Tire lasted: don't know yet
Would buy again: no
This is my second front tyre from Metzeler - the first one was out-of-round and not straight, this one, the second one, is not straight and moves 5 mm from side to side. The Metzeler reps and the tyre shop who fitted the tyre say that the tyre is fine and there is nothing wrong with it - however it does not feel 'straight'. Apparently because this is a German made tyre there can be nothing wrong with it. The quality control from Metzeler is poor and they have not been able to tell me what their tolerance levels are for their tyres. Would not buy again in a pink fit. Sure, they look great and really made a huge difference to the appearance of the bike, however tyres do need to perform a primary function and looks are secondary.
