That's a great price. I got mine brand new off Ebay for $230 the pair including shipping, no tax! Fitting here is about $20 per tire off the bike and $30 on the bike. I wonder how much they charge for fitting if you already have the tires off the wheels?

That's an unreal price!
They must have bought a truck load to be able to do that.

Hey Chris!

Yeah....thought I'd come on over and check it out here. Do you know how much Twisty charges for just the fitting of a tire and the balance?

If you buy them at the shop they'll install them free on or off the bike. to include balancing I think.

I think he's having a problem with his tire installing thing... something about it scratchin rims on stock OEM rims or somin... Brighton Superbike (@ Rec) installs tires off the bike I think for $30 a piece.... a bit higher than what I like to pay but....

He had rubber on the wand thing that you use to put the bead over the rim lip but the rubber is all gone (cheap quality) and it will scratch the rim... at least that is what it sounded like to me when he told me...

Carry Concealed Weapon.

I am a firearms instructor and (among other things) teach the state mandated training class required to obtain your Michigan Concealed Pistol License.

If you are thinking of of getting your license or know somebody else that is, feel free to PM me or email: [email protected] I also have killer deals on firearms, holsters, knives, night sights, flashlights and more.

Then again....you're in the Peoples Republic of Ann Arbor. Do any legal citizens even OWN any guns there? JUST KIDDING!! If I can be of any assistance, just let me know!
