PostSubject: Michelin Commander II tyres   Thu Mar 06, 2014 4:47 pm

I'm coming up to needing a new front tyre in the next few weeks so have been having a look around to see what's out there now and came across the Michelin Commander II.  Michelin are making fantastic claims for milage without any loss of handling or stability.  As an old engineer these two things seem to be mutually exclusive but very appealing if they can make it work.  Has anybody tried them ?

I've not tried the Commander II, but Michelin make a lot of dual compound tyre's which get good reviews, They've probably put there dual compound technology into cruiser tyre's now as it's been around for a few years for sports bikes, They get the good mileage by using a hard compound round the centre of the tyre whilst still maintaining good handling by using a softer compound on the edges.

You won't go wrong with Michelin MTII, great reviews form what I have read. Not used them myself but they certainly are rated well.

Heard good things about them as well &       If those two guys have recommended them even if its only from what they have read or heard I would be inclined to go with what they say as well
