New to the site.but searched and haven't seen recent posts about tires. Most posts about 10 years old, so I thought I'd start a new thread

Between my wife and I and gear we are now about 525 pounds. Yikes. (We've gained since last riding). I need a new rear tire before taking it out. Historically I've used elite 3. We don't ride on wet roads.
I'm not ready to darkside the bike.
Michilin Commander 2 seem to get reviews but 160/80r16 are what mile calls for and 85 are what commanders come in, as dar as I can tell.
I don't see them in stock anywhere online, so I'd say that's a good sign people like them in general.
Anybody try em on a gl1500? Any other suggestions for heavy weight rated tire?

seems like several years ago I remember Michelin stopped making tires for 1500 and 1800 Goldwings, I could be wrong but tried to look up tires for motorcycles on their site and nothing came up for me.
