Michelin Commander 2 Front Tires

Peformance Features:

  • Unrivaled tire life; Michelin tests with a Harley-Davidson® Electra Glide® Classic prove a 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 tire’s 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 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
  • Improved 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:  140/75R17 size is a radial tire.

Please Note:  130/90/B16 is not suitable for fitment to rear wheels.

good product, great service. Very quick delivery, and the ride and handling is terrific. No nibbling, thank you. Recommended you to a friend, the tire he ordered was placed on back order. Needing a tire, you worked with him and made him a great deal on a lesser tire and shipped overnight at no costs to him. For him, I say thank you guys and gals so very very much. So far, a great company to deal with. July 11, 2015
Worth it. Got this tire in a 90/90-21 for the front of a wide glide, ride is smooth, didn't take much weight to balance, paint lines are still greasy when wet, overall I like it, unless there is something better when it's time to replace again, I'll get the same. June 25, 2015
Another winner from Michelin I purchased a set of these for my Goldwing and I don't see me changing to a different tire for a long time. On the same bike I have ridden Dunlop, Metzler and Bridgestone; not any more! These Michelins blow them away on all accounts. I have over 15,000 miles on the rear and it looks good for at least another 6,000. I got paranoid and changed the front too soon, my mistake but it won't happen again. June 25, 2015
Great features, good ride, only 500 miles on the tire so can't yet rate tread wear. If this tire gives the miles everyone states they are getting, it will be by far the best motorcycle rear tire I have had on a motorcycle in the past 25 years! July 27, 2015
This is a great tire and holds up well. I enjoy the ride balance and the characteristic feature of the tire. From how smooth it is on a ride to the curves on the road. I can tell what is going on with the road. July 12, 2015
Excellent All Around Tire I have both the front and rear on my bike and they haven't once left me regretting buying them. I have about 3000 miles on them and they are showing little to no wear. I recently took an 800 mile trip through wet, dry, straights, and twisties and they performed flawlessly. I have recommended them to all of my fellow cruiser/dresser riders. 10/10 will buy again... hopefully after the touted 20-25k tread life. June 29, 2015

Joseph R: Very satisfied withe the product and wanted to purchase the same tires again, price is fantastic. Thank you Jul 17, 2015
Steve N: These tires work great on the Harley Davidson Fatboy. This was my 2nd set but even it could not stop my crash the day after I had it mounted. It was the combination of new blacktop, new tire, and my riding too fast (stupidity). Jul 6, 2015

Ron R: Michelin has been true to getting close to the 25k miles claimed on their website. I generally ride 8k+ miles a year, so I was able to get 16k miles out of the tires. This tire handles various road conditions very well. I am able to ride with confidence on wet, dry, or gravel on the road. Mar 12, 2015

Richard H: I have a Stratoliner Deluxe and I put a 200 series Commander II on the back. No problems with it so I now am replacing the front with this one. Jan 15, 2015
John R: I replaced the stock tires on my 2010 Fat Boy, 2009 Sportster XL, and 2008 Ultra Classic with the Commander II. I LOVE these tires. 1.5-2 times the life of stock tires. Comfortable ride. Feels more aggressive in the curves. More confidence in wet riding conditions. They feel slightly stiffer at slow speed turning or turning while sitting still, but well worth the trade off in my opinion. Jan 2, 2015

Anthony B: Looking for a higher performance and better all-weather tire for my Harley. So far I have put 5,000 miles on them and I can't be happier.

Danny S: I really like the tire I bought for the rear, I have a 2007 Kawasaki vulcan 900 and it really tracks good and you do not feel the tar strips in the road.

Scott C: I am prety sure th -19 is the wheel size as is the -21 I would NOT recomend for any person to use a tire diameter larger than the wheel diameter. In this sinereo in america you would have a difference of two inches. Your tire install technician should not concider performing this task. The commander II is a Great tire choice though.

handle corners great. I've got over ten thousand miles on them and I believe I can get another ten . Hope this helps, great tires

A shopper asked: I am replacing tires on my 2010 H.D Heritage Classic. FLSTC I want to replace the Dunlop with Michelin Commander 2. The rear tire is on the fit guide 150/80/16 71H. But the front tire does not have one listed for this bike with the exact specs.
Currently I have been running Dunlop 402 (MT 90/16 72H) my question is which Michelin Commander tire is right for the front?
The last # (72H) is different in the guide for Michelin. I'm not really sure what the 72H means.
I really want these tires but I don't want to screw up.

Mason M: I used matched set and love them the size seem to match my old dunlaps but the front tire tread seemed backward to the direction shown for mounting them forward. Never the less I mounted the direction it said and hadn't had a problem with them on dry or wet roads. My bike Virgo 1100. I can't remember the sizes off the top of my head. Hope this helps!

Paul C: I have no idea. When I purchased mine, there was an exact match for what I had on the bike. I think you'll have to ask a representative from Michelin. All I can tell you is that I really like the tires. (Sorry I can't be more help.) Jun 26, 2015

A shopper asked: I like what the Michelin Commander II promises and want a set except that they only make a size to fit the rear of my 03 Vulcan Nomad. What would be a good front match for this tire? Apr 5, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Michael D: I ride a Yamaha Roadliner and was told not to mix brands of tires. To get the Michelin Commander II tires on my bike I had to go to a 200 radial tire while using a 130-70-18 bias ply Michelin Commander II front tire. 6,000 miles later the combination works well. If you can get a Michelin Commander II in other than and OEM size to fit your Nomad, that would likely work well.

P.S. The Michelins are far superior to the original Dunlops and replacement Bridgestones I had on the bike.

RevZilla: Currently, Michelin do not offer the Commander II tire in a 120/80-17 fitment only a 120/90 B17 and Michelin do not recommend as a replacement for 120/80. We hope this helps you with your decision. Jul 13, 2012
