Can the Commander III be mixed with other tires?

To ensure the best level of performance and safety, our ranges are developed based on a uniform fitting to the front and rear. It is therefore recommended that different ranges are not mixed on the same motorcycle. If different generations are mixed, it is advisable to fit the MICHELIN Commander III to the front wheel.

Commander III Front Tire Vibration

Don't have one - September 11, 2021

Purchased a set of Commander III tires for my 2015 Ultra Limited. First ride out noticed a vibration/buzz in the front tire between 40 to 50 km,ph . Contacted dealer and than Michelin. Found out that they are having a problem with this tire and the second rep I talked to at Michelin admitted to this being a problem. They said that they will take care of the problem, will wait and see. Next time I will read the reviews first. Had commander II,s before and were great tires, will probably go to a different brand next time, will see what happens. Have not had them on long enough to give a accurate review as to there performance.

Stop selling these for Harley Davidson Motorcycles

none - September 1, 2021

I just purchased these 29 Jun 2021. I received feedback vibration through the front suspension at all speeds. During 20mph-40mph it feels like the tire is coming apart. The tires were professionally mounted and balanced and the wheel bearings are good. I have never experienced this until I used these tires. Searching online, Michelin has had this problem since day one, well over a year ago. I do not trust these tires and want a refund. I do not want a defective exchange where I will most likely get another bad set of tires and have to pay $250 to have them installed. Only to repeat the process. I used to only buy Michelin for my vehicles. I will not buy another Michelin tire now.

front tire is noisy at 55 mph

dknh - August 31, 2021

These sound like truck tires at 55 mph. They are now like the classic Commander II's. The front is terrible.
