I have heard pretty much nothing but good things about Southwest Moto Tires (http://www.swmototires.com/) from those who have used them around here. Somebody posted on STN about another tire place that had prices comparable to Southwest Moto Tires, so I thought I would relay the link.

American Motorcycle Tire (http://www.americanmototire.com) also seems to have some other tires that SW does not have listed like the Pirelli Diablo Strada. They said that orders of 4 qualified for free shipping. Suthwest Moto Tires offers free shipping (ground delivery) with the purchase of two or more tires. All single tire orders will be charged $12.00 for shipping.

Here are the tires for my Sprint from SW Moto, I figure they are common sizes for most of us.
Avon - $223.90
AV45 ST 120/70ZR-17 Front - $94.95
AV46 ST 180/55ZR-17 Rear - $128.95

Metzeler Z6 - $209.90
120/70ZR-17 Front - $92.95
180/55ZR-17 Rear - $116.95

Michelin Pilot Road - $227.90
120/70ZR-17 Front - $99.95
180/55ZR-17 Rear - $127.95

Here they are from American Motorcycle Tire (http://www.americanmototire.com)
Avon - $228.79
AV45 ST 120/70ZR-17 Front - $93.00
AV46 ST 180/55ZR-17 Rear - $119.00
Shipping to Texas - $16.79

Metzeler Z6 - $208.79
120/70ZR-17 Front - $83.00
180/55ZR-17 Rear - $109.00
Shipping to Texas - $16.79

Michelin Pilot Road - $223.79
120/70ZR-17 Front - $90.00
180/55ZR-17 Rear - $117.00
Shipping to Texas - $16.79

Summary w/ shipping
Avons: SWMT $4.89 cheaper
Metzler: AMT $1.11 cheaper
Michelin: AMT $4.11 cheaper

With shipping for two, they are about a wash. Be sure to tell us how the customer service was. One thing that I noticed was Alabama was about $3.00 more for shipping than Texas and Utah was cheaper, I guess they are using the FedEx Ground distance rate schedule from the west coast.
It is always nice to have good options.

I ordered a full set of tires for my Victory and a rear tire for my wife's Intruder via Southwest Moto Tires website. We ordered the tires on Sunday and received them via UPS today, Tuesday. Two days from ordering to delivery. Prompt email confirmation of our order. Tires are in perfect shape. Prices are extremely competitive. I've found a new tire supplier. Thanks, bluedog, for the link.
