Tire Warmers...$150.00

I have seen a few people looking around here for tirewarmers. Found a deal over on the WERA board and they have had pretty good reviews. Check out www.tyrsox.com, this price is only good until mid-december, then they raise the prices, than again back to full price in January. I don't work for them, just passing on a good deal.

I used Tyrsox for my first season and they work well. They are a bit more trouble to put on than Chickenhawks, but if it is what you start with you'll never know the difference. They have the wind guards that go on over the warmers to hold heat around the rim in REALLY cold weather, but here in Tx you won't use that piece much. Good price on a good product for the occational trackday rider. I sold mine used for 150.00 a few years ago, so this is a smoking deal.

Does anyone have experience with this website and ordering from them? I emailed and got a not-quite-so-professional email back. They also only want cash or check...
I think I'd feel better if someone has already ordered from them and can confirm they got the stuff.

apparently he's well known to racers on the WERA forum. He does include a phone number if you want to contact him.

If he's got a good rep on the WERA board that's usually a good indicator.

Like Buck, my first set of tire warmers were Tyre Sox.

Although they are somewhat of a pain in the to use, and are not as durable as the more expensive models, they do work.

Thanks, exactly what I needed. Just wanted to make sure the guy was for real. He does need to work on his typing and 'business etiquette' skills though.

I haven't dealt with them, or bought anything from them. But, i've watched the wera board for a while, and Richard the tyresox representative is around a lot. in general, the product seems good for an entry level warmer....they have no adjustability, and some people claim they cook tires. i'm surprised at the cash or check only comment, as i've read to just call him with a cc number and you'll be on your way.

fwiw, the 'normal' pricing on these warmers is 175. and i've seen the 150 special several times.

This was his email:

"HELLO PATRICIA, YES, JUST NEED YOUR ADDRESS, WILL SEND POSTAL IN THE MAIL, WITH A COD, FOR 175 CASH OR CHECK, THANK YOU, RICHARD"

Yeah, I went and did some research on their board. Apparently this is the best bang for your buck tirewarmer, for the occasional track day rider. If you are racing and they need to be taken off in a hurry then you should look to chickenhawks, suzuka's, etc. The warmers can be used with or w/o the sock, and are non adjustable as far as temp. Looks like he makes usually does repairs for free and just charges for shipping if you mess someting up on them. I may be looking giving him a call on these. Oh yeah heres my cryptic e-mail, so I guess his typing is universally bad, or he's a man of few words.

"A CASH PAYMENT VIA POSTAL COD WILL BE REQUIRED OF THIS PURCHASE.... AS THERE IS NO SPECIFICATION ON THE POSTAL AS TO THE NATURE OF A CHECK, COULD BE PERSONAL OR MONEY ORDER BUT NO PLASE TO SPECIFY...... THE MAIN FEATURE OF TYRSOX.COM IS TOTAL THERMAL SATURATION, THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO GRILLING OR SPOTTING, WHICH IS COMMON TO CONVENTIONAL BRANDS... THE OTHER MAKES DO NOT AND WILL NOT SHOW YOU THERMAL IMAGES OF WHAT THERE PRODUCT DOES TO YOUR TIRES, OR YOU WOULD SEE SEVERE GRILLING .....
TYRSOX IS HALF THE WATTAGE, 600 WATTS TOTAL PER SET AS OPPOSED TO OTHERS THAT COMMONLY ARE 1000 TO 1200 WATTS TOTAL..... EVEN THE SO CALLED TEMPERATURE CONTROL MODELS SEVERELY GRILLING THE TIRES, AS THERE CYCLE ON AND OFF CONSTANTLY, NEVER DEEPLY HEATING THE TIRE CARCASS...... OK, LISTENING FOR YOU, THANK YOU, FOR THE PROPOSAL, RICHARD LERUD"

Well, I disagree with his bashing other brands to pimp his.

Tyre Sox are what they are, a good entry level tire warmer. No more, no less.

If you go to the CMRA or AMA grids you'll typically see Chicken Hawks or Suzuka warmers on a lot of the bikes they're durable, consistent and work well

I did email him back and asked why the website says $150 and he wants $175from me? I also asked about creditcard payment over the phone.

I am still debating whether I should get them or not but this is turning out into more hassle than I thought.

I think the 175.00 is with the shipping, 150.00 is the price of the warmers.

Have had mine for 3 years now and they still work great. At a fraction of the cost you cannot beat them. It may take you 10 seconds to pull these off as apposed to 5 seconds on chicken hawks etc...

here is what they look like on my bike.

Tire Warmers...$150.00

Okay, does anyone still have the link to ArturoC's thread? I cannot find it and he doesn't allow PMs.

Thanks!
