I put on Metzeler Marathon 880's
Got a nail in my rear and noticed the front was wearing hard. So, researched long wearing touring tires and these kept coming up as decent.
Had great luck with them. Climbed Mt Washington, commuted in all months of the year, rain, sun, etc. Hardly look worn at all in almost 2 years and some 6000 miles.
Only thing to remember is these were REALLY slick for the first couple hundred miles. Had to break them in slowly. First 25 miles were actually pretty squirrely.
Absolutely will get them again.
