Never seen ANYBODY, beat these guys for delivered prices. http://www.twobrotherstires.com/

Their web site is not much, but give them a call. They have great prices and outstanding personal service according to several people that have used them. VERY fast delivery, personal service, and i would much rather support the little guy.

Try http://www.swmototires.com

I've been buying from them for several years and had nothing but great service. Comparing the pair deals on PR2's for my 07 RT, it looks like they are about 15 bucks cheaper.

Spring is almost here so anyone in the northern Midwest wanting tire changes/balance is welcome to stop in ,you take it off here,I'll use my nomar pro changer or you can try it out yourself.call me from the ananomous book up here in Wisconsin rapids.Plenty of camping space or one spare room to overnight it.15.00 per tire plus cost of a valve stem and weights in silver.If you bring your own that's fine but I have stems(bmw) for 1100rt's and can get what you need if you call in advance.Then enjoy the ride up here! Oh,I have a HF lift to make it more convieniant and cold home brew!
You can ship tires to my house too!

That was true then.......Not now.

I bought countless sets of tires for all my bikes from them for almost ten years. The grumpy owner sold the place a couple years ago and now the place expanded their product line. Along with the new products and fancy new web pages has come tire prices that are no longer the lowest. I went with another vendor for my PR3's a few months ago; SWMoto was not even close to the best price out there.

I've worked with motorcycle superstore for several purchases, from tires to apparel. I've always gotten exactly what I asked for, and often earlier than predicted. They're a well-run company.

I normally use Ken's Motorcycle Tires in Woodstock, GA. He usually comes in only $2 or $3 above what any online retailer can quote. But the savings on mounting when a tire is purchased from him is significant too. Plus he goes ahead and looks at other areas of the bike where's he's working to give you a heads up on anything. Small local shop. I'd rather give my money to him if I can. I've heard good things about Two Brothers too but Ken's is much closer to me.

I've had only good experiences so far with them as well. That said, unless you do your own mounting it pays to check prices with your local dealer (if you have one). My latest set were bought and mounted by them for surprisingly little more than the internet price. Plus you get that warm fuzzy feeling knowing you're supporting the local guy.

Supporting the local guy can be good.

It's always good to compare. Just ordered tires from SW Moto Tires as they were $12 cheaper than Motorcycle Superstore. My last order was from Motorcycle Superstore as they were $30+ cheaper than SW Moto Tires. Both orders included delivery.

Yeah, but it's got a really pretty $8 'filler hose!' :dance

Ah, but pay attention--this stuff comes in liters, not quarts!

So, $16.99 for a liter of 10W-40 is actually 16.99/1.056688 = $16.07 per quart, practically a bargain.

More relevant, of course, is 15W-50 which is $17.95/liter = $16.99 per quart, again nearly a bargain.

And, in the 4-liter jug it's only $15.36 per quart ... now we're talking!

This is only 15.36 - 12.99 = $2.37 more per quart than the Castrol Power 1 Racing 4T 10W-50 I'm currently using and which BMW recommends.

And a boxer engine is certainly worth more than a V-twin so why not the oil?

I mean, it's just wrong to put V-twin oil in a boxer, isn't it?

It may be just as wrong filling with quarts as it would be using inch-size wrenches, too.

On the plus side, I guess, the V-twin stuff would have to be able to deal with serious heat issues due to that engine's poor design.

I searched for the 10W-50 4T Mobil 1 that's found in Europe and which I thought Triumph dealers might have, but couldn't find it. I'd use that if I could. Yes, it's Mobil and not mobile.

Hah, Kent, you got me on "Mobil." Dang it!

I don't want to change this to an oil thread, but I just don't buy that the expensive oil is better than the Mobil(e) 1. And the overheating of the V-twin is one good reason to use it in a boxer. It meets/exceeds the specs.

But I enjoyed reading your arguments!

Back to the topic, MC Superstore.

MCS quit sending coupons out about 4 years ago. The 10% off an order, etc. type. They send out ADS, but not general coupons.

So I just placed an order with them for about $1600. I needed a lot of gear, especially dirt bike gear.

When they emailed my receipt, they included a code for 10% off my next order! And, salt in the wound, it is only good for 30 days. So, you can imagine my frustration. I dump $1600 with them and I get a 10% off coupon I can't use because it will be a while until I need to order anything else.

I called to cancel the order and told them why. They took 10% off this order, so all is good. But I think that is a crappy marketing idea. At least send me a coupon that is good for a year.

Their outlet is 2 miles from my office:)


They are incredibly supportive of the local bike scene and all around great people.

I got a brand new Kilamanjaro jacket from them this past summer for $130 out the door. If any of you ever come through Louisville, stop by. I bet you walk out with something!

It's funny, my one and only experience with MC Superstore was one of my worst Internet buying experiences ever. Got the wrong item, their mistake, and when I called to get a replacement set up, I was met with absolute disinterest. It was clear that, on two separate calls, with two separate individuals, they coundn't care less whether I ever got my order straightened out or not. I was invited to return the the item that they had mistakenly sent me, clear from looking at the original order and the shipping invoice that they had simply sent the wrong item, at my own expense. After they got it back, they would decide what to do next, possibly then refunding my shipping and sending out the right item. Not even an offer to send the right item immediately at my expense and credit me later. Nope, I had to wait for them to get the first item back.

Forget that! Living in a small community with few local resources, I do a lot of Internet buying. Occasionally mistakes happen. It's just part of doing business long distance. I have no problem with that. But with all of the sources out there, competition demands that customer service be top notch. It was the lax attitude that convinced me to never ever do businessheston these guys again. Sounds like I'm the only one that ever had that experience, but I think I will still just take my business elsewhere.
