Yeah that sounds good, I needed a rear bad and went to Coleman's and they raped me I think I paid over $200 for installation and they fucked up my rim and tried to tell me they are not responsible. BS.


Can't choose between the R1 and the 10R so I am keeping both but settled with an 1198S when I came home

Keep it up!!!!!!!

Not really cause you still gotta get them mounted. Unless you know somebody that works at a shop or can mount them its not cheap. 60 + per tire.
Fast Lane can do it for 377 mounted on the bike if you can bring just the wheels itll be cheaper.
If you buy the tires somewhere else its 63 per tire. If you do the pemier membership you can get em done for 25 each

Sounds just fine. They're generally going to be near the same no matter which shop you go to.

Online will always be cheaper.


Good luck getting them mounted for less than $100. Oh, and that's if you bring in just the wheels. Got a stand?


It doesn't always pay to pay less.


Right up the 1 hole.

Just go to your local shop. Whichever shop is most convenient for you. Build some rapport with them. I can absolutely promise you it will pay off in the long run.

Dunno if the price is good but those are great tires from what I hear.

Wow what do you all pay for mounting down there? You can get 15 a tire if you take the wheels off and 35 on the bike at CAD. The Harley shop charges 65 on the bike for both tires.

When ordering online, dont forget about shipping costs.

Also, many of us have great relationships with local shops, and would be willing to help a fellow .netter with gettin' the wheels off the bike.

Like I said Fast Lane's is close to that and much cheaper than 377 that Mike said.

T, it will be about 300 for the set with them mounted and balanced. I just called and talked to them. If you buy them for 230 online, you will have to pay anyhwere to have them mounted and blanced.

Lee is right. It is better to maybe pay 20 dollars more to get in good with the local shop.
