Tire websites
« on: April 15, 2014, 07:53:10 pm »
Hey ya'll,
               There's a bunch of different websites out there to get tires from and they all got they're perks. However, If I'm gonna buy JUST tires, I'd recommend this website: http://www.americanmototire.com/catalog/
You pay just what u see, even if it's one single tire. I've consistantly compared them to other big websites like Motosport.com and Rockymountainatvmc.com, Motorcyclesuperstore.com and Revzilla.com. I think because they only deal in tires and accessories is why they come out on top time and again. No shipping charges. Right on. I just got in a Perelli MT-90 150 for about $126. $10-$15 cheaper than the competitors. Nice  8)

I think Revzilla would match any verifiable deal BTW.     I have found that Revzilla is the best online option for my purchases as long as they HAVE what I want.   I love the service, the shipping times are awesome...and you build up kickback towards future orders.

Picked up some tires from https://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/  - actually the best price around for the Pirelli Scorpion Rally Dual Sport tire - and also the MotoZ i/t tire.    These are my new favorite tires!

I bought some Heidenau K60s finally. Here's the rear comparison to My old Perelli MT90 Scorpions

And here's a comparison to the fronts

I enjoyed the MT 90s for what they were: 70/30 tires. They did GREAT on road  ;D ... Not so much offroad  >:(
I've only been on asphalt so far with the Heidenaus, but they are even BETTER than the MT 90s on asphalt!  ;)
We'll see what they offer offroad, but they gotta be better than the old Perellis. Way bigger knobs and grooves.
But be forewarned, they are extremely tough tires to put on. I originally bought a 150 rear and actually broke the band while installing it. Bummer  :P
So I ended up buying a 140 rear off of Rockymountain. I bought the original pair off eBay for $275. Expensive tires, but they seem to be worth the $$$

Fed Ex just dropped off a Heidenau Scout 140/80-18 rear tire I bought from Rocky Mountain. In the literature I've seen on this tire it has a strip down the middle linking the center blocks to help with tire wear. The tire I received has no strip. Is the strip a recent addition and maybe I got an older tire? Or does this size not have a strip? For what it's worth I'm happy it's not linked. I'm thinking it will work better off road.

The strip down the middle is size related. No strip on 140/80-18
