Michellin commander 2 or Avon Spirit st
« on: April 23, 2018, 06:03:50 pm »
I am in need of a new rear tire 150/80x16 and was looking for people opinions on this tire.  I am not an aggressive rider so don't required grip at the edge of the tire.  I do ride when it rains so wet traction would be great and a decent life will be nice.  I currently have Avon Azaro st which work great.  I am open to any other tire people found to be a good value.

thanks,
Alex

Having has a commander II on my C10, I would say stay with the Axarro, or go to the 3D X-m on that size.
I had several instances where the Commander spun easily with moisture. Not just rain, but dew on a white line caused me to pucker once whne not going very fast.
Great grip in the dry, but horrible in the wet.
I removed it with about 50% life left.
