Does SW Moto Tires still have the best prices online?

Since moving to VA from Florida, my riding miles have gone way down, so it's been a while since I've bought tires. Do they still have the best online prices?

Just ordered some Battlewings from Jake Wilson (Motorcycle Parts, Discount Motorcycle Tires, Motorcycle Gear, & Motorcycle Accessories | Jake Wilson) a few days ago. They had the best price at the time and free shipping.

YMMV

All the discounters are going to end up within $20/set with shipping, and usually within $5, so you're certainly not going to get burned. Which one will be the absolute lowest on a given day is a tossup, but I've had good results with the following:

Another vote for Jake Wilson:

Haven't ordered from Rocky Mountain ATV yet, but lots of people have. They sure do seem like a branch of Jake Wilson (nearly identical wording, policies, etc.), and sometimes offer slightly better prices.

An excellent vendor, with good prices. Always worth checking:
American Motorcycle Tire

Dennis Kirk has revised their tire pricing policies, so they are now often very close or the lowest. Plus, you can get other stuff on the same order for convenience. Make sure you factor in their dipshit $5/tire "fee". Also, they show actual inventory levels on their site, so if you just gotta have a tire fast, they're very handy:
DennisKirk.com

And if you need an oddball size, or you're located near Dayton, OH, Tires Unlimited is always worth a look:

Another vote for JakeWilson also, this is where I ordered mine over the Summer. Easy to deal with and price was very good. I would deal with them again.

It's kind of strange, how the mountains pay us no attention at ll. You laugh or cry and the wind just keeps on blowing.

Tires Retailers

Another vote for Jake Wilson. Ordered two rear Avon Distancias and received a discount for being over $200.00 plus received them the fallowing day with no charge shipping.

I just bought my new Anakee2 front from RockyMtnATV. They had the lowest price and free shipping and since they're close by I had it in 2 days.

I've bought 6 tires this year from Jake Wilson. Very happy with their service and prices. Prior to this I've always used SW Moto and only have good things to say about them also. Pricing wise, Jake Wilson was better this time especially with Mr. Rebates earned cash back.

Just a coupla bucks, but hey -- you can go ahead and get the extra cheese on your next few Whoppers! :mrgreen:

It's all about saving a few bucks wherever you can find it, right? I'll try JakeWilson this time.
