American Elite Vs. Harley Davison OEM

Comments On Jul 02, 2014:You folks do know that the American Elite brand of Dunlop tire is the same carcass as the OEM Dunlop 407 & F408 with Harley Davidson branded on the sidewall? Both tires are made in New York state by Dunlop in the same plant. American Elite tires have "American Elite" stamped on the sidewall instead of "Harley Davidson" as do the OEM tires. The American Elite tires also have a different sipes pattern on the tread to differentiate. These tires only fit 2009 and up HD bikes. 20k to 25k miles is pretty common for rear tires and 30k for fronts.

Don't be fooled by the price!!!

Comments On Mar 15, 2014:I bought this rear tire about 1 year ago for my 12' HD Street Glide & I couldn't be more pleased. I've put about 12,000+ miles on this rear tire and it still has at least 50% of its tread left. And that's good considering I've got the scoot dynotuned, stage 1 upgrade and 255 SE cams. Yea, I get on it from time to time. It's a great riding tire. I have not one single complaint. My riding varies from interstate to back roads to around town riding. So I'd say I've given it equal exposure to all types of riding. A great tire for a great price!!!! Plus Jake Wilson shipping is free & lightning fast. You will NOT be disappointed. Gonna slap a new set on in July before I head to Sturgis!!!!!!

Not real happy

Comments On Mar 29, 2013:First I want to say I have a 02 Ultra pulling a 06 HD sidecar. Yes I know tires wear out faster when pulling a sidecar. I am going to be lucky to get 5K out of this tire if that. I get a little more out of the D402. I was hopping to get at least 7K but no way. Going back to the D402. Sure wish on of the big companies would come out with a good tire for on the back for those that run hacks!

Best in 40 years of riding!

Comments On Aug 23, 2011:I have 14,000 on these tires and they look as though I may get another 5,000 out of them. I ride pretty aggressive at times and the bike is also used as a daily commuter. I only wish they would have the thin or wide whitewall as an option. They do look good if you paint the raised lettering though!

Additional Comments On Sep 03, 2012:I ride daily and aggressive at times and still got 23,000 out of them. They were mounted on my 2010 Ultra Classic and even had a sidecar attached to it for 1500 of those miles,which is very rough on tires! I left on a 3,000 mile trip when they had 15,000 plus on them and returned to still be able to use them!

Great replacement tire

Comments On Sep 03, 2012:This tire is on pace to outlast the oem tire that came stock on my 2011 Harley limited by many miles. The best I could do on the oem tire was 13,000 miles, that many miles and yes what am I whining about? Chacked the American elite tire before install and it had 10/32nd of tread to be had new. After 11,000 miles I still have 7/32nds to go. I am guessing this tire will see 16,000 at this pace. Most of my riding is two up with the wife and all her crap she thinks she needs to carry, and to put it into prespective the bike is just over 1 yr old and we turned 24,000 on our last ride yesterday, so yes we put some miles on it. Long enough, so in closing this tire is wearing GREAT and handles just as good as the oem at almost 1/2 the price so I orderd another so I can change it when I get it out in the spring!!!!!! Also running the mate on the front, just as good.
