    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.

    Commander 2 on fatboy
    I get great tread life out of these tires. The traction is above average compared to the Dunlops. I would recommend them above stock Dunlops on a Harley Fatboy any day, I get twice the mileage on tread life

    Michelin Commander II
    From my experience tire tread on Michelin 200/55R-17 tire last a lot longer then tread on Avon Cobra or Bridgestone Exedra.
    Tread life on Dunlop American Elite H-D is similar.

    A no-brainer for my Yamaha Stratoliner!
    Outstanding tire from a Yamaha Stratoliner. This is my second set. My first that lasted over 11,000 miles. Very consistent try to cross the width of the tire. Candling is outstanding. Love this tire!

    What does the "81H" relate to?
    A shopper on Dec 22, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: 81 is the load rating, in this case 1019 pounds. H is the speed rating, 130 mph. Very good tire, very high load and speed rating.
    My rim is 18 . By 6 3/4 what size tire do I need ¿??
    A shopper on Oct 6, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: You should shop by Year, Make and Model. If you have a custom wheel size, check with the manufacturer of the wheel. Also a lot of info on the web.
    will this tire work on the front position of my 2008 royal star venture s....... size is correct but specifies rear position?
    james p on Apr 19, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The manufacturer will say NO. The tire may fit, but the tread pattern is designed for the rear not the front and as are the internals. The front from my understanding is designed for braking loads while a rear for acceleration loads. Additionally, front and rear tires are designed to work in tandem, the front moving water away from the rear and the rear grabbing traction. I believe it possible, but unwise risking your safety as unlike a car, you only have two wheels for stability in acceleration, breaking and running down the road.
    Will the tire fit on my 2014 triumph thunderbird 1600? I have checked other places and they said it would but with your chart it does not show for my bike
    A shopper on Jan 5, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Your bike calls for a 200/50ZR-17. The Michelin Commander II does not come in that size only thing close is one in 200/55VR-17 which will be 10mm taller tire(50-vs-55 aspect ratio) so it is not an exact fix. But the Metzeler Rear ME880 XXL 200/50ZR-17 would be a fine chose also.
