I need Tire

I have a 2002 r6 and my rear tire is starting to wear. I thought I might as well change both tires. Can anyone tell me where I can go for a good deal?
thanks

Re: I need Tire

I live in southwest area (bellaire & hwy 6)
I can take the back tire off but I don't think I can with the front. I only have the bake stand.

Re: I need Tire

I am aware of the 2 rear to 1 front but I just bought this bike about a month ago and I feel safe with brand new tires. :biggthumpup:

I have tires but they're race take-offs... Sticky . I live off of Hwy6 and Beechnut.

Yeah usually discount can hook u up with mount/dismount. Some of them tell u they don't have the machine for bike tires but it's bullshit... the same machine they use on car tires does bike tires too.

How much do you charge just for a rear tire? We live really close to each other. I live on Bellaire and Synott.

Re: I need Tire

Use your rear stand to raise the rear and then remove your lower fairings. You then place a 2x4 under your headers and use a floor jack to raise the front. Is super easy and pretty steady. I say you do that and take your wheels to whoever.
