Trying out the Michelin Commander II rear tire

These are being marketed as a "ultra mileage tire". Just put a rear one on my '11 road king. The stock dunlops did a good job, so these will have tough shoes to fill. I got about 14k out of my last two dunlop rears and 25k out of the front tire. The major problem with the dunlop is that they began to cup right when they hit the wear bars, its created a vibration whenever you leaned the bike. Will update this thread as mileage increases.

When I was looking for a longer lasting tire the Commander 2 showed up often, but it isn't available in my size. I hope the Pirelli Angels I had mounted come close to the mileage of your old Dunlops.

I'm running Avon Venoms front and rear. I have about 14k on the front and 9k on the rear. Both tires are still in great shape.
