Excellent Tires

August 14, 2015

Love these tires and from what I hear I will get double the mileage the dunlops were getting...harder tires than the dunlops, but so far they ride nice and they have plenty of meat on them.

Excellent way to go

June 4, 2015

Probably one of the best purchases I have made . Tires work well in rain ,they do not try to follow the tar snakes or ridges in the road like other brands do . I would HIGHLY recommend the Commanders to anyone.

Mileage Update

February 16, 2015

Just bought my second set. I put these on my '09 Dyna two years ago and got more than twice the mileage I put on the Dunlops I had on. I still had some tread left but thought I'd start the year fresh.

I would recommend this item to a friend.

08 Superglide

September 15, 2014

These tires ride so much better than the Dunlop's that were on there. Such a smooth ride. Grips the road very well. I would highly recommend these tire to anyone. Not sure about mileage, only have around 1000 on them. So far I am very happy with this purchase.
