I just replaced the Metzeler 888 on the rear with a Michelin Commander II.
They say it gets more miles than its competitor, which would be the Metzeler.
My Metz picked up a nail recently and had to be replaced, same as the one before it.
I've talked to a lot of riders lately who just love their Michelins so I thought why not! It was also about $25 cheaper than the Metzelers.
Now if my back would get better, I'll get out there and try it.
