Front American Elite 130/70HB-18 Blackwall Tire
After reading spme excellent reviews for these tires, I purchased a set for my Street Glide. I have only put a few hundred miles on the tires to date (just installed last week) but I reallly notice a better handling and smoother ride from these tires compared to the stock Dunlops.

high milage and great price
these look like the exact same tires on my harley, same tread and all. the difference is they do not say harley on the sides. the biggest difference is the savings over purchasing these at hd dealership.
i am sure i will get the same mileage out of these as the the original tires.

Dunlop front tire American Elite
Purchased a set of tires that replaced the previous set of Dunlops on my Street Glide, because of the excellent mileage I got on the former set. I got almost 17,000 miles out of the previous set. To me this is pretty good wear. So far I've got only about 2,000 miles on 'em. Wanted new tires for our Texas trip. Excellent traction and handling. So far no rain experience with this set, but the previous set did fine in wet weather.

Great buying experience
Haven't had a chance to try the tires yet as it's snowing in Northern Illinois, but the purchase experience with Dennis Kirk was great! Competitive pricing and fast shipping. This was my first time buying from DK, but I'll be back!
