Tubed tires
« on: December 15, 2011, 11:25:02 am »
Ok, so my father-in-law just signed the title and handed it to me for the 1981 TS125.  I am now in the market for some dual sport tubed tires size Front tire size: 2.75-21 Rear tire size: 4.10-18 and tubes.  I've been looking on bike bandits website and saw the Shinko 244s were cheap and had nothing but good reviews.  Anybody know anything about these tires or have any other recommendations.  Also, is ordering online the best way to get tires or are there shops in the Maryville/Knoxville area that are reasonable?  ...remember people, i'm still wet behind the ears on this bike stuff so take it easy on me please :)

Great! Thanks! I was actually hoping to get some feedback on his place. I pass there every Sunday on my way to church so I know where he's at. Ill swing by there one day and check him out.

He saved me about 100 bucks over cycle gear. He doesn't keep a lot of non-harley tires in stock but can get anything overnight and only marks orders up 10%.

If he doesn't work out knoxvillian at mountain motorsports I am sure cfan get you a good deal on tires and tubes. Then you can bring them to my place and we will throw them on the rims.
