Metzeler ME888 MARATHON Ultra tire set is the great choice for Gold Wing 1800A owners. This set includes a taller rear tire that will fix the speedometer issue and bring your Gold Wing as close as possible to true GPS speed(+/- 1-3 MPH). The extra tire height will also provide extra tire contact patch which will improve handling and performance.
Metzeler ME888 MARATHON Ultra is the best partner for long and safe travelling on cruiser, tourers and their custom versions.
To achieve this targets, Metzeler designers finely combined the specifications which determine the characteristics of tires: profile, structure, tread pattern and compound.
The structure shape features a flat and wide geometry that conveys and dissipates toward the sidewall the stress generated under the footprint, reducing the fatigue and the wear process.
To increase wear regularity, the transversal grooves of the tread pattern are discontinued by ‘compound bridges’, resulting in a more solid and stiffer tread design that reduces the stress transmitted to the belts and carcass plies. Also the edges of grooves are critical areas for wear regularity. ME888 groove walls have different inclination to ensure the best operating angle in every position.
The polymers of the compound are abrasion resistant, providing higher resistance to wear and hence high mileage.
