Can the Commander III be mixed with other tyres?

To ensure the best level of performance and safety, our ranges are developed based on a uniform fitting to the front and rear. It is therefore recommended that different ranges are not mixed on the same motorcycle. If different generations are mixed, it is advisable to fit the MICHELIN Commander III to the front wheel.

Is there a specific load recommendation for Commander III ?

Michelin’s advice is to respect the maximum load recommended by the bike manufacturer.

If the vehicle is over loaded (in reference of the manufacturer’s recommendations), tyre failure and loss of control of the vehicle can happen.

This tire is great on turn in and dry grip. it does have the vibration/ handle bar buzz everyone complains about. wet traction is fair. poor acceleration traction in wet on lines or tar snakes

Terrible after sales response

Mike - November 9, 2021

Purchased a 180 65 16 Commander III for the rear of my Nomad bike. The tire is so noisy I had to take it off. Michelin claims the reason is because my bike OEM size is 170 70 16 and I have mis-applied the tire. Lots of others have used this size with no problems. Their warranty is useless.

Hi Mai, motorcycles should be equipped with the size of tire specified by the motorcycle manufacturer or the Michelin fitment guide. The only recommended sizes are those that are listed by the motorcycle manufacturer or the Michelin fitment guide. Do not mount tires wider or narrower than the original equipment tires, either of which could negatively affect the motorcycle's handling.

Buzzing Commander 3's

OUDNA - November 7, 2021

Everything was good until 3,500miles. The buzz/vibration between 45mph and 60mph on a 2017 Street Glide. Turning these junk tires back in Harley Davidson. Clears up on turns and over 60mph. Disappointing that they still make this tire with all the same issues.
