My newly acquired T100 is going to need a set of tires. The current tires are Metzeler ME 33 (100/90-19) on the front and ME Z2 (130/80-17) on the rear. I was on a website and saw that they still make the Z2 tires but I did not see the ME33 tires. I saw a set of Metzeler Lasertec tires that looked good. The description also looked good as well. What are your preferences in tires. I was also thinking about going a little wider on the rear but the only option for doing this was to either go to a V rating which I do not really want to do.

Glenn, I ran Lasertec tires on my 02 T100 and I was well pleased with them. They did very well in the twisties in NC.
