Online place to buy tires?

What's a good site to buy tires? The local dealer charges WAY too much.

Tires

There are TONS of places to buy tires online. Here are a few that I've used:

www.accwhse.com

www.chaparral-racing.com

www.compacc.com

www.brocktoncycle.com

Keep in mind that some dealers will not mount tires or parts not purchased at their store, so you may need to call around to find a place that will work with "bring-in" parts.

Secondly, almost every store has a mounting/balancing price difference for tires purchased at their store vs bring-in. Even still, it's been my experience that you will always save money by buying tires online.

I've ordered from discount motorcycle tire a couple times... good pricing and FAST shipping.

I'm on my second set of Metzeler M1's and I love 'em. I might try something different next time. Maybe the Pirelli's

I'm not loyal to any brand. If a $100 tire is just as good as the $200 tire then by all means give me the $100 tire. I don't care if it says ACME on the sidewall.
