But not for the reason you'd think.
I have 1 up front, and it grips so well in the rain it has made me realize how bad the stock Dunlop is in the rain. I have no probelm with the stock Dunlops on dry pavement, have always gripped no problem, but I swear it is like riding on ice on any wet pavement.
I really wonder if something is wrong with my back tire it is that bad. I can baby it around turns and the back tire constantly gets loose, I have no confidence in its cornering ability in the wet, whereas the Commander is great in the wet. Recentlyish, I had a light turn red REAL fast at an oily, early rain intersection. I braked as hard as possible and the rear end was all over the place while the front stayed planted even when I added lots of brake. I blamed it on the slipperyness of the road, but now I wonder what would have happend in that situation if I had a Commander o n the rear. I don't hesitate to bet that it would have stayed straight and noot fishtailed.
But anyway, gotta love the commander!!!!
