constant vibration on front tire

Mitch - September 11, 2021

Switched to Commander 3's from 2's due to the higher silica compound, was excited about the additional grip capacity it would provide. After a thorough winter service, tires, wheel bearings, fork and swing arm. I was looking forward to getting on the road. From this first moment I could feel a buzzing in my grips, I told myself this would go away after a brief breaking. This was not the case, the vibration has been consistent since the tires were installed, it is prevalent when riding straight up, it goes away while turning or doing a slalom type maneuver returning as you cross the centerline of the tire.. it has the sensation of a wheel bearing going bad.. tire has been reballenced which was fine and a second set of new wheel bearings installed to remove that from the equation. Problem still exists. Saving money now to go back to the Commander 2.as I don't have confidence in this tire while riding

Vibration Issues - Tires Should Be Recalled

Nate Z - September 3, 2021

While these tires do have good grip, any positive in the tires is massively overshadowed by the terrible issues causing vibration that transmits through the entire front end of the bike. From 45-50 MPH I get an intense "buzzing" sensation through the handlebars, severe enough that it also causes the fairing on my Road Glide to vibrate and make noise. At various other speeds you can feel vibrations in the floor boards, seat, etc as well. Apparently this is a known issue, but Michelin just keeps making the tires. I was initially told that it would go away after a break in period, but 3000 miles later it has only gotten worse. I've spoken with at least 6 other riders in person that are experiencing the exact same problem, including a dealership mechanic I had look at my bike because I thought perhaps the issue was my wheel bearings going bad. Michelin - shame on you for not taking this tire off the market until you solve the problem!
