Michelin will showcase its new MICHELIN® Commander® III tire line-up for V-Twin Cruisers and Touring bikes throughout the weekend of Oct. 17–20 during Biketoberfest® in Daytona at Bruce Rossmeyer’s Harley-Davidson. Available for purchase starting in January 2020, the new custom tire line is the official tire of Daytona Beach Bike Week, the World’s Largest Motorcycle Event®.

Expanding on the highly acclaimed MICHELIN® Commander® II tire, the newest addition to the cruiser portfolio is designed to deliver exceptional wet grip and extraordinary durability. The MICHELIN® Commander® III Touring tire is designed to go the distance for Baggers with excellent wet grip and longevity that is designed to exceed its predecessor with new tread compounds. The MICHELIN® Commander® III Cruiser tire is engineered to deliver outstanding wet grip without compromising longevity compared to its predecessor. The distinctive tread patterns and patented velvet sidewall designs of the new line enhance the styling of all V-Twin motorcycles.

“Michelin developed this tire line to optimize riding enjoyment with a focus on improving the tread life and wet grip versus the already widely accepted Commander II tire line,” said Shane Messner, director of two-wheel at Michelin North America. “The commitment to MICHELIN® Total Performance™ makes the MICHELIN Commander III tire line the trusted choice for the v-twin community.”

Consumers can now enter for an exclusive opportunity to become a MICHELIN Commander III tire ambassador. Riders who register for a Commander ID by Dec. 31, 2019, will have access to a $50 rebate with the purchase of a set of MICHELIN Commander III tires by Feb. 29, 2020. With every five referrals, ambassadors can earn an additional $100 in MasterCard reward cards. Visit https://motorcycletirepromo.com for complete details.

Wondering the same thing what is the difference between the Commander 111 cruiser tire and the Commander 111 touring tire.

The tires are pretty nice but on getting your rebate that's a whole nother story they say by front and back set get $50 rebate I bought two full sets got stiffed on one rebate due to this I will probably be going back to the old brand when you can't count on their word why would you buy from them

So what is the difference between the Commander II and the Commander III that improved the wet whether and cornering traction? And how does that change on the Commander III affect the longevity of the tire?

Brian Owen | January 17, 2020 @ 8:59AM
Who has this tire in ky or where can I order one?

Gerald Street | January 14, 2020 @ 8:45PM
Hopefully they are serious about improved wet traction......the II I briefly (3000 km) had on the back of my FLHXSE3 was scary in the rain....especially if it cold out!
