5 // METZELER SPORTEC M7 RR TIRES
Balancing dry grip, wet grip, and mileage is a tricky endeavor, but Metzeler says it's done it with the new Sportec M7 RR tires. Featuring revised tread designs, race-derived profiles, and newly developed compounds, the M7s are specifically designed for sporty riding in inclement weather. The front features a 100-percent silica compound with a lower land/sea ratio to clear water, while the rear tire has a dual-compound design with a harder, slick center for maximum durability. Sets start at $356.
