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

Replacing a tire that was too damaged by a puncture
Christopher F on Jul 13, 2019
decent price, always super fast shipping, with current date codes on tires. Have bought all of the tires for both of my Goldwings from Bike Bandit. The Dunlop E4 is perfect for my GL1500. I have over 14,000 miles on the current tire, and only replacing it due to a dadburn screw it picked up, as the tire has plenty of meat still left on it.
J. A on Jul 9, 2019
I’ve heard nothing but good things about these tires, so I’m giving them a try on my 2016 Victory Magnum X1 Stealth.

best tire
Clay M on Jun 17, 2019
I have tried other brand tires. Dunlop is an overall great choice. It is a harder tire, hence it last longer. Great for cornering too. My first set lasted two years as a weekend rider. Other brands i have tried didnt last as long, however in all fairness, the other brand was a softer tire.

Heard they are harder and will average higher mileage
gary r on May 21, 2019
Put a radial one on my 2012 Gold Wing..handles fantastic...now a bias on my 1998 Gold wing. I like the center groove helps a lot if you have to go across grass doesn't slip out from under you like the solid center.
Donald H on May 20, 2019
OME on Honda Gold Wings. Proven tire,correct load rating
Chris G on May 19, 2019
Reviews claim higher mileage and are the same as the MH90/21 tires. Hoping for a little taller profile to fill space between fender & tire.
Marvin L on May 19, 2019
I have had good luck with Dun lop tires over the years

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

Great quiet ride with excellent grip!!!
My 4th Goldwing and all I have rode are Dunlop. Never failed me even when I had to plug them to get home and had to ride for several hours on it plugged. Wasn't the tires fault that needed to be plugged, both were nails.

Short term review, 500 miles. They smoothed out the ride from the E3s that we’re on the bike. Seem to have decent wet weather adhesion. They are holding air... i’ll update if there’s an issue. 05 Goldwing.
