I have a 2011 Vaquero. Will the Michelin Commander lll touring tires (180/65B-16 & 130/90B-16) work well on my bike? The commander lll cruiser tire does not have a rear tire for my bike.
Jerry A on Mar 2, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hello Jerry, Michelin offers an exact match for the front, but unfortunately for the rear, they do not offer an exact match. They do offer the 180/65-16 the is similar in size and show work just fine.

Have a new commander ll on the front is it ok to put commander lll on the rear?
vance m on May 3, 2020
BEST ANSWER: As with any Auto/Motorcycle tire if it is Bias/Radial you should stay with that type - now for a Motorcycle you should keep the same tread pattern for the correct handling - especially for a bike. Hope this helps !

COMMANDER III ON 17 STREET GLIDE
I've only ridden a couple hundred miles since installing along with new HD wheels. The grip seems much better than the HD originals. I've done several upgrades to my Street Glide. IE commander III's, new wheels and legend suspension. The combination has made my Street Glide ride smoother than it ever has. It just seems to be floating on the interstate at 80. LOVE THE TIRES!

So far so good on the front tire. I've only got 300 miles so far and haven't got to ride in the rain yet but so far it feels great in the cornering. Also the tire was delivered in 4 days.
