Dunlop Elite 3 Bias Touring Rear Tire
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.

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.

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!!

Going from a factory 210 metzler to the Dunlop 240, the ride and cornering are night and day better than I could have imagined.

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.

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.
