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.

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.

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.

Good tire, but expensive.
I have used Elite 3's for years. Very good tire, although I did spin out in the rain a few months ago on them. Overall good value, but very expensive. This one tire cost almost as much as 4 tires on my car. That's why I bought it at RevZilla - best price and best service on the web!

Happy with tire

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.

My third set of E-3's and like how they handle and can't beat their price !!
David S on Mar 30, 2015
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.
Ken C on Jan 4, 2015
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.

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.

my bke as has a mu 185 tire on now wat size tire in dunlope e 3 do I get ?
A shopper on Jun 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Mu 90b16 or140/90/16
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.
A shopper on Apr 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Go to the Dunlap web site to see if you can find MT / MC rating defination
whats the difference between the bias and radial rear tire
A shopper on May 2, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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.
I would like to know I am buying from Americans. Is RevZilla an American company?
A shopper on Sep 26, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Yes sir, we were founded, and are still based, in Philadelphia, PA, the birthplace of our nation. Take a gander at our 'About Us' page and you'll get the whole story.

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.
A shopper on Aug 25, 2012
BEST ANSWER: I have a set of Elite 3's on my HD Bagger and never experienced any road noise.
