MONSOON wants to know Dino or Syn?
Michelin Commander II question

I have some HD Roulette Black Ice wheels ordered from LSHD for our '11 Limited and plan to mount up new rubber and then just swap the wheels out once the stock Dunlops are shot. The Dunlops have close to 10k now and still look really good. I would bet at least 3k or more left before the comfort factor of them being to the point of worn too much shows up. My question, if any of you have the Commanders already, was it a good move? The Michelin web site has some riders talking about how good they are, heck one of the guys is actually from less than an hour from me. Just want some input from you guys on them. I run Metz ME880 Marathons on my NRS but don't want them on the ULTra for load reasons. Thanks to all that respond. Ride safe guys.

HDSickness wants to know Dino or Syn?
I have them on my Road King and love them. Quieter than the dunlops great traction and do not wander in grooves like the dunlops did. 12,000 miles on the set now and bet I can get 20,000 out of rear and 30-40 out of front.

If you keep proper air pressure in the stock tires you can get 20,000 miles easy.. They claim the commander II's will get better mileage... ??
