Much better than the stock Dunlop ties
5
Going from the stock Dunlop to these on my 2007 Ultra Classic made huge difference in the handling of the motorcycle. These tires make the bike feel much more stable when going into curves, I didn't ride in too much rain this year, butte when I did the toes felt stable with good grip. I have about 8000 miles on them and think I should get another 8000 miles before they need to be replaced.
Pros: :
  • handling
Cons: :
  • none so far

The best tire for cruisers
5
Bought this tire last year to replace Metzeler ME880. All my previous tires (Dunlops, Pirelli and Metzeler) held up to only 7-10k miles. This Michelin Commander II rear tire showed belts at ~17k miles, front tire still has at least another 7k before going bold. 70% of my miles are work commute, but the rest are either 2-up or loaded with camping gear. Will be placing order for a new tire after I finish wring this review. I recommended this tire to everyone looking to replace theirs, and already have a few friends who switched to Commander II and glad they did. This tire has great traction for all weather except for snow. I ride in winter too, and had a few slips/wipe outs in snow, but for the rest of the weather its great.
Pros: :
  • milage
  • Great traction
Cons: :
  • Price
  • Not Good Snow Traction

2010 FLHTK
5
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.
Pros: :
  • Traction

what is the difference between a bias vs a radial rear tire on the michelin commander 2?????
amiee, New York
A Bias ply rear tire is built for heavier cruisers that are very heavy, and Radial ply tires are for the lighter faster bikes and can not handle the heavy weight of the larger cruisers.

Manufacturer dates can not be guarantied as we ship from multiple warehouses, and we hold stock on shelves for the length suggested by the manufacturer of the tires. The only way to choose your date code would be to select it off our warehouse's show room floor located at: 555 South H Street, San Bernardino, CA 92410. Each manufacturer has there own suggested shelf life, and a warranty that covers them to that date. Most tires have a minimum shelf life of 7 years. We strictly adhere to the shelf life dates per that tires manufacturer's specifications and all tires are inspected before shipping.
