Default Anyone ever use Metzeler M5s?

Went to get a set of PPs at the Kawasaki dealership.. (Blasphemous, I know) and they didnt set aside a set for me like they said they were going to so they didnt have a 180/120 set in the PP. They instead offered me a set of the Metzeler M5 sportec interacts for the same price at $220 total. $130 front $90 rear.

Anyone ever use these? Whats the word in tire life? They seem really nice so far, and even have a cool little 12345 chicken strip indicator on the side walls.

metzeler's in general are awesome tires from what i've seen and heard, but i've personally never ran a set of them. im all about bt016's. however metzelers seem like a good deal, expecially at that price.

I still haven't tryed them, but they're gonna be my winter tires.
People around here liked them alot with good mileage and the grip it's there. Nobody can complain about that on any Metz tire.

Never been a fan of the BT16, I eat them WAY too fast for my liking. Sure, they do grip but I moved to the Qualifier 2 and they're heaps better. A generation ahead in tires is alot. The mechanical grip and feedback is awesome. The mileage is even better than my previous PP2CT.

But before the winter I'm gonna burn through a set of the new Sportsmart, which by all accounts is an improvement to the Qualifier 2
