Has anyone ever been told that mail order tires are junk? I was getting a price from my dealer on a new rear for my R6. When I told him I could buy it substantialy cheaper from any mail order company, he told me he would not install it because mail order tires were junk. Obviously he doesnt think it's mail order when he orders his tires from his supplier who ordered them from Dunlop. Just a reminder, don't believe everything your dealer tells you. There are some real clowns out there.

He's on crack.

Buy your tire online then take off your wheel yourself. Bring the tire and wheel to a DIFFERENT shop and ask them to mount it for you. You'll probably pay for about a half hour or so of shop time, maybe $30.00.

I just mail ordered 4 tires and one of them is just over a month out of production. That's the kind of junk I like.

Obviously he told you that since he knows you can get them 10 times cheaper online. Those dealers will do anything especially LIE to try and get your business! /images/icons/mad.gif

I always order my tires online and install them myself. I have this fear of dealerships messing with my bike. And Nottobright is right about the time to lie. I would also like to ad getting out of a ticket as a good time to lie.

I heard nothing but great things about the Sportec M1's. That will be my next pair. You can find them at many on-line stores.

Ihave just installed a set of sportecs on my 01 R6 & so far so good.They warm up much quicker than the dunlops & scrub in time is quicker as well. I bought them from mawonline for $238.0 shipped to my door.Who ever buys them will most likely like them better than there previous tire.
