I have a set of American Elites on my 2012 harley electra glide. They have 19000 miles on them and still have tread on them. I ride two up and pull a trailer on most trips. Its a great tire.


I get great mileage and Superior handling from the Dunlop. I just ordered another rear tire and was a little disappointed that was made in 2012. It has a little tried on the sides of the tire making it not so good riding in the rain. I returned it with no problem. Since then, they have added depth to the tread. Don't be afraid to look at the manufacturing date on the side of the tire. They probably won't post this but I thought I should let all you riders know


Fast shipping, good price. I run Dunlop tires and am well pleased with ride and handling, and I get great mileage out of them.


Great tire...


Now that I'm ready to replace this tire I'll go ahead and leave a review. I've gotten right at 20,000 mi on it now and the tread still has some life left but it won't make the season so it's time to replace it. I got 22,000 mi out of my OEM HD Dunlop so the mileage is right in line with what I would expect. (Disclaimer: I should have replaced the original tire at 20,000 as it had cords starting to show at 22,000) Very pleased with the performance of this tire and I will continue to use these as long as they keep giving me good mileage. It also has that "Made in U.S.A." label that is so important to me.


Great handling delivery service


Always best value for the money from J&P and very fast shipping. I buy all my tires from J&P.


My 2015 original Dunlop rear tire is 20,000 miles in and has performed well. Definitely time to be replaced. I will stick with these until proven wrong. A side note for the high's and low's of the reviews is that riding style plays a part in the wear on any tire.


Bought this with a matching Front in proper size I have 20K on them and just replacing them cause they are starting to whine in the corners. Excellent tires highly recommend.


Bought this with a matching Front in proper size I have 20K on them and just replacing them cause they are starting to whine in the corners. Excellent tires highly recommend.


Great value, handles well and smooth ride. My first aftermarket tire and I'm very happy about this decision to purchase this Dunlop American Elite.


Purchased tires one year ago and 12,000 miles. The sides are worn very unevenly and cupping severely but the center treat is very deep still. I religiously check my tire pressure weekly and even double checked with three gauges as I was told low tire pressures causes this so I wanted to be sure my gauges were not wrong. They are all right on. I'm very disappointed in the quality of these tires and I'm finding that lots of my HD friends are now having to replace there tires yearly due to these type of issues related to this new multi type tread.


it's pretty good.


great product!










The tires came quickly, were the perfect fit and were more than $155 less than Harley Davidson wanted which almost paid for the mounting. There is no difference in the tire or the quality of the tire. Excellent; highly recommend.


Very good tire, got 18,124 miles out of it. It also had a 2 inch nail in the tire when it was change! Never leaked any air. Just bought another one


Same tire Harley puts on there bikes but cheaper because it doesn't have the Harley name on it. Great tire have had three sets of these.


Great tire. Replaced the D407 factory upgrade tire, better ride quality noticed immediately. Looking forward to longer tread life. 2010 FLHTCUI 110 Stage II. Fast shipping. Great price.


Have installed and seems to be just fine.


Good tire. Great service from J & P. Quick delivery.


I am very happy with the tires I purchased and the price! I was surprised at how fast they were shipped out.


Awesome tires for my harley, JP Cycle is the only place I will buy tires from


awsum tires!replaced my originals on my flhxs.great milage,great handling,like this model better than the stk dunlops.they cupped on rear but worked well.getting my rebate card from dunlop was easy 40$ back was a cinch and I love that they are made in the U.S.A. can't say that michelin...


Great tire, second one I have bought.


Good product, fast shipping,and the brands I look for decent prices. J&P for me.


I got 15300 miles out of this tire so I bought another one for my street glide, very happy with this tire.


Fast shipping. Good price


Vary fast service. Tire came right away. Got it mounted and seems to be close to OEM not able to ride now that the snow got here


So-so tire ...


Dunlop always made a good tire, over 12000 miles on first rear tire, hope this one does as well


Great tire and fast shipping.


JP cycles are great but try submitting the rebate to Dunlop. Good luck.

Troy Mohlis

very prompt on shipping


it's a tire


Best price I found ballanced out good. Ride good. Got them fast


Pricing and delivery were excellent! Shipping only took 2 days! However, I submitted the proper forms for the Dunlop Rebate and my claim was denied! I can't get a response from Dunlop/Goodyear as to why it was denied. JP Cycles service is top notch!


I'm happy with the tire. It is a good tire for a good price and they delivered quickly,I have no complaints


Was prompt and quick on delivery. Will use JP cycles again. Thanks guys.


Tire fit well, and was great quality


Great tire at a good price


Excellent tire! I put over 18,000 miles on the first one so I see no reason to switch from this tire. Handles great and wears evenly. I recommend this tire.


This tire came with the bike when I purchased it and repurchased it because it is highly rated .


Great place


Never mounted this yet as it was on sale for a good price,so i bought it to have in stock. But from past experiences with Dunlop tires i'm sure it will be a good choice for my StreetGlide.


I have priced these tires online and found JP to be very competitive if not beating most competitors prices.


I like this new tire, price is right! Rebate awesome!! Bike handles great..


These tires don't have the HD name on them like the former ones did, although these have the word American in bold letters & they are made in the USA. These tires hug the corners a lot better & the tread pattern is an improvement over the original tires. I got 17k miles out of the previous tires, only time will tell how well these hold up, hopefully as good or better than the first ones.


Love them im very pleased


They look good and ride great. Good price and as always great service from JP Cycles!


Great price shipped to my installer will purchase again.


first time ordering from JP Cycles, it was very easy to find what I was looking for and it came when they said it would. two thumbs up. Will look at to JP Cycles first for all my bike needs


I get more miles from Dunlop than others. About 10,000.


Great tire for the money. Would definitely by another.


Great Tire at a great price! As always J&P Cycles Delivered on time! Great company to do business with!


This is the second one I have bought from here and got good mileage out of it. Very pleased with this tire!


Tire rides great, but could be because it's so much better than the one it replaced (12k miles on the stock replacement from HD). I'll do another review after about 2k miles and we'll see if it's still a 5.

Leonardo Rosado

Great tire will buy again.


Great tires and a very good price on sale, this is my second set of these tires will continue to buy them in the future


A great deal as always. J & P cycles is my go to place when I need anything for my motorcycle.


Awesome tire. Wears long and grips the road for better handling. Way better than stock Harley tire.

Dan Klopp

Like how tire grips in the corners


Tire priced right and I received them quickly. Going to mount them this week.


Excellent tire, direct replacement of the HD OEM brand, and just as good, if not better. Price is much better than buying from the dealership, and I always achieve 20K or more on my Ultra.


I received my tires in two days from J&P!! Amazing delivery time! I will be buying more goodies as spring finally is here. Thanks for the great first impression!! 2012 Street Glide owner


Find that Dunlop brand is every bit as good as the Harley brand that is made by Dunlop. Quality is as good and price is much better. Cannot say enough about the customer service reps at J&P. Had a delivery problem in which UPS lost the tires I had ordered from J&P. Called and customer service sent replacements 2nd day. Awesome service!!


Great price and service.


Excellent service and quick delivery ....I've never had an issue when purchasing from J&P ....I will continue to shop on their site


Every bike I've had, has had Dunlop tires and been very pleased.


I had both my tires replaced with the Dunlop American Elites at J&P at the Sturgis Bike Rally. The handling and ride quality is notably improved over the OEM tires they replaced. So far these new Elites tread great over ridges and tar snakes on road surfaces. Highly recommend. I hope they wear as good as the OEM tires did!!!!!

Lt Russell

The tire looks good, handles great. I have about 6000 miles on it so far, still looks new. As always fast shipping and great service from J&P


looks great time will tell check back end of summer we'll see


Seems to be a very good handling tire,not much mileage yet,.Don`t hold your breath for the rebate though......


Great tire, just as nice as the HD version & if you get a sale it's worth it.


Great tire could not believe how much better my bike felt and handled when I installed it!


Tire shot at 10,000 miles cupping and cracking, same as the OEM tire


This is a awsome tire


This is my 3rd Elite. Remember they are bike tires not car tires. If you are expecting to get 20000 out of a rear tire you will be disappointed with pretty much anything out there. The Elite handles well on the road. I generally expect to buy 1 - 2 per year for the rear. It pretty much works out to 2-3 rear tires to every front tire. If you have spent the money to own a Harley. Spend the money to maintain it right and run good rubber on it. These tires are good rubber.


Great tire and fast shipping!!!!


Great tire and fast shipping!!!!


Roars like hell never buy another one


When I seen the price on front tire, I looked up price on rear, and at the price you had it listed for, there was NO WAY I couldn't get it as well. GREAT prices on both. Thank You


As advertised. Great price


The tire started out fine with under 8,000 miles the sides have started cupping, giving a wobble in turns. pressue was always good, tread still good but this should not happen untill tire is very worn! Will not buy agian!


Great price and based on the first tire, I expect awesome results out this one as well.


Great Tire and quick delivery!!!


is a nice tire and more miles...


OEM tires are all round great for performance and durability. Fast delivery, and JP had the best price I could find.


Appears to be exactly as described. Took a little longer with the delivery than stated, but all in all - ok


Very happy with the tire and the service


Direct replacement for the stock Dunlop tire on 2009 and up touring models at a much lower cost than purchasing from HD Dealer. Dunlop maintains a better tire.


Excellent tire and the best price around. Service was fast and tire arrived on time.


Put over 200 miles on the bike on Friday and these tires have an excellent ride. Much more smoother than the original tires. Highly recommended at this time.


J&P had this tire sitting on my porch 3 days after ordering it. Everything was exactly as promised and I am very happy with the tire and the speed in which I received it. A+++ rating to J&P Cycles, I will use them again!


This is a awesome tire. Over 18000 miles on the original and barely on the wear bars.


Great Deal!!!


Absolutely no problem with transitioning from the HD Dunlop to these Elites. I would recommend it to a friend. They are much cheaper, and they ride the same if not better. Go ahead and try one and see for yourself.


Awesome tires very good quality and very well priced


Nice riding tire for two people. Easy to navigate site


Super smooth transaction. Quick shipping. Item exactly as described. I am extremely happy.


great running tire


Very nice


Great response with the road, fast delivery and service.


Great tire for the price, excellent shipping time, good overall experience


Ordered this tire as replacement of factory tires and I could definitely tell a difference in feel of bike.


Standard HD tire. Nothing special, but great milage from tire.


Got about 2000 more miles on this vs. the HD Dunlop. Same riding conditions as the past 6 HD Dunlops I went through so I can't explain why the extra miles since Dunlop tire reps tell me it's the same as the HD Dunlop except for the tread pattern and sidewall lettering.


Great tred smooth ride, corners unbelievable.


The price was excellent and the packaging was above and beyond what I expected. Shipping was exceptionally fast. The tire I purchased replaced the OEM touring tire and I could not be happier. I have put about 1500 miles on it so far and as soon as it was put on I instantly could tell the difference. I will definitely purchase from here again and this time will take advantage of the Gold Club Membership.


love this tire ride better than the hd


I am extremely satisfied with both the dry and wet grip level of this tire. The price was good and received fast processing and delivery.


Great tire, fast shipping, would recommend as a great replacement for stock D407 tire.


Tire looks great on my bike!!! No complaints here!!!


Its a good tire, seems to last a little longer than expected


Great tire for the price...have bought several tires from J&P and never a problem....


Nice tire, handles well, good price.


Great service, quality parts, quick order delivery
