A new standard in cruiser tire longevity
– Commissioned third-party tests* show that the MICHELIN® Commander® II rear tire lasts almost twice as long its nearest rivals

Innovative technology
– Amplified Density Technology: A highly dense, more-rigid tire casing, which helps deliver excellent feedback and handling
– Aramid tread plies on the rear tire resist centrifugal growth, reduce weight and provide excellent stability
– All-new rubber compounds for remarkable wet grip, without compromising durability
– Square bead-wire package improves casing rigidity, handling and ease of installation

i have had these on my bike  for 8 months  now  and  had  about 8700 miles on them  rain or shine i have plenty of grip  really stable  and  no significant wear showing front still looks new  rear  is at about  3/4 tread  front  looks like  it was just put on. i swear by it now since my last dunlop  got 6300 miles and  had 3 inch wide pattern of cords showing . but  think  what you like  i will not buy anything else.

When they separate early from all the cracking at grooves, You are on your own.
 Quite a danger to the rider. Buyer BEWARE.

are these radial or bias ?

Would this suit a 150kg Yamaha Virago 250cc?

I have these on a 08 Ultra Classic. 11k in one year and still have 4 mil of thread depth left.

More sizes on the way!

Isn’t this fat tire fad a bit much? Engineers are supposed to figure out which size tire functions best on the bike they design, and I don’t think it’s all these big fat tires.

Ed Cat says:

Ya right. . .With those shallow narrow water evacuation channels that do not reach the center of the tire that new road hugging rubber compound will be floating on a platform of trapped water called hydro-planning.  This will cause the rider(s) to have a simultaneous adrenalin rush and a diaper check in a single “Gasp”.  The value chart is hype without valid measurements or tire-to-tire comparison.  To say this tire performs better that some others out there is like saying some burgers are better than others out there. Save yer money and buy a good tire or run this one in Arizona where they never have rain 🙂

Just wish they made it in my size (2012 V-Star 1300T).
