Great Tire

December 20, 2012

This is my third set on my 07 Road Glide. Great on the Dragon Tail's 318 curves several times, good traction in the rain, and rides great at high speeds on the interstate while doing the "50CC Iron Butt" from Florida to San Diego. I am eager to try the Michelin Commander II, but they don't have my size yet. Another set of the Elite III's is fine with me. They feel great!

Dunlop Elite 3 tires

September 30, 2012

I purchased tires for my 92 Goldwing over 9 years and 20,000 miles ago (I don't recommend going this long normally). They were Dunlop Elite tires. So I believe my purchase of Dunlop Elite 3's from Dennis Kirk to be an excellent buy.

Dunlop E-3 front on GL1500

March 8, 2012

Great tire, even greater price from DK. I bought this E-3 front tire well in advance of needing it because of the great sale price DK gave me. Current E-3 front tire has 18K miles on it and looks to have another 4K to go. Note that E-3 rear comes new with 11/32" tread, while the front has 6/32". You end up with about the same net mileage from each.

I would recommend this item to a friend.
