Re: Tire mileage
Just thought I'd add to Eddielo's post, you mentioned expense of getting the tires installed....Although I don't mount my own tires, I do find it is very easy to get the wheels off the bike and take them to the shop for mounting and balancing, which saves a bunch at check out! I tried the mail order tire saving thing, got a bad tire, the dealer that installed the tire said too bad that they didn't sell me the tire, or they would have replaced it free (of course) but because I brought the tire in, they had to charge to replace it...suck! I now buy tires from a shop and have them mounted and balanced to insure a good tire and free replacement if it isn't..and the shop didn't charge much more than online tire sellers.
