Have the bike at the dealer today and told Dunlap no longer making the E4 for the front unless you want white walls. Still making it for the back, I said well what now he says they are using the Metzlers, as that is the only tire that is proper size unless you want an E3 on the front and an E4 on the back or whitewalls. Anyone else hear this and what did you use instead of the E4's.

I just put Elite 4's on my RM three weeks ago before my knee surgery. I wanted the bike ready to go when I heal up. The Dunlop website still lists the Elite 4 for the front as well. Maybe a mix-up?

My guys (Indian of Denver) have front and back E4’s in stock — have not heard anything about Dunlop stopping production on front tires. (Why would they do that, anyway?} For OP / @Brutus1996, do you trust your guys? Are you sure they’re not upselling you to the Metzlers?

- afterthought : I’m on a 2015 Roadmaster, which at least for that year (and at least some of the subsequent years) was the same as Chieftain. I just assume that still holds true but you know what they say about assumptions... what year is your Chieftain?

You s/b good then — if you don’t want the Metzlers. I hear they are great tires and as @windhorse said, they are actually slightly less $$ than the E4’s. Their only disadvantage is that they will not have the longevity of the E4’s — I’ve got nearly 20k mi on mine and the Metzlers typically run 12k mi from what I’ve heard/ read.

I just put on a pair of the CRUISETECs. They feel good but I only have a couple of hundred miles mostly highway. Looking forward to see how they handle on my challenging roads and in the rain. I hope to get more 12k out of them. Replaced my e3 at 14k
