Michelin Commander III Cruiser Tire
  • MICHELIN Commander III Cruiser tires offer the best wet grip among leading competitors (1)
  • The front tire offers an optimized groove design with a higher void ratio as compared to the MICHELIN Commander II tire to help maximize water dispersion.
  • The new, more rounded profile as compared to the MICHELIN® Commander® II tire optimizes the contact patch across the entire profile for a more planted feel even during cornering.

(1) Based on internal test conducted in Fontange, France using a 2016 Harley-Davidson Forty-Eight fitted with 130/90 B 16 front tire and 150/80 B16 rear tire comparing lap times and stopping distances of MICHELIN® Commander® III Cruiser tires with METZELER® CruisetecTM, METZELER® M888 MarathonTM Ultra, and DUNLOP® Elite 4 tires. Actual on-road results may vary.

Don't buy, picture is of a Commander II... III's have a wide section of the center contact area with no thread.
Long time buyer of Michelin Commander II's. Recently upgraded wheels on my 2017 Street Glide and could no longer order the II's. The picture that is displayed does not represent what the rear III actually looks like. The center section contact area of the tire has a wide section of no thread. I have about 600 to 800 miles on the new tire, 3 different occasion's on slow speed turns with light throttle it has broken the rear end of the Harley loose on dry pavement. Yesterday was the first time on wet roads, no traction while using 1/4 throttle from 1st to 4th gear. Would not want to find out how this tire is in hard braking.

Very best I ever had on this bike so far
I previously had the Commander 2 on my ultra Limited it came originally new with Dunlop tires the twos were a huge improvement over the Dunlop and now I put the threes on after about seven hundred they are an improvement over the twos this Ultra limited has never handled so well very neutral feel truth turns I mounted and balanced them myself they are a very hard sidewall Tire a little difficult to but I got it done without too much hassle they balanced out with very little weight the dry traction is incredible I have not ridden in the rain but if it's anything like the too. I'm sure it will be an awesome Tire in the rain

I will not buy another one.
I haven’t ridden a single foot on this tire and I already hate it.
Local shop (Harley-Davidson experts) is having a terrible time getting it to seat the bead on my factory wheel.
Going to have to put a damned tube in it in order to open it up enough to seat it.
He questioned why there were no spacers holding the tire ‘open’... says ALL the tires he buys come with cardboard inserts to keep them spread open enough to make setting the bead a snap.
All the money I saved by buying it here, (plus more!) has been spent trying to mount this piece of shit.
