    Comments about Michelin Commander II Motorcycle Tire:

    COMMANDER II 200/55R17 REAR, AND 80/90-21 FRONT, ARE THE FIRST REAL TIRES IVE HAD ON MY 09 SOFTAIL CUSTOM! I'M ON MY 7TH REAR TIRE SINCE I BOUGHT MY BIKE NEW! IT HAS 48,323 MILES ON IT! IVE GOT OVER 1,000 MILES ON THE NEW COMMANDERS AND THEY STILL LOOK BRAND NEW! THEY HAVE A FOOTPRINT OF ABOUT 3-1/2", COMPARED TO THE DUNLOP AND METZELER'S 1" WIDE FOOTPRINT! I KNOW THESE TIRES ARE GONNA LAST TWICE AS LONG AS ALL THE OTHERS! THEY ROCK!

    Michelin Commander II front tire

    By Brad

    from San Diego, CA

    See all my reviews

    Pros

    • Handling
    • Looks great
    • price
    • Quiet ride

    Cons

    • none

    Best Uses

    • OE upgrade
    • Street use

    Comments about Michelin Commander II Motorcycle Tire:

    I have this on a 09 Harley Softail Crossbones. The aggressive tread pattern looks great and it handles much better than the OE Dunlops. Smoother ride and better tracking in turns. The price is undeatable. I have only had it on for about 100 miles but there is a noticable difference. Even if it turns out to have a shorter tread life the price and handling make it well worth it.

    Best Uses

      Comments about Michelin Commander II Motorcycle Tire:

      well what can i say besides MICHELIN TIRES ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      other than the front tire tread pattern appearing to go the wrong direction the tires ride great. looks good and the front tire needed NO wheel weights to balance and the rear only needed 1/2oz to balance. i went back and forth between the commander II's and the dunlop and glad i went with the commander II. hope they continue to make this tire so i can buy it again when i need a new set. so if ur thinking about tires give these a shot. glad i did

            Thank you for your question. No these do not have the load index required for the bike. The tire will need to be reinforced tires. What are the front and rear tire sizes? I can verify the load index of any tires for you.

        • Q:

          I have a honda vtx 1300t and wanted to get these tires. my specs for the front tire is 140/80-17. I see you only have a 140/75r-17. would that tire be ok to put on since it is a radial tire and the back tire would be a bias ply and whats the difference between the bias ply and radials.
          Asked on 8/27/2012 by rick from conn

          1 answer

          • CUSTOMER CARE

            A:

            Thank you for your question. The 140/75R-17 is 5 millimeters shorter height to the rim. Side by side the 75r is 5 mm shorter. The difference is in the way the body cords are put in the tire . A bias tire has the body cords (plies) on an an angle (bias) to each other. A radial tire has the body plies running parallel. The advantage of a radial tire is that it runs cooler, making it last longer. A bias tire does not "bulge" at the bottom so it is not as prone to be damaged as easly to curb scuffing.
