I'm getting ready to order a set of tires for my '93 K1100LT and have been looking at the Metzler ME 550 rear/ME 330 front combination. Anyone tried the 550 before? I currently have a 330 on the front, 880 on the rear which gave me pretty good mileage (10k). I noticed the 550 as being advertised as a "sport-touring" tire which appealed to me, but I'm not interested if it lasts as long as the Metronic 55A. (I got between 4-5k on the two I went through when I first got the bike.)
Feedback from anyone who has used or heard anything about the 550 would be appreciated.
