Information and Details about the Michelin Commander 2 Tires - Rear
made by Michelin
Covers 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

    Commander II - JollyRoger   FL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: great ride and wet traction.
    Cons: [None]

    I have had one set of Commander II's and was completely pleased with all aspects of their performance.

    Commander 2 tires - Lippy   MA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: [None]
    Cons: [None]

    I just put on a set of Michelin Commander 2 tires on my 2007 VTX 1300 and what a difference from the stock Dunlop's...not even in the same comparison group. The ride is much improved and I can feel the contact patch much better. Improved handling and smoother cornering as well. An even better ride with a passenger with proper shock adjustment and tire pressure. I run the pressure about 5lbs higher than recommended for an even better ride and hopefully longer life.

    michelin rear tire - old fat man   OH Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: it feels goos on the road
    Cons: [None]

    the price was reasonable & it came quickly. I like the way it feels on the road.I'll have to put some miles on it& see but if it lasts as long as I've read I'll be happy. I saved 200.00 by ordering on line & mounting them myself .

    Mr.RoadKing - BowhuntR   SC Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great quality,Super performance,
    Cons: None

    You will notice right from the start when the rubber hits the road from the Michelin commander II they become one. The ride and handling are awesome. This is the second time I have purchased this tire from Competition Accessaries. I have over 18562 miles on the rear tire . For me there is no other tire for my bike. Great product, Great price, Great service.

    michelin tires - vikingjay   WA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: better traction smoother ride good looking
    Cons: none

    purchased a set ofmichelin commander 2 tires for my 2003 road king I had previously only run on dunlops the difference is night and day the performance and comfort of ride is exceptional.i have to drive over a steel grated bridge every day when I had dunlops on bike was always squirrelly and scary put on Michelins and I cant even tell that I have changed surfaces also better hadling on all other road conditions I feel much more confident in all road conditions hope that they last as long as they say 20 to 25 thousand miles when I was lucky to get 10000 out of dunlops talked my riding partner to buy a set as well and he loves them too

    Feeling Good - MannyM   CA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Feels great
    Cons: None

    Even though the size is not what the manufacture asks for, I had to try it out. If I can get half of the miles they are advertising, I'll be happy.

    the best - LES   NC Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Michelin
    Cons: na

    In my opinion I found the best item that I was looking for at the best price on the market. It doesn't hurt to have a good experience while doing it either.

    Evaluation - Roadstar 1700   PA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Excellent tire, and extremely fast shipping
    Cons: None

    Excellent tire, and extremely fast service from the seller Dealer who installed these tires commented what a high quality tire these are. He does not sell Michelin

    THE BEST TIRE - BEST TIRE FOR THE MONEY   AL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: smooth ride , dont track , excellent grip
    Cons: [None]

    i will not use nothing else on my ride

    big tire - T-bird rider   ID Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: ease of mounting, easy break in
    Cons: none noticed

    I have killed the z rated Metzler that came on the bike at only 4500 miles. I hope the Michelin will last longer. the price was 100 less than in town and fast shipping. 200mm rubber had me concerned but this tire mounted as easily as the old one came off. 2oz of micro beads and balance has not been an issue. Break in was easy 5 miles of dotted line weaving with increasing lean angle at 50 mph had the pegs scraping and I have not had any ill handling or wash out. At 400 miles I dont yet have an idea of tire life but if these Michelins wear decent I will definitly buy a full set when these are gone. Thanks to Competition Accessories

    Pros: [None]
    Cons: [None]

    great price and fast shipping

    So far so good - Paul T   NY Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Overall performance
    Cons: None so far

    Fed up with my second set of Metzler tires which both times gave me only 5,000 miles before I had to replace. I was a little hesitant to buy the Michelins because the stock rear tire, a Metzler 20050, didn't come in the Michelin Commander. But Michelin did make a 20055 tire, the 55 being a little higher than the 50 Metzler. So far I'm very happy with the Michelins. It seems to track better going straight down the road. The ride is very smooth. The grip on leaning into a turn is much better than the Michelin's. It is a better ride than the Metzler's. Now that being said will I get more than 5,000 miles out of these Michelin's That's all I got out of two sets of the stock Metzler's. Time will tell but so far I'm very,very happy with the overall performance of this tire and the slightly higher rear tire height in the 55 vs the stock 50 is not an issue. Actually, the higher height feels better. My ride is a 2010 Triumph Thunderbird 1700 ABS. So far a great tire

    Michelin Commander 2 - Kevin HD 2008   CT Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Smooth, grippy, nice looking
    Cons: None

    Sure this tire felt different when I first rode away with it. but in a good way that kept improving.This tire is super grippy, smooth, tracts very well. I believe this will be the tire of choice for my bike now. My last tires were on my bike for over 16,000 miles. Replaced them both with these Michelin Commander 2's I just love the way they feel and handle. Too soon to give a mileage report, but I believe I should get at least 18,000 miles on them I will be very happy2008 HD Ultra ClassicThe service from Competition Accessories was outstanding, fresh tires, quick service, best prices

    Michelin Commander 2 tires - chas   MN Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Price, Name
    Cons: None

    I have never purchased Michelin tires before, At first they did not feel quite right , but with a few hundred miles on them they are getting better and hold to the road very nicely My corners were a little funny at first, however they are gripping much better I do recommend these tires now, but will have to see if they will get the mileage people claim.

    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.

    Commander 2 tires - Donald   KY Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Looks good excellent gripping and water dispersal aggressive tread design good price
    Cons: Cant think of any

    Very pleased with product excellent tire overall fast shipping & handling good customer service

    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

    Harley Charlie  
    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.

    Good tires - Alvin L   TX Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great wearing tires with decent wet pavement grip
    Cons: Not cheap

    My stratoliner deluxe ran great with these.

    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.

    Commander 2 - GW   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Excellent Milage Handleing and wet Traction on Rear Tire .
    Cons: Front tires have had poor Milage .

    I am on my third Commander 2 Rear Tire and am happy in every way with the Rears . I run my tires to the cords before I change them . The commander 2 Front tire in the 100 90 19 has Reduced tread depth . I get Way better Mileage out of the Metzler ME 888 on the front ....I have logged Over 500 000 K on motorcycles and have tried every tire out there that fit on my bikes. I change and Balance my own tires when ever I can .I ride a Harley Super Glide loaded heavy when on tour . Love the Commander 2 Rears. I will go back to running a Metzler on the front for the superior Mileage .

    In the wind - In the wind   DE Recommended by Reviewer: No
    Pros: Great traction
    Cons: Rough ride

    Didn't think Michelin made bias tires, but was willing to check this out since I have had Michelin tires for motorcycles and pickup truck several times and am impressed with the ride and mileage longevity they provide.Was very hesitant since they were bias tires, but figured I would give it a go since it had the Michelin brand. Once you go radial, you do not want to go back to bias tires.Like the traction they provide, do not like the ride. Too rough. Rated for 13K miles, so I'm looking forward to seeing if that works out. If so, I would add a half star.Already have 1000 on the tires. Front & Back

    Michelin commander 2's - Mike   WI Recommended by Reviewer: No

    Have about 1200 miles on front and rear michelin commander 2' about 1200 miles into a 3 week 4000 mile trip and considering getting them off, the worse tire I have ever 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
