  • That time again. Tire.

    Time for yet another front tire. Interested to hear about comparison between a Commander II and any other premium tire (not a damn Stinko) run from New to worn out. Anyone wear out both CIIs and a set of CIIIs yet?

    All I can say , is that I just put CIII's on my '01 . The first turn onto the pavement of the Highway was like rolling on Rails smooth as glass . I mounted these tires at home with no Balance of any kind . Took it up to 100 mph and not the least disoriented control or handling . I 'm running 40 lb. Front , 42 Rear . On Scales with me onboard 1084 lbs. Full tank . This ride is the Best I have ever experienced in the last 52 years on any Bike I've owned .

      I used to run Bridgestone Spitfires on my 1998 Shadow 1100 Spirit and liked them. In 2016, I switched to the Michelin Commander IIs and the performance was noticeable! It tracked well, was great in rain, and they lasted a long time.

      I bought my '04 RoadStar 1700 in 2017 and immediately installed the Commander IIs on it since I liked them so much on the previous bike. I have been able to get out much this year, but have put 10,000 miles on this set of tires and they still are in great shape with plenty of tread! There is something about this tire that just feels "right." I haven't tried the Commander IIIs yet, but I have been thrilled with these tires so far!

        I'm on my 3rd set of C2s now. I was on the original Commander before. I'm trying to figure out the C3. If I read the ad copy on the 2 versions, neither version of the C3 is going to give me any more of what I want out of a tire, so I'm likely continuing with the C2. It's the best selling motorcycle (not scooter) tire in Michelin company history for a reason.

          I have a rear CIII Touring on my Road Star (double darkside with Dunlop wintersport car tire on back). Stock 130 width... Seems fine sonfar.. Ran it to 115 mph but only have less than 1000 miles on it. Supposed to be longest lasting cruiser tire
