Lightbulb Help!!! Urgently need a rear Metz tire for an LT in L.A.

I have a friend visiting Los Angeles and he urgently needs a new rear Metzeler tire for his 05 LT. He needs to get back on the road sometimes on Sunday but his rear tire won't make it home.
Does anyone have a spare ME880 that he can purchase from you and pick up either this Friday or Saturday??? Will pay you in cash, or will buy you a new tire and have it shipped to your place; your pick!
Please call me at 818-480-2102.
Thanks in advance!

For her I climbed the highest mountain!
For her I swam across the deepest ocean!
For her I walked through the largest desert!
And then she left me... She said I was never home!!!

Hi Gilles,

can't help you, but are rear ME's really that hard to come by?

I know they are not your favorite, but HOH usually stocks them. Last time I bought (June '06) I paid $167.

If you don't find a tire, and don't want to call HOH yourself I can call for you.

Let me know ~

Thanks Ted, I'll have my friend give them a call if we cannot find one elsewhere. My buddy doesn't have an issue with HOH.

Hi Brian, it seems that not everyone carries them, and my buddy is in an urgent need or we would have ordered from SWmoto in AZ.
We may try Honda of Hollywood (a name that will forever live in infamy! ) although I hate giving them ANY business... but it is not for mor me.

Garage
Gilles,

I have a rear ME880 that's a bit over half worn sitting in my garage. It's still good for several thousand miles. If you can't find a new one, you're welcome to this one at no cost. There's even a Cycle Gear very nearby that can mount it if your friend needs.

All lower 48 states plus Alaska on the K13GT in two weeks . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Thumbs up Thank you Ken

for coming through.
My friend was very appreciative. The tire got mounted at Cycle Gear for about $20.00. Real nice folks there.
Your tire will be on the road headed East tomorrow or on Sunday.

Jay, thanks for the offer.
We got the used tire from Ken and rode a couple of miles to Cycle Gear to have it mounted.

Yes, the rain seemed to tapper off as soon as "Your Friend" started home. Gilles, tell "Your Friend" to ride safe.

Yeah, I've heard of this "Your Friend." Well, he's alright in my book!

Thanks guys! I will tell "my friend" you all wish him well.

He is hoping to avoid the heavy rain and the heat, so I am not sure which way "he" will go, but I am sure I will read an RTE report in the next few days!
