I have metzler 880's, I like them a lot.

When you clean your white wall, put some vegi oil on a rag and wipe them down with a thin coating on the tire, it will keep them whiter longer!

If I ever put whites back on and Michelin still does not make one, I would go with Avons, or the 880s.

Re:Whitewall tire suggestions 5 Years, 5 Months ago  
I'm on my last Shinko 777 WWW front tire, the rear was good when new but didn't last me very long and was gone at a little over 2k, now on my second front Shinko and just back from a 1400 mile trip and the front is scalloped pretty bad (tire has 4800) and it didn't do it till this trip but the bike was heavy-laden with two up luggage and full saddlebags. I love the way the WWW's look on my bike but my next front will be the same as the rear a Michelin Commander II. I have run the ME 880's and the Cruisemax's and was happy with both and they got around the same mileage, the bike had Conti Milestone's on it when I bought it and although they were half gone they rode nice also but I can't say anything on mileage of those tires. I will note that I live in the mountains and that is hard on tires so others are getting much better mileage than I do.
