Great tire good price fast shipping

5 by

Very happy with the purchase. The delivery process was good and the price was as low as I'd seen. Have only ridden a few miles on the new tire so I can't say much about the advertised longevity. I guess I'll have to wait and see.

5 by

Great tire, feels good and grips on wet pavement. Now we'll see how long it lasts!

5 by

These are the best tires that i have brought for my Yamaha 1300 V-star bike!!!

5 by

Better than dunlop last longuer

5 by

Great tires. Got 17,500 miles on my last one. Running Michelin Commander 2's front and rear.

5 by

Just installed the tire. Going with Michelin vs. using Dunlop's in the past. If these Michelins have the performance of their car tires, I am expecting great results.

5 by

I bought a set of the Michelin Commander II's and am thrilled with the smooth,quiet ride of this tire over the stock Dunlop. I have 3,000 miles of 2up riding on them and they look like the day I received them. GREAT tires thus far ..... Stay tuned for updates

5 by

I ordered the Commander II's from J&P Cycles and they were at my doorstep in 3 days. I am TOTALLY satisfied with my choice on the switch from the stock Dunlops. With the detailed reviews and videos I was able to make an educated choice. I made the trip from the Northern Panhandle of West Virginia to the Carolina's for Myrtle Beach Bike Week. The ride on my Michelin's is much quieter and smoother than the stock Dunlops. I recommend these tires to anyone riding a Touring Bike. Thank you J&P Cycles for a GREAT tire,GREAT information, and GREAT Service

5 by

I bought a set of commanders for my sportester. I have over 5k miles on them and still look great. They corner very well. Will be buying some for my Ultra Classic.

5 by

Bought a set of these last year before my USA4ct. I have 16,000 miles on them now and still could get a couple thousand more. Best tires ever for my 2011 HD Ultra Classic.

5 by

So far I really like this tire, getting to get the front one on.

3 by

J&P service was great. These tires though hydroplane bad and slip on dry tar snakes and on back roads that are dry where the gravel has worn off from the tar in curves. Very disappointed. They do however wear very well. 7000 miles and still very good tread. I'll be going back to the Dunlops though with the next set.

5 by

Fast service n good price.

5 by

Great tire. Very reliable good in the rain. Great on the dragon.

5 by

This is by far the best motorcycle tire I have ever had. Thanks Michelin for making these outstanding tires.

5 by

Rides smooth, very stable in the curves

5 by

Amazing value and quality. I got 17,000 miles out of my last Michelin Commander II 180/65B16 for almost half the cost of a dealer tire. My favorite by far.

5 by

First time using this brand and type of tire, pleased with it so far. Comfortable ride, great traction, quiet on any type of surface. Have not tried it on the rain yet, but feel comfortable it should perform as claimed!

4 by

so far

5 by

Good price and fast delivery A+

5 by

Excellent tire. Price was even better! I will buy all my tires from J&P.

5 by

best tires I have bought will tell my friends about them

5 by

Best price, quick delivery.

5 by

Great riding tire feel very stable in mtn riding.

5 by

An awsome tire that you will almost double the amount of miles you get out of a rear tire. My last one got me over 15K and the only reason I changed it was because I picked up a screw. I could have safely gotten another 2000 miles out of it. I will have nothing else on my Ultra Classic.

5 by

Love the new tire. Great service.

5 by

I have a Electra Glide Ultra with 14000miles on Michelin tires front and back. There is 40% left and this is mostly 2 UP riding.To me there is no other tire.

5 by

Michelin claims twice the mileage vs. competing brands; my experience with Commanders on my '09 FLHX bears this out. Great tires.

5 by

Easy ordering, quick turn-a-round, and reasonable prices with warehouse to residence convince. ADP

5 by

Awesome tire. 20,000 miles and great ride. Price is perfect. Figure I'd try something different this time and tried Metzeler high mileage. Wrong. 9,000 miles in and rides rough, tread cupped and wear pattern is odd. Never again Metzeler. I am a Michelin man from here forward. Also have matching front commander II with 12,000 miles showing hardly any wear at all. Thanks J&P and Michelin

5 by

excellent tire so far...3k miles...nice upgrade from stock dunlops.

5 by

Just returned home from 2500 mile trip on my new commander II tires and i am sold they ride great and are awsome in the rain, Michelin you got it right this time!

4 by

I went with this tier based on the good reviews. I hope it measures up. I'm installing it this weekend.

5 by

Great tire! Just returned from a four day road trip to Arkansas, riding the Pig trail, stuck to the curves like glue.

5 by

Great product.

5 by

Great tire.. Have over 4000 miles and it still looks new.. Other tires with this mileage were ready for change..

5 by

Awesome tire and Great price

5 by

Good traction in wet weather with great cornering. Price was right for the product and will buy again.

4 by

Stiff but better than Dunlops

5 by

Great tire at a great price

5 by

Very quick shipment. Great tire.

5 by

Follow up review: Well the tires now have 8,000 miles on them and still look and handle well. I will have at least 13,000 miles on them by the time Sturgis gets here so that is another 4,200 + miles that will go on in two weeks. I will repost then how the tires are doing.

5 by

a lot better tire than factory dunlop. no regrets. harley davidson should use the michelin commander ll for there factory tires.

5 by

This tire is GREAT. It handles well on dry surfaces and even in a down pour. The price is reasonable and the appearance is nice.

5 by

I purchased a set of the Michelin Commander II tires both front and rear specifically to ride in the 2012 Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge. I can say with 100% confidence after riding the challenge 6300 miles on some of the most challenging rodes in this country that these tires stood up better than any other tire I've ridden. The handling and road response was excellent. They gave me greater confidence in the 2 days of constant switchbacks we rode. In 23 days I road 14,025 miles and the tires still have a lot of tread left. Great tire and I would recommend them to everyone that is serious about riding.

5 by

Good looking tire like the way it rides and love the way it rolls thought corners.

5 by

I purchased this tire replace Harley OEM Dunlap tire. The tire handled very good and grabs to the road surface. Just got back from the mountains where they handled great!

5 by

This is a new tire just introduced in January. It is a smoother riding tire than what came on the bike. Good in the rain.

5 by

Excellent product extremely pleased!

5 by

Best ride since I bought the bike new.
