Michelin Pilot Power Tires You don't have to be world champion to get your hands on Michelin racing tire technology. Pilot Power tires use a rubber mix that was originally developed for MotoGP racing, and a tread pattern that covers less than 12 of the tire's surface. The result is a maximum lean angle of 50.6 degrees on dry pavement and 41.9 degrees in the wet, achieved with a stock sportbike. MotoGPderived rubber compound requires minimal warmup time The softest rubber mix in its class for remarkable grip, yet maintains tire performance even at advanced stages of wear Unprecedented lean angles 50.6 degrees in the dry, 41.9 degrees in the wet Rubber mix remains soft even at lower temperatures providing excellent grip from the start of your ride Grooved area that's less than 12 of the tread pattern for phenomenal cornering adhesion These are the best street tires I've ever ridden in my life.

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.
will the michelin commander II (rear) be compatible with a bridgestone exedra (front) tire? Is the commander II available in 170/60ZR17 (72H)?
Not sure if the commander ll is available in that specific size but I will advise you to never mix and match tires. If you like Michelin you should check out the Pilot Power series, I am a proud owner of them and have been for the past 3 sets...
