Rubber cracking
« on: November 29, 2020, 08:46:39 AM »

Running Michelin Commander 2's  they got 5,825 miles.

This cracking is on both sides all around the tyre. I'm not to concerned about it as it's just small cracking but will keep an eye on it for getting worse.

BTW, it's in the same place around the tyre

Anyone have this experience with C2s?

Is this just the rear? Or both?
Assuming normal riding and no canyon carving,hot rodding, with proper pressure I would be checking it often.
MAY be a poor QC or production run? Worth to keep an eye on it.
Just my 2c.

Just the rear Mike,....and yeah no hot rodding. I'm just a straight pleasure rider may hit 75/80/90 mph on the motorway for a short  run overtaking or joining the motorway but as a norm I'm a speed limit rider.

Was just wondering if anyone else with Commander 2's has had this with their rubber

One of our guys here has those tires on a street glide, he decided to reduce the rear pressure from 41 to 25 psi because he thought it rode too hard.
He needs better shocks.
Told him not a good idea, I’ll look at HIS rear tire next week to see if it shows wear like yours.
