After I put this tire on I went on about a 1400 mile trip. I have to say this was a very good buy next step is to put one on the front.

Just rode from Utah to Vermont and back through Trans Canada. 6000 miles total. I had a Dunlop on the rear on the way to VT that had under 2000 miles on it. By the time I got to VT it was on the wear bars!!! That's a grand total of 4400 miles on the thing. I had already switched the front tire to a Commander II so picked one up for the rear. Installed and rode 3500 miles on it and it looks brand new. It performs so much better than the Dunlops in every aspect. I rode over 500 miles in the rain without batting an eye and it doesn't wander in road grooves. Seriously, do yourself a favor and pick up a pair of these today...you won't regret it!!!

Nice tread pattern. Great traction.

These are really great tires. I put them on last year. So far only 5000 miles. I went with beads to balance them and they are awesome. Great feel, really nice over bridge grates... No wondering at all. The only bad thing is I found two screws in the rear today so I guess I will be getting a new rear tire. You will love these tires.

Product delivered in a timely manner. Good handling tires, smooth ride. I recommend this site to all those seeking tires for their bike.

5 by

Love it. Better than stock grip. I'll see how the mileage stacks up in a few months.

5 by

The tire looks and feels like a winner, just had it installed and the ride is smoother and firmer. I like the way my bike feels - like it is attached to the ground rather than riding on it.

5 by

Very pleased with my purchase, and how short it took to be delivered. I also love how your site tells me if it will fit my bike or not.

5 by

After a brief scuff in period it was like riding a new bike.

5 by

Just put this tire on my Road King and got about 500 miles on it and it seems like a great tire ! Very smooth riding tire

5 by

I decided to try something new instead of the D404s. They have been a good tire with good wear qualities but seemed a bit hard. The Commander IIs have worked out great. They are quieter and have a softer feel. The test was in Sturgis this year from Rushmore to Deadwood during the rain storm. The contact patch felt strong and gave me a lot of confidence. I would imagine they will wear out a little faster than the 404s But I can live with that considering the positives.

5 by

I had great mileage from this tire almost 15000 miles.

5 by

Great tire so far... I have put over 700 miles and the tire is still in great shape. Handles the road like a glove.

5 by

great tires great price J P always comes through

5 by

4000 mi on a Dunlop 10000 on the commanders. On my 2nd tire. Won't buy another brand. Ride and treadwear are outstanding.

5 by

I bought this tire for my FXDC. I put one on my Ultra last year and have 8,000 miles on it. The tread is still at 50%. I would be changing the factory Dunlop by now.

5 by

Grate tire and fast service

5 by

Ordered with rush delivery and it arrived in 4 days. The tire replaced my original tire. Great ride, only have 1,000 miles on it but great product so far and would use the rush order processing again.

5 by

Great tire and look for my riding style

5 by

Its an awesome tire fast delivery and I love it.....

5 by

The purchase and delivery of this tire was great! I had a relatively severe vibration on my old tire, but it was instantly remedied when I replaced it with this tire! I have yet to determine the lifespan of it, but the handling is drastically improved!

5 by

Great tires. My bike feels like it lost 100 pounds from the old Dunlops. The price through J&P was right and they arrived quickly even to Hawaii.

4 by

Tires are great, only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because I have to see how long they last, manufacturer claims they'll last twice as long as their competition, we'll see.

5 by

nice....

5 by

Good ride from this tire!

Nice Dunlop replacement

5 by

The Michelin tires are great! I could tell the difference in the ride and handling the minute I took off.

5 by

I had about 200 miles on these tires. My wife and I rode up to north Georgia to ride The Gauntlet. A 135 mile run with lots of twists, s-turns and switchbacks. These tires performed better than I could have expected. They gripped the road like they were glued to it. Never had one issue. Even hitting 20mph turns at 40 mph I had no problems. Highly recommend these tires.

5 by

great tire so far rides and feels great.will buy a front to match for my swwitchback when available

5 by

definate improvement in milage

5 by

Only have a couple of hundred miles on these so can't report on mileage but hopefully these will last much longer than those Harley Dunlop tires that only last about 5k miles. But what I can say is these tires handle much better than the Dunlops and give a smooth ride.

5 by

Good tire, so far.

5 by

Was Skeptical at first to change from OEM Dunlop , However , the Michelin Commander II , is the Best Tire Purchase I have made for my Harley Ultra...there is no comparison in the Ride and comfort and I am also looking forward to the Longevity of the wear. Michelin has said, that this tire will last Twice as long ... I have bought 2 set's of Mchelin Commander II's in 3 months for 2 bikes total. I am very Pleased with my Purchase . The entire process turned out to be a pleaseant experince and I didnt have to wait very long on backorder and shipping... thanks again Gregg
