holiday motor trip through Europe

    I'm wondering how many km I can make with the 01
    Normally I drive with Michelin tires

    Every time I look at the O1 I see a flat profile that says good longevity, very stable, good rain dispersion but a bit flat y'know ? Like Holland compared to Scotland . no ups downs and excitement

    Just finished my first Roadtec at 10,400 mi. Admittedly a very conservative rider. Old and plan on getting a lot older.

    I spooned a set of 01 Roadtec's on my '16 RS. Waiting to see how they hold up. 2500 miles so far. What brand is your hugger and how do you like it?

    Just finished off my Roadtec 01s at 6500 miles. Average speed of only 49 mph but lots of turns and handfuls of brakes and throttle.

    Andy my thought's exactly look a bit flat.Just on the last of my Z8 and not sure what to fit next looking for something sporty.Have rode demo bikes when mines been in and not keen on PR4s they don't turn in as well as Z8s.But not happy with front end grip in wet with Z8s.

    I am thinking about the Avon Spirit ST. Seems to be quite a newcomer.
