Vendor Help

It is time for new tires ion my VFR. I had been dealing with a local (Charlotte) dealer, however the last set of tires I got took almost a month to get, so I am thinking about ordering online. I can get installed for less than 20 bucks each locally. There are several companies with good prices, including Trax Motorsports, USA Motorcyle-Superstore, and tire unlimited. All of there prices look good, but hate to deal with an unknown. Does anyone have any experience with any of these vendors.

I have not done business with any of those vendors. But the best prices I could find are at www.motorcyclemart.com. Ive ordered a couple sets from them with zero problems.
Also check out www.motorcyclesuperstore.com.

What tires are you buying? Certain vendors are better for buying certain tires. That said, I HIGHLY recommend Southwest Moto Tires: http://www.tinyurl.com/4mbnd

I should have mentioned that originally, I am getting the Michelin pilot powers. I ran sports before, and loved them. I am currently running a Pilot Sport front, and Road rear. I am not real crazy about the way the Rear feels, it has a tendency to "wiggle" under hard corner exits. I definitely don't want to run it when I do my next track.
