Question Looking for LT Tire Installation in Charlotte NC

Does anyone know where I can have new tires installed on my 05LT in Charlotte NC? I'll be there on Monday Aug 18th and Aug 19th. I'm coming from Toronto and my rear tire will be a little low by then. BMW-Ducati of Charlotte wants 95 bucks if I buy the tires there but they charge almost 2X as much as Dennis Kirk for the tires. If I bring my own tires they charge 128bucks. Seems pretty steep to me.

Re: Looking for LT Tire Installation in Charlotte NC

You might try Rua Motorcycles in Indian Trail (suburb of Charlotte.) It's a family owned shop and is usually reasonable. Ken or Jan (Miller) should be able to hook you up, BUT the odds of them having the tire you want in stock is slim. Have you considered buying on-line to get the price on the tire and having it drop shipped somewhere? I would bet they would go along with that. Service Manager is Mike Green -nice guy and extremely conscientious.

(If you happen to call them, tell them Mark with the '61 panhead sent you. I couldn't hoit!)

Huh?

Tires I bought at Charlotte BMW, they didn't charge to put them on the rims and balance. I took the wheels off and hauled them to their shop.

You sure you all understanding each other correctly?
