  • Tyre advice... where to buy?

    Need a new set for my CBR600RR... essentially looking for replacements Michelins as that's what was originally on it, and what I've grown to love and trust.

    Does price vary substantially depending on where I buy from?

    Any form of advice related to new tyres welcome!

    Thanks.

      Buy online, waay cheaper... Jake Wilson does them real cheap from the US. Front and Rear. Postage was about $55 when i did it last time, and they arrive within 6 days to your door. Then just get them fitted at a store somewhere near you.. will end up saving at least $100 doing it this way.

      There's a thread about it... here

                had to go to a honda dealer in Rockingham after the suzuki dealer wouldnt fit the michelins due to a legal liability issue.apparently michelins are not designed for busa's weight.
                pity u live just that bit too far from me Stoneville.

                  Thanks all for your replies.

                  Is anyone able to provide a time estimate from order to receipt of tyres from Jake Wilson? (or anyone equivalent US based online store for that matter?)

                    Hey mate,
                    there online store is great, gives you prices imediately and shipping prices dependant on value of goods you buy(not size/weight).
                    pilot power rear to suit my 00 zx6 is about $100 plus shipping i think front was about $80.

                    but just jump online and have a look at exacly what you want

                        Dude all bike stores offer pretty good pricing on tyres.

                        Just stick with one and develop a good relationship.

                          Do they?? we do over 10 tyres a year and have never got that good a deal, the money we save this year will pay for our workshop tyre changer
