Local dealer's having a sale on these- both mid/soft, and mid/hard compounds. Before I spring for a couple- anyone here have any experience with the Metzeler MC360? MXA did a test on the mid/soft a few months ago and they seemed to have good things to say about them. Personally, have not used Metzeler since the '70's.

Let me say that I am an old slow fat guy first. I rode on mine for the first time last Friday at Milestone. It seems to be a pretty decent tire. Now I will say that the track was tacky so traction was not hard to find. It seemed to stick pretty well on the dry stuff later in the day. I don't regret buying the tire at all. I would never be able to push it fast enough to tell the difference between a MX3S and this tire. I do know that the Dunlop was starting to loose grip after about 15 hours for me. I would guess a fast expert would eat up a Dunlop by 8-10 hours.

Capt,
Did you use the mid/soft or mid/hard version?

It's a 2,800 mile road trip from Rancho, unfortunately.

I believe that WPS has been having a huge sell off to their shops on Metzler tires.

Derp, I see your sig as Los Angeles.

I used the mod soft. I got it at RMATV and was about $15 cheaper than a Dunlop. Before Christmas they seemed to be $20 or so cheaper.

You’re right. The dealer said their distributor was offering a nice deal on Metzeler’s for February

My dealer has $100 ft/rear 110/90x19 if I buy 5 sets at a time. They are an in-house Pirelli by the way and perform just as good as their 32 series with 11lbs of air.
