Re: New front Bridgestone bike feels squirrelyy
When I called this morning, Bob's BMW said come on in and we'll replace the front... Great! No arguing needed. However, when I got there, they informed me that Bridgestone no longer makes a radial tire rated for an LT. I wanted to stick with stones so, instead of changing the front tire, we changed out the rear for the front-matching bias tire. They never acknowledged, or apologized that on Saturday they sent me out the door with mismatched tires. They did, to their credit, discount the rear bias by about $90 from what they called their "regular" price almost matching internet pricing.
I think I'll miss the radials that I ran for years.
Are the bias tires giving me a harsher ride or is that just my imagination?
I went in for only a new front tire expecting to spend about $200, including labor and wound up spending around $700 for a front tire, front brake pads, a rear tire and labor... and shop supplies, etc. etc. Oh my, that hurts!
