Mac’s Story

Tire Rating: 4 Stars
Tires: Commander II
Motorcycle: 2012 Harley Davidson
Annual Mileage: 5,000-10,000
Location: McCormick, South Carolina

Immediately after having these tires installed, the first thing that struck me, (other than a beetle in the forehead), was the cornering of the Commander II. I travel a lot of “twistie-turnies”, and the handling of the Michelin’s is noticeably better than the stock Dunlop tires. I also had the opportunity to take a couple of 800+ mile trips. The Commander II tires felt slightly “harder” than the Dunlops, but in now way detracted from the riding experience. More importantly, after running these tires for a few months and a couple of thousand miles, they still look new. For real, there is almost no noticeable wear. I’m anxious to take these tires to Daytona, (because it always rains on me going to Daytona), and I would like to see what they can do in the wet. This is why I gave the 4 star rating instead of 5 – haven’t tested in the rain – YET!
