Hi all
I know there are several tire threads but I'm hoping for a quick answer from someone with a similar issue without sorting through the various discussions.

I'm doing 99% of my riding at highway speeds on pavement with approx 15,000 Klm - 18,000 klm per season and I'm burning through way too may dual sport tires. I've tried the stock Trail-Wings, then Mettzler Tourance's and lastly a Shinko (which only lasted 10,000 klm) so I'm going to switch up to straight highway tires. I've heard the Mettzler ME880 is a good choice but some of the sizes don't seem to be exact matches.

Any advice from anyone that has gone this route? I'm not looking for a long discussion about the relative merrits of one tire over another. I'm an average enough rider that I'm sure any good brand name tire will suit me fine - what I'm really looking for is more longevity than what I'm getting now while still being reasonably good traction wise.
Thanks VERY much in advance

You won't get an exact size match with the ME880s but they will work. They are the choice of high mileage riders. See Metzeler ME880 Marathon Reports
I seem to remember a Harley v. BMW selection difference so check the thread.
