Mileage, mileage and more mileage: Dunlop’s all-new Elite 4 with MT Multi-Tread rear tires provide significantly more mileage than single-compound tires.

All Elite 4 rear tires utilize Dunlop’s MT Multi-Tread technology with a long-wearing compound in the center of the tire and a lateral-grip compound on each shoulder, providing increased mileage without sacrificing handling.

New tread pattern helps provide class-leading wet-pavement performance, even wear over the life of the tire, and less road noise.

Available in radial and bias-ply construction, the Elite 4 fits hundreds of touring, cruiser and standard bikes, including current and non-current machines.

High-mileage, even-wear characteristics, and great grip- the all-new Elite 4.

Got to ride about 150 miles today on the new rear tire. I've owned this bike since 06 and have put 70k miles on it. These are the smoothest tires I have had. Here is the thing. Run 42lb the front and 44-46 in the rear
Also 2oz of ceramic balance beads in each from the very start. Just hope they last longer than 8k

UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE

Just got new E4 mounted today on the back. 2 oz. ceramic balance beads installed for balance. Running 44lbs in the rear and 42 in the front. Not had a chance to really try it out yet. Very smooth ride home. About 10 miles. I really hope these work out.

Ok, since I wrote the last review I have talked with a Dunlop factory rep. He has convinced me to give another try on the E4. I may have been running the pressure to low. I will have to give their customer service 5 stars. He had me to take pictures and send them to him. He then sent them to Dunlop engineering dept to analyze the wear pattern. Results were most likely a combination of low pressure and agressive riding. So since I already have a E4 on the front I am going to give e them another chance running higher pressure but most likely will not change riding habits....I live near the Cherohalla Skyway and the Dragon😎😎.

Looks like 8 k is going to get the back tire. Going back to Bridgestone. If you ride straight up may be ok. But if you ride even the least bit aggressive the side will wear way before the center. Also noisy.

GREAT Ride So Far!

I have had only Dunlop tires on my 2008 GL 1800 since it was purchased new. On 9/16/2017 at 71,000 miles, I put new Dunlop Elite 4 tires on (front and rear). I've now ridden 500 miles, mostly highway, and love them. I have Centramatic wheel balancers on the bike and have gotten excellent mileage on my previous Dunlops. Unfortunately, even with the high mileage, my last pair of tires showed a bit of cupping. I'm hoping that these last as long as my previous sets, cupping or not. I like the feel of these tires and highly recommend them.
