Metzeler Sportec M5 Interact feedback please
Hey guys, I'm nearing the end of the life span on my my rear Michelin Road 2 and have heard that the M5's can get as much as 5k miles, even on a ZX14. Admittedly I don't have the opportunity to scrape the edges on my normal spririted runs but want good performance in both grip and tread life. I tend to unintentionally block my rears well before the edges are worn due to too many straight line blasts and dirtbike like right foot and laying on the rear brake too strong. So, what are your experiences with Metzeler Sportec M5 Interacts? Can I really get 5k plus miles out of a set? Performance and grip good?
I must say, I have been quite pleased with my 2ct front and Road 2 rear. I have approx 3k on the rear and its just now getting close to the wear bars. The front however has 5k and looks great.
