Metzler Karoo 3 Tires


Read through UTADV and you’ll see the three consecutive failures of the rear tube in a new Shinko SR244. Come to find out, the tire itself, though the right size, would slip on the rim and bind the tube which would then fail along the creases.
That’s when I vowed to not skimp on rubber. The Tiger left D&K Motorcycles in Bountiful yesterday shod in new Metzler Karoo 3s, lauded as a solid 70/30 tire that’s very capable in sand. Fits my bill. I’ll update as the miles piles on. The guys at D&K in Bountiful are great, by the way, and their service is impeccable.
