Customer Reviews

 Sno-e-top Posted:

Great product. And prompt delivery. Very satisfied

 lpchamness Posted:

I've got about 7500 miles on my first rear Commmander II, and have about 5000 miles on my current Commander II rear. These wear great but wet grip is a little compromised. I normally get about 5000 miles from a rear tire, and I'm getting +50% from these. Dry grip is excellent once the tires are warmed up. Wet grip is just a little bit less than some other tires I've had, but still acceptable. For the price and durability of these tires, I'll give up a little bit of wet traction.

 Robert g kahn Posted:

I found this tire to be a very good price and the comfort and handing were very much improved

 easyrider1960 Posted:

just like riding on a bald Dunlop on my 06 ultra in the rain Have about 1500 miles on it putting a Dunlop back on ASAP Posted:

I just got it mounted and only have a couple of hundred miles on it. It replaces a Metzler which didn't give me many miles. More later

 jaybee49 Posted:

So far, so good. I just purchased the tire and the handling is great. Will have to wait to see what kind of wear I get.

 cdb1964 Posted:

Have not had any problems so far, will have to get back after a few thousand miles.

 doug1709 Posted:

love this tire !!!

 jjturner Posted:

Very happy with this tire so far (about 1000 miles). On a 08 RoadGlide.

 7shovelhead1 Posted:

The Michelin seems to have a harder rubber that last a lot longer than the Dunlap I was using . I could only get about 7,000 miles out of a Dunlap. At present I got 16 thousand miles on the Michelin and it's still not worn out .

 gunsmithnc Posted:

Makes bike handle much better

 johnblechajr Posted:

Exactly what I was looking for from a fit and style. Tires were recommended to me from several other riders and after riding them for the last week they handle great and the ride of my glide is extremely smooth.

 reillybp Posted:

The price and delivery time can not be beat. I only have a little over 100 miles on the tire. They look good and have a deep thread so I am hopeful the milage and grip in the rain are as advertised.

 dddphoto Posted:

Don't have enough miles on for a full review but I am loving these new tires. The ride and handling are excellent. If the claim of longevity holds up this will be my only tire from now on.

 RIXTER Posted:

Gotta luv the price and service! A pleasure dealing with J&P Cycles!! I'll be back!

 adambogart99 Posted:

Excellent so far! I have only ridden about 500 miles, but they handle great in the turns. The ride is also noticeably smoother. I have used Dunlops, Metzeler, and Avons in the past, if these last as long as they say, I will never look back.

 emrfixit Posted:

Really great ride. So far, I have a year on the tire, over 4k and still looks new.

 smokejohnson14 Posted:

Great Tire No Problems.

 bmit16 Posted:

good high mileage tire for the cost.

 fuster44 Posted:

Great price! Prompt shipment & delivery! Will definatly buy again!!

 charles40741 Posted:

Awesome tire so far the bike handles 100% better. Thanks for the great service.

 Cecil G Posted:

So much better than the standard Dunlops. Light and handling is improved.

 sp6saz Posted:

A little less traction than Dunlop. But a lot longer life which I want. I'm not a cafe racer I'm a touring old guy well 50 years young.

 Ers0429 Posted:

Awesome tires

 Phillip2007 Posted:

AS always fast delivery. They look good waiting on the freezing weather to end, get to ride. Local bike shop said JP had a better price than he could buy them wholesale.

 toadglide Posted:

PUTS DUNLOP to SHAME, twice the mileage

 loudandfoul Posted:

great tire best price I found

 matt6507 Posted:

awsome tire rides great fast shipping

 legaultlabonte Posted:

I recommend these tires over any other tire out there.......

 Lancestanford Posted:

Love the ride and the way it handles in curves or just cruising.

 2576 Posted:

excelent ride and traction. good looking full-size tire, will advise about mileage after some road miles.

 ybmfgqm Posted:

Much, much quieter than the original Dunlop (Harley Touring). Seems to be a little grippier too. Hopefully I'll get more than 8,000 miles out of it

 phil smith Posted:

like the Michelins on my 2005 RK Custom, have 12,000 on my first set, 60% left on front, 25-30% left on rear. always used Metzelers before, am ordering a rear now before a 5000 mile trip pulling a camper,

 safald Posted:

300 miles on the tire and so far so good. I'm really liking the ride and performance so far on my 07 ultra. Can't wait to see how long it lasts.

 Q234 Posted:

Fast shipping, super sale price, and a fantastic tire!

 jongam123 Posted:

Great tire and handles really well !

 harpdave Posted:

So far so good, has good traction on dry and wet, I will better be able to tell after it gets some wear and how well it handles cracks and tar snakes at that time.

 MOEPARR Posted:


 Don Ho Posted:

 burnhamkenneth Posted:

 Conan69 Posted:

Good traction and good tread life I recommend it and will buy it again

 limbwalker68 Posted:

Great tire , saved my ass in a rain storm from hell .

 senior45 Posted:

I'm glad to see J&P finally dropped their prices on this great tire.This tire does everything Michelin says and then some.I have 11k miles on a complete set.The front has barely worn,the rear has about 3k left on it.Handles absolutely fantastic in dry or wet.Hot or cold.In the twisties or out on the interstate.Not one issue with these tires.I will be buying more of them. Do yourself and your bike a favor and get a set of these tires.

 letterman02 Posted:

Great looking tire Super fast J&P shipping.

 leonblack Posted:

i believe the wear on this tire is great but not shure of the grip have had trouble with tire slide and i have a bone stock bike harley 96 inch nothing special. very suprised that the grip is not better but to get good wear i think the tire compound is a little hard after my experiance not shure i can recomend this tire if you ride in other than perfect conditions i ride about 10 to 15 thousand miles a year

 squawkingsparrow Posted:

 yahkster Posted:

I bought these tires at J&P and as always the deliver time was excellent Ive had this tire on now for 2 days and i have to say I love them already. My last set was the Dunlap ex3 and after 2 days I already like these commander 2s better. Thanks for fast service J&P and a great quality product. Posted:

Quick shipping!

 Buzz Lightyear Posted:

 mrcleandean Posted:

This tire is great. I am very impressed in the handling and treadwear on this tire. I was tired of burning through those other tires.
