Best I've ever had!
This tire rocks! When I first took off after the installation, the tires were grabbing all the loose gravel/rocks and spitting them up unto my fenders of my 2009 Street Glide, which startled the heck out of me until I realized what it was, drove another block, then all was quiet and smooth. The tire grips better than any other tire I've ever bought for this or any other bike that I've owned. I was recommended to purchase this tire for my bike by my mechanic, and I'd like to pay it forward by recommending the purchase of this tire.

Great tire!
Just rode this tire 1,500 miles. Ran the Dragon and Cherohala Skyway. Stuck really good, wet and dry. Got caught in a "monsoon" on the way home, and the tire showed excellent wet weather traction. Hoping the mileage is better than stock, but time will tell.

Best tires ever
Needed a rear on my 2012 Ultra and I just purchased front tire for special rebate from Dunlop if two tires were purchased. My front has only 12,000 mi. on it , the orig. equip.front Dunlop got 32,000 so i figure another 20K or so. The American Elite gets super mileage and great handling

These tires are great!
Very happy with the performance, price and looks of these tires. Would definitely order them again. Dennis Kirk was prompt in their delivery.

Decent Replacement Tires
Good replacement as far as costs versus HD dealer. Tread design similar to HD stock tire, (I both F&R, I didn't want to mismatch tread designs), I haven't put many miles on these tires yet to fully review the performance. But for $330 for 2, I saved $200 over Dealer price, + another Dunlop promo of $50.

A real road hugger
recently purchased this american eagle elite and for the short time i've had it on my 11 ultra limited i can honestly say "wow, this baby really grabs the road' i thought something was wrong with the bike at first, but as i kept riding i realized this is just one great tire. totally happy. and it works in unison with the american eagle elite i recently put on the rear. and not for nuttin, it's a lot cheaper than the harley version

What Dunlap front tire do you recommend for a 2014 Electra-glide ltd?
Trickrider on Mar 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'd highly recommend the American Elite for both front and back. I'm riding a 2013 Ultra Limited and I'm on my second set. The tire has a slightly different tread pattern than the OEM tire, when crossing metal grate draw bridges, the American Elites don't try to wander all over like the OEMs did. I replaced my first set of American Elites at 15K miles, only because I didn't keep up with tire pressure and they cupped. At 15K miles, they still had plenty of tread life left, unlike the OEM which had to be replaced at 15K. I'll be buying these again when the time comes. Hope this helps.
What is the date was it manufactured?
A shopper on May 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Our tires get rotated all the time when new shipments come in. The dates are anywhere between 6 months to 1 1/2" years. Can't tell you the exact date tire you'll get.
