Vibration when going straight

Paw Paw - May 1, 2021

My first and last set of Michelins, I wore out the factory Dunlops and put on the Commander 3s. Instantly noticed a vibration in the bars. It goes away at the slightest lean. Center compound might be to hard?? Im not sure if it breaks in or if I will have to replace.

Commander 3 tire is a do not buy

Badtires - April 28, 2021

Thought I’d try the new Commander 3 tire. I had been happy with the Commander 2. The front commander 3 vibrates between 60-66 mph. Took back to dealer and they put another new C 3 on front. To get to balance a lot of tire weights installed on both sides of the wheel in one area. Now it has a harmonic distortion 56-61 mph. JP cycle will only send me another tire😡. Going back to Avon cobra tires, great results and had been very happy with the Avon’s. My mistake for trying with the Mitchlens. I should have read more reviews.
