Customer Reviews

 Panheadfred Posted:

12,000 miles on last Michelin. Handled great.

 kf7iyn Posted:

I'm a Electra Glide daily rider, long and short trips. Great handling wet/dry. I just ordered My second rear tire, I got about 15,000 miles out of it, Would recommend this tire and JP Cycles to any rider, always been satisfied!!!

 farmersemail Posted:

ok this is a GREAT tire i ride 2 up most of the time i have over 11000 miles on this tire and i need to replace. but there out of stock hope in soon. I do not want to change. i bet i get 30000 out of the front Cant say enough about you will love these tires Posted:

Have not put many miles on it yet but so far very satisfied. Great looking tire. As always very fast shipping.

 60ksporty Posted:

These tires are the ticket. Already rain proven. If I get more than 6k-7k miles out of them, (compared to the Dunlop tires that I normally purchase) I will raise my rating to a 5 star.

 damian2 Posted:

Great tire for any bike, any weather. it is a must have...

 EL Rancho LOCO Posted:

Shipping was right on time. Tires made my Road King handle better than ever and the ride is smoother. Thanks

 Barney99 Posted:

Almost time to replace the rear tire. Got 12,000+ miles on the old one and still have some tread left. Very happy with the ride and grip. I've tried Dunlop and Pirelli tires on my 02 Ultra Classic. I'll stay with the Commander II. In my opinion is the best buy $$/mile.

 1995Sidecar Posted:

I ride a Road King with a sidecar so tire wear is a big factor for me. I've heard great things about this tire. I haven't had time to put a lot of miles on it yet to check wear but the bike feels smoother on the straights and more stable in the curves. with just over 200 miles on the tire I like it already.

 wmayer Posted:

delivery service was fast, on my second tire this year,i ride hard and two up all the time.replaceing a Dunlop 402 tire.

 jehp Posted:

I have 2003 FLHTC with 80,000 miles I've always ran stock Dunlop tires but they didn't last long I have 2500 miles on the Michelin commander II 300 of that is in rainy conditions on back roads they handle a lot better than the Dunlop time will tell if they last longer but overall I'm very pleased with these tires.

 btolleson Posted:

i read all the reviews before buying this tire and they all correct but my tire went flat running 80 mph and something i learned is the sidewalls are soft.The dunlops are real stiff which allows you to almost run on a flat but the commanders are way to soft which in turns them to last a lot longer.I'm going back to 110 years of Harley know how and buy the dunlop i've never had a tire go flat with them.You can have the extra miles.My commander tires only had a couple of thousand miles on them when i got a nail in the tire and my world as i know it almost changed forever!!

 farmersemail Posted:

bought these just about a year ago have 6800 miles on them. I would say I got another 2000 left I ride most of the time two up and hard miles. GREAT TIRE!

 RjClark Posted:

Great tire, have about 350 miles on it and went from the OE Dunlop. The improvement in ride is alarming!

 wch22630 Posted:

I received the tires very fast as with all J&P orders. The tires look fantastic, I have not had a chance to mount them on the bike

 pahrumpglide Posted:

Good install; sharp turns feel better; wet handling very good.

 poprocks Posted:

Great looking tire. I'm a big Michelin fan so I'm sure I'll be happy with them. J&P was great as always.

 Bears75 Posted:

The 1st mile I rode on these I could tell it was the best decision I could have made in choosing a tire! 100% better than the stock Dunlops. Kudos Michelin Posted:

best price any where, fast shipping.

 jhbrown Posted:

Great Service and Great Tire!!! Have received lots of comments on how good they look on my 03 Road King!

 mwobeser Posted:

Great deal!! Thanks!!!

 rlbear Posted:

I really like the tire it handles and corners so much better than my other tire, thank you J&P Cycles

 shilgeman Posted:

GREAT TIRE!!!!! Posted:

This tire rides so much smoother than the stock brand!

 Bondobob63 Posted:

Nice tire great price

 sliderflh Posted:

this is my second set of Commander 2's excellent wear and performance

 92HDultra Posted:

Stiffer ride than Avon Venom tires I was used to only have 3,000 miles on set.

 lostsurferntg Posted:

Great tire, Great Price

 goebel Posted:

I put a pair of these Michelin tires on my Road King, (note: I have 90K on this bike and it has always had Dunlop’s.) Simply said it is a much better tire overall, better grip, no crack tracking, stick like glue in the rain, and 7K later on them and they show little sign of wear. Needless to say I will be buying the Michelin again, and they will replace the Dunlop’s on my Heritage ST soon. Posted:

1300 mi and it still has the nubs on the tire. I do not notice the tar snakes as much as the avons

 unkaz Posted:

Great Tire, the best till now

 Dooba Posted:

so far good tire smooth ride, ill see how it wares

 pipefitter50 Posted:

The absolute best tire i have ever put on a Harley.

 esteinhauer Posted:

I like these tires Posted:

awesome tire and awesome experience. got the tire in two days. i was expecting a lot longer. thanks.

 bigphil454 Posted:

First 500 miles are excellent! Great ride, great cornering, good braking.

 gatekeeper1 Posted:

Good tire at the best price anywhere.

 UEMS2001 Posted:

Price was great, shipped on time & looks good.

 Johnny Bridges Posted:

Nice tire, handles well...Michelin, what do you expect? I've been looking for a higher mileage tire than the Dunlops I've run for years...time will tell if the Commander II is what it claims to be.

 Curtis Freeman Posted:

Good Price and good Tire

 petrie0129 Posted:

Came on time, tire looked great, and rides awesome. We'll see how many miles I get out of it as time goes on.

 1997flht Posted:

 harleybrook11 Posted:

 lightemup3 Posted:

Way better then the OEM Dunlops, best tire yet!

 combatvampire Posted:

Great price, great service. The tires look great.

 kf7iyn Posted:

Went on 500 mile w/wife the next day after mounted these tires(F and R), great ride, grip, and cornering. Can't wait to see how long they last on 2002 Ultra !

 north ferry choppers Posted:

great handling tire

 rambo 2320 Posted:

excellent service & fast shipping. i order the wrong tire and your customer service corrected the problem very quick and took care of my pay pal account. very professional people, quite knowledgeable. thank you: ron m.

 WoodyKC Posted:

Great time, slightly wider tread results in more stable cornering while not requiring extra effort. Very happy with everything about the tire.

 mmazzone25 Posted:

Tire has same tread pattern I had before. I am very happy with this purchase Posted:

I've only put 200 miles on them but they feel great!! Hope they last longer than the Dunlops.

 MrtnDPp Posted:

Best tire,great price, Delivery time was excellent

 edwardsb1986 Posted:

 MLW 27529 Posted:

execellent Posted:

EXCELLENT TIRE!!!!!!!! J & P is the best place to get your parts. GET THESE TIRES !!!

 parcati Posted:

I have been running on Michelin Commanders for a few years, this is my first Commander 2. I will not use any other tire. They hold the road wet or dry. Excellent lifetime mileage

 catsmtrods Posted:

Great Price and amazingly fast delivery! Happy with feel of new tires. 150 miles and have yet to wear the little rubber tags off!

 martinezcd Posted:

These things stick like glue! And track very well. Graded more wobble! Simply awesome! And have a nice tread pattern too. Look Sharp. I actually went with a 140 instead. No clearance issues what so ever

 T-Bar Posted:

Thanks J&P Cycles for a seamless online ordering and a less than expected, 3 day delivery to my door. I have owned many types of road bikes from cruisers to crotch rockets and tried nearly every kind of tire, up until now, Continental Road Attacks were my favorite. I can’t attest to the reputed “longer life” as I have only put about 1,800 miles on these Commanders but I will say I love the ride, the feel and the handling on any road condition from hot and dry to cool and wet, concrete to asphalt and hard pack dirt through “tar and chip”. Even the grooved pavements of Ohio’s new Craig Bridge on I-280 over the Maumee River or the crazy surface of Michigan’s Mighty Mack on I-75 left me confident of these tires. I’m pretty positive these will be the tires for me and my Road King for a long time to come. Posted:

another Quick shipping and great looking tire for my Sportster!
