Tire Purchase

Hello everyone,

I was wondering where everyone usually purchases their tires? I am going to pickup some Anakee 3's for my DL1000. So far the best price I have found on both is from Rocky Mountain. Just wanted to see if there are any other sites I may have missed that could have a better price or sale.

Thanks!
Jeff

Rocky Mountain is my go-to spot, but American Moto Tire also has some good prices on rubber. Revzilla is hit and miss; sometimes they're good on pricing, sometimes they're waaaay over the other places.

my last order over the phone was on a Wednesday morning and the tire was delivered to my back door on Thursday.

Thanks guys, I checked both and they are the exact same or more than Rocky. I'll likely stick with Rocky.

Thanks again!

Some of American Moto Tire's prices are better, depending on the tire of course. If you still want something like a Battlewing at a reasonable price, American Moto is your best bet.

If you are having a shop install them ask them what they'll charge for the tire as well.
On my last TW "Bent Lever" beat online prices.

My tires come from who ever has the cheapest price (including shipping). Shop and compare. So for me that has come down to Rocky Mountain ATV and American Moto Tire, about evenly split between the two over the years.

I use Denniskirk.com., like the knowledgeable tech support. The various vendors seem to be within a few dollars of each other, so that's not a big issue.

I used Cycle Gear for my recent GSXS tires. I ordered online, shipped to store, then I took the wheels in for mounting. For my PR4s, they had very competitive pricing. Would definitely use them again.

No matter where you buy look at the tire mfg date.
A couple years ago I bought a set of tires from one of the REALLY BIG bike stores and one of the tires was 5 years old. Needless to say, I
returned the tire and haven't bought from them since.
