Need new rear tire

I need a new tires for my 2005 V-Strom. What suggestions do people have for a quality tire that is reasonably priced? Can anyone recommend a reputable shop in Knoxville TN that isn't overpriced for tire purchase and install?

There is a specific forum page here regarding tires and suspension. You'll find tons of info and opinions there. Take into consideration what type of riding you will be doing i.e., street vs dirt, and go from there.

i'm not from Knoxville so don't know much about it. But I do know you're not far from Wheelers. Give him a call and ride on over. He's just on the other side of the gap from you.

Yup, ride over the dragon then to the bottom. Just before getting to Robinsville, Wheelers is on the right. He'll do the install while you wait. Be there early or there will be a line.
