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

  Posted:

great tires great price J P always comes through

  Posted:

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

  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.

  Posted:

Grate tire and fast service

  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.

  Posted:

Great tire and look for my riding style

  Posted:

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

  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!

  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.

  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.

  Posted:

nice....

  Posted:

Good ride from this tire!

  Posted:

Nice Dunlop replacement

  Posted:

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

  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.

  Posted:

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

  Posted:

definate improvement in milage

  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.

  Posted:

Good tire, so far.

  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
