Dunlop American Elite - Front Tire - 200/55-17

Comments On Oct 05, 2015:I had the original Dunlop D401 rear tires and only managed to get 6200 miles out of the tires with 1/32nd of tread remaining in the center. I had terrible cupping on the RIGHT side of the tread that actually wore completely smooth. I was told that this was because the tire wasn't always properly inflated. I'm hoping to get about 12k miles out of these tires. The 200 series tires are just notorious for getting poor mileage. A new D401 200 series tire starts out with 8/32nd of tread. And these American Elite tires start out with only just a hair more of 9/32nd of tread. The main contributing factor is that this particular rear tire is "MULTI-TREAD." So it is suppose to have harder compound in the center for longer mileage and softer on the outside for grip around corners. I hope this is true and have high expectations for this tire. I will def buy this tire again because it's American made! BTW, always check the air pressure in this tire--especially for heavier cruisers. I run it at 42 psi COLD. I do this in order to maximize mileage and prevent premature failure.

Excellent tires, Service, & Price

Comments On Sep 13, 2015:I delayed posting a review until I had time to do some riding on the Dunlop Elite tires. After replacing both front & rear tires on my Harley Ultra I went on a 2484 mile road trip vacation with a trailer in tow. During the trip I rode on, Warm Dry, Wet & Rainy, & Cool temps. The trip took me through the mountains of TN, NC, VA, WV, KY, and the tires performed great on different road surfaces as well as wet roads. I would definitely recommend the Dunlop American Elite tires to anyone needing new tires or looking for an upgrade in tires.
