Very pleased as usual


this tire was highly recommended from a Harley mechanic, installed it with matching front tire, was like I was on a new different bike...highly recommend it


Have had the tire on for less than 1000 miles chucks of the tire are coming off in the center of the tire. I can send pictures . Should get new tire . Will be out alot with mount and balance $$


I bought several Elite they are the best tire i purchase so far great mileage out of them .way better than the Dunlap 402. Also quick shipping I will stay with the elite I get the white walls they look great on my road king. It's a good price on them too.


Very quick shipping. Received in less than 48 hours.


It was easy and fast to order these products the deliver was very fast as well. Now it the weather would cooperate I could go ride :)


Put this tire on my bike, no complaints. Put them on my wife's, says her bike "glides now". Very pleased with the tires.


Real happy with customer service. I had an issue with getting offered discount when placing order online , I called in and it was resolved immediately. I received a fantastic deal on new tires (saved $100+ compared to HD dealer). Very happy. Jimmy D


best mileage of any tire that I have tried.


Great tires


I love Dunlops, mount easy wear well, grip good.


Go for the elite line of products, way more sidewall for the money. Great tire


This is my 2nd set. They last longer then the Dunlop D402 tires.


Great Product


awesome tire. as soon as I hit the ground running notice different. Dunlop owner for life now


8000 miles but 2000 of that was towing a trailer. thought i would make it through a riding season, guess not.


Great service and fast shipping. J&P is a great company to deal with.


Hold in curves is really strong. Seems to have solved the Harley "Electra Glide wobble" condition.


fast shipping great price will be ordering again


My Bike: 2007 Road Glide (configured like an Ultra). Tire mounted in December 2014. Normal Ride Conditions: 2 up, long trips (IL, MO, KS, NE, SD, WY, CO). Total rider, passenger, and luggage weight: ~430 lbs. The tire is solid in wet, dry, cold, and hot conditions and provides positive feedback without transferring rough road conditions to my backside; however, the tire wear on the last trip (3200 miles) was not great and I lost ~5/32 over the 9 day trip. To be fair, the trip included unfinished milled surface roads in NE, CO, KS, and WY. Tire wear under solo conditions was great; nearly 2/32 over a 9 month period covering ~2200 miles so far. I ride all year and cover ~8000 miles, and this tire really out-performed the previous Metzeler ME880 over the same roads, under the same conditions where I lost all of the tread after ~3500 miles. The tire has 3/32 remaining so I will purchase another soon. This tire lasts longer and performs better than anything else I have used.


After having this rear tire on my daily rider road king a few months, I'm satisfied with the product. It looks great, hugs the turns, and helps to give a nice smooth ride. American made is always a plus. Great price and delivered as promised.


Good value. A little stiff at first but and great handling tire once they break in. Sticks to the corners great.


Have about 4000 miles so far. Great ride and good wear. Will repurchase when it is worn out.


Good looking tread design bike sits nice looks a bit wider than original just put on have to see how it wears.


Ordered this set of tires they came in when expected got them mounted up and have been on the bike for about 1 month now. I ride nearly every day and have been quite satisfied with the way these tires grip the road! It is too early to see how they will wear.




Great Deal!!!

Nice job J&P


Great tire. Super Fast Shipping + A rebate. Who could ask for more.


Tread looks WAY deeper than the D402 stock Dunlop, this should get me more than the 7Kmi. No freight, no tax....J&P Rocks!


Great tire..excellent wear,fast service and great price..


I have been using Dunlop Tires for over 25 years, REALLY a Great Tire


This is a very nice tire. Increased Confidence because it grips well. Riding 2 up my wife said it felt like a whole different motorcycle. I hope the mileage claims are true.


Anticipating a great life out of this tire. Finally upgrading from the old D402's.


Tire was exactly what I wanted and arrived way before I expected it!


Love this tire, only riding on it for a few weeks but handles great. Great service at a great price, why buy any place else.

The American Elite rides & handles better than the Elite III. No mileage states yet.


Quick delivery. Great feel.


Great price, amazing tire! Can't believe the difference between this tire and my last one. Cannot report on longevity or tread wear yet as I've only put 300 miles on this tire so far.

Nice tire for 07 street glide ordered on the Sunday night received Wednesday, riding on the weekend


I like the fact that they are new tires not old stock.great deal.

8 balls

great product, shipping was only 5 days! can beat that


i like the new tread design, and dunlap is supposed to have a new compound to make the tire get more miles.


I have been purchasing from JP Cycle for several years, always have fast response times and their products are just like OEM or better. I attended last years open house and it was awesome, I look forward to continuing to purchase from you.
