Be careful buying tires...

Having heard some nice things about Kenda tires fro Dave0430 here awhile back... I have been shopping for a set for my 1982 1100 project bike.

i just need a decent set of tires to get it back on the ground where I can move it... and for the initial run out...

So I found a Kenda Kruz 140/90 X 16 at a well known online retailer for $167.95. Which didn't seem too bad until on a lark I did a search for the Kenda home site...

The same tire was $93.42... that is a significant difference. there were similar differences in the front tire.

Be careful guys... do your research...

I don't think I gave that much total $167.95) for the set on my son's V65.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

$56.90 for the front 120/90X18... that's less than half of "them other 'Super' guys!"

A $122.00 difference for the set.

Cha-ching!
