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.

VIBRATION!!!

Disgusted - October 14, 2021

I mounted this tire on the front and feel vibration all the way up through handlebars. 30 & 50 mph. They know about this problem and refuse to help. Read the reviews and it's obvious. Last time I'll be buying Michelin tires for anything! DO NOT BUY!

Commander 3

Chef - October 12, 2021

I have been running Michelin motorcycle tires for a very long time. Just put the Michelin Commander 3 on my 2011 Road Glide Ultra. Great tire up to 69 mph but when I hit 70 mph plus they have a bad vibration and never stops after 70 mph. I will be going next week and buy a new set of ties of a different brand. The Michelin Commander 3 was a waste of my money. Thanks Michelin for 75,000 good miles but no longer. PS I did have them rebalanced

Vibration in front tire

Bart - September 30, 2021

Been running Michelin tires a while now because they seem to ride better than Dunlop’s. No noise when hitting the concrete dividers on concretes roads but this commander 3 front started an rough vibration at about 4,000 miles. When I lean left to right it goes away. Removed front wheel thinking I had a bad wheel bearing. They were ok. Really disappointed in the 3. I know these bikes are hard on tires but I can’t replace tires at 5,000 miles to keep smooth ride
