Dunlop American Elite Motorcycle Tire. Dunlop's new, 2nd generation American Elite tires deliver even more mileage for greater all-around performance.This is the only replacement motorcycle tire for Harley-Davidson motorcycles that is designed, tested, and made in America. The tread design provides even tread wear and quiet operation in wet and dry conditions.The American Elite delivers enhanced tire mileage thanks to an MT Multi-Tread rear tire compound that incorporates a long-wearing compound in the center of the tire, along with a lateral-grip compound on each shoulder for great handling. The American Elite sidewall design proudly features the American Elite name and a Made in USA logo. This Dunlop serves as a great alternative to the Dunlop D408F/D407 tires that came as standard equipment on the FL series machines. Now Available in a variety of sizes and sidewall styles, including black, narrow white wall, and wide white wall.

    Comments about Dunlop American Elite Motorcycle Tire:

    Bike Bandit by far has the best pricing for tires out of any online retailer. I bought this for my 08 FLHX and am having it installed this winter,so have no expereience of the actual quality of the tire itself yet. (otherwise, rating might have been higher, or lower) However, BB is great to buy from, lightning fast shipping and will keep my business as long as this is maintained. Thanks

        A:

        Thanks for your question John! The size conversion on the MH90-21 is 80/90-21 in metric so it would be a bit narrower than the 90/90-21. Please feel free to give us a call if you have any questions 1-888-339-3888.

        Thanks for your question! This tire would be a few MM taller but should not cause any clearance issues. We always recommend checking with a tire maufacturer for approved sizes.
