Customer Reviews

 Easymoneytn Posted:

I got almost 14000 miles on these tires love em rain and ride are nice Posted:

I received my tire in a very fast time, and it was exactly what I was looking for when ordering from a company. Thank you J&P

 tcundiff51 Posted:

I ride a lot, 6 to 8000 miles a year. These are the best tires in any condition. I will buy this tire again in another 3 or 4 years if need be. Posted:

Great tire.

 Houger Posted:

You can't beat theses tires. I live in the northwest Seattle area (go seahawks 12) but we have a lot of bridges and they are grated cause they are draw bridges but most bridges you go over with motorcycles, you wonder side to side But not theses tires. They are also perfect on the wet dry road.

 kajonshef Posted:

Second time I replaced rear tire with these Michelins. Great tire. Lots of miles and control and feel is great. Replaced front and back this round. Look great on my softail.

 jimsizemore Posted:

You know, once in a while you find yourself in the right place at the right time. This was one instance of that. It's fall and I am preparing to make my "to do" list in preparation for next spring and the 2015 riding season. Searching the J&P cycles web site I noted that Michelin Commander II tires were advertised on sale. Having been a Michelin patron for years now, I knew that the manufacturer of both the tires on my jeep, my Jetta and the wifes car would be an obvious first choice for the Harley. Installed soon after arrival... this customer wasn't disappointed. Just a capable as every other Michelin I have ever owned... an a bargain at end of season pricing. Now if only J&P offered Michelin's for my next automobile purchase!

 rmlii2 Posted:

Fantastic. Makes the ride much more enjoyable and am looking forward to long trips and high miles.

 thayne Posted:


 purplrodeo69 Posted:

I have always bought Dunlap.The michelin commanderII tire,it handles great around turns,very light feel.getting ready to purchase the front tire.Will recommend this tire to everyone.Very happy with it.

 chaindrive1953 Posted:

Great tires im impressed the way they ride and handle.

 hdclint Posted:

Everything was perfect. Shipped immediately and delivered as expected. I tried another vendor and 10 days later they still didn't ship so I cancelled that one. Never again! Should have stayed here as I have always been pleased.

 kfox64 Posted:

Long lasting and good traction. Have 12000+ on my old one and most of that is with very heavy loads.

 skiangler Posted:

Great service, Great product, Great price!!! Love J&P Cycles!!!

 ronn07 Posted:

Amazing tire. Still looks close to brand new after 5000 miles. Love it!

 ponytail2367 Posted:

Best tire I ever had!!!! Smooth ride bites hard.......I got 9,700 miles out of this tire at mostly 100mph

 ScooterURMC Posted:

Awesome tire. First time using something other than Dun 401's. This is a much better tire and cheaper.

 wetsu7 Posted:

As with the matching front tire. This to is proven to be an excellent decision.

 semundine Posted:

Received promptly as advertised and good price

 lauriegal Posted:

 flying92 Posted:

I live in phoenix az where i ride all year long. I ride my dyna fast and hard,that being said the summers are brutal on tires here even more so with hard fast riding. I went through two dunlops in one summer. I went to the commander 2 and now have 11,250 miles on one rear tire with life left! Very good handling and super smooth ride!

 adjbmx05 Posted:

Fast shipping and great price on the tire!

 TKOROCK Posted:

Love the tire. Makes for a much softer ride.

 north ferry choppers Posted:

great tire

 toddman Posted:

All I can say is WOW! This tire is awesome. It looks good, rides great, and the price from JP Cycles was incredible! Posted:

This tire is a great replacement for your stock Dunlop, it tracks better and holds great in curves. Thanks for shipping so fast!!

 musaffa Posted:

Awesome tires so far! Only time will tell all.

 wl7cta Posted:

Great tire.

 papsargent Posted:

Love the why this Tire rides and wears.

 rbeaty Posted:

great product at a great price

 dsmall54 Posted:

Have put a 1000 miles on the tire and it lives up to its claim of eliminating freeway wobble. More comfortable than any tire I've been on.

 springerlouie Posted:

Great tire

 MOEPARR Posted:


 jlcp&j Posted:

It's a Michelin, what can I say. They are the best. Softer ride, hoping longer lasting.Thank you J&P

 dantiff2 Posted:

These are great tires that ride smooth, quiet and stick to the road!

 rwebb Posted:

Good looking tire, hope I get the mileage out of it that people and reviews say it will produce. Switch from the Dunlop Harley tire , we will see what happens.

 launchba Posted:

I priced this at my area indy, and J&P was $90 cheaper. I still had indy mount and balance them as I just take in the wheels. In this economy, I have to look for best deals and J&P has them. Thanks

 sandjunky Posted:

I've had this tire on my 2004 Harley Davidson Fatboy for a week. so far the tire seems to have good grip and rides well in the rain. The Michelin Commander has a smooth comfortable ride.

 puklaw Posted:

Love this tire, it works fantastic on my 05 roadking. This is my second one and I get twice the milage out of these over the Dunlaps

 bdeemer64 Posted:

These tires are excactly what there described to be long lasting with remarkable handling.And they look great also!

 sportster_69ron Posted:

Ordered both front and back tires. Very pleased with both!

 bretoldt Posted:

Good tire

 drjackpasula Posted:

Tires are fantastic. .They have given me a new found comfort in turns that the original Dunlop did not provide. .recommend these tires to anyone

 Trucker89 Posted:

everything is great very pleased with j&p

 John Frakes Posted:

Back tire seams to handle well and looks great on the bike

 Rhasta Posted:

The Commander II tires are the best tires I have ever used on a motorcycle. They hold the road like the bike is on rails. They also have incredible traction on wet pavement. Posted:

Satisfied ride is better than the Dunlop's that came on the bike. over 800 miles this weekend no complaints

 luckyer69 Posted:

Tire is a smooth ride here in Kore4a where the roads get rough. The weather here chages fast and gets lots of rain and the tire has good tread to disperse the water.

 hwki66 Posted:

Had the tire mounted and have absolutely no complaints. Very good ride going down the road. Will purchase again.

 jonmccalip Posted:

Great value, I have not put many miles on them yet But so far they are way better than the stock dunlops that came with the bike.

 RKisloski Posted:

great tire. comfortable ride

 jetman1981 Posted:

Just installed, so far nice and good traction. Have always been pleased with Michelin tires for my truck, sure this tire will preform as desribed.

 MilfordCycles Posted:

I have heard nothing but good things about this tire, just waiting to so how it holds up to a hard season of riding.

 NiteWolf383 Posted:

Great price on a great tire
