An industry benchmark, the Michelin Commander II tire helps set the standard in longevity and wet weather grip. Cornering performance is just as strong and predictable as well, making this a great all-around city and touring tire. Amplified Density Technology: A highly dense, more-rigid tire casing, which helps deliver excellent feedback and handling. Commander II 90-thread ply is 25% more dense than conventional plies. Aramid tread plies on the rear tire resist centrifugal growth, reduce weight and provide excellent stability. All-new rubber compounds for remarkable wet grip, without compromising durability.
