Now I know there are other brands of tires that you can choose to put on your baby, but for my baby I will put on a set of these. Do I rally need new tires, No, I do not but the OEM tires that came with the scout sixty are the Kendra tires and I have had some front end skidding in the rain on turning and some other events that make me question the Kendra tires.

The Kendra tires that came with the scout sixty are reliable and have held up to 4000 miles that I have put on the bike, but the performance has not always been there for me. And now I heard that Indian Motorcycle new scout sixty comes with Pirelli tires for the 2018. So it is not just me that decided that the Kendra tires were not as good as hoped for.

    Thank you for the post. I am also a big fan of motorcycles myself. The two features that I found interesting on this set of tires is that they are excellent on wet surfaces and have that longitudianal tread design that provides excellent grip on wet surfaces. Riding around in the rain can be quite dangerous. I am glad that there are tires in the market that address this issue. The scout sixty is a cool looking motorcycle.

      Kenny,Thank you for the comment, the grip of these tires on wet road surfaces is superb and this is due in part to the tread design of the tires. Research and development have done a great job of coming out with a tire that is functional and of good value. I appreciate your honest opinion on the subject matter and I also think the scout sixty is cool looking.Thank you,JesusB

    I have street glide 2016 model. I want to change its rear tire as now I am not satisfied with its grip (especially wet grip). According to your review Michelin Commander II is one of the best option available and Michelin has its name in this industry. I am just concerned about its wet grip as the area where I live, we have a lot of rains. Apart from this concern I think this will be the best decision. I am looking forward for this as my rear tire.
    Thanks for the information bro.

      Hari, The wet grip of the Michelin Commander II is awesome because of the new longitudinal tread design which provides water evacuation and excellent grip. I would consider replacing the front and rear tires in one shot and this will give you better gripping power.Thanks for the comment,JesusB
