I installed this rear tire about 6k miles ago... I have never had a tire that feels as slippery as this one... has anyone else tried this tire? They said its suppose to be their heavy duty rated tire... but I don't like the way it rides... I think I will be going back to the Metzler 160/80/16... it has better traction... that is if I don't go to the dark side this time...

That's what they are saying about the Metzler 77H... it is wearing good, I just don't like the feel if it... I had to perform a very fast stop the other day, one that I would normally take without issue, and this tire didn't take it too well... it slid on me... talk about a pucker factor!
