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
This is the only tire I run on my 2000 fatboy. It is a premium tire that is worth the extra expense. Its purchase and control is incredible, it is also very forgiving and predictable. Tread life is acceptable for a large cruiser and and I highly recommend this tire.

Best long mileage Tire I have ever had.
An excellent tire for my 2011 Harley Ultra Classic. The last one lasted about 30,000 miles which is excellent for a rear tire. I found the best price from Rocky Mountain.

Replaced OEM Dunlop
Great value and excellent grip on both wet and dry. Can't speak to tread life yet but from my friends that run them I expect it to be quite good.

Smooth Ride
These tires are great!!!! I’ve always run Dunlop but after putting the Commader II on the front and rear I think I will be sticking to them. I could immediately tell the difference in a smoother ride. They also are great looking tires with a different tread on them. So far I am very pleased with them and looking forward to a 2000 mile trip I have planned. Also got them from Rocky Mtn. ATV at a Great Price!!!

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.
Is the rear Commander 11, wider the front Commander 11?
A shopper on Nov 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the rear tire has a wider footprint than the front tire.
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 it fit 2006 honda vtx 1300r?
A shopper on Jul 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I installed on a 2010 Harley so i wouldnt know avout on a honda. I like the tire wears well and tracks tho
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.
What is the installed diameter/height of this michellin?
Mike H on Jun 17, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Michelin Commander II — 170/80-15

Diameter: 2 x 17.0 cm x 0.8 + 15 x 2.54 cm = 27.2 cm + 38.1 cm = 65.3 cm (25.71”)
I have a 240 / 40R 17 on my bike,
Will the 240/ 40R 18 fit?
A shopper on Jun 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: That will not. The last number is your rim diameter. This would mean you will have to change your rear rim in order for the tire to work.
