    Tire deals

    I got a Metzler ME880 for the rear of my K bike for $98. Shipped to the house it was only about $110--no tax and the warehouse is in Ohio. Fast service and no problems. Check out www.motorcycledreamshop.com

    I went local...

    I went to my local BMW dealer/servicer who had Metzlers and Dunlops to name 2 brands.

    They removed the old ones, mounted new tires, tubes and balanced them. I supported a local business, and when comparing the internet prices, it cost me just a few bucks more per tire. Worth it to me.

    That said, I've heard many people say this place is good:

    I bought some Tourances last year from Motorcycle Acc Whrse. This year and only 3000 miles later the front 21" tire tread has dry rot cracks around the knobs. They were supposed to be new,probably were, just old. so BEWARE!!

    Very pleased with this source

    SWmototires.com

    I've bought tires from these folks for almost all my bikes. The tires are always fresh and the prices excellent.

    If you buy from them, be sure to give the owner crap about making his mother-in-law pack and ship the tires!
