Dunlop Elite 3 Bias-Ply Touring Rear Tire

The Elite 3 is the next generation long-distance tire with improved performance and longer wear.

Features:

  • E3 tread pattern provides class-leading, wet-pavement performance and is not affected by rain grooves, steel bridge decks or tar stripes
  • Better response and a solid feel through turns for confident cornering
  • New profile modeled after the shape of modern radial construction tires 
  • The high-mileage E3 tires suit a wide range of large-displacement touring motorcycles as well as a majority of the most popular cruiser bikes available
  • H-rated for speeds up to 130 mph
  • Dunlop’s MT Multi-Tread rear tire incorporates a long-wearing compound in the center of the tire tread and a lateral-grip compound on each shoulder (available only in 160/80B16 MT 80H)

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
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.

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.
