Avon Viper deal...

Yet another tire deal..I just ordered a set at http://zzrbikes.com

Buy the rear Viper, get the front for $18 shipping fee.

That's 2 sets of tires from Pirelli and Avon I've bought this week.


I'm good till spring!

Good gawd man!!

I just did the Pirellie deal too!!!

I'm told that the pirelli will wear very fast and that 3k miles is a distant wish on these sneaks. Is this AVon any better?

I have about 3700 miles on the Conti RA I put on and the dealer told me I was needing to replace the "balloons" I called tired asap.

Thanks for finding the deal for me!!

Interesting prices

Motorcycle-superstore.com 168.99 + 10.00 shipping = 178.99

Ridedirect.com 154.99 + 10.00 Handling = 164.99

Affordablemotorcycletires.com 140.00 + 18.00 Shipping = 158.00

http://www.americanmototire.com/ 137.87 + 11.54 shipping = 149.41

tireexpress.com 134.99 + 13.00 shipping = 147.99

zzrbikes.com 134.99 + 13.30 shipping = 148.29

That's for the v60, 180/55/17

I looked at about 5 more sites but many of them didn't care the V60.

Anyone else find them cheaper?

Thanks,

Gravity

Cool - the brotherhood of the k-bikes.com come together to find some killer deals on tires!

I just got my front Pirelli Corsa III today(less than 4 days) after sending in my forms....suhweeeet!

I know the owner of zzrbikes.com and he's real good to deal with - can't ride worth a damm, but he does do customer service real well.

0302-0116 - 180/55 ZR17 Diablo Corsa III Rear
I found this one on the website and it appears to be the size that will fit my KR but this particular tire is not listed on the BMW recommended list for my bike. I am quite certain that this tire would be fine, but I have heard that because of the weight of the bike you could only use certain tires.

Sportrider, have you installed your Corsa tires yet? Just wondering what your take on all of this might be. Getting ready to ride the Dragon's Tail next month on my to PA and I need a new back tire before I go. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

got another one!

Sent in my Avon promotion request form today. I decided to purhase from zzbikes since you started the thread and there was less than a $1 difference between him and the lowest price. I like to give the business to "good guys" anytime I can.

I'll have Pirelli and Avon tires available for my October trip to Las Vegas. I wonder which set will last longer?

I'm thinking I'll try the Pirellis on the trip which will be about 3,500 miles.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Gravity

Where do you get the form to send in? It doesn't say anything on the web site.

Pirelli tire deal.

Hi Guys,

I went with the Pirelli Deal too. And " zzrbikes.com " were great to deal with. Scot sent me a "PDF" file through E-Mail to send to Pirelli. He said my rear tire will ship today. I have 4500 miles on my 06 K1200s. I am on my second set of tires. The second Rear tire is about half shot. My first were the Bridgestones. The rear picked up a nail at 2500 miles or so and was about done anyway. I went to the Metzler M1's which i like a lot better. At least they felt better in the twisties to me. run 36/42 psi and check them at least twice a week.

We will see how these work out.

Regards,

George

tire

I can't believe that it took about a minute to buy the rear tire using PayPal. That was so simiple. I am waiting for the email so I can claim the front tire. According to the site once you purchase the rear he sends an email with the claim form.

Thanks for the tip
