Have To Share- Best Tire Set Price

http://www.ridenow.com/product/detai...20/180SET.aspx

169.99 for a set of D208ZR. thats WAY good deal, granted older model tire then the qualifier, but for those looking for sticky tires for a bargin, you WILL NOT beat this price.

someone with a stunt bike could use em no doubt.... and ive never had a dunlop on my bike so i couldnt comment, but if i was dead broke and it was ride those or just sit and pretend in the garage i'd be getting em. I'm tempted to just for the price even though PP's are in the mail as we speak.....Maybe a late fall tire for tahoe lake riding. or if i wear the PP's out by July i gotta set to put on for GP.

Coming from a stunter,,,,I wouldnt use these! hehe. I know some people who are just starting that do..but once you get up into the higher stunts, you need MUCH more grip than what these have to offer.

Also, last time my friend had these, they used to get very 'soft' on him a lot.

No one here is endorsed by a tire company. We all swear by the Pilot Powers for one reason....THEY WORK!

DUDE! If someone pays you $170 to take tires, take the tires and the $170. Take the tires off, buy yourself a new pair of pp's at a $170 discount and sell the Dunsucks on fleabay. Think man, think.

Maybe a dated tire, but still a helluva price.... and like someone above mentioned....good for commuting. I know I paid over $400 for my last set of Michelins (mounted and balanced).

YA THINK???

i was looking at right at 400$ bought nad mounted locally.... and 246$ at my door plus 40$ to mount and balance, for 286$, i figured im not getting PP's on that cheap again.

and all the priase of the PP are limited to the originals, Michelin still F'd up and put out the 2ct's without developing enough, every person i know whos put em on says the sides get wasted WAY TOO FAST. You lose 2,000 or more rideable miles on the tire to get 1.6 degrees of possible lean...WITH A PRO ON IT.
