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.

In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, the Metal tires still share their stats with the Gold Tires, but their stats have been somewhat altered. They now offer an improved boost to ground speed—same as that of the Slick and Cyber Slick tires—and a slight increase in water speed, but their air speed, anti-gravity speed, acceleration, ground handling, water handling, air handling, anti-gravity handling, traction and miniturbo stats have been further reduced.
