    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.

    I'm sold
    Although I haven't installed this purchase on my bike yet, I give these tires high marks. I didn't give them 5 stars on the traction because I don't ride like I'm testing the bike or tires. I try to be a safe responsible rider. These tires were on my last cruiser and gave me excellent performance and tire life. I bought these for my current cruiser because they were a great buy. I will install these new tires in about two months when the original equipment tire wear out.

    The Only Tires I Run
    This is a rehash of my review for the rear tire.

    I have these tires on my 99 Honda. I had them on my 08 Ultra Clssic (R.I.P.). I wore out the Dunlops that were on my 12 Ultra Limited and just replaced them with these Commader II’s. These are the stickiest tires I’ve ever seen. They grip the road like no other. The set on my Honda have 10K on them and they show no appreciable wear. These are the tires I recommend to anyone who asks my opinion, regardless of what kind of motorcycle they ride.
    I checked prices from at least eight sellers and Rocky Mountain ATV/MC beat the closest competitor by $30! Thanks, Rocky Mountain!

    Great tire... high miles... low price, what's not to love?
    Been running Commander 2s for a while now on my 2011 ultra classic. I love them. High mileage tire, stout sidewall so even 2uploaded with gear they handle great.

    Great tires. Love them. Way better than the junk dunlop e3 that was on it from factory. I had to go with a little taller tire on the rear but i haven't noticed a difference.

    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.
