Please recommend a tire shop for a en-route change. (MI, WI, MN, ND, SD, IA, or IL)

Hey all,

I am about to leave on a circular trip crossing into the US at Port Huron, North to Superior, along the South of Superior through to Grand Forks, Minot, then South to Rapid City, Sturgess, and back to Ontario likely passing Chicago.

My tire is nearing its end (maybe a couple thousand miles left in it) and I was thinking of getting a new one somewhere on the road.

Can anyone recommend a tire shop somewhat along the route I mentioned that may have a Metzeler Tourance (not EXP) 150/70-17 in stock and could mount it for a reasonable price?

Capitol Motorsports in Winnipeg, Manitoba are good, but you should order it in advance because they dont stock many tires...

Why Motorcycles? Because Golf, Soccer, Football and Baseball only require One Ball

If you go thru or near Marshall, MN Paul's Cycle Shop does a good job, charges nothing to mount if you buy the tire there. Small shop so arranging to have the tire ahead of time would be advisable.

2005 ST1300
2009 DL650A - Suzi Q
1983 GL1100i - sold
1973 CB500 Four - long gone
