Product Details

Dunlop Elite 4 Motorcycle Tire

The Dunlop Elite 4 Motorcycle Tire is a mileage eating machine! Elite 4 rear tires utilize Dunlop’s MT Multi-Tread technology with a long-wearing compound in the center of the tire and a lateral-grip compound on each shoulder, providing increased mileage without sacrificing handling. MT Multi-Tread rear tires provide significantly more mileage than single-compound tires. The Elite 4 has a new tread pattern which helps provide class-leading wet-pavement performance, even wear over the life of the tire, and less road noise. Available in radial and bias-ply construction, the Elite 4 fits hundreds of touring, cruiser and standard bikes, including current and non-current machines

    Features:
  • New tread pattern helps provide class-leading wet-pavement performance, even wear over the life of the tire, and less road noise.
  • All Elite 4 rear tires utilize Dunlop’s MT Multi-Tread technology with a long-wearing compound in the center of the tire and a lateral-grip compound on each shoulder, providing increased mileage without sacrificing handling
  • Available in radial, bias belted and bias-ply construction, the Elite 4 fits hundreds of touring, cruiser and standard bikes, including current and non-current machines
  • Made in the USA

The VTX-1300 doesn't have a lot of tires that fit it. This one seemed to be highly rated and on a considerable close out sale - which seems counter intuitive. However, it is the same brand as the OEM and touts excellent wet handling, which is a big concern of mine. It is also supposed to support long mileage as well. We shall see...
John on Sep 29, 2020
My rear tire was wearing way to fast on our rough roads in Northern Ca. These tires were designed to get more milage. We will see!

Radial in rear. Bias on frt . Is that ok to run ?
.
A shopper on Jan 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Honest opinion. Its never a good idea to mix radial and bias .Rolling resistance and complete constuction differences will allow the radial tire to have much more traction than the bias ply which will affect the overall handling . I for 1would want each end of the bike acting and rolling the same
