Product Information

Dunlop American Elite Rear Tire

Since 1984, Harley’s have rolled out of the factory with Dunlop tires. Designed with Harley, for Harley, and crafted in the U.S.A., the new Dunlop American Elite is the recommended tire for any touring Harley made in 2009 or newer.

 

Multi tread construction places a durable compound in the middle, where we put most of our miles on. Side compounds are softer for greater grip when leaning the bike over. Additionally, the new tread pattern works well in both wet and dry road conditions, making the American Elite an all-season option.

 

Features:

  • Made, tested and designed in the U.S.A.
  • H rated for speeds up to 130 MPH
  • Available in blackwall, narrow whitewall and wide whitewall
  • 2008 and older models use Dunlop D407/408
  • Tread design provides even tread wear and quiet operation in all conditions, both wet and dry
  • Item # 30353
  • SKU #
  • Mfr. Part #

2nd set performance

So this is my 2nd set of Elite tires. This set was put on 1000 miles before my trip, which was 22 days and 12017 miles around America. Pulling a Bushtec trailer, 1 up, all types of roads, temps from 40 to 105 degrees. 300 miles from home the rear tire got squirely, wear consistent, pressure good but tire wear was at the wear bars. 1st set got around 14000 miles. For me these tires wear out about the same as the 888's, commander IIs. I ride 20k+ in a year. Don't know how riders are getting over 20k on a rear tire, all the riders I have talked to that run similar tires mentioned are getting same mileage as I get.. My ride is 900 lbs. + 180 for the rider + stuff. Good tire did order same tire again from MC Superstore

Best Tire So Far

I just wore out my second Elite on my 12 Street Glide. My ole lady and I took a trip went from San Diego to Main for a lobster lunch By way of Canada. 500 miles Highway the rest was back roads. We rode 9320 miles door to door in five weeks with a new Elite. We were loaded to the gills with our Camping gear 4 man tent cooking gear and every open space my ole lady could find she fit more clothes. Going over Bear Tooth Pass we was scrapping running boards on most curves. I had no problems with my tires even got another 9K miles on the rear when I got home. I get a little cupping on the side tread as they wear I can hear when I lean but other than that I would recommend this, Oh and I don't recommend for riders who only use there rear brakes as the rubber is a little harder so tire will slide easier than stock Dunlop. I am ordering another right now.

Hasn't Worn It Out Enough to Give An Honest Review

Just to be honest I haven't worn the tire out so I don't feel like I can give an honest review on this product yet. But what I can tell you is so far after having the tire for about a month or so and riding on it in wet and dry conditions that So far I am very satisfied with the traction,braking & stability of it. How ever I am yet to see what the longevity of the tire is and how well all those factors last according to the over all wear of the tire through its life span.

Dunlop American Elite

Blew the rear Dunlop 402 which I don't like anyway and was going for Michelin but didn't have them in the size I needed. Got both front and back for the match. Tread looks great and the build of the tire allows for a tighter turning radius. Very stabile at speed and way more nimble than with the other tires. Traction is very good dry, haven't tried them in wet. Only have a couple thousand miles on them so don't know about life, hoping for more than 12k that I've normally gotten with Dunlops.

Happy with this tire

I replaced my worn rear tire with exact same tire about 3 weeks ago. So far the ride and handling is good and I'm happy with this tire.
