    Many Long miles on these tires!!!

    Comments about Michelin Commander II Motorcycle Tire:

    I just put my second set of Michelin Comander II tires on my bike, a 2012 KAW Vulcan 1700 Voyager. I keep meticulous maintenance records. The rear is a 180/65-16 and the front is 130/90-16. I got 32,800 miles on the rear tire and 26,745 on the front tire. I probably could have gotten more miles on the front but I was getting ready for a long trip and wanted to be sure I had good tires. That's not a typo folks! I did get over 32K miles on a rear tire!!! I have 46,000 miles on the bike and I've owned it since December 2012.

    Unbelievable Tires!

    Comments about Michelin Commander II Motorcycle Tire:

    I have abused these tires for almost 9000 miles over the last two summers. I have my second set waiting to be installed this spring. I ride a 2008 Night Train and use it as if it were a sport bike. These tires have outstanding traction in wet and dry conditions! I have absolutely nothing bad to say about these tires. I very have rarely had to chase the bike down a crack or tar snake in the road. With the original Dunlop tires, the bike was always twitching over such things. I did not see double the wear out of these tires. I never expected to. But, did get much more enjoyment out of every mile with them. I have found that BikeBandit has the absolute best prices on these and their customer service is second to none. As long as I have a motorcycle, Michelin will be my tire and BikeBandit will be my supplier!

        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.

        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. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you by contacting us by email at Sales@bikebandit.com, Live Chat or by phone toll free at 888-339-3888. We are more than happy to help.
