Back tire change

Pulled in the garage two days ago fine and when I started the bike the next morning adn tried to back out she felt a little heavy...turns out there was a 10 penny nail in the back tire and I was sitting on about 6 psi. I know the wheel is held on by T50 bolts and I was planning on taking the wheel and flat to a local dealer and getting it swapped so I don't have to load the bike on the trailer, anything I should worry about? Also, thinking about a Michelin Road Pilot 4 GT for a replacement...I know there are tons of tire threads but I couldn't find anything on this particular one..any thoughts?

Thanks,
Brian

I just put a set of GT's on my bike. Can't speak to life but they handle great. I've had a bunch of PR3s and have gotten great life. You won't be disappointed.

Removing wheel and taking it in will , depending on shop, save you $25. It's not hard to do and you will bond with her.
