    Just ordered a pair of M7rr. My last ride destroyed me rear tyre (only in the middle )
    Demon Thiefs £209
    I looked at the m5 as some one on here said. But there was only a few quid difference and I've seen some cracking reviews of the 7's

    M7rr are the perfect all round road tyre!

    Metzler had an offer going when I bought mine - a free pair of gloves with their logo on. I declined 'cause I have some gloves already and didn't want all the faff :D but they had an offer and may still have an offer on the go.

    So my m7's have arrived. First observation is the carcus is really stiff. I've changed loads of tyres and never had a pair like this. Think I'll struggle to fit these by hand.ive noticed that over the years tyres have become stiffer and more difficult to fit.will see how I get on.

    I haven't yet had to change 'modern' tyres. I guess the days of soap and two 12-inch tyre levers are long gone? :D

    Strange you say that as my tyre fitter guy says the opposite. He loves putting them on compared to say the Dunlop sportsmarts...which he says are a bitch!
    Maybe you'll find they're easier than you think if you have a go?!?

    I love Bridgestone BT 023 tyres, I’ve never had an issue with them.

    Anyone tried Bridgestone S21's?? I've been hearing great things about them so far, my Dunlops are about ready for swapping out in the next couple months or so. Not a fan of the road smarts on it. bit numb feeling.

    I had 2 sets on my 2014.....1st set s21. 2nd set S21evo....both really good lasted about 2.5k to 3k at a push.
    Hard in the middle then get softer towards the edge all the grip you will need....take time in the wet to get warm but a very stable tyre.....on my sp on super corsa a whole level up but needs to be double digit temps but once hot the fun begins,,,,last about 1.5k....so half the S21....
