2016 Heritage Softail with laced wheels (date codes in the mid 2015's) and 5,800 miles on the original Dunlop D401 tires.

MT90HB-16 front
150/80HB-16 rear

I usually run the factory Dunlop D401's, and have been pretty happy with them, but I never get more than 9,000 on a rear tire.

What tires is everyone using for this bike ? I have a Michelin Commander II rear tire in my stash........



Thanks,

Kevin

This is the first time I saw this good that you bumped it. I never got 9k out of a rear tire. I do like Dunlop's for the strong sidewall. I had 12 psi once on the rear and rode to a gas station 7 miles away. I can't tell about other tires other than a Shinko which seemed as good as the Dunlop for way less money.
