Funny, this one showed up on digest, but can't see on web site.

I looked at the Commander II front tire and it says it's a radial.
Is that unusal to have different tire types with the same name?

Hey Fred,

I just got an ad from Chapparal Motorsports about Michelin's newest tire. They
claim the new tire compound lasts twice as long as the competition's tires, and
that the new rubber compound is better in dry or wet weather.

I know you were thinking about what to get for the rear of your bike. This
might be the way to go. The price is certainly right. (I bet it goes up after
they sell a few of them.)

Here's a link to the Chapparal web page.
