house of paint is cheapest but it'll be a bit of a drive, motorcycles unlimited also has a good price on doing them.

that place will overcharge you like crazy. its like 40 a wheel off the bike... HOP does it for 10-15 Motorcycles Unlimited does it for 15 and both these sponsers will do it sometimes free when buying the tires from them. I would double check with them though.. not 100% sure on pricing but i know you'll get better pricing from our sponsers..

Not a bad tire but again its up to you on how you ride... talk to a sponsor. HOP, Motorcycles Unlimited and WWH all know their stuff... wild west honda has the dunlop q2s for 199 a set which is a great tire in my opinion pretyy sticky

If you just cruise around then maybe look for a sport touring tire to last longer. They still grip around corners for normal street riding

go get a set of Pilot Road 3

You should get 7000 or more out of a rear, and 12,000 out of a front (maybe).

They are a triple compound tire, hard in the middle and softer on the sides and a strip in the carcass that is sorta in between.

One of the best road tires for commuting, and general stupidity.

Not so good on the track, but will handle everything a 1 year rider can give them.

JMHO



P.S. Do go gettin' all stupid in the forrest, they do not have much of a sense of humor towards bikes.
