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.

Favorite street tire
Love the Michelin Commander II's. Compared to the stock Dunlops.... well there is no comparison. Michelins are head and shoulders above.

Best of the best
Commanders are the best handling tires I've ever used in the 40 plus years of riding.
I highly recommend them and will continue to use them. I only wish I had remembered to get new valves in the 45° for easyer check

Great tire for the Southern Heat!
I have been running the front & rear Michelin Commander 2 tires now for years. I was fed up of other brand tires wearing out so fast. Being from Canada in the cool dry weather is totally different from down here in the heated south. I highly recommend trying these tires. I just finished a ride from Memphis, TN To Ontario, Canada over 2100 miles in 4 days in heavy rain & it was really performing to the max.

IS THE MICHELIN COMANDER II FRONT TIRE DIRECTIONAL?
A shopper on Jul 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is directional.
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.
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: Run with OEM specs to start. If you feel you need to change for better performance, make small adjustments.

A shopper on Jul 15, 2019
