Tire failure with less than 8000 miles. Warranty is a joke.

Loved the tires while they were usable. Great grip and handled amazing on my cruzer. However, with less than 8000 miles on the tires and less than 4 years into their so called 6 year warranty, the tire started coming apart on me on a ride. Have never gone faster than 75 on the tires, bike was garage kept, but they blame the desalination on improper use or storage. In other words, they blame it on something that they nor I can prove in order to not honor their warranty or stand behind their product. Won't be going back with their tires.

Great Tires

Best Tires I have Rode on to date. Full disclosure, I work for Michelin. The Commander 2,s I purchased a couple years prior to employment. Traction in wet/dry is superb. we rode countless hours in storms on road trips in 2020-2021 and no issues were had. Changed them out at just over 22,000mi due to cupping, That was my fault, I was not one to check my pressure very often. Went with Metzelers after that due to Covid/Backorder issues. Those were sketchy to say thye least in the rain. But I wore them out and am back on Commander 3,s now. Hoping they hold up as well as the 2,s.

No other tire goes on my sleds! None!

First discovered these in 2010 while looking for something that will last longer than 8000 miles. A fixed income disability check can't afford to buy tires every 6 months...and that's with me putting them on myself! Found these Commander II's and read some fine reviews about them for longevity and decided to 'splurge' and got some for my '09 Super Glide. Those tires went 25,000 miles on the front and 15,000 on the rear, pretty much *twice* what the Dunlops were giving me! I've been using these since. I put 87,000 miles on that '09 FXD in 4 years and was easily able to afford these tires because of their longevity. Not just the longevity I found out too, since the bike is the only transportation I own, I have to often ride in bad weather conditions during all times of the year. My next bike was a '98 Super Glide and yep, the tires from the '09 went on the '98, because they're that good. Unfortunately a cager t-boned me and now I have a wrecked bike with two brand new tires I can't use because I replaced that '98 FXD with a '97 Heritage Softtail Classic, so I can't use the same sizes of tires. Anyway, I got the FLSTC and first thing I did was take the old tires off and put these Commander II's on and the bike rides like a dream compared to the Dunlops. They don't track in cracks on the road or metal bridges, they don't make me sweat a load during the summer when taking turns on fast roads that have lots of tar snakes, and rain doesn't even phase them a bit.

Vibrating awaits

Bought new front tire on 14 street glide, stuck in mountains of Tennessee and had to get an emergency replacement and as soon as the put this tire on I noticed vibration at certain speeds. Trash. And I had to pay $485 for it. It got me home,

Most excellent

You can't argue with 40,000 km travelled most of those 2up loaded up touring.
