Are they a reliable and how do you know if a certain tire is in stock,prior to placing a order?

Yes, they are reliable. If I can't tell what I need, or want to know if something is in stock, I send them an email. I've always gotten an answer within a couple of hours.

Great service, have purchased over a dozen tires from them.
Tires are always fresh and arrive quickly.

I ordered a set of Maxxis Presa Detour from them yesterday at 2:15 pm pst. When I got to work this morning my wife called saying the tires arrived this morning at 7:15 am. 17 hours using the free shipping.

I ordered the Detours on the 23rd, they're being delivered today (the 29th). Not too bad, really. They shipped the same day (ordered before 2pm their time), and there was a weekend in there, plus I'm pretty far away from them.

They responded to my email query within an hour of my sending it, telling me that yes, they do have the tires I want. I ordered a pair of Tourance EXPs on a Tuesday and they arrived on Friday.

Luckly, when I started looking for tires, I found SW Moto Tires was located here in Tucson.

I went to their shop. It was clean, organized, and full of new tires. They had tires of every size and description.

While I was there having them mount and balance my new tires, two guys returning from Mexico stopped for new tires. They stood their bikes in the shade and removed the wheels. Since they were travelling, I told them to go in front of me and I would pick-up my tires later. When I returned, I went back into the shop. They (I forget the gentleman's name) had three huge stacks of packaged tires waiting for the UPS man.

I will purchase tires from them again.

Good luck.
