Dunlop Elite 3 Bias Ply Touring Rear Tire 4.7 5 22 22
WTF?? I come to the webpage to read various reviews of Dunlop Elite 3 Bias Ply Touring Rear Tire. And what do all the reviews discuss? Radial tires! If I wanted to read about radials, I would have gone to the radial tire reviews. Are those who submit comments illiterate? FWIW, Dunlop factory reps claim the GL1800 *must* use the Elite 3 radials and the GL1500 *must* use Elite 3 Bias Ply tires. They have different profiles; they are not interchangeable, and they should never be mixed. I am considering changing brands and want to read reviews before deciding what I will purchase.

Fantastic tire This tire is exactly what other reviewers describe. Once I mounted it the improvement in handling and grip were immediately noticeable. Most impressive however is the great performance in the wet. I can't speak to tread life yet as I've only put about 1,000 miles on it but other than that I am very pleased with this purchase. October 8, 2015
Very dependable tire. Used this product previously & very satisfied with the overall performance. Have not mounted this tire yet. Old tire still has some life to it. June 8, 2015
Best motorcycle tire for safety & durability. Have used these tires previously. Provides a great ride and has excellent traction & wears well. Would not consider using any other product. June 8, 2015
wow...great new tire! I ordered the front and back tires and it seemed like I got them the next day! The new MT (Multi tread) is outstanding. I feel like I can lean my Victory Vision further then ever! Thanks Revzilla for the speedy delivery! December 23, 2014
Perfect for my Victory Vision Tour Premium Great tire with plenty of grip and staying power.. Seems to wear well and anticipate around 8k on this tire from what I got previously...and these are NOT riden gently. The groups I ride with are all on sport tourers and ride aggressive, these tires allow me to at least keep them in sight...haha...highly recommended. November 3, 2014
Great tire. Last longer than any other tire ive tried. Great traction. June 2, 2014
Good tire, worth 20K miles on GL1800 This tire does not cup and will generally run 20,000 mile son the front of my GL1800. Almost all these miles are interstates. June 16, 2014

dan d: need Sep 18, 2015
David S: My third set of E-3's and like how they handle and can't beat their price !! Mar 30, 2015
Ken C: Tire works real well on my '06 Harley FLHTP. Better handling than the stock Dunlop, wears better, too. Over 18K miles on the last one. Jan 4, 2015
W A: I ride a sport-tourer, with much emphasis on the tourer. I wanted a tile that would give me high mileage without sacrificing too much in traction or handling. A couple other brands out there marketed as touring tires have got poor reputations for wet traction. So far the Dunlop has delivered everyting I hoped for. May 9, 2014
terry 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
