Best Price for Mich Pilot Road 2's?

Hey, looking to buy a new set of Michelin pilot road 2's, looking best price you guys recommend, and possibly mount and balance. I have a place to mount/balance, but it they can do it all in one spot, the better.


Thanks!

CALL THEM and ask about availability, it may be something they have to order, which would only take a few days to arrive.

Get in touch with Tony, and check Chapparal-racing.com. They've beaten everyone's prices in the area. But then there's mount/balance.

I've Thought about but it's weird, Michelin actually recommends Pilot "Pure"s for my Bird. But I want Good Wet traction. (i Ride almost daily and want great traction IF i get caught in the rain, and i just mainly run out in the country with a little bit of fun.)
I though about the Pr3's, (they're even cheaper than the 2'!) but people keep recommending i get he Pr2's still, but they are pricier for some reason. I appreciate the recommendations everyone. I'll give Him a call

Would you be interested in trying a Continental set of tires? I have a few sets of the Conti Motion sport touring tires in stock. $169 for both tires.

If wet traction is a primary concern, then you really need to give PR3 some thought. The additional sipes supposedly enhances wet traction compared to PR2.

I got PR3's for my C14 on recommendation from another C14 pilot that had PR2's and later switched to PR3's.

I agree, the PR 3's have excellent wet weather performance. $129 front $149 rear for PR3's is the sizes you need.

The best deal we have on labor is $99 for both wheels mount and balance on the bike. I have info for a member who can it do it for less, call me for his info. I can't post it or they send me a nasty message.

I'm glad it worked out. I think you sat in our waiting room about 30 minutes too long because my service writer forgot to call when as soon as you're bike was ready even though I reminded him twice. For that I apologize. If you need anything else please let me know. I owe you one.
