Thumbs up Where to buy tires?

Hey everyone,

I'm looking at scoring a pair of Heidenau K60s for my '09 DL650, they seem to have a good track record with users and my stock tires are way too bald for the Vancouver winter weather.

My local shop says they can score them for 300$ + 100$ install, but I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations on how/where I can get a pair [and install] for less.

Thanks guys!

My favorite place to buy tires or anything bike related is RevZilla. They always have the best deals, fastest shipping, and best customer service. Getting them installed is probably going to cost you around the same unless you remove and reinstall the wheels yourself.

Google 'Canada's Motorcycle' they carry Heidi's and ship for free. But some motorcycle shops will charge more to install customer supplied tires.

I order my last set of mitas e07 dakars from twisted throttle Canada. orders over 350 get free shipping.

The Mitas have about the same wear as the heidis but are cheaper

Canada's Motorcycle is not a Canadian company. I got stale dated, nearly 5 year old tires and was really pissed. But they did sort it all out and make substitutions of new rubber at their cost. Always Always Always check the date codes when buying tires.
Pete's Superbikes in Montreal is the best, new Metzler Tourance tires must come right off the ship from the factory where ever that may be, fast service, completely automated and cheap shipping to Kingston Ontario.
