Rear tire

So it's about that time for a new rear tire for my ninja. I got a hell of a deal on two tires and picked them up. I paid $30 for both of them! One of them is a Metzeler MEZ2 (130/80 17) and seems to be in pretty good condition. Does anyone have any experience with this tire or know anyone that does? Is it a good tire for the ninja??

The Metzeler MEZ2 (130/80 17) is a sport touring radial tire. It is approx 5.1 inches wide and 25 inches in dia., which makes it an inch taller than the stock IRC. Should provide excellent traction compared to stock tires. Just make sure both tires are either radials or bias ply as the two types handle differently.
