Re: Best Place to Order Tires For K12LT
Believe it or not, it is possible to purchase a bad tire, one that is not as round as it should be!! If you buy it on the internet, then you pay someone to mount it, and you ride out, and it is wobbling to beat the band, you go back to the shop where you had it mounted, and they rotate the tire and show you it is out of round, not a bad bead seating, just a shitty tire!! Well, you pay them to take it off, you contact the supplier, they ship you another tire, you pay to put it back on, you can't ride your bike with the shitty tire, you waste a lot of time, good riding, money, and frustration, when you thought you were saving $20 bucks a tire.....Don't even ask me how I know about all this. Last time at the local Yamaha dealer, they quoted me a price for the tire I needed, I told them I could get it for $X and they gave me a much better price, and cheap install, no problems
