    Details

      The MICHELIN Commander II creates a new standard with regard to durability, yet without making any compromises in terms of wet weather grip, maneuverability or stability. This performance balance provides yet another eloquent illustration of Michelin's research and development philosophy: no performance gain to be achieved on one front to the detriment of another.
    • Rubber compounds provide remarkable wet grip, without compromising durability.
    • Adt (Amplified Density Technology) provides a highly dense more rigid tire casing which helps deliver excellent feedback and handling in all conditions.
    • The square bead-wire package improves casing rigidity, handling and ease of installation.
    • Silica Rain Technology (SRT) which integrates silica into the compound of the tire tread, while the MICHELIN Commander II's tread pattern has been designed to prevent all forms of uneven wear.
    • The exclusive architecture of the MICHELIN Commander II brings both maneuverability and stability. The tire's more rigid, high-density carcass improves maneuverability, while the aramid fiber crown ply of the rear tire enhances resistance and lightness for impeccable stability, even at high speeds.
    • The numerous longitudinal grooves of the tire's tread pattern optimize water dispersal for outstanding wet weather grip.

    Great tire for a great price
    I chose this tire for my 2012 Electra Glide Limited because the original tire had worn out after 18K miles. I had to replace the rear tire after only 10K miles so I wasn't a big fan of the OEM Dunlops. I had heard only good things about the Michelin Commander II so that's what I went with for the rear tire. That was two years ago and I've been very please with the performance and wear since then. When I looked for the best price on a new front tire I kept coming back to Rocky Mountain ATV. I also managed to catch it on sale so added bonus!

    Best motorcycle tire on the market
    I run these on my 2012 Road King and LOVE them. I have about 4k miles on them and can't even tell they've been used yet. The ride is absolutely amazing and smooth. Excellent traction whether dry or wet. They may cost a bit more than some other brands but I can tell already they are going to last plenty long to make up for the slightly higher price.

    I ride a Roadmaster, but it is not an available selection. The Commanders are outstanding long run tires, you do have to go up 1/2 inch on the rear as there are no 180/60 16 tests, but this has not been an issue.

    Does Michelin provide suggested tire pressures or should I use OEM spec's even though these are not OEM tires I'm replacing? My Bike is a 2013 Harley Davidson Dyna FLD Switchback with ABS.

    The OEM tires being replaced are:
    Front - Dunlop D402F 130/70 B18 (73V)
    Rear - Dunlop D401 160/70 B17 (63H)

    The new tires purchased are:
    Front - Michelin Commander II 130/70B-18 (63H)
    Rear - Michelin Commander II 160/70B-17 (73V)
    Tim Q on May 10, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I believe that the pressure suggestion is printed on the sidewall.
    I've always just kept both tires at 35PSI
    What does (63h)mean ?
    A shopper on May 2, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: 63H refers to the speed and load rating. This tire has a load rating of 600 pounds and a speed rating of 130 MPH.
    What does the "b" stand for?
    A shopper on Sep 29, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: The "B" in the tire size stands for Bias Belted which is the construction of the tire.
