Cyber Monday / Black Friday Tire deals

New to buying m/c tires. After a lot of research and debating I've decided to go with BW 501 & 502, thinking of getting them from either Chaparral or mc superstore.

My question, to those who've bought tires from either vendors, do either of these vendors have any good cyber Monday/black Friday deals or should I bite the bullet and pay their current prices.

Thanks in advance for your input!

Shop the crap out of it and dont forget to check local bike shops to see if theyll give you a deal (sometimes theyll wheel and deal if you want to have them change the tires; this is what i did). Not sure about your tires, but when i was shopping for my PR3s a few months ago, motorcyclesuperstore was the one of the highest of the online vendors that i quoted. Shophms.com and bikebandit were the cheapest two.
You might also call a few of these vendors. Sometimes theyll give you a bit of a discount if you ask for it. Solomotoparts gave me a 3% break last year after i asked about it when i was buying crash bars, seat, etc for my KLR

American Moto Tire is also one to look at.

Great service and have found them to have lowest prices on 880s lately for example.

Comparison shopping is good advice. I have bought my tires, Bridgestone Battle Wings, from Jake Wilson. They seemed to be the best deal when I am buying tires.
