    Hi All I was just about to buy some Metzeler Sahara Enduro 3 tyres for the XR as it is what a mate has on his bike but then it occured to me that i should ask what peoples opinions are on here first? I had a similar tyre on my 650 years ago but can't for the life of me remember what they were. I...

    Hi! My SLR is shod with a nice pair of Metzeler Tourances, but I don't know what the pressures should be. The Metzeler site says: Front: 1.5 bar (21 psi +/-) Rear: 2 bar (29 psi +/-) But that makes the front feel like a deflated beachball on fast, tight corners. What pressures should I...

    I've just bought an AT today, it needs new tyres.. I've done a search on here and found a bit of info and seems the Metzeler tourances are a good choice? I will be doing mostly road but hope to do some off road too, I do have plans for a euro on/off road trip at some point but at the moment...

    I have always ran the Metzeler Enduro 3 Sahara on my bike, but now Metzeler in their wisdom have decided to stop making that tire in size 140 80 17, argh!!! Each week I blast up the A9 in Scotland for 2 hours to get away to the highlands, but I also use the bike on greenlanes. I found the...

    Back in the days when I had a BMW F650 (A "Mk1" type from the first year of manufacture) I used to have (I think) the standard pairing of Metzeler 33 and 55 tyres on it. They were road tyres, no doubt about it, but very good. A friend tells me these were superseded by the 330 and 550 as a...

    Have any of you used Metzeler Sahara 3 tyres on the AT? I feel like a change from the Tourances and it's either that or the Continental Escapes. What do you recon?

    Just fitted another pair of Metzeler Tourance's to my TA. Last pair did 17,000 miles:D I will post some pictures when I find my camera cable coz off the bike the wear is amazing - the weirdest profile. I am surprised I could corner at all:rolleyes: Anyway, main point is I wrote to...

    After a long wait I've finally gotten some Karoos and will soon be slapping them on. However, they do appear to be a wee bit more knobbly than the Tourances they replace and I've just checked the Metzeler website and downloaded a pdf which says they're designed for 10% onroad and 90% offroad...
