Dunlop Elite 3 Bias-Ply Touring Rear Tire

The Elite 3 is the next generation long-distance tire with improved performance and longer wear.


  • E3 tread pattern provides class-leading, wet-pavement performance and is not affected by rain grooves, steel bridge decks or tar stripes
  • Better response and a solid feel through turns for confident cornering
  • New profile modeled after the shape of modern radial construction tires 
  • The high-mileage E3 tires suit a wide range of large-displacement touring motorcycles as well as a majority of the most popular cruiser bikes available
  • H-rated for speeds up to 130 mph
  • Dunlop’s MT Multi-Tread rear tire incorporates a long-wearing compound in the center of the tire tread and a lateral-grip compound on each shoulder (available only in 160/80B16 MT 80H)

Reliable and Dependable My 3rd E3, because I find it the best overall value and I like the handling for my 99 Victory Classic Cruiser. I researched all the available tires in the stock size, and found this has the highest load rating. Coupled with good experience for tread life, handling and traction, I am sticking with the Dunlop E3. December 23, 2013
You can trust these tires I have been using these on my Victory Hammer since 2005 and I have never had any issues. I am a full time rider in all weather conditions. I have all the confidence in the world in these tires. Expect 10K miiles from the rear and 16K from the front with all ranges of riding, agressive to cruising. You must exercise the full range of the rear tire to keep that crown or you will run a flat spot in the middle. So go ahead, keep those turns fast and on the peg feelers with confidence.

Great balance of mileage and performance This is my 5th consecutive set of Dunlop Elite 3's on my HD Ultra Classic in the last 4 years. I ride daily as well as tour and have put 76k miles in all kinds of weather and riding conditions on Elite 3's in that time. They provide the best balance of performance and mileage I've found.

Dunlop Elite 3 Front Tire This tire performs and wears well. I decided to go with this tire after riding 16,000 miles in all conditions in the Northeast from blistering hot riding to cold and rainy conditions. September 10, 2013
Take it from THIS biker chick!!! I have ridden the HECK out of allll kinds of tires..metzlers for years, and everything you can imagine..mostly on crotch rockets. I transitioned after 16 yrs to riding a cruiser in 2010. I bought a 2007 VStar 1300 custom and run these tires. FREAKIN awesome in traction, tire life, even in the stupid wet constant unpredictable rainy weather of Alabama (God help me..Im from L.A....how did I end up HERE?!) I put these through the ringer throwing that big heavy bike around like a sport bike on this big fat tire..BOTH of them handle awesome on gravel, wet, highway, street. Will never ride anything else on this bike and when I replace this one with another..Ill be looking for THESE tires..worth EVERY PENNY!! September 6, 2013
Love it! Going from a factory 210 metzler to the Dunlop 240, the ride and cornering are night and day better than I could have imagined. August 19, 2013
Great tire from Dunlop Have had the choice in the past to buy cheaper tires and just can't trust them like I can these Elite 3's. For an even balance between grip & tread life, this tire can't be beat. I've ran it through the Tail of the Dragon in NC scraping exhausts & floorboards all the way to the Black Hills of SD where I ran them very hard. From high speed sweeping turns to sharp switchbacks, they perform and perform well. Going to be hard to steer me away from them. June 25, 2013
Happy with tire got 13,000 miles on first rear tire. Front looks I have a little less than half life left. Tracts good. No complaints here. Have had no problems in rain. April 10, 2013

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
joe k: price and what i need. Apr 5, 2014
Joe R: You beat JP Cycles by 2.00 and Motorcycle superstore by 12. I like to do buisness with those that give me the product I want at the best price, even if the competition has a price match policy. I currently have this tire on, but it's worn. Jan 6, 2014
A shopper asked: I have a 2013 Victory Hard Ball. The OEM tire is a Dunlop E3 180/60R16 M/C 80H. While looking for this tire all I find is the 180/60R16 MT 80H. Is MT the same as MC? another web site says the 180/60R16 MT 80H is NOT the correct tire for my bike?? Both are multi compound tires, I'm just curious if there was a name change, but its still the same tire. Apr 6, 2014

A shopper asked: whats the difference between the bias and radial rear tire May 2, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The internal construction is the main difference between the two tires, as the bias ply tire features ply cord (generally made of nylon or polyester) that runs at a 45 degree angle from the tire's bead. These ply cords overlap in a criss-cross pattern, most of the time with four plies total.

The cord inside radial tires is positioned 90 degrees from the bead, which allows the tire to conform to the road much better. Most of the time, radial tires also have a steel belt that runs beneath the tread to help strengthen the tire.

Please keep in mind that you should never mix bias and radial tires. Consult your local dealer or give us a call if you have any further questions.

A shopper asked: Has anyone expressed this concern, and has Dunlap been notified about this problem? My bike sounds like a semi with low air pressure whine. I hate it and can you recommend a replacement? This is the only tire that I have had on my wing that I have had to use ear plugs with. Aug 25, 2012
