My Metzler front is wobbling now after 7000 miles. I can feel it with both hands on the bars, unless I hold firmly. If I let go, it feels as if the front end will come off! This is at the usual speeds of 30 to 50. Run 41-F &42R psi.

Are they doing anything about this at Metzler for us if we contact them?

Metzler has been replacing problem tires free of charge,that includes mounting costs. The fronts are not available rite now but should be available in a few weeks. I was one of the lucky ones my Metzler tires have been perfect. In fact I am so impressed that I ordered a second set of Metzlers on the turkey day sale.
