Can the Commander III be mixed with other tires?

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.

Horrible Ride

Scott - September 9, 2020

Great grip but at ~1,000 miles (now over 3,000) they started riding randomly bumpy. I've now had them rebalanced twice and they are spot on. IT's like they are going out of round while riding. Pressure, temp, road surface doesn't seem to matter and for one stretch it's like riding on glass. Then with no other change the bumping starts which ranges from mild to very annoying except when it does it in corners and then it feels dangerous. Absolutely DO NOT recommend.

By Far, the most cutting edge Tire of the decade!

Booma - July 24, 2020

The Commander III's are so amazing! Where do i begin? It is the most advanced, revolutionary designed tire since the commander 2 was first released. I have currently made 3 trips from Los Angeles, to Las Vegas as well as commuting around town, totaling up around 5,300 miles! The best part is they still have plenty of tread life left, looking brand spanking new! They definitely beat the Dunlop Elite 4 by a landslide, with unmatched precision and control on the road. I recommend to every Motorcycle rider alive!
