The Metal tires are a set of unlockable tires in Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. They offer a strong boost to weight, weighing the same as the Monster tires, along with a slight boost in speed. However, they also hinder traction and acceleration heavily. Their stats are shared with the Gold Tires.
