    Great Tires! Great Service!

    0 5/5 robert loera - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: CONTINENTAL MOTION Tire Set 120/70zr17 Front & 190/50zr17 Rear 190 50 17 120 70 17 2 Tire Set I was a little unsure about wether to order Continental Tires or not because I've never heard anything about them good or bad. But after having them in my hands and seeing the quaility and construction, I'm very impressed indeed! I installed them on a Superbike, a 2007 ZX10R. These tires handle fantastic! The ride is smooth as silk and they grip like a vise! They are very soft, you can dig your finger nails into the rubber so you know right away their gonna grip the road well. I suprised to learn theyy are a German tire, so I guess that's why they are such high quality? I would definatly recommend!!! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 13, 2013

    0 5/5 tyler stradtman - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Michelin Commander II Motorcycle Tire Cruiser Rear - 180/65-16 81H (Automotive) I bought a front(130/70/18) and rear (180/65/16) set for my 2010 street glide. what a fantastic tire. the handling compared to the stock dunlops is phenomenal. they rode better, and they lasted much longer too. the front tire wore out first after ~18000 miles. the rear lasted until the end of the trip, 21000 miles. they handled great all the way until the end. they survived rain, ice, dirt, and mud. i wouldnt recommend mud or ice, but it does great in the rain. they were sticky all the way until my footboards were scraping. probably further if i couldve done it(i tried, the brackets on the footboard dont appreciate it. so after two months, 21000 miles, 48 states, and part of canada these tires are highly recommended for anybody looking to do long rides. i wont put any other tire on mine as long as its still in one piece 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 25, 2013

    Good tire

    0 5/5 CHRIS - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) Bought along w/ 712 Shinko front tire for my Honda vt1100c Shadow Spirit. I thin it is a great deal over the stock Bridgestone tires. Grip is great wet & dry. On the 800 mile shake down run the day after installing never had a tire worry on twisty mountain roads (paved and an accidental 20 mile dirt road excursion, thanks TomTom) in the Charlottesville/Lexington Virginia area. Will buy Shinko again. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 10, 2012

I had my mechanic install this rear tire for me and filled both front and this tire with helium (or nitrogen)..I can't remember right now. But I do recommend that instead of air. But anyway. Tire looks great and grips the road very nicely. I highly recommend this tire and this deal! Shinko? Who woulda thought?

    Second set on my Harley

    0 5/5 Harleyjoe - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Michelin Commander II Reinforced Motorcycle Tire Cruiser Rear - 130/90-16 (Automotive) This is my very first review of anything i've purchased on here. I felt these tires deserved one. This is the second set that i've installed on my 2007 Harley FLHTCU, and i couldn't be happier. I wanted to wait until i rode these to the wear limit before reviewing. They are the absolute best handling tires i've every owned, and prior to these i've used the OEM Dunlops exclusively. Never got more than 9000 miles on rear and 20,000 on the front. The Michelin still has tread left on them at 15000 miles on the rear, and 25000 miles on the front. The only reason i'm changing them now is that i've got a 2000 mile trip planned and didn't want to trust 2 year old tires for it. I've got absolutely no complaints on the Michelin tires. The handle and feel great, and they wear like iron.. Highly recommend. And the plus side, is you can get them on Amazon cheaper than the OEM tires. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 24, 2014

    Michelin is the best!

    0 5/5 CadeCampbell - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Michelin Commander II Reinforced Motorcycle Tire Cruiser Rear - 130/90-16 (Automotive) I love Michelin tires on automobiles, but have yet to run them on my Motorcycle. Just got back from a 1,200 mile trip and love these tires. I have ran Avon Venom and Metzler me880 for years. I wanted a tire that would last longer as the previously mentioned tires wear out in the center too quick(4,000 miles top) even with faithful air pressure maintenance. I went through torrential down pours, rough alpine roads(Silverton,CO) and they didn't let me down once. Smooth running, water displacing, road gripping performance from a manufacturer at the top of the market. Get these tires now!

    0 5/5 Amanda B. "AmandaB" (Left Coast, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Michelin Commander II Reinforced Motorcycle Tire Cruiser Rear - 130/90-16 (Automotive) 2001 Harley Davidson FXDL Dyna Low RiderI HATE-HATE-HATED how the stock Dunlops handled. I don't do too many long rides, but I commute by bike whenever I can and end up riding around 6000 miles a season. The Dunlops felt like every little crease and groove in the road was grabbing my handlebars away from me. I swapped bikes with my husband several times to see if he thought there was something wrong with mine (I thought there MUST be!).The difference with these tires is like NIGHT and DAY, and my bike is darn near perfect now! I ride over heavily grooved concrete with these and hardly even notice. Quick, easy, responsive swerving and turning, smooth smooth ride. I don't care if the softer rubber means I have to replace them twice as often. It's WORTH IT! <Edit - I'm happy to see other reviews reporting that they don't actually wear too fast!>Oh, and they arrived super-quick, too. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 6, 2013

    great tire

    0 5/5 Craig D. Lewis - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Dunlop D404 Metric Cruiser Rear Tire - 170/80H-15/Black I don't "love" it, but I give it 5 stars. I have a Honda VTX 1800 and this is the same tire that came on the bike new. I have never had any issues with traction on acceleration, braking or turning. The original lasted about 15,000 miles. When I ordered it, there was a prompt saying something like, "Warning, this tire does not fit your bike." I ordered EXACTLY the same tire, so I ignored the prompt. When it arrived, it looked a LOT smaller. Kind of freaking out, I called the service department at my bike shop. They said not to worry, and that they always look smaller before installation. They were right, It fits exactly like the old one. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 7, 2014

    the real size is of a 140 tire, even ...

    0 3/5 ACTIVE "likes watches" (spokane. wa.) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Dunlop D404 Metric Cruiser Rear Tire - 170/80H-15/Black the real size is of a 140 tire, even it does say 170 for wide. No motorcycle tire is made to last over 4500 miles. Fronts need to have tread 8mm deep, and be flat to last, at least 3 inches wide on the ground, the rears need to be 6 inches across and have tread 17mm deep, before it makes the ware nubs. only this will make them last to 10,000 miles. Sadly, we as seen as suckers, as no price makes any difference in lasting. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 27, 2014
