Michelin Commander 2 Rear Tires Peformance Features Unrivaled tire life Michelin tests with a Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Classic prove a rear Michelin Commander II is capable of covering up to 40,000 kilometers (Almost 25,000 miles). The Michelin Commander II creates a new standard in regards to durability, without making compromises in wet weather grip, maneuverability or stability Silica Rain Technology integrates silica into the compound of the tire tread in order to prevent all forms of uneven wear The exclusive architecture of the Michelin Commander II brings both maneuverability and stability. The tires rigid, high-density carcass improves maneuverability, while the aramid fiber crown ply of the rear tire enhances resistance and lightness for impeccable stability, even at high speeds Numerous longitudinal grooves of the new tire's tread pattern optimize water dispersal for outstanding wet weather grip Independent tests show that the Michelin Commander II rear tire lasts almost twice as long its main competitors, the Metzeler ME 880 and the Dunlop D407/408. Technological Features Amplified Density Technology A highly dense, more-rigid tire casing, which helps deliver excellent feedback and handling Aramid tread plies on the rear tire resist centrifugal growth, reduce weight and provide excellent stability All-new rubber compounds for remarkable wet grip, without compromising durability Square bead wires improve casing rigidity, handling and ease of installation Styling Features Unique tread pattern for head-turning looks Premium sidewall treatment complements cruiser styling Please Note Check your manufacturer's specifications for required load ratings when replacing OE Tires. Please Note 200/55R17 tire is a radial tire.

I recently ran approx 300 miles on these. I noticed a much smoother ride and no wobble on road cracks. Turns felt a bit squirrely at first, not sure if they still needed a bit of breaking in. I live in No. NM and ride thru the mtn areas very often. Only found a few wet areas and they seemed to hold okay, Was still a bit nervous from my first turns. I hope they hoId as well in snowy spots. I definitely recommend buying these tires. As per my research and other reviews, I too am expecting a much longer tire life that the usual 8k miles from the overpriced HD Dunlaps I used to buy. My ratings are low due to the short time I've had them. I'll re- enter later after more use. For now, I'm very satisfied with my purchase. About time someone cared about us bikers. Good show Michelin and Thank you Revzilla for the best prices and fastest service on the web.
Yes, I recommend this product.
