I go to House of Paint Designs (HoPD) in Spring. Tony and his crew take good care of their customers and have great prices.

I hear they have a really good kind of oil there as well, but I just can't remember what it's called.

Man your are just next door to me.
Depending what kind of tire you are looking for you could even get it at Cycle Gear. The only difference is that they don't take your bike in. Only the wheels.

Click the link below for our tire prices. If you don't see the tire you are looking for, give us a shout and we'll get you a quote. FREE mount and balance if you bring us your wheels off the bike. If you ride your bike in, it's $30 per wheel (most sportbikes).

Sam's Cycles is downtown, quite a bit closer than Spring. Sam's Motorcycle Sales, 605 Silver Street, Houston, TX 77007
Take T.C. Jester to Washington, make a left, and then take a right on Silver Street. About 10 minutes from where you stated you are at.

I think P1 racing was mounting tires for $10 at the last Fastline track day.

Next one is Nov 1.

But it's going to take them a week to mount your tire.

There are two that I reccomend. One is a....on here.....their tires are sticker priced at 45%-75% more than Motorcycles Unlimited/HOP/Ks.

Example:
180/55-17 PR3
Unnamed sponsor: $325.00
Motorcycles Unlimited/HOP/KS: around $160 (IIRC)





I know of two shops that will NEVER see a dime of mine LOL










EDIT:
Sarcasm........but they are twice as much as the good guys here.

Patrick, Tony, and Ks Motorsports, Wild West all have great tire prices
