The Metzeler Tourance patented 0° steel belt technology on front and rear tyre provides great straight lane and braking stability, maximum precision in curve and excellent bump absorbtion performances also in full loaded conditions. Improved compound for high grip on wet and dry surfaces: the perfect combination for long distance journeys. New tread pattern design engineered to ensure best on-road performances in all weather conditions.
Handling and grip
Lower mileage than expected
Difficult to change out
The Metzeler Tourance front tire was rated higher than the rear tire. Overall people like the handling and grip. The Metzeler Tourance provides a very controlled feeling and sticks well to the road. The control comes at the expense of mileage for some. There were pretty consistent complaints that mileage was lower than expected.

Perfer Michelin Anakee over the Tourance. The Tourance is hard to change out. Others prefer the Tourance for the steel belt/durability.
