2010 FLHTK

When my factory tires were ready to be changed out I immediately went for Dunlop replacements. I heard a tire rep speak about the new Commander II's from Michelin and decided to try them especially since they were cheaper. I must say they exceeded my expectations. I ride a 2010 FLHTK and they performed beautifully. I rode them to Colorado Sturgis through Montana around Yellowstone Idaho Utah etc... They ride well corner well solid in the rain and most surprising to me. I'm ready for my next set and I have over 20K miles on these. It's a no-brainer that I'm sold on the Michelins.

Best tire so far
5
2003 Road Star Midnight; I tried OEM recommended tires for two seasons. Neither brand had good handling characteristics or tread life in my opinion. Decided to try the Commander 2 front and rear for my next trip. I was immediately impressed with the handling and feedback from this tire. 3400 mile trip and it performed very well for the most part. On dry road it has excellent grip and handling cornering much better than the OEM tires. On wet road it works well but be careful on old asphalt as the tire can slip unexpectedly. I choose not to press on wet roads. Tread life well I now have 7500 miles on these tires with plenty of tread left for a couple thousand more miles. Very happy overall.

Impressed

I've been riding for 50 years 200 mi into this tire and wow I'm impressed. My '05 DWG has never felt this good. Better in the street turns & bumps. Better than anything previous to date. Dunlop was horrid Avon were decent but wore too quick & cupped. Metzler were no big thing either & also cupped. Hope they last as long like I've been hearing. Give this tire a shot I'm so glad I listened to the lady at Chaparral.

The best tire
5
After over 90000 miles on cruisers over the last 14 years this tire rode the best lasted the longest and I'm buying another one. I would say that they are out of stock at so many places reflects their quality the best.

Not so good
5
Weirdly sized- 160-70-17 was waaaay more narrow than the stock tire and enough larger in diameter that it changed the speed and took a noticeable bite out of the acceleration. THE BIGGEST BUMMER - WHEN RIDING IN THE COLD ON A SUNNY DAY IN WINTER UNDER -VERY MILD BRAKING- AT 25 MPH... THE FRONT END JUST WASHED RIGHT OUT- LIKE I WAS ON GREASED ICE!!!!! This cost me a helmet bags right side mirror and the use of my left thumb for weeks. THESE TIRES DON'T STICK RIGHT ON COLD DRY PAVEMENT!I've gone back to Dunlop American Elites and am very relieved and am Much More Stable in the high speed riding I've been doing for 47 years.

This is one great tire for a big bike having put close to 20000 miles on the rear tire. I would highly recommend this tire for all bikes I also have the matching front tire and love it too. This tire is good wet or dry and do well in curves. I ride in great smokey mountains at least twice a year.
