Pretty much because I don't know any better. Thought I had plenty of tread left. Was expecting the tire to go a bit more "bald" (not that I planned on letting it get bald lol). What's a good road tire, for somebody who doesn't track, but might push it a bit on the roads from time to time? This will be my first tire purchase.

Don't forget about the $50 rebate when you purchase a set of Dunlop Q3's. This promotion is available exclusively at Dunlop Pro Dealer's through March 31.

It says nothing about "exclusive dealers" on that promotion. And also, if you guys are a dealer then you might want to contact Dunlop because you aren't even listed on their website.

It's a new program called Dunlop Pro Dealer. I have nothing to gain by offering rebates that don't exist. Just trying to help. If anyone buys a set of Q3's from us and has them installed they will get $90 back from Dunlop after sending in 2 separate rebate forms. These are two different rebate offers that can be combined. The $50 program is only good through March 31. The $40 rebate is good through the end of April.

I went ahead and got my tire replaced locally, because 1, I couldn't risk driving the bike all the way to you because the tire was in shape, and 2, I don't have much available time. However, I think I'm going to get my wife and I to drive our bikes up to your shop and have you throw on a set of Q3's for her 2013 Ninja 300. Closed on Sundays I assume..?

And my new tire now lol...

We are closed on Sunday. Dunlop Q3's are not available in the sizes needed for the Ninja 300. Is there another tire you would be interested in that I can price for you?

That's correct. Service charges $40 per wheel to mount and balance if you bring in the bike.
