Help please

Motohouston...I am in dire need of a rear tire 160/60/ZR17 for my CBR500R. Who is the awesome contact at Wild West Honda in Katy? If anyone else can or has this size tire in stock, please let me know. I will be in Katy Friday hence the reason for WWH contact.

I am trying to shop local to buy a tire before running to the internet.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Currently I am to work. Car is in Katy

Thanks Scorpio for the offer...But 170 will be just a bit too wide for my ride.

Thank Chris...I will call BILL.

This forum is awesome!

Heck yes...even better for install. Is there any chance the rims get scratched or damaged during install? In all my years riding I have never had to replace tires on my road bikes...I know weird, but I always sold bikes before tires went out.
Thanks Chris!
