Where to buy motorcycle tires ?

Is it a good deal to buy tires online & have them installed at some store. If yes any recommended website or just google it.

Or just buy at any Kawasaki store

Yea, but you'd think that someone that's been a member since 2006 would know where to buy tires

not necessarily so, his judgment and understanding are in question because of the whole NY thing.

Discount motorcycle tire in Pasadena installs them for free if you buy a set from them. They are cheap but sometimes scratch rims so look the wheel over with a tech before they do it.

Sometimes I do it for close friends or stranded riders..Not in the business...and, I barely have the time to maintain my own bike...

I always suggest people to take it to the shop.. where they guarantee their work, and can afford to fix what they damage..

south central race center! not only can they take care of your tires, they'll also set up your suspension.
