    I've been driving with my Metzeler Roadtec01 for some time now, works fine so far, nothing to complain about. Front tyre will be replaced with Roadtec as well when the time come for a front tyre replacement..

    Just fitted roadtecs ! Fantastic tyre miles better than the pilot4 . Loads of feedback and thus confidence . I wouldn't fit the pilot 4s to a tractor !

    I fitted roadtec 01s last year and I can't fault the grip in wet or dry conditions but mine have not kept there profile the rear started to look slightly square at 2500 miles the front was still fine at this point but by the time I changed them at 3800 miles the front sides of the tyre is showing uneven wear,my bikes only used for fun so virtually no motorway rides or commuting. The Dunlops that came on my tracer were changed at around 2800 miles they needed changing but had kept there profile. The only other tyre I've had this problem with is angel GTs great grip etc but poor profile which spoils your riding enjoyment,I also don't agree with mcn reviews were they say it's a sporty ride as the profile is too flat even when new,I would be interested to hear how others 01s profile are looking.

    Interesting to hear that Shaun, need to replace my Michelin PR3 soon, they have done just over 6300 miles and are starting to square, they have been really good, but reading this weeks MCN trye reviews they really rate the Metzeler Roadtec 01, they even state they made the tracer 700 feel like it had a 3000 suspension upgrade, they were that good! It did seem a bit to good to be true!

    I 'm on 3rd pair of PR4s as i got to use them and i found them cheaper as before..
    they are very confident on every terrain and weather..
    first and second pair last for 15Km each..
    the only "bad" thing is that their limit when turning is short... though they aren't too "sport" but they are the "honest sport-touring" tyres.
    PR4 cost 250 euros when 01 cost 320 and my tyre-specialist doesn't recommend.

    I've just replaced the rear PR4 after a shade over 7,000 miles. Probably could have stretched another 500 miles out of it, but when they get this thin it's easy to get a puncture. I replaced the previous rear PR4 after 5,000 miles after finding a nail in it.

    The front PR4 has been on the bike for 12,000 miles, with enough tread left for maybe another 2,000-3,000 miles. The profile is still good.

    Motorrad magazine in Germany also found the Metzeler Roadtec 01 tyres to be the best:

    Article is in German

    But everyone has personal preferences, and as Shaun has stated the profiles are different, so it might not be to everybodies taste.
