BEST TIRE ON THE MARKET

Will's Restorations - December 11, 2021

Okay see you hear a lot of people making claims on their reviews of buzzing in the tire and some vibration, I will tell you that who's ever mounting these tires doesn't know what they're doing and needs to follow the proper policies and protocols for installing tires, I have been using Commander 2s and Commander 3s on all my motorcycles and have never experienced anything but great performance and incredible handling. I see a lot of people not taking care of their tire pressures and making sure that the tire is seated properly on the rim, if you are having problems with vibration it has nothing to do with the tire and if you look there will be a seam or a line on the commanders that show you that the tire has been mounted properly if this seam around is not even that is the problem is you have a clown mounting the tires or not balancing them properly. It's absolutely ridiculous to hear people make these claims about a tire that is nothing short of amazing. As far as traction and wet surface traction and longevity there is not a better tire on the market hands down.

Good dry weather performance

Mike - December 3, 2021

This tire is great on turn in and dry grip. it does have the vibration/ handle bar buzz everyone complains about. wet traction is fair. poor acceleration traction in wet on lines or tar snakes

Terrible after sales response

Mike - November 9, 2021

Purchased a 180 65 16 Commander III for the rear of my Nomad bike. The tire is so noisy I had to take it off. Michelin claims the reason is because my bike OEM size is 170 70 16 and I have mis-applied the tire. Lots of others have used this size with no problems. Their warranty is useless.

Hi Mai, motorcycles should be equipped with the size of tire specified by the motorcycle manufacturer or the Michelin fitment guide. The only recommended sizes are those that are listed by the motorcycle manufacturer or the Michelin fitment guide. Do not mount tires wider or narrower than the original equipment tires, either of which could negatively affect the motorcycle's handling.
