Any suggestions or place to buy tires for cheap? Since I always see threads for car tires, thought to ask the experts smile

Thanks for all the help.

bikebandit.com generally has the best online prices for the Michelin Pilot Activs that my old bike uses.

Rocky Mountain was by far the cheapest when I put new tires on the VFR

Don't skimp on motorbike tires, a flat on a bike at speed can do you in.

I've bought several here. They often have sales, coupon codes. Good pricing with fast and free shipping.

SportbikeTrackGear usually has great prices on sport and sport-touring tires. They were the cheapest for the Pilot Road 4 tires I bought in early spring, once the various shipping charges from other retailers were taken into account.

I usually buy from either Dennis Kirk or Jake Wilson. Get good prices and quick delivery from both.

If you're looking for cheap tires, see if Shinko offers anything for your bike. The guy that mounts my motorcycle tires is a big fan of Shinko.

I buy new or "near-new" take-offs on ebay.

Pirelli on the front, Metzeler on the rear.

You have heard not to mix brands and tread patterns on a motorcycle, right? Every bike I've owned mentions not to do this in the owners manual.

I've bought several tires from J&P cycles. Price wise. they're in the same ballpark as the other online vender's. Within a few $$$ of each other. I always got the tires in 2 days at my door, but it took a few extra days to get the tubes ?. Same tires that Harley sells with "Harley Davidson" on the Dunlap tire casing. But alot cheaper then what the dealer wanted.,,,

I have been meaning to pull trigger on shinkos, but I am hesitant because of many people bashing them on interwebs.

BikeBandit.com has been my choice for the last few sets I've bought. They seem to turn over a lot of tires as the date codes have been quite recent.

As those two small contact patches are all that's keeping me and the bike upright I don't skimp on tires nor do I remount a used tire. I know I'm asking for criticism here from people who have been running used tires and never had a problem. The cost difference between fair tires and good tires are a lot less than my insurance deductible. I've also never been in a car accident of any consequence either and I still use my seat belt every time.

Thanks guys.

Yes, one is street and the other is dirt. The same products are available from either site, usually.
