The best option for 2009 up HD Touring bikes
I've been using the American Elite tires as replacements for the stock D407/D408 that came stock on my '09 Ultra and I love them. I get about 22,000 out of the fronts and 15k from the rears. 15,000 is about an average for the rear depending on the type of riding I'm doing and how hot it is or the type of roads I'm riding. I can get anywhere from 12,000 to as much as 18 or 19 thousand miles on a rear tire. The tread pattern is a bit different than the OEM tires though they're the same compound so you'd think they should wear the same but they don't, the American Elites wear a lot better than the OEM tires. Also, although Harley recommends 40 psi for the rear, the American Elite has a little higher max pressure and I've found a significant difference running the rear at 41psi. Much more even wear and longer lasting. My bike has almost 77,000 miles and I've been using these since about 30,000.

$100 LESS then the Dealer
I’ve run this tire on the rear of my FLHTCU properly inflated to 40 PSI, and at 7000 miles I have noticeable cupping and the bike is starting to “sing” when I lean into a turn. Tread life seems very good as I have 8/32” left of the original 11/32” so I am estimating 18,000 miles if I can stand the cupping that long. The OEM Dunlops did the same thing. Revzilla shipping and customer service was awesome and I will buy from them again, but may try a different tire based on reviews at next change point, As I ride about 12-14000 miles a year it won’t be long.

On my second set of these!
I've had these before, and I was so impressed, had to get them again. LOONNG wearing (twice as long as the OE tires), great grip in the curves, sure-footed on rain soaked roads, and they don't get squirrely on grooved pavement.

Switched from metzeler to these. They grip better, have less road noise, don't track grooves in the road and seem to be getting better milage! All around great tire! And fast shipping too!

A good grippy tire for your HD
So far, this has been a very good tire. While I haven't pushed it real hard, I've dragged the pegs through the twisties without issue. There's no center strip on these skins, so they won't track tarsnakes. I haven't been out on a wet road with them yet, but I suspect they'll do well there as well. Again, I haven't had them long, but so far, the American Elite tires feel like the real deal.

As good as I'd hoped for, so far
I have just over 4,000 miles on these tires since I put them on my 2004 Heritage, replacing a worn-out set of Dunlop Elite IIIs.

Tread wear is non-existent (maybe 1/32), and handling on dry pavement, heavy rain, and even some snow (!) is excellent.

The tires feel a little more lively in the first 5-10 degrees of lean-over, but that may be because they are new and round on the bottom instead of worn-out and flat like the ones I replaced.

If they hold up like it looks like they will, I'll definitely be grabbing another set when these wear out.

I haven't had the tired long enough to see how the wear life characteristics. Got caught in a rainstorm in the tire responded well and the tread design compliments the bike. I'm very happy with the purchase.

I ride a 2014 HD Ultra Limited. I bought these tires before because of the way they are made. They grip the road in all conditions and the life of the tires are exceptional. As of now I have over 14,000 miles on both the front and back and still have another 5000 - 7000 miles left on the tread. I run my front tire with about 40 lbs and the rear at about 44 lbs. I have the air shocks set between 40 - 50 lbs. These tires are far better than the OEM tires that come on the bike for half the price.
D L on Apr 10, 2017

So I replaced the rear 402 with the American Elite and I am very pleased with its performance. Now I need a front tire.

Do the Dunlop American Elite 2nd Generation Tires say Harley Davidson on the sidewall?
A shopper on Feb 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, These are the same tire, but can not say Harley as they are not sold by them.
Is anyone using on, or would anyone recommend this tire (set) For a 2008 Sportster 1200c?
A shopper on Mar 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I got them for my 883 and love them! The nice round shape of these does way better on corners.
Can these tires be used with tubes? My Road King has spoke wheels and therefore requires tubes to be used as well.
Ryan M on Apr 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I've installed these on my 2002 FLSTS.
can this tire be used on the rear wheels of a harley trike?
A shopper on Apr 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Good question! Need to make sure that there the right load rating for your application (bike). A lot of mistakes made by just looking at the speed rating and size. Dunlop has a great website for all the information you need on the tires application, air pressure;;;;;;;., and help you decide what type of Tire be best for your application. Good luck and ride safe.
07 Heritage what tire is better the Dunlop or the metzler ?
A S on Jul 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Difficult question to answer - some riders will give up a little handling for longer mileage, some riders don't care how often they have to change tires, they want the best possible handling. Car tires must carry a mileage rating and a dry and wet traction rating so you know what you're getting, bike tires it's a pig in a poke, although I don't know if I've ever seen a poke. Myself, I don't like the expense or trouble of replacing tires so I go for mileage, which Dunlop seems to do well at. Another tire might grip better in a foot peg scraping curve but if you're riding a cruiser this shouldn't be a high priority or you'd be on a Japanese or Italian sport bike.
Can I use Dunlop american elite tires on my 07 Harley flstc ? your video states to use the 402.
A shopper on Jul 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can. As long as the tire sizes match. I had a 402 as original equipment on my Fat Boy and switched to the Elite when it was time for a new tire. It's a great tire.
Trying to replace rear tire on 2012 Electra Glide Ultra FLHTCU Fire Fighter Edition our numbers read 180/65 B16 - your choices above offer 81H, 81HWWW, or 81HNW - which is correct for OEM? thanks
A shopper on Mar 31, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I didn't like the harder and less responsive ride from the Dunlop American Elites and was very happy to replace them with the Michelin Commander II. I have 7 sets of tires on my bike and got the most miles from the Elites but couldn't wait to replace them. I hope I get a good number of miles from the Commander II's - I love the ride these tires are giving me!
What does the "R" stand for in R18?
A shopper on Sep 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: On most tires the r stands for radial tire instead of bias ply tires.
the 2nd generation tire will it fit a 1995 fatboy ?
A shopper on Apr 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would think so just get the right size
Do not go bigger it might not fit
Great tire
Does your Elite 130-70B-18 and 18/0-65B-16 both have the HD emblem on the sidewall?
A shopper on Apr 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No. They say AMERICAN on the sidewall. They are the exact same tire you get from the dealer but cost a lot less money. If you want the HD emblem, You have to get the tires from an HD dealer. Also if you are going to use on a spoked rim, you also need to purchase a rim liner.
