Information and Details about the Michelin Commander 2 Tires - Rear
made by Michelin
Michelin Commander 2 launches a new motorcycle tire which delivers unrivaled tire life. Independent tests carried out in the United States using a Harley-Davidson® Electra Glide® Classic prove it: a rear MICHELIN Commander II is capable of covering up to 40,000 kilometers*. That’s nearly twice the distance covered by its direct competitors, while the longevity of the front tire is even greater. The MICHELIN Commander II creates a new standard with regard to durability, yet without making any compromises in terms of wet weather grip, maneuverability or stability. This performance balance provides yet another eloquent illustration of Michelin’s research and development philosophy: no performance gain to be achieved on one front to the detriment of another.

In response to the major problem faced by custom motorcycle riders – tire life, notably at the rear, the engineers at the Michelin Technology Center at Ladoux, France, have developed a new rubber compound. The carcass of this new radial tire is associated with Silica Rain Technology (SRT) which integrates silica into the compound of the tire tread, while the MICHELIN Commander II's tread pattern has been designed to prevent all forms of uneven wear.

The exclusive architecture of the MICHELIN Commander II brings both maneuverability and stability. The tire’s more rigid, high-density carcass improves maneuverability, while the aramid fiber crown ply of the rear tire enhances resistance and lightness for impeccable stability, even at high speeds.

Last but not least, the numerous longitudinal grooves of the new tire's tread pattern optimize water dispersal for outstanding wet weather grip.

A new standard in cruiser tire longevity
  • Independent tests* show that the Michelin® Commander® II rear tire lasts almost twice as long its main competitors, the Metzeler ME 880 and the Dunlop D407/408

    Innovative technology
  • Commander II 90-thread ply is 25% more dense than conventional plies
  • Amplified Density Technology: A highly dense, more-rigid tire casing, which helps deliver excellent feedback and handling
  • Aramid tread plies on the rear tire resist centrifugal growth, reduce weight and provide excellent stability
  • All-new rubber compounds for remarkable wet grip, without compromising durability
  • >Square bead wires improve casing rigidity, handling and ease of installation

    A groundbreaking new look
  • Unique tread pattern for head-turning looks
  • Premium sidewall treatment complements cruiser styling

    michelin commander - Shep   GA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: long lasting, great grip
    Cons: I'll let you know when I find one

    This is my second michelin commander tire, took the last one off after 15K miles...probably still has a few more thousand miles on it. runs smooth and quiet.

    Pros: Kind of bike the tires are on
    Cons: [None]

    When You enter the info on tires.What kind of bike it is on would really help.example a Harley Dyna tire is totally different than a Harley Bagger.Thanks

    Great so far - Mbike   ME Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Reasonable price, readily available
    Cons: None so far

    This tire arrived promptly from Competition Accessories. It was easy to mount on the rear of my StreetGlide by myself with basic tools. The tire keeps its shape and was quickly inflated onto the bead on the first try. It balanced with only 38 of an ounce weight. After 2000 miles it appears to be wearing well. It has handled well, wet or dry. This is my first tire without a center groove so I was a bit apprehensive. So far it is a great tire. I have already purchased another as I am a high mileage rider.

    Michelin Commander II Tires - Timothy Stricker   MI Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Looks-Ride- Quality-Price-Fast Shipping
    Cons: N.A.

    I bought a set of Michelin Commander II Tires for my 05 Fatboy with a 21 front Tire & a 16-180 size rear tire. They ride great and found the best price with Competition Accessories. Buy with confidence. Very Fast Shipping-I received tires in less than a week.

    Michelin Commander 2 - Bob   TX Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Excellent traction, smoother cornering at high speeds
    Cons: none so far

    Tire mounted easily and took very little weight to balance. Rides very smooth on the unmaintained roads around here. Better traction than i have brakes.

    Excellent tire - JD400   NC Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great handling, good looks
    Cons: None

    Replaced a set of worn Metzler 880s on my Yamaha VStar 1100, did the install myself. The Michelins are noticeably lighter in weight than the Metzlers, but are well constructed. Handling is excellent, tires have great grip and inspire confidence. I feel they are more responsive than the Metzlers on the open road, but I have to work harder to balance the bike at slow speeds. Overall, I'm happy and will be more so if these live up to their promised mileage.

    Michelin Commander II Motorcycle Tires - clwcomp   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: High mileage, great handling,
    Cons: [None]

    Just ordered my second set of Michelin Commander II's. Have tried several brands of tires over the years and average 5000 - 8000 miles on a rear tire. Currently have 18000 miles on Commander II rear tire. Estimate in 4000 miles I will still have 14 of original tread left. Pretty awesome Not even close on the front tire yet. Estimating I will get close to 40000 miles on it. Have driven cross country on interstate and locally on chip and seal, asphalt, concrete, gravel and dirt in all kinds of weather. Tires handle well and shed water very well. Only caveat has been on grooved pavement but I still haven't found a tire that handles that well.

    Great Handling Tire - Harley Big Boy   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Excellent handling and traction, great ride, looks good, awesome price,
    Cons: NONE

    I installed this awesome tire in May, 2012 just before participating in Rolling Thunder and have already put over 5,000 miles on this tire since May. VERY pleased - will order another complete set when these need replacing.. Looking forward to seeing just how many miles this tire will get and if Michelin's milage claims are true. Have been caught in heavy rain and these tires perform excellent. Highly recommend.

    Major difference - Roadstar1700   AR Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Awesome traction, reasonable price, Good looks
    Cons: none

    I don't have many miles on these tires yet, my roadstar came factory with dunlops. Needless to say I will never run them again. I bought front and back Michelin Commander 2's and what a difference. I will have to change the way I ride because of the inceased traction these tires produce compared to the dunlops. Makes the bike feel glued to the road. I highly recommend them.

    Nice - ldclsu   LA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: real nice look and handles great. Dont have many miles so dont know about ware yet
    Cons: none

    like them so far but havent used much

    Installed these tires on my 2011 Super Glide Custom to replace the stock Michelin Scorcher 31's. Compared to those tires the Commander 2's are better on irregular surfaces such as rain grooves with no pulling or wandering from the front wheel.The tires exhibit neutral handling characteristics same as the 31's did which makes for precise and easy cornering. Traction seems comparable to the stock tires and the load ratings front and rear are the same.I was pleased to get 11,000 miles out of the Scorchers and the Commander 2's should break that mark according to their claims. The rear tire has deeper tread than the Scorchers and the tread and sidewall designs look good and give the bike a sporty, aggressive appearance.Haven't had a chance to try these tires in the rain yet, but have always been pleased with Michelin products. So far I am very happy with the Commander 2's.

    Definitely a big step up from the original commander tires. Ordered these from COMPACC and had them mounted two weeks ago. I have put on nearly a thousand miles going down to Vegas and around the South rim of the Grand Canyon. All I can say is wow. Definitely a solid great handling tire. Priced along the same lines as my factory 402's but in my opinion a much better tire. If the 20, 000 mileage rating is everything Michelin says it is they definitely have a winner.

    5 star right now just for the great shipping,excellent customer service and awesome price..These tires have great tread depth,and a really nice looking roll in ,very aggressive tread. I will be revisiting this review when the tires are mounted and get some mileage on them..Looking forward to testing the claim of 25 thousand from a rear tire.. AW1.

    Michelin Commander 2 Tire Review - MarkH   UT Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: handling & longevity
    Cons: no balancing mark - took 2&34 oz to balance

    This the second Commander 2 on the rear & first on the front. Both handling and longevity are improved over the oem tire. Replaced the rear Commander 2 at 13000 miles with 2-32nds tread left. Was getting 7000 miles with oem tire. Turn in, traction and overall handling is improved over oem tire. This tire took more weight to balance than the previous Commander 2 rear or the front. A balancing mark would be helpful. The Michelin Commander 2 is a definite improvement over the oem tire.

    Michelin commander 2's - Mike   WI Recommended by Reviewer: No
    Pros: none
    Cons: noisey..feels like card in spoke at low speed, very bad handle bar and foot peg buzz

    Have about 1200 miles on front and rear michelin commander 2's..am about 1200 miles into a 3 week 4000 mile trip and considering getting them off, the worse tire I have ever used....at the end of the day my hands are numb and tingly .. I am fatigued and my ears ring. I have done 1300 To 1400 mile days in the past and never felt like I do now after 500 miles..... going to be a long three weeks, 4000 miles
