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.

Is there a specific load recommendation for Commander III ?

Michelin advises to respect the maximum load that is  recommended bythe bike manufacturer. If the vehicle is over loaded (in reference of the manufacturer recommendations), tire failure and loss of control of the vehicle can happen..

Thank you for your feedback. MICHELIN motorcycle tires are not covered by a regular mileage guarantee. However, used in normal service on the vehicle on which they were originally fitted and in accordance with the maintenance recommendations and safety warnings contained in the owner’s manual (https://motorcycle.michelinman.com/motorbike/faq-motorbike), they are covered by a limited warranty against defects in workmanship and materials for the life of the original usable tread, or six years from date of purchase, whichever occurs first. At that time, all warranties, express or implied, expire. Replacement will be made in accordance with the terms and conditions described under “How Replacement Charges are Calculated” within the warranty booklet.

Commander 2 Vs Commander III

Mike - November 11, 2020

I have an 08 HD Softail Classic, i have been running the commander 2 for about 3 years and love them. I recently needed a new front and at the time the commander 2 was not available so i purchased and installed a commander 3, I did not even make it a couple of miles when i noticed a buzz in the handle bars. The dealer double checked the balance and installation which all checked out, after another ride the buzz was still there. As a resolve did end up finding a commander 2 from another vendor in my size 130/90 16, after install the buzz was no longer present with the commander 2. I ended up looking into the buzz issue myself i found out they are having a issue with the commander 3 series tires and if you do a quick google search i am not the only one that has has an issue. My dealer spoke with his Michelin representative and ended up sending the tire back under warrantee. It took 3 months to get a credit, to top it off the credit was for less then the original purchase price. My dealer did the best they could and also explained the have recently had to deal with an issue with this tire on other bikes, unfortunately it appears Michelin has dropped the ball with the new Commander 3 series. I never write reviews but after going through this i am hoping i might save someone from making the same mistake.
