The Dunlop American Elite Tire is the Official Tire of Sport Chrome
You can proudly roll on USA made Chrome and USA made tires!
The 180/55-18 is the only tire of it's size that has been tested and approved by Sport Chrome.
When purchased with a rear wheel on our website we will mount and balance using Dyna-Beads to prevent the need for any ugly wheel weights while providing a superior wheel balancing solution.
When running a 18x5.5 rear wheel this is the proper rear tire for all 2009 and later Harley Touring models such as the Street Glide, Road Glide, Road King and Ultra Classic Motorcycle.
From Dunlop's website:
"Dunlop’s American Elite is the only aftermarket tire line for Harley-Davidson motorcycles that is designed, tested and manufactured in the U.S.A. from domestic and foreign materials.
- Sizes available in black, narrow-white and wide-white sidewalls for older Harley-Davidson models.
- The American Elite delivers enhanced tire mileage thanks to an MT Multi-Tread rear tire compound that incorporates a long-wearing compound in the center of the tire, along with a lateral-grip compound on each shoulder for great handling.
- Dunlop’s American Elite is the premier aftermarket choice for Harley-Davidson riders in search of tires that deliver extended tread wear.
- Sidewall design proudly features the American Elite name."
