Dunlop American Elite Rear tire
This was the tire on my Harley CVO Touring motorcycle so I bought it as a replacement. No complaints but may go back to the Metzler 888 Ultra.

American elite Tires Run More Miles & Run Quieter Longer
I run American elite tires on my 2009 FLHTCU and I like them way better than the chicken foot pattern OEM tires that came stock on the HD. I get better mileage and less tire noise when the tire gets older, because of less scalloping wear on the American elite tires.

Amazing Tire in every category
Dunlop did a lot of research on this tire and it shows. I have ran every tire possible looking for performance, lots of miles, traction in every condition and this tire is the best. Do not hesitate to buy this tire.

Good tread, grips good for a cruiser tire
Good traction on wet or dry roads. I’m not sure on the mileage it will get on the Vulcan 1500cc but on my Honda Stateline it’s up to around 8K miles.

Is the thread pattern on American elite tires compatible with dunlop D402 series?
A shopper on Jan 31, 2019
BEST ANSWER: First, I did not know Dunlop is now making the American elite rear tire for the older (pre-2009) H-D.
I can only tell you, I run American elite tires on my 2009 FLHTCU and I like them way better than the chicken foot pattern OEM tires that come stock on the HD. I get better mileage, and less tire noise when the tire gets older, because of less scaloping wear on the American elite tires.
This explaines compairable, not Compatiable, so let me say this, if you mean "Compaitible" by mixing the tire patterns it may have an adverse effect for the following: ABS braking, tire to road reaction in turns, scarified road surfaces, and steel deck grated bridges, so I would advis not to mix tire pattterns, if that is what you mean by Compatiable. RM.
What is the maximum and recommended tire pressure?
Jose F on May 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Maximum pressure will be 42 psi. The recommended will be up to you, but typically you should ignore the manuals pressure guide and use the tires max for best tread life. Lower than max will give a slightly softer ride but can dramatically shorten tread life.
What is the difference in the mu85bh16 and the mt90hb16?
A shopper on May 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: mu is a 140, the mt is a 130.
85 and 90 aspect matters little in these sizes as they look identical, not in size but appearance.

I spent 7 years racing AMA & WERA Superbike. These tire stick so well, on my 2003 FXDWG, I have dragged my heels and bike parts.
Pretty cool.
Is there an American Elite rear tire that is the equivalent of a 140 width? I can’t fit a 150, and don’t like running a 130.
A shopper on Mar 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It would help to know more. ie bike it’s going on and what size rim.
You all offer military discount?
ELEUTERIO M on May 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, we do not at this time. I apologize for the inconvenience. We thank you for your service.
