or is it best to pay a bit more and go with the standard metzeler feelfree tyre

jodders1, myself and UK WING are currently riding on Metzeler feelfree tyres (rear in my case), i could not get any Wintec's as my local dealer cannot seem to get them. Iam happy enough with this tyre after 2000mls. If you can get the Wintecs, great, look forward to your experiance with them let us know what you think. I changed from Hoops after only getting 6500mls from the rear I hope to get a lot more from the FeelFree. Smile

I had the Wintecs on my Burgman 650 before and was very happy with this.
I think end of the next summer i will replace my Hoops (?) regardless their conditions and will fit the wintecs again

My Silver Wing has the Feel Free Wintech, on wet roads are the best ever. Wintech all year round, even in summer.

I just looked and don't see Wintec on them,but they are good on wet roads.It doesn't snow in Florida often so these are good for here.I looked for a price on them and found a place for $60.

My BMW C650GT has Metzler Feel Free tires (OEM). I like them, very good in the wet and work very well with the ABS. I've dared a hard hit on the brakes on a wet street a couple of times and found the ABS to work excellently. With the ABS and good performing tires it takes a lot of worry about the possibility of a panic stop.

I think "Wintec" Winter tires by law requirement in Germany-----different compound reacting differently in cold. Probably fine in all temps but would wear out more quickly as soft compound.

I put a matched set of plain Feel Free on my 400 Burgman---found no increase in performance/wear over OEM. Burgman not very good handling, pushed---ridden as putt putt ok. SilverWing with solid mount engine and less unsprung weight, much better, but never forget, it, too is scooter

I've been working to wear off the chicken strips on my Metzlers. Having a lot of ground clearance with slightly larger wheels helps that process.

Got new set of Metzeler Feelfree Wintec tyres and Dr Pulley 24g sliding rolls today, drove back home for a mile and it started to snow. This should be a very long and warm spring in Scandinavia by long term forecast, but it seems that they´ve made a grand mistake. Where can I complain?

My 2005 had OEM Bridgestones when I bought it. I put on the Metzler Feelfree when it came time to replace them. I was very impressed with ride quality and overall performance. I never rode in the rain with them. With the ABS I never had a problem stopping. I got 10,000 km front and rear. They wrre getting down when the driver of the crewcab pick-up decided to pull the illegal U-turn. No amount of braking would have prevented that crash.
My 2007 has the OEM tires ( 3900 miles). No blemish or age related issues with them. They are performing well, but I am shopping for the Metzlers already.
Jay.

I bought a pair of Metzeler Feelfree Wintecs late last year for my Silver Wing. The grip and wet weather performance is very good but some cupping is now becoming evident.

What has put me off buying them again is the amount of runout. Modern tyres can be made better than this

Spinning either wheel and viewing from the side shows irregularities that are quite noticeable - e.g. the front wheel has a "flat spot" near the valve yet I've never locked up the brakes (ABS). The rear tyre also doesn't run very true and the surface looks very lumpy and bumpy as it spins slowly.

However these are not great amounts, but my 19 inch motorcycle tyres run perfectly true so why don't these scooter tyres?

I do get a small amount of steering wobble, but it's barely noticeable for now and my head bearings are fine.

Basically, good grip and wet performance, but I'll be looking at other brands next time.
