Brazilian Metzeler 880
I did a search on this before posting, nothing found.
I just mounted a Metzeler Marathon 880 160/70/B17 73h (made in Brazil, very recent mfg. date) on the back of my '07 650A. Inflated to 42 psi. When slowing to a stop (from about 17 mph to around 13 mph) I'm feeling a slight vibration.
I removed the rear wheel, double checked everything (balance, spacers, hardware, etc.) and found nothing amiss. Remounted wheel on bike, same vibration when slowing to a stop. I've only put about 20 miles on the bike since mounting the tire and the vibration is very slight.
I've read a few posts on other sites about issues with Brazilian-made Metzelers. Anyone have an issue with these?
