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 have had this rear tire on my Harley Screamin Eagle Ultra for 10 months now and 21,000 miles. I normally get 15,000 out of a Dunlop. But this is a very slippery tire in the rain. It does well on dry roads. In the mountains it is very loud on long hard leans. So loud that at one point I was next to a cage and thought there were issues with the cage before I realized it was my back tire humming. The tire is made Thailand - Boo. It does have long mileage as boasted, and now the price is cheaper than the competitors. I probably will pay the extra money and go with another Dunlop because I ride in rain and don't trust this tire on wet roads. I wish it would hurry up and wear out. I think it still has a good 3000 miles left on it or so.
No, I do not recommend this product.
