Well boys, just getting back into riding. I bought a 2012 Ultra. I am going to need a set of tires soon just curious on what is a good voice and what people's opinions are.

Well here it goes, tires, mufflers , cams are mostly all based on preference IMO, my 2 cents i went with the Dunlop American Elites and love them, i think they are better than my stock OE dunlops a step better i would say and a better looking tire, also made in good ole U S of A. You will get alot of good options and opinions from several members, and i will say that there are plenty of good choices. For me this was my choice, Good Luck!

Dunlop American Elite second generation are great tires. Avon are the softest but you won't get many miles out of them.

so many fanboys for the american elite, i'm gonna have to be different..........


ah, hell, who am i kidding? the elites are awesome.

when i was shopping for mine, every place that i checked all had them for the same price. so check a few out, check out their shipping policies, whether they have them in stock, etc. and then order from whomever you like best.

American Elite; Revzilla. Crazy difference over stock. Had Commander II on my last ride, great handling and wear, AE is smoother on straight line to me...

Here's another vote for Michelin Commander II's.
I bought them from Jake Wilson last season.
I had Avon's on before and loved the ride and handling but like was stated before they don't last long.
The Michelin's also handle very well in the rain too.

Wherever you buy tires, online or brick & mortar, verify the dates on them. You can tell manufacture date by looking on the sidewall for DOT and some letters/numbers. The last 4 digits represent the week & year of manufacture. For example DOT...4816 translates to the 48th week of 2016. I wouldn't buy anything older than a year or so. Likely, you'll find much newer tires for sale.
