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 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 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 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.

Excellent Tires!
Feels like a brand new bike, suddenly I can lean around corners even with the 240 tires in the rear on my HD Night Rod. I did a great deal of research but these won out cause they should last 3-4 times as long as the other performance tires and still provide excellent grip!

So far so good if it lasts like the rear it'll be great.
I purchased this tire, and took it to a dealer to install. When I arrived he asked me why I didn't just put the front on when I had the rear installed. I asked what he meant by that, and he responded that the rear tire was new as well why not do them at the same time. To this I replied that the rear tire had 8,000 miles on it. This tire wears extremely well. The handling so far has been great, and wet traction seems very good as well. I would recommend this tire to any one who puts allot of miles on their bike. All in all a great tire at any price.

Great overall tire
This tire has never let me down, overall one of the best, stiffest, grippiest tire ive ever used. I love to ride hard through the twisties and this tire puts up with everything ive thrown at it with absolute confidence. 10/10 will buy again (when they actually wear out that is...)

Probably the best set of tires I've ever bought. Handling and ride quality much improved over the stock tires. Already have had a few long runs and am glad I made the purchase.

Excellent traction and tread wear!
I bought this for my 2015 Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Vaquero and I am happy with the results so far! Far better than the stock Bridgestones that came in the bike from the factory! Don't hesitate, just buy it!

Great product, great service
I think this tire was a great purchase. It grips well, and I feel like the price is actually a fantastic deal. I've only been riding on it for a couple of weeks, so I can't say anything about tread life yet. Also, I live in a desert climate, so little to no issues with wet traction. And as always, excellent customer service and shipping from the team at Revzilla!

Much better than stock tires
Just went on a 1500 miles road trip
couldn't be any happier. Track wells, road transitions didn't effect the tires, great in wet weather. I can push the bike a little harder through the turns with all more confidence than the stock tires

Excellent Tire
I am using this on both front and rear tire and have 15,000+ miles on them with my big touring bike. (2011 HD Ultra Limited) Still have good tread. If you need grip I have been happy and still scrap the floorboards in corners.

I use Michelins on my other vehicles and the traction/longevity of this tire is best in my experience. (67,000+ miles on my 2012 SG) I've used/tried other different brands, Michelin is the best! IMHO...

Kevin M on Apr 17, 2017
Bought a Michelin Commander II rear tire three years ago. Awesome tire, tons of tread left even after a handful of smoke shows. Time to ditch the Dunlop and have the same quality up front!

This is the best tire I've ever seen. I made a trip from the Gulf Coast to Maine last summer and I ride year round. The tire looks new still. I would have changed the Dunlops at least once or twice by now. I highly recommend it.

I have these tires on two of my bikes. A Fatboy and a PC800. The tires last and last and the wet weather traction is superb. If they made these in sizes for all of my bikes (42), they would be on every one.

I bought these tires previously and got 33,000 miles out of them. that is almost 3 times as many miles as i have gotten out of any of the competitors tires. I will continue to buy Michelin tires as long as they make them.

best tires around for me and my bike.
eric d on Feb 22, 2017
This is my 3th set of Commander II tires with 15k miles logged on them in all kinds of Colorado weather and they show little wear. I believe that I will get at least 20-25K on these excellent tires. Best tires I have ever purchased and will only put these on my 2014 Road King.

is this tire for tube type or tubless application?
A shopper on Mar 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Tubeless
What is the differance between the front and rear tire. Will a front tire work on the rear.? Size is the same.
A shopper on Mar 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No it will not.
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.
A shopper on Jun 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 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!
Hello. I have a Harley Street Glide Special. I'm looking for a replacement back tire for the Dunlop D407T 180/65 R16. I'm would like to get the Michelin Commander II. I have two questions. One, I know it would not be ideal to have the back tire different from the front tire, but would it be acceptable? Two, the front tire is a Dunlop D407T 130/60/ R19 will the Michelin Commander II 130/70 18 work? Other sites' tire selector are saying that is the acceptabel replacement?
A shopper on Sep 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes buy them. you woo not be sorry
I have a 2011 Harley Davidson Rocker C, the front tire is a Dunlap 90/90 - 19 MC 52H. Will the Michelin commander ll 90/90 - 21 54H work?
A shopper on Feb 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The commander is a great tyre. as far as fit use a comparison chart
will they fit a 2001 suzuki vs 800? front 100/90-19 C57 H and rear 140/90-15M/C70H
A S on Sep 30, 2013
BEST ANSWER: That I'm not sure of. They are more of a cruiser tire than a sport tire.
Can I put a tube in this tire?
A C on Feb 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Any conventional tire can be used for intertube, todays tire depends on the rim to make it tubeless. Don't forget the rim strip to protect the tube.
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?
A shopper on Apr 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Hey guys, I'm trying to find a 120/80-17 tubeless Commander II. I've only found the 120/90. Do they make it in the 80? I've looked at other sites and can't find it. Thanks for your help!
A shopper on Mar 16, 2012
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Can you run an Avon Cobra 130 70 r18 on the front with the Commander 2 240 40 r18 on the rear. Tread pattern look very similar?
William S on Feb 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes
