stan b on Jul 19, 2019
Original equipment and very satisfied with the tires
Gilbert M on Jul 18, 2019
After asking a lot of people and reading everything I could I landed on these Dunlop 401 tires because of the good feedback, wear considerations, traction, sidewall strength, load rating and mileage(although the mileage is not the highest it is a good trade-off with traction). For a heavy cruiser the load bearing numbers are needed. Dunlop is by far the best selection of tires that exists anywhere. Do your homework.

My mechanic told me to get a Dunlop 401 F, is this the same tire? Secondly I have a spoked front wheel I think I need a tube as well.
null on Jun 14, 2012
BEST ANSWER: the F stands for Front tire and if you have a spoked wheel then you will need a tube. my understanding is that you cannot use a tube in a tubeless tire or a a tubed tire without a tube. i ride a superglide and i use a d401, great tire.

Great tire. Great price.
Dunlop 401s are essentially the best tires for my Harley Davidson. They handle the weight very well, excellent road stability and cornering without losing traction in those sharp turns. I recommend them to all my friends who need this type of tires for thier sleds.
