At Dunlop, we have served as the OEM (original equipment manufacturer) for the majority of Harley Models since 1983. We have rolled over 10 million tires in the last four decades. Over the years, there have been more and more Dunlop® Harley-Davidson® Tire Series thanks to our high-quality equipment and eye for detail. Dunlop is the only tire company that designs, develops, and manufactures motorcycle tires for Harley in North America—and that’s an advantage that directly benefits all Harley-Davidson riders.

How Do I Know I Need New Harley Davidson Motorcycle Tires?

Federal and state regulations state that you must have 1/32″ to 2/32″ of tread depth on each of your tires. Be sure to check the middle of each tire, as this is the portion of the tire that has the most contact with the road. While Harley Davidson tires are made of high-quality materials, you should look for defects. At Dunlop, we always thoroughly inspect our tires before sending them out on the open road.

Remember, motorcycle tires are continuously improving, and technological advances are boosting production, so getting a sweet new set of tires can make you feel like you just bought a brand-new bike!
