I have the Mefo front and the Heidenaus rear. Both have 3600 miles. The rear looks great with many miles left and the feel has been good on all surfaces-still loads with mud. The front provided good traction-still greasy in mud, but the sides are mostly gone and needs replaced soon. I will try a TKC80 or the Heidenaus front next time.

If you are riding mostly asphalt with your Battlewing rear, I would choose something other than the Mefo.
There are two things to aim at in life: first, to get what you want; and, after that, to enjoy it.
Only the wisest of humans achieve the second.
