    Overall Tire/Tyre Review

    The Michelin Scorcher 11 does not have many reviews at this time. The tire was developed specifically to enhance handling of the Harley Davidson SuperLow by reducing mass and inertia front and rear. Some felt other tires were a better choice, either a better value or better handling characteristics.

    Developed specifically to enhance handling of Harley Davidson SuperLow. Reduces mass and inertia front and rear, improves steering response.


    Felt the Dunlop 240 was best value, Avon Cobra best handling overall for cruiser. Good discussion on a variety of cruiser tires.
