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.

 john.hinkel56 Posted:

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.

 posttime29 Posted:

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

 97 RK Posted:

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

 kevphill Posted:

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.

 dyna133 Posted:

I had great mileage from this tire almost 15000 miles.

 dellman Posted:

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

 jarhead 162004 Posted:

great tires great price J P always comes through

 limbo27 Posted:

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

 tacarpe Posted:

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.

 roadwarriors2007 Posted:

Grate tire and fast service

 Asmobley Posted:

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.

 MikeClark1 Posted:

Great tire and look for my riding style

 ericagirl Posted:

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

 bbawc72 Posted:

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!

 brenthahn71 Posted:

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.

 afludnu Posted:

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.

 dadreiling Posted:

Good ride from this tire!

 ndauber Posted:

Nice Dunlop replacement

 jkennon Posted:

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

 sorgeb Posted:

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.

 Ray Damron Posted:

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

 jpaynejr Posted:

definate improvement in milage

 jtsocali Posted:

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.

 Hooahgolf Posted:

Good tire, so far.

 purpleace41 Posted:

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

 froberts12004 Posted:
