    Question Tires - Where to buy & mount in Dayton, OH?

    I need to replace the rear tire on my '96 GS. The nearest BMW dealer is in Columbus. I can have buy and have a tire mounted in Springfield at Competition Accessories. Does anyone in the Dayton, OH area have other suggestions?

    Note: Maybe you can but mount your own tires but, I can not.

    I've used Tires Unlimited up on Wadsworth Rd by Needmore and 75. They had Metzlers in my size, but may just mount your tires if you buy elsewhere. I took the wheel off the bike myself, not sure if they do that or not. No complaints, usually get you in and out in half an hour.

    I called their listed number and it was answered by Auto Tech Unlimited. They do sell and mount tires, including motorcycle tires. I was told it would take a couple of days to get the Metzler NEXT $262 and $30 to mount off the bike and $85 if I brought the bike in.

    Comp A wants $242 for the tire and $128 to mount.

    So, what's the process for taking the rear tire off the bike? I need to lube the splines when I remount? With what?

    Might want to try posting over in the oilhead section. I started buying tires online and mounting them myself years ago to save some $$$.

    Try Sporttour.com. They are based off rt 4 in Cincinnati just south of the 275 loop. I was there a few weeks ago and looked at some tires. They have a onsite warehouse with I would guess a k of tires in stock. They also will mount and balance on site. Their prices are very competitive and selection is great.
    Seemed to be a good group. I will use them next time.
