Re: Ordered my new tires today!

After waffling (ala Chain) over where to get new tires, I finally ordered through a local small-time shop. DMT offered the lowest prices I found on the Avon AV45/AV46 combo - $83 front, $123 rear, plus about $24 shipping. I called several local shops today, most didn't want to even try to compete with volume mail order places, but one guy (who I know, somewhat) came up with the same price for the rear, and $103 for the front. I would rather spend my $$ with local business anyway, and after the tax/shipping offsets, it's not that big a difference. Plus I will have the tires in 2-3 days. DMT quoted a shipping time of 5-10 working days! What the hell is up with that?!

P.S. - Chain! You had better be right about these tires - I am counting on your recommendation. But now that you have jumped ship, who knows?

Re: Ordered my new tires today!

Good deal mini.

Just make sure they're not seconds. I heard Avon had several production runs of tires that failed QT and dumped 'em cheap. Watch your six buddy.

...when you FINALLY get them. Just in time to store the bike.

Seriously, why are you changing tires right now - given your location, or are you a manly man and ride in the Winter?

Are you talking about Chain changing tires? I am the one changing tires, and I live in the desert where one can ride YEAR ROUND

Re: Ordered my new tires today!

I've ridden them harder than any tire I've had on the bike and highly recommend them.
