  • Buying tyres

    Just curious for the average cost, and well priced dealers?

    For instance my first quote for Pirelli Diablos was $494, and Michelin Pilot Road 2 at $500 pair.

    Who do people usually prefer to deal with?

    Any help appreciated

    I do not mean to pry, but you don't, by any chance, happen to have six fingers on your right hand?

    In complete darkness we are all the same. It is only our knowledge and wisdom that seperate us. Dont let your eyes deceive you.

          420-500 for pretty much any of the name brands tyres for bikes are great people but I choose to support the bike shop that looks after my bike. Up to you in the end.

              Bought last 6 sets of tyres off Pete, great bloke......great prices..............

              Last tyre change, the rear tyre was loosing air, he replaced the valve first, then the complete stem, then re-seated the tyre...........all for nothing..........nice bloke.......

              Plus, he will try to help, even if it is out of hours....................

                he has fit every tyre i have ever run for the last 10 years.

                i have never asked him how much or go through any haggling bs. once he noticed i kept coming back the tyres became cheaper.

                he also does my chains and sprockets, because i trust his work which i think is more important than saving $10 here or there.

                  Craig at Pitstop. He has always done the right thing by me and greets me with a cheerful 'oh no, what are you doing here'.

                    My mate just picked up the back and front Pilot Power 2CT's for his R6, I think he paid $590 or something like that at Tires for bikes. They have the good prices and stock of the most popular tires. Quick and friendly service too.

                        Have shopped around over time and found Craig at Motorcycle Pitstop to give
                        the best deal to suit me.

                        And a plus, he has shitloads of other gear in there as well.

                              Have to put in a plug for Aaron at Rilusi in Morley. Did me a very good deal on Diablos, even scrubbed them in for me.
