Proven Longevity

The benchmark in longevity – commissioned third-party tests show that the MICHELIN® Commander® II rear tire lasts almost twice as long as its main competitors.*

 

*Commissioned third party tests conducted in 2011 on public roads comparing MICHELIN Commander II tires, Metzeler ME880, and Dunlop D407/D408 tires in sizes 130/80B17 and 180/65B16. Individual results may vary depending on motorcycle type and operating conditions.

No Compromise on Stability
and Maneuverability

Thanks to its high-density and therefore stiffer frame (MICHELIN Amplified Density Technology), MICHELIN Commander II features premium handling and responsiveness. The top layers in rear tires are made of aramid fibers, which combine resistance and a lightweight feel for perfect stability, even at high speeds.

Comander 2 Roadstar

Roadstar - April 15, 2021

Purchased my 2007 yamaha roadstar 1700 silverado in march of 2019 with a set of the comander 2 tires on them. Tire mileage was unknown upon purchase. I put 5k on it the first year and had to replace the front. Put an additional 5k on that same rear tire and plan to change the rear for the new season, New comander 2 in already ordered. Really impressed with the tire brand. Bike week i went on a 1200 mile trip with a group, All where amazed in how well the big bike would stick like glue for the turns we were taking at the speeds we were going. i could ride the cruiser in the twisties quicker than i could my 250 ninja and i am fairly confident its in the performance of the tires and near endless grip in dry conditions. Hit a few dirt roads through vermont and didnt feel a differance in grip. I have had a few lock ups with both the front and rear wheels and both times the bike stayed true and straight. I went from a ninja 250 up to a 1700 cruiser and was rather nervous about jumping to a big heavy bike, i weight 145lbs. The tires have added so much confidence in me as a rider in both rain or shine. The rear only would break loose in the rain if i gave more than 1/8th throttle but the rear was already worn when i purchesed. After seeing how deep the tread is on my new rear tire and how 10k hardly wore out the rear, more than it already was, i am confident that i can get many more seasons out of these tires. Looking forward to see how many miles i can actually put on the tires before needing to change again with new tires. I will absolutley always use Michelin tires on my Cruisers. I highly recomend these for anyone with a big criuser that puts on miles rain or shine. Michilen man has your back. Hes had mine.

Can’t beat the feel

Wrench - December 27, 2020

I first put the commander ll’s on my road glide ultra at 12k miles when the stock Harley Dunlop’s wore out, 23,000 miles later I put on another set. The way these tires make my bike feel like it weighs half of what she weighs. The first time I put them on I stopped twice because I thought I left something loose, handling was unbelievable! I used to be a Dunlop guy as far back as the early 70’s but no more.

Long lasting and High quality

Levi Yoder - December 25, 2020

I've owned three sets. The first set I rode 23,000 miles front and rear. I had the rear tire go completely flat on the freeway due to a piece of debris, and did not lose control. In fact, I rode several miles to an exit before I realized it was flat. The second set I rode 15,000 miles before I wrecked the bike (not due to the tires) I currently have a set that I've ridden 16,000 miles and counting. After the performance when I got the flat, and due to their ability to last high mileage, I'll always own tires from this line of Michelins.
