Tires: MICHELIN® Commander® II
Motorcycle: 2013 Harley-Davidson FXDC
Annual Mileage: 10,000+
Location: Coeur D Alene, Idaho

I just put on the Commander ll about 3 weeks ago I can really tell the difference in it sticking to the road. But I have to say I’m really impressed with my last tire it was the original one when I got my motorcycle new in 2013. It was the Scorcher. I got over 30,000 miles out of that front tire and if this one holds true I should get well over that with the Commander ll. I also have a Commander ll on the back. I put it on around 15,000 miles and it’s still looking great.

    I had the tire installed at 15,074 miles. I replaced it at 35,1106. At that point I was told I could have been able to get a least another 1 to 2 thousand more miles out of it. The key is to make sure you check your air at least every other week. I will definitely continue to purchase this tire. The tire is on display at Lawrence’s motorcycle in Coeur D Alene ID.

    Hello fellow riders. The bike is a heavy touring model with a big bore kit and cams. I have driven this bike for the past 60,000 miles while using several brands of rubber. Most often I ride two up and aggressively on roads like the Tail of the Dragon. The bike is ridden daily, rain or shine until it snows. Many times my tires were still Maine State inspectable but I replaced them for better performance. This was my first time using Michelin tires on a motorcycle that I owned. The tires mounted and balanced easily in my shop. On my first ride with my girl we rode to Ira Mountain and Quill Hill, both of which have fairly steep gravel access roads. The return trip was route 16 through Rangeley Maine with some nice broad curves. After the ride I was sold on the Michelin tires. I love the way my bike handles. It feels responsive and secure at slow and high speeds. The ride is smooth and without vibration. While I do not have enough mileage on the tires to speak of their longevity I will say that I routinely inspect them and they are wearing evenly. There are no signs of cupping which is usually a red flag of evil developing. I will absolutely recommend these tires to customers that come in to my bike shop.
 Thanks Michelin

    I purchased these tires after reading reviews saying riders were getting 25k out of them. I thought that was a bit much but I just rolled over 22k on mine and they are good for maybe another season. I like the ride and handling characteristics.

    Michelin Commander II tires are the best tires I have ever rode on, excellent traction dry or wet, smooth ride and extended treadwear. Good job.
