Ordered Michelin Front Tire for my Ultra Limited at 4:00 in the afternoon and it was at the front door by 1:00 then next afternoon, free standard shipping.


Bought these to replace the factory Dunlops on my 2015 Harley Ultra Limited and have been extremely pleased with them. As of now, two years later I have put over 31000 miles on them and they still have about 30% of their tread left on it. Since Biketoberfest is this week again and the Harley dealers will not install the Commander II's as they carry the "Scorcher 31" I will be replacing these this year again even though I have tread left. Run with increased pressure on the front tire (+4 lbs) to prevent cupping was recommended to me by the Michelin rep when I had them installed and I did that and it does help significantly to prevent cupping.


I replaced my stock tires two years ago with these. I got 10000 On front tire and 11000 On stock tires. I have 4000 On front and 3000 On back tire next to no wear on tires. I have a 2012ultra classic and the handling and ride in all weather but ice and snow is AWESOME I'm sold on these tires


Heard good things about this tire, I will be able to comment after about 10,000 miles!


I based this 4 star on word of mouth I haven't had mine on the ground as yet if I like this tire I will change the rating but I rarely give anything a 5 star

You will notice a big difference from the standard Dunlap tires on the Harleys. I noticed the ride on the way home from the dealer installing them that on a curve with the cut grooves in the road they hardly shimmied at all.... big difference. Now, I bought my second front tire because they are great tires (back tire didn't need replacing yet).


FAST delivery! - A day early! As always great service! - Called with a price from a competitor and being a long time customer JP beat the price by 30 bucks. Awesome! Tires: Update on the new Michelin. Commander's. For those that are interested. Lol I really did not expect to notice a major difference between the Commander's and the Dunlop's to my surprise there is a huge difference, the ride, handling, cornering hard on my 2015 Road King floor boards scraping felt much more secure, across the board the overall contact to the ground felt better, just a nicer ride altogether. 200 miles yesterday very pleased. Definitely won't be going back to the Dunlop's. Will have to wait and see on how they handle in the rain, wear and mileage produced.


Great price for this tire


The price was good. Free shipping made it great! I've used Dunlops for over 30 years but after hearing positive comments about these Commander II's I thought I'd give them a try. I'm hoping the tires will perform as well as J&P.


Great tire and fast delivery

bill schaber

Very pleased with quality of tire.


same as riding on the rear tire braaaap


Very happy so far. Nice feel and feedback. Looks great too.


Very happy with the purchase. The delivery process was good and the price was as low as I'd seen. Have only ridden a few miles on the new tire so I can't say much about the advertised longevity. I guess I'll have to wait and see.


Running this paired with a HD Dunlop on rear, handles and rides great.


Great tires on dry pavement. A little unsure on wet.


Quick shipping great product half the price of the dealer


I purchased my first set for my 09 ultra and the second set for my13 ultra classic. They wear longer than original tires and are quieter in curves.I had problems with cupping on the 09.dunlops and they were replaced under warranty.Michelins fixed the problem.


Best tire available for Harley touring bikes. Great grip and lasts the longest of any tire I've run.


While on a trip I ruined my rear tire and replaced it with a Michelin. I had it balanced with the silicone balancing beads which worked great because of the smooth liner in the Michelin tire. I had Metzler ME 888 on the bike and they have a rough liner which is not good for this type of balancing system. The Metzler gets better mileage wear then the Michelin but I would have to use lead stick on weights.


Like the way they handle. Haven't had the tires long enough to rate them 5 stars but so far so good. Seem to grip the road better then the Dunlop tires that were on the bike. HD Ultra Classic. Received the tires in 4 days which is not bad.


Great service by J & P, will continue to use them. The tires however are a different story.They ride great on dry roads. However on worn tar, and especially wet roads they lose traction really bad. I have about 4000 miles on these but will most likely go back to the Dunlops.


good price fast shipping


good price fast shipping


Excellent tire. Price was even better! I will buy all my tires from J&P.


best price on these tires love them great grip in curves too


Like these tires smooth running .decent mileage out of them.




Will buy again.


Good tire. Fast shipping. Good price. Will order again.


Quick shipping and these new tires seem to ride better... hoping to see the promised mileage


Great product.


Great tire and put it through the test on flooded road in a down pour.. Performed great


seem to have good traction dry or wet


Stiff ride but better than the Dunlops


J&P always has the best price and the fastest shipping ,usually for free. These Michelin tire are great


Very quick shipment. Great tire.


In 23 days I road 14,025 miles and the tires still have a lot of tread left. The only complaint I have is after about 2,000 miles the front tire started a high pitched whine when you get off center going into turns.


Good looking tire like the way it rides and love the way it rolls thought corners.


I purchased this tires to replace the Harley OEM Dunlap tire. Just got back from the mountains where the tire handled great, They hold to the road and handle great in curves.


Excellent product extremely pleased!


Looks great, now if I get a lot of miles on these I'll be completely satisfied
